This Is What Joe Brolly Thought Of Tyrone Back In 2002

This Is What Joe Brolly Thought Of Tyrone Back In 2002
By PJ Browne Updated

This video of a Saturday Game broadcast before a Tyrone and Derry round three qualifier in 2002 emerged on YouTube yesterday but was then blocked on copyright grounds. It has since appeared again on the video hosting site Live Leak.

It features unaired raw footage of Michael Lyster and Joe Brolly talking before the game. Lyster first builds up the game and then introduces Brolly, who he calls a veteran of these clashes. Lyster says that Brolly has assured him that he hasn't been in the pub but also that he intimated that he couldn't watch Tyrone play Derry while sober.

Brolly then recalls a gala GAA dinner in Tyrone where he got up in front of a jeering crowd and called them "Tyrone bastards" and goes on to quote his brother who works in Tyrone as saying that "they are fuckin' savages", but then dismisses this as nonsense.

The two then discuss Tyrone football with Brolly saying that their biggest problem is that they've never won anything and there's too much desperation in the county. He also says that he doesn't believe they'll win anything because they don't look like a traditional football team.

After this the video cuts away to pictures of the Derry team emerging onto the pitch with Marty Morrissey calling out changes to the team and Brolly and Lyster discussing changes to the teams before the Saturday Game intro plays once more.



The video has not been removed from Live Leak but is back on YouTube again.
