    Bull****!!

    if that was the case, Rovers, Bohs, Pats or Bray at home would be the only games they show!

    It's EirSport that are showing Dundalk v Harps.
    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.

    Good coverage from EirSport. RTÉ are only junior football level.

    At least one Bohs v Rovers match tends to get aired every season, no matter how both teams are doing.

    It's hard to justify airing Pats at the moment, and Bray is like a graveyard.

    Whether it's RTE, Setanta or Eir Sports, it's denying facts to pretend that there isn't a disproportionate coverage of games involving teams closer to Dublin than those further away. Without doubt the stand-out game tonight was Derry v Cork. Yet Dundalk v Harps got aired. Let's not pretend that distance isn't a factor.

    If Soccer Republic can have cameras covering games at Maginn, probably no reason why a live match couldn't be done there.

    Eir showed a game in Cork last week. They've shown four games this season and none of them have been in Dublin. RTE have shown five, one of them in Dublin. Seven out of the nine games have been in Cork or Dundalk, three in Cork and four in Dundalk. Only one of the games has not involved one of those teams. Understandably they're focusing on the league's two big teams.

    But, yeah, you're right, they just can't bear to leave Dublin.

    For the record, RTE have one stationary camera in Maginn Park. Any live broadcast of a game requires at least two cameras. If I was to make an educated guess, I'd say both RTE and Eir have looked at Maginn Park and decided they couldn't produce a broadcast that would meet their own minimum standards.

    Same reason why FAI Junior/Intermediate Cup games aren't shown live regardless of the level of interest. TV channels aren't going to make themselves look bad just so people on message boards can tick their boxes.

    There are only a couple of grounds in the league that can actually host a live broadcast. It's almost always down to the floodlight lux capacity. Maginn Park doesn't meet League of Ireland standards and would never be able to host a live game. Have you seen the views from the temporary press area alone? The press can't see the action from one of the 18 yard boxes. Besides all of this, there is just about space for one camera there. And it would also be a pretty brutal reflection on the league to be showing a game from Maginn Park. As bad as some grounds are in the league, showing a junior pitch on live TV would look absolutely awful. It already looks terrible on Soccer Republic.

    Eir sport have been very good in their coverage. RTE are just abysmal at the best of times.

    Let's also not gloss over the fact they want to show games that'll have big crowds and big atmospheres. You can guarantee that with Rovers v Bohs. It's a no brainer to show that game.

    Tends to be the way with other sports as well. People love to have something to moan about for the sake of it. Cork City and Dundalk are box office, the league's finest silver. It's very understandable that they are showcased more often than not. They have set the standard for others.

    Harps v Cork moved to 7:15pm due to floodlight issue with live TV coverage.

    All games should be moved forward really as those floodlights are not fit for purpose

    Well, they're hardly that bad. There's worse in the league.

    Yes they are that bad but in this league the standards are so low its ignored. Bray are the only other ones I can think of that are equally as bad and not just this season
