There was a rumour floating around at one stage they were going to get a full senior team ban from league and everything. Probably thought it wouldn't stick though

I just think we're going down a dangerous road with this nonsense. There will always be flare ups, when pride and passion are involved. Some posters on here reckon that involving police or heavier suspensions from the county boards will deter offenders. It won't. There is a life sentence in jail for murder....yet we still have murderers.

Police should never be involved with GAA business. Be it criminal or a slap during a game.  We talk about the dirty joe slap from behind? What about the late high elbow? Is this going to be assault? Or the clothesline tackle that we see more and more of? Once we have police involvement, then all of the above can be reported to the police. You're knickers are all in a twist.

It's club championship season, tempers run high. Consider that 200/300 years ago, the same parishes wouldve been fighting to the death in the name of sport.
So anything goes?
Judas hits are ok.
Kick a man on the head when he is down?
Draw a hurl on a man from behind?
If the Ref misses it you are grand to go on.

Careful now, therealdougal sounds like a tough brut!

I doubt he even played, or at best played the Z team/ beer belly team.

Ah now MR row, we eat townies like you with your soft attitudes for breakfast.

Aye proper softies here in Milltown  ::)

I'm just glad all the crying has died down. Cavanagh was an accident.  And it's a well known fact that if it wasn't for blow-ins from the country ye would have no medals down in Milltown.

Course, youd think wed 15 blow in ya wally! You again show yourself to be a dafty never mind what I suspect, just a barfly. I doubt you owned a pair of boots too  ;D

Sorry MR2, but I'd safely say that if we were to hire a cleaner to dust down each others medal collection, yours would  be finished for 10 o'clock tea.

Well you say that, but we are not counting ladies football here.

I've no idea who you are or what club you support or not play for, you are just a random nerd/WUM as far as I'm concerned who says they have medals. (I just said you don't own a pair of boots!) Why bring your fantasy medal count in, means nothing.

It's the condoning of slaps and digs in games which result in broken eye sockets, losing teeth and guys getting hidings and being traumatised by it, and saying, sure its part of the game! Its that,  that shows you up as a balloon.
Anything I post is not the view of the County Board!! Nobody died in the making of this post ;-)

You brought up that i was a barfly...not the sharpest MR2. No point arguing anymore with you. We're getting nowhere.

On reflection, the ban fro next year's championship is quite lenient. Neither team would be serious contenders, nor be expected to progress far. With the back door, it's a loss of 2-3 games at most

My take also. Very lenient. Ban both clubs from every competition for the maximum period permitted. And ban identifiable individuals for the same length of time.

Very easy to do with few county men involved. (And, therein lies the real issue).

BTW, same punishment with recent rows in other counties, including my own.

Do the current rules allow this?

Would you ban Slaughtneil senior hurlers and footballers for something their reserve footballers did as well?

Short answer is Yes.

Long answer is Yes, because some of those reserve football scoundrels will be lining out against Ballycran next weekend and because there were incidents in the senior match the previous evening and because there is a track record of similar behaviour over a number of years.

Great club and community though, but not exempt from appropriate sanctions.

If they don't, they should be amended to do so. The Harps and RGU folk would think several times before jumping the wire again.

I dont doubt it. But would the county board get away with it? Didnt the GAA basically make up a rule for TMcCann after hair gate and that didnt stick?
