Inter County GAA lost its 'elite' status in October 2020 due to covid breaches. With this nonsense, it could be another delayed start

All joking aside, the GAA needs to step in and do more than these ridiculous manager bans. I would deduct both teams 4 league points for starters. Why? Well the GAA will now come under serious scrutiny and potentially our start date could be pushed back unless we are seen to deal with this. That would effect all clubs and all kids and it is not acceptable.

Why are Monaghan getting rewarded with Banty's suspension?

No doubt it could be a big boost to Monaghan having Banty removed ! Just as long as he continues to pay the wages though! In all seriousness gaa president said another breach would have serious consequences and now he is saying same thing again🙈 . Typical gaa all words no action. And clubs getting the raw deal again. Some counties will have to run off comps in winter when we could be in another bloody lockdown !

First up I think it's a joke that the GAA and outdoor sports in general are not allowed to train and play away. Adults and kids alike.

BUT, the vast majority are obeying the rules and it's some dose to have these lads across the board make a bollix of it for everyone else. Players broke the rules too and anyone caught could be banned as members of the association.
Not just Monaghan but if Fenton and Cooper got a few weeks, even six it would send a bigger message. How can the players be let away and the county board be excused too.

The GAA need to go harder on this and call any team and any person breaking the rules the selfish dickheads that they are. Again I think they should be allowed but the fact is they are not, so a manager getting a ban is pointless.

them mysterons are always killing me but im grand after a few days.sickenin aul dose all the same.

So the rules are a joke but just follow them blindly?

Far bigger message would be for the GAA to call the government and nphet out for the selfish dickheads they are and say play away.

No Banty on sidelines roaring his head off could be a bonus for Monaghan.

Any sanctions for Clubs letting their pitches be used for unauthorised uninsured activities?

If clubs were told that they would get a 6 month ban on return of activities if they allowed inter county training take place on there facilities it would have gone along way to stop this type of activity.

The president reckons any more breaches will be devastating !  Few counties be crapping themselves over the next week.
Itís a serious bonus for Monaghan though. Surely if they want to punish Monaghan they ban the real management and let Banty take the reins!

https://m.independent.ie/sport/gaelic-games/gaa-poised-to-declare-bans-on-dublin-and-monaghan-managers-null-and-void-ahead-of-further-investigation-40291101.html

So Banty held the training session on his own club grounds, it just goes to show that you aren't safe anywhere!

The penalties aren't exactly a deterrent for other counties though, loss of home venue is of no relevance in the current climate. Farrell and Banty might now miss the opening championship fixture but it depends what the managerial suspension covers in terms of any potential impact this might have. If it is a complete stadium & training ban then it might have some effect but otherwise if it is just a touchline ban on matchdays then it will have little or no impact given the amount of backroom staff involved now at county level.

You should put that in the "Club sanctions for unauthorised uninsured Activities" Thread
