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

Two match ban more than enough.  Let's all laugh at the the ass-holes who were calling for a season long ban

What an unusual take. Hardly a Tyrone fan?

Think a two game ban is a disgrace, sends out the wrong message, should have been longer and used as a deterrent for the future from
Hospitals are not equipped to treat stupid

Not sure if what the disciplinary rules are. Maybe 2 games is all he could have got. If he is out injured then it’s all immaterial.

Would love to hear his account of it all. Clearly the intentional attempt to remove the opponent’s gum shield. He goes for it pretty quickly in the incident so its obviously something he has thought about and thinks is acceptable. What is going on the man’s mind??

Under the rules as they stand the most he could get for the finger in the mouth was one game. Two games for a stamp. Done for both. Concurrent punishments. There was never any chance of him getting any more.

Agreed. People shouting about life time bans are a joke. I ask anyone which is a more severe incident. Philly McMahon viciously poking the star in the eye or McCann trying to remove a player gun shield?

Also if you watch the video at normal speed it was hard man Ryan McHugh who pushed McCann which caused him to stand on the donegal player

2 games is about right. Should it be more to attempt to cut out shitty behaviour? Probably. They’d need to get it in the book first though. The rules & sanctions become lost in mass hysteria.

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

Neither are worse than the Ciaran Whelan's trademark of punching his opponent in the jaw from behind while he was going up for the throw in but, being a Dub, he never got a retrospective ban for such cowardly acts even tho they were caught on TV. Overhaul needs to start at HQ.

Yes!! Let’s bring up incidents from 10 years ago that have absolutely no relevance in this case...

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.

We're discussing retrospective punishment for otherwise red card incidents caught on camera. Seems perfectly relevant.
