Didn't the Hurling clash with the national football team's match which was on RTÉ Two? I might be wrong on that.
If I'm not isn't RTÉ Two the usual home of football whereas RTÉ One usually shows other sports when there's sport on Two.
The complaints would have been about the lack of football in HD if the sports had been swapped to the alternative channels so the focus should solely be on lack of RTÉ One in HD on outlets other than Saorview rather than one sport being "demoted" to RTÉ One.
This is how it went in RTÉ Land
Executive 1: So we have clashing games
Executive 2: Hurling on 2?
Executive 1: Yeah and Soccer on 1
Executive 3: Sport during Prime Time on 1??
Executive 2: Yeah suppose can be having that
Executive 1: But its the All Ireland Final
Executive 2: And 2 is really the home of sport
Executive 3: But its prime time on 1
Executive 1: Alright I can't come up with any other real reason why it'd by on 2 over 1, clearly prime time is more important
I'd say HD and what sport on what channel never came into the discussion.
