    Good to see the Dublin-based media venturing far from the Pale for their coverage as usual.

    Bohemians on TV for 2 out of the first 3 games ? Really ?!

    Would you rather see Limerick v Bray on TV? I'm sure that would attract a huge viewership to make it worthwhile for Eir Sport.

    The same tired arguments every year around TV coverage. I'm just glad to see a game on this Friday night.

    There are many worse things to complain about with the TV coverage than what teams are shown.

    Bray on telly sounds great craic.

    Imagine Tony O'Donoghue doing his pitch-side interviews.

    "So Dave, 2-0 down coming up to the break, but can I ask you to comment on this press release your chairman has just sent out?"

    I think you mean rovers and cork are on 2 and 3 times each against a random opposition club.

    First game is the biggest derby in LOI football.

    Second game features last year's champions.

    Third game is between the two teams expected to finish in the top 2.

    No problem with any of that tbh.

    In fairness to the TV networks, Dalymount is one of the few grounds that looks half decent on TV, by LOI standards. For a big game (like the derby or Cork, Dundalk) the Jodi would be at capacity or thereabouts and the Des Kelly carpets end will also be quite full, so on TV at least it will look like a good crowd. Also I think it's worth noting that it's one of the few grounds in the league where the camera position is at a good height and distance from the pitch, which makes it easier to watch on TV.

    Good to see a match being tevelised from Waterford also, they've a fine ground down there and I think it will look well on tv, even if the running track takes away from it.

    I'd rather see Dundalk v Derry on the 20th April, for example, which is undoubtedly the stand out game that day. But instead we're getting Bohs (again).

    Anyone who tries to pretend that broadcasters in Ireland don't try their damnedest to stay as close to Dublin as they can when it comes to LOI live fixtures is in denial.

    You expect Bohs to finish in the Top 2 ?! Only in the TV appearances league

    He said the third game, not the fifth game.

    We must be looking at different lists. I'm looking at the list in post 26, which is for both RTE and Eir.

    Or maybe you are making some joke that I don't get.

    I think Blues v Rovers is only the third league game ever shown live from Waterford. One in 98 v Shels and 03 v Derry. A few cup games and a play-off but never league games.

    Bohemians must have the biggest appeal outside of the regular top 4.

    I'd agree with that alright. Would've thought all games involving the consistent top 4 of recent seasons would be the best for promoting the league and attracting more viewers etc.
