Fermanagh’s Tomas Corrigan has lashed out at The Sunday Game
Tomas Corrigan has criticised The Sunday Game for only showing two minutes worth of highlights from Fermanagh’s clash with Roscommon.
In what was one of the more exciting fixtures of last weekend, Fermanagh came back from five points down with six minutes to play, to beat the Rossies 1-14 to 0-16.
Corrigan told The Irish Daily Star, ‘I thought it was lazy and as an inter county team we deserve better. But that’s The Sunday Game for you – it’s rubbish. It was a bluff. I’d say all they saw was those 90 seconds highlights reel and just called it on that’.
In a broadcast that lasted one hour and fifty minutes, the Fermanagh star was particularly critical for the lack of analysis adding, ‘Instead of commenting on the match it was a case of “ah, poor oul Fermanagh, they never do well”. Like, we beat Roscommon, and they got promoted to Division One. If anyone else had have done that, they would have been talking about the game’.
On the night, The Sunday Game, gave preference to games that had already been televised that day. This seems to be at the core of Corrigan’s complaint, as the lead football fixture on the programme was the one sided Leinster Final.
