Wouldnít be like a Burren pr*ck to be ungracious in victory. Think you are forgetting the fact that your minors got an absolute example made out of them about how to play football by a seemingly weaker and the underdog in the Harps.  Celebrate your clubs success by all means but donít make a d*ck out if yourself

i'd say you'd get pretty short odds on them both being reinstated after an appeal. these type of punishments never seem to stick.

GAELIC Life understands that Ballyholland and RGU Downpatrick have today been informed that they will be excluded from next yearís Down Senior Championship.

The punishment relates to the recent brawl that broke out between the sides in their league meeting in Kilcoo. Correspondence was delivered and both clubs have also received heavy individual punishments too from the Down CCC.

While both clubs were anticipating heavy sanctions, championship exclusion is likely to have taken them both by surprise. Although neither club was in a position to confirm, appeals seem inevitable.

What would acceptable punishment be?? If this is the case and they are omitted from next years senior championship it sets a very dangerous precedent.

It sets a prettt good precedent in my view - if 14 of your players jump a fence to scrap in the car park, youíre going to miss championship football. Seems fairly reasonable.

Yes I agree it should act as a good deterrent, but we all know there will be heated games over the next few years and boils over but not to the same degree as was witnessed in Kilcoo, will them teams also be expelled? Or do you have to clear the fence to warrant an expulsion. Where is the line drawn??

I think itís an exception for actively pursuing the other team outside the wire. You didnít get a slap breaking something up and react in the heat of the moment, you actively went seeking the confrontation.

The person who videoed it and sent it out will be popular in their club now, assuming theyíre from RGU or Ballyholland

That punishment is prob about right. But yes where is the line drawn. Would a brawl on the field.warrant same punishment? .
