He is not a man to mix his words but it was a surprise that Michael Duignan called Sky Sports coverage a “disgrace”.

The former Offaly hurler was visibly annoyed on the Sunday game when he started talking about the fact that Sky Sports had the rites to the Kilkenny Waterford extra time thriller on Saturday night.

“To me, the biggest disgrace of the weekend was on Saturday evening, that that Waterford and Kilkenny match wasn’t shown on free-to-air in this country,” he blasted on The Sunday Game.

“I think the Sky deal is so wrong on so many levels and it’s not because I’m in RTÉ, working for The Sunday Game.

“My parents are at home, my father’s 83 years of age, a savage hurling man. Why should he have to go the pub, he doesn’t go the pub, to watch a match?

“They have enough money, there’s enough money in the GAA, how much money do you want? What about the people who support the game all of their lives, and they can’t watch it? I think it’s disgraceful.”
