The Irish Examiner are reporting that Joe Brolly could be in yet more trouble at RTE.
The GAA, which as we know, takes an inordinate interest in the comments of Sunday Game pundits, is apparently furious about Brolly's caustic criticism of Munster Final referee, Padraig Hughes.
Brolly reacted to Hughes' contentious penalty call by making the assertion that 'Paudie wouldn't know a penalty if it bit him on the arse'.
As he set about elaborating on Hughes' shortcomings in even more flowery detail, presenter Darragh Maloney intervened rather vigorously and forced him to move along.
Such was Maloney's zeal in shutting Brolly down, one could be forgiven for suspecting there was a producer frantically yammering in his ear.
In the wake of the Marty Morrissey business, Head of Sport Ryle Nugent released a statement announcing that Joe had been warned that future comments of a similar nature 'will not be tolerated'.
When Boris Johnson insulted the people of Papua New Guinea in a Daily Telegraph column, a contrite Johnson announced that he would be adding Papua New Guinea to his 'global itinerary of apology'.
Joe Brolly's own apology tour has not required him to leave the country yet but it has involved an extensive number of recipients. In successive years, Sean Cavanagh, Rachel Wyse and Marty Morrissey have all received an 'I'm sorry' from Joe.
Whether he gets the door or not, it's clear that the Joe Brolly that we all know and love (well, some of us do love him) is being neutered.
