Is it just me or this man, a gaelic football manager afterall, getting a bit ahead of himself? He seems to be attracted to drama and publicity at every possible opportunity and has an inbuilt need to pontificate on every possible issue.
He seems to have an opinion on everything from penalty points to religion and insists on telling the rest of us about it.
Previously famous for his support of the Quinns in the border region he has recently taken to speaking at religious meetings and offering his personal insights into pretty much every subject under the sun.
Apart from the fact that i personally have every sympathy for his situation following his daughters death i find his constant use of his fame to sermonise a bit tiring and rather strange. He is supposed to be managing a football team and apart from his daughters death and sports experience what qualifications does he have to instruct anybody?
Would he not be better concentrating on his team who are'nt looking like world beaters lately?
Are those who appointed him not concerned all his additional activity in attempting to fix all the worlds troubles is distracting from his actual task of managing a team?
Is it ok for a GAA manager to continually intervene in national affairs and is his opinion relevant to anybody?
I don't hear Brian Cody commenting on every passing news story and if he did i suspect Kilkenny County Board would tell him to look after his team and keep his political opinions to himself. And rightly so.
Why does Mickey imagine his never ending stream of commentary on all matters is of interest to us?
Should he be attending politicaly charged events like those in support of the Quinns?
Does anybody know? Does anybody care?
I don't care a great deal myself, i'm just mystified by his recent prominence.
