MAYO BOSS IN SCATHING ATTACK ON JOE BROLLY OVER COMMENTS BEFORE DONEGAL’S ALL-IRELAND WIN

first_imgMAYO manager James Horan has launched a scathing attack on former Derry star and TV pundit Joe Brolly.Horan said he didn’t want to take away from Donegal’s All-Ireland success but said Brolly’s claims that Mayo played a cynical fouling game were way off the mark.“Joe Brolly was very selective in his commentary on Mayo and in my opinion it was biased and I think he should have been checked by RTÉ.I think his comments were targeted against Mayo,” said Horan after a reserve county side lost by a point to Leitrim. “If you take any of the quarter-final games last year, I’d challenge Joe to go back and look at some of those and look at what the foul count was.“So what was his motivation for just selecting Mayo?“It’s nothing to do with Donegal and the All-Ireland victory. They were fantastic and absolutely deserved their victory. I’d just like to know what his motivation was for selecting one team and one team only when there were other games with a lot more foul count.”He said he was concerned at the timing of the comments on radio just a few days before September’s final adding: “The timing of it… I know we’re on about strategic this, that and the other but who’s to say the timing of those articles weren’t strategic. “But look we’re here today in Leitrim and they deserved their victory and taught us a few lessons. So we’ll take them and move on.” MAYO BOSS IN SCATHING ATTACK ON JOE BROLLY OVER COMMENTS BEFORE DONEGAL’S ALL-IRELAND WIN was last modified: January 14th, 2013 by BrendaShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:MAYO BOSS IN SCATHING ATTACK ON JOE BROLLY OVER COMMENTS BEFORE DONEGAL’S ALL-IRELAND WINlast_img
