Davy Fitzgerald has blasted RTÉ and urged the broadcaster to recruit pundits with managerial experience.
His Wexford side were beaten by Waterford on a scoreline of 1-23 to 1-19 in the All Ireland quarter-final.
The Wexford manager launched an impassioned defence of the style of play used by both Wexford and their conquerors - Waterford.
It was after Henry Shefflin and Michael Duignan both criticised the game plan.
Duignan tweeted yesterday:
A visibly irate Fitzgerald responded: “I think Michael Duignan and Henry have had a go.
"Let me say this straight out, Michael Duignan and Henry have never managed a team at a high level.
"The people need to wake up. If they want the same one or two teams to play hurling and be successful, that’s fine.
"Myself and Derek are trying to bring teams to the fore that haven’t been to the fore in a long time. I’m very strong about this.
"It’s great the likes of Michael Duignan, he should’ve had an opinion on something recently and he didn’t when he should’ve stood up, it’s time Michael Duignan stopped this messing.
"The job Derek McGrath has done and the stick he has taken is totally unwarranted. What he has done for Waterford in bringing them back to the top is incredible and I am backing him 110%.
“You tell me that’s bad game of hurling? Some of the scores, short and long ball, every sort of ball or do we just play the long ball and hit it? I don’t agree with that. I think they are totally out of order.
"I think RTÉ should go and have a look at themselves and get analysts who have been on the sideline and know what the story is about and that’s how I feel strongly about it.
"Easy, easy, knock people. I’d like to see their track records when it comes to managing because it’s a lot different from playing I can promise you that."
