With the summer well underway, and the lack of Gaelic Games leaving a massive hole in our weekends, thank God for the innovative reaction of Ireland's TV stations. With TG4 airing two All-Ireland Gold outings every Sunday, and eir Sport showing classic matches all week, we're more in tune with the history of the GAA than ever before. The Sunday Game have not been left wanting either. Every Sunday, they've hosted highlights of great games from recent years with fresh analysis, as well as some interesting interviews. Tonight's episode looks like it could be the best yet.
Wexford manager Davy Fitzgerald is always great joins Des Cahill in studio for tonight's show to discuss a wide range of topics, including his passion on the sideline.
Most interestingly, a snippet released by RTE shows Davy addressing his long standing falling out with his former manager Ger Loughnane.

It's a subject that always causes much debate. If you're being paid to do a job as a pundit, shouldn't all old kinships be put aside for the value of honest appraisal. Shouldn't managers and players have thicker skins and not take it so personally? On the other hand, does it go too far sometimes when the pundit appears to be having a go for the sake of it, purposely burning bridges to make his name as the "honest" pundit?
Either way, we're looking forward to hearing more of Davy Fitz's perspective on tonight's Sunday Game.
