Could not agree more its the thin edge of the wedge. Have been in the GAA since I started palying under 12 many moons ago but if this happenns no more buying and selling Lottos or paying membership the clubs will suffer. The suits in Croke Park strike again.

So we have to pay now to watch the big games in the summer? The same games that were free since the gaa has been televised. Absolute disgrace by the organisation.

Fully agree, its a total disgrace,
not fair on people and especialy old people
that look forward to the games, its all that's any
good on tv, pile of s;;;e on it most of time
and then paying tv liscence, shame on gaa.

I think its a good thing.
TV3 coverage was terrible.

Am I right in saying that if we qualify for Ulster semi that it will be one of the 14 pay per view games?

I'm not a huge fan of the whole sky sports deal but it definitely would be interesting seeing Monaghan get the sky sports treatment!! Hopefully there will be no female umpires or 'assistant referees' for them to slag off!!
