18 week ban for Jordan Flynn, these bans should change to games instead of weeks IMO.
How do you suggest that would work, given that almost all underage players pass into a higher age grade within 1-2 years and a 5 or 10 match ban for any 20 y/o playing U20 would actually be a no match ban?

Inter County ban whatever the grade and carried over. In other words Mayo couldn't play him for the seniors until that ban ends. As it stands Mayo could now play him in the FBD in January missing no county match at all. Same goes for Kevin McStay games instead of weeks should be his ban.
Is the ref going to finally blow his whistle?... No, he's going to blow his nose

So if he didn't graduate to intercounty seniors, as many U20s won't, he'd never serve a minute's suspension?

And if he's not picked for intercounty seniors until he's 25 or 26, he'd have to serve a long suspension at that point?

Both of those scenarios are insane.

Much better for him to serve his sentence now and most likely miss out on all club activity for the rest of year for what was a very serious offence.

But if it's purely intercounty he could play with his club a week after the red card. As it stands he'll probably miss about 10 club games between senior and u21. He's unlikely to be brought straight into the seniors after that.

Look Jordon will get his ban, a deserving one but this gawd bless us and save us brigade that surrounds GAA need to go away. Several Mayo people said he should never play again for Mayo , my response was to get a grip , if he his any addition to Mayo he should be added.

Did the kildare player who spat at him get banned?

These bans are so stupidly arbitrary in length itís laughable to suggest changing it from time to games without addressing the many inconsistencies and numerous cases where bans are overturned or reduced first.

The punishment doesn't fit the crime. Will Mayo seniors ever pick a hothead like that though?
