I disagree with so much of this post, that I actually cant summon the energy to dissect it.
It’s great drama, with the best players in the world (bar one or two), playing an intriguing (good for TV) format, where guys that are playing on an island (not Donabate) for most of their careers, get to feel the sensation of a team sport.
It brings out the best in some (Poulter is a great example of this…he is also a c*ck, but still a good example) and the worst in others (Tiger in the early years, lots of other US examples).
It is great viewing IMO, so I suggest you just don’t tune in. Many many others will.
