The Waterford hurling legend John Mullane was speaking The Throw-In podcast and believes if the GAA are going to start charging people to watch it on the telly, then they should start paying the players. The De La Salle is spot on in his analysis.
“I heard people saying last night ‘Donal Óg is going to feel the wrath of the top boys in RTÉ’, it shouldn’t be the way. If he feels strongly on that and that’s his opinion, he’s entitled to give him opinion.
I am 100 per cent with him, I feel as strongly on it as well. I just think if we’re going down this avenue of pay-per-view, we’re cutting a lot of our audience out.
If they want to go down pay-per-view, grand, you’ve got to go and pay the players then. You’ve got to pay the players if you’re going to go down that avenue.”
