The Sunday Game didn't waste much time showing arguably the most striking result of the weekend, Fermanagh's dramatic comeback victory at home to Roscommon.

Somewhere in the region of two minutes of footage was screened, while the games that had already been shown live were given top billing.

The reporter announced that Fermanagh trailed by five points with six minutes left, just as Tomas Corrigan get ready to launch a sideline ball goalward. As the ball crept over the bar, however, the reporter informed us that the game was suddenly level. A rather pivotal period of the match was skipped over.

I thought it was lazy and as an intercounty team we deserve better. But that's The Sunday Game for you - it's rubbish. It was a bluff. I'd say all they seen was those 90 seconds highlights reel and just called it on that.

It was pathetic - '18 clubs in Fermanagh, wee Pete doing well' and paying lip service to a few refereeing decisions. It was terrible.
