The Outraged Reaction To TV3 Winning Six Nations Rights Reminds Us Of Ryle Nugent's Words
By Balls Team Updated

In an interview with Andrew Mangan of arseblog fame, Ryle Nugent spoke about his rationale for dropping John Giles from the panel for last summer's Scotland game in favour of Richie Sadlier.

My job is to make sure that we are planned for the future. I also firmly believe that the audience, subconsciously, doesn't like change... All the research would show it's (better to have) gradual rather than absolute change.

His words have special relevance in light of the public's reaction to TV3's sport coverage. While the ads were an annoyance, much of the hostility can be traced to the public's instinctive hostility to anything new or unfamiliar.

The news came through today that, from 2018 to 2021 (at the very least), Ryle will not be in the commentary booth for Ireland's Six Nations campaign.

RTE rarely get this kind of love under normal circumstances.
