Same Suspension as as Darren Hughes. What is worst.? The same action in rugby gets an automatic 12wks. The Gaa Rules need an overhaul

Its not the same suspension as Darren Hughes, Hughes has gotten TWO MONTHS....

Anybody any clue what McCann was at??

Putting 2 fingers inside another players mouth is a very specific and targeted action. It hard to imagine that it was just made up on the spot. Was he trying to get the gum shield out and engineer a bite mark on his finger?

Irrespective of what punishment the rule book permits the incident is troubling and reflects very badly on the lad

maybe he was provoked?....  there was a a lot of sledging/goading/thrash talking goin on in Donegal fullback line   esp first half
If he’s provoked that badly then hit the man a box in the jaw or else f**k up and play the game. No excuse for that cowardly act when a mans lying on the ground.

Good thing there aren’t any Tyrone fans trying to excuse or justify what he did I suppose.

Sticking his fingers in his mouth is cowardly but boxing him in the jaw is excusable?

That's a very suspect moral ground. Punching someone in the jaw is as trampish as it gets.

I never said either was excusable, perhaps you replied to the wrong person?

By the way I suspect the majority of GAA supporters would consider the act of gouging another player as they lie on the ground a more "trampish" act than openly punching an opponent in the jaw. You seem fairly blinkered though.

I did quote the wrong post. The reply before that was the one I was referring to.

I would rather have an opponent stick their gloves fingers in my mouth than having a 14 stone athlete box me in the jaw. I would rather be spat on, bit or sledged than being boxed in the jaw. The consequences of those actions are unpleasant but nowhere near as dangerous and likely to have long lasting consequences than a box in the jaw.

So he has in effect just a one match ban?

Going by previous punishments for more serious incidents a one match ban was all he could have received but somehow he got a 2 match man. Regardless of the fact that he is injured it is still a 2 match ban.

If Longford pulled off a massive upset what would be the next game he would miss?

Anyone can lose the head and lash out at someone, but what kind of animal has a defensless person on the ground and decides to stick their hand in his mouth? That's on another level

As I pointed out in my previous post anyone can have a moment of madness and lash out. What has to go through someone's head though to gouge someone? That's not normal.

The same thing that goes through someone's head to box someone.

I know a guy who got a box on the mouth from behind during a game and got both front teeth knocked out. Over the years it has cost him thousands of pounds in dental fees. I bet he wished that guy had tried to stick his fingers in his mouth that day. I’d be fairly sure he wouldn’t have been able to remove his two front teeth. But sure it’s manly to punch someone in the mouth and that’s the most important thing.
That was never a square ball!!

I've always found it odd in a sporting context and GAA particularly that there is some sort of honour in boxing an opponent in the face but huge outrage at stuff like diving, verbals, spitting, gouging, fish hooking which generally won't have anywhere near as serious of consequences.

Think I read something a few years back about a club footballer, might have been Mayo, who was blinded in one eye for life after a punch to the face.

Lads off work for weeks and having their meals through a straw with their jaws wired up, broken noses, permanent scarring, black eyes, missing teeth, cheekbones smashed, concussions but it's accepted as part of the game yet the outrage at lesser incidents.

And that's no defence of McCann either, what he did was trampish and has no place of a football pitch but perspective is lost on some people.

Best post on this thread.
