WATCH: Donal Óg Cusack questions Sunday Game punditry live on air

Donal Óg Cusack was on the Sunday Game’s panel for the All Ireland Semi-Final and questioned some of the pundits past claims.

Donal Óg Cusack was back on the Sunday Games analysis team yesterday and he was a man on a mission. The former Cork custodian last month highlighted differences between football and hurling commentary and bemoaned the fact at that he though hurling punditry had become increasingly negative.

Cusack has always wanted to represent hurling in a positive fashion no matter what tactic managers have employed to get results. He is a great admirer of Derek McGrath and Davy Fitzgerald’s implementation of the sweeper system. Put simply Cusack believes managers should feel free to play whatever way they want in order to get the best out of their sides.

We all remember the Duignan / Fitzgerald spat earlier in the Summer while there has been a persistent tension between former players on sides of the punditry / management divide. Has the criticism been unwarranted or is it justified?
