Did he collide deliberately to take him out of the play?
I dont think so.
But we are back to the main issue with the black card, it is very hard to tell in alot of instances.
If there is any doubt that it was deliberate, then he shouldn't have gotten a  black card.

Looking at highlights last night at Dublin players getting in Peter Harte's way as opposed to colliding you'd wonder should the card be for cynical play and off ball fouling.

As a Mayo supporter who has gotten sick listening to our own supporters carping on about referees I was reluctant to raise Rossfan's question. On watching the game on RTE player last night it struck me that there were a number of these "accidental" collisions during the game. Kerry's O Brien took out Cillian O Connor in this manner in the lead up to the play in which Boyle saved on the goal-line for Mayo about the 40 min. On laying off the ball he appeared to line up O Connor and ploughed through him. In fairness to O Brien and indeed Darren O Sullivan, no one but the player will know the real intent. The ref gets one chance to guess at it. Maybe Gough got it wrong. He wouldn't be the first ref to do so. At the risk of arguing against myself I could reference the replay in Limerick ;D ;D

I hope Darran Sullivan has black card rescinded. Pathetic dive from O'Connor. Surely GAA needs to be looking at play acting.  it worse than soccer at this stage

How will it help Kerry or Darren O'Sullivan now if the black card is rescinded , I can't remember a black card ever been rescinded ??

Ok, I see it now ,3 black cards lead to one game suspension, not really relevant for Kerry this year though.
