Joe Brolly and Other Great Rants in Sport

Sport is such a powerful entity that awakens in us a passion and love for something that outsiders can scarcely understand. Friendships can be indefinitely put on ice as debates rage over the course of days and even weeks over matters of vital importance like whether Nani's red card was justified or why Cristiano Ronaldo is actually a better player than Lionel Messi. This unique passion is on show on a weekly basis on our television and computer screens as managers, athletes and pundits alike submit to their convictions and lay their strong opinions on the line to the glee of us viewers.

This weekend gone was no different as an All-Ireland football quarter-final match between Tyrone and Monaghan brought out the very best in one Joe Brolly who took issue with Tyrone's Sean Cavanagh's heavy-handed tactics. Inside is Joe Brolly's epic rant and with that, some of sports other great rants over the years...
