    Great to see a game on live almost every week - and most on terrestrial TV.

    Pretty staggering also to see that most of the games will be broadcast from locations outside of Dublin. Though the inclusion of a potentially uninspiring Drogheda v Cork fixture shows that old habits die hard when it comes to venturing beyond The Pale

    Some big matches listed there although the Drogheda vs Cork match stands out like a sore thumb.

    So Eir are only committing to 11 signals throughout the season to compliment the 17 already guaranteed by RTE?

    There's always one.

    I think it's brilliant that a) there's 28 games being shown, looks like 24 league games and four cup games, almost a game a week and b) there's already 6 of that announced in advance.

    I agree with you, it is brilliant, I'm not putting it down, but i'm genuinely asking do Eir have a contract agreed to show a minimum of 11 signals? I hadn't previously heard any details about how many matches they were going to show...

    I'm sure Eir will pick up more games during the year, particularly European ones.

    I assume Eir will pick up more than 11 once RTE fall short of their projected number.

    I'm fairly sure they've met the agreed 17 signals in each of the last few seasons.

    No idea what a 'signal' means but RTÉ2 will have 18 live games this season (including FAI Cup semis and final) and eir Sport will have 10 (including the EA Cup Final). There will be 36 episodes of Soccer Republic too.

    Is there long left in Airtricity's sponsorship of the league? Eir Sport could be a decent title sponsor with a keen interest in promoting the league.
    A Championship: 4 years - 8 first teams - 0 financially ruined. First Division '14: 7 first teams.
    Opportunity seems lost somewhere in between for new clubs/regions to become part of LoI family.

    Precisely .

    It's the word Ryle Nugent always used when he was interviewed last year so i'm guessing it's the industry term -


    I'll use something less aloof from now on. How about "telecast"?

    Bizarre, that must be a typo or somebody transcribing incorrectly. Never heard Ryle or indeed anyone working in sports broadcasting using that term and I work with them every day.
