What is it about bosses of sporting organisations? So many of them are dodgy, mediocre middle-aged/elderly men with a massive excess of confidence and little else. Absolutely delighted to hear this.

Indeed. The circus that has surrounded Ireland at the Olympics is overshadowing all the good things.

And didn't he refuse the ambassador accreditation to the Games because the president or Taoiseach were not attending?

Delighted.
His little tie up with Marcus Evans (multi-millionaire ticket scalper) and Pro 10 is falling apart at the seams.
Hope the crook is held in custody.

Well, more the two lads from Cork and Annalise Murphy. While we should be basking in their achievements, this greedy Hickey chap seems to be hogging it all. Although, something tells me he won't be enjoying the attention that comes from this.
