You must be a literal minded solicitor type?
YOU eventually conceded the ruggerball is not a bigger sport in Ireland than Gaelic football, hurling or soccerball.

Replying To PattyONeill:  "I don't watch rugby, hurling or soccer. The only time I check the soccer results is to see if Northern Ireland and Republic of Ireland both have lost as I don't support either."
Fascinating.

KillingFields, what is your definition of a troll, if you think that Tom is a troll then surely the finger of suspicion must point at me more so than Tom, yet no one has ever implied that I am a troll, - - directly that is.

No Tom is very much definition of a troll including his opening to every post. Use of tired clichés of cavan people as well
He's a wind up merchant.
No you aren't trolling at all

Are most sports reporters aligned to soccer and oval ball fraternity?

You don't support either yet you check results to see if they've lost....does it kind of bug you if you check and they win?

Well begorra its odious that some would describe a senior poster like Tomsmith as a toll, and as I dont hae a directory I dont know what it means.
AS for Killing Fields frae Limerick who got educated in Queens and worked in Coalisland I have to say that you seem to feel that all Tomsmiths posts are for fun
As the great Mrs T says Fools are easily led .
But back to the Sports reporters in Ireland and aligment to other sports other than Gaa, I just wonder would the rumour that a certain high profile club in Uk used to sends over admission tickets to several news outlets for high profile games.
Sure it you look at it if say a club sent 50 Tickets for a cup final, European game were sent over would it not cover most of the big news outlets.

Media focus varies. Some prioritize soccer and rugby over GAA. Inconsistency noted in coverage across publications and broadcasters.

Don't start the obvious wind up threads and use the "tomssmmith here" greeting and use cavan clichés then if you don't want to be considered a troll
