Could Jeff Stelling and company be reporting on GAA matches soon?

The Irish Independent is reporting that Sky Sports are in advanced talks with the GAA about securing broadcasting rights for Championship matches.
RTE will continue in its role as the main broadcasting partner of the GAA, but the move to include Sky Sports might upset some fans with the prospect of paying a subscription to see Championship matches. It's believed that the Sky package would feature up to 10 games, including two All-Ireland quarter-finals. It's unclear whether Sky's bid is in conjunction with another broadcaster.
However, there is a part of us which loves the idea of a very confused Chris Kamara (pic above) trying to report back to Jeff Stelling and the boys in the Sky Sports studios about what is going on in a match at Croke Park.
'Unbelievable Jeff, the ref is completely ignoring any handballs!'
