Video: Joe Brolly’s sensational rant about Sean Cavanagh and Tyrone

Joe Brolly has had many a rant in the RTE studio in the past but he outdid himself with his tirade against Tyrone and Sean Cavanagh in particular following the Red Handers win over Monaghan this evening.


Mickey Harte’s side progressed to the All-Ireland semi-final with a two-point win over Monaghan at HQ but as was the case last week, they came in for plenty of criticism for a somewhat cynical approach in the closing stages.

Cavanagh was singled out for a rugby tackle on Conor McManus when he was through on goal, a tackle that earned the midfielder – who was man of the match for the second week in succession – a yellow card.

Despite attempts from Michael Lyster, Colm O’Rourke and Pat Spillane to intervene, Brolly could not be stopped and a brilliant photo sent into us on Twitter by appears to show Pat Spillane a little bit frightened by the ferocity of Brolly’s rant.

So what do we all think? Was Brolly right, or were Tyrone and Sean Cavanagh merely doing what they had to do to win and playing within the rules, flawed and all as they might be?
