Replying To royaldunne:  "Get over yourself and get that chip off ur shoulder. I couldn't care if it's ulster Leinster Galway ballymagash wherever. It is WRONG. is that clear enough for you???? Or do I need to put it all in capitals?? As my post said enough is enough. Geography has NOTHING to do with it."
Take the chip of your own shoulder be more like it lol. Well that rant was certainly a waste of your time since I didn't refer to you specifically,it was more of a general observation about the selective outrage on these issues,but thanks for taking the time to clarify. I'm sure we can both agree that we'd like to see such incidents punished,and mostly for them to become a thing of the past.

Replying To befair:  "Word is that Ballyholland + Downpatrick have been banned from next year's county championship. Cue the appeal and the lifting of the ban....."
It was a league game so not sure throwing them out of championship will stick? Also a number of players have been given bans only problem with this is if they receive 6 months there not really missing any games as they'll be back in march. i would have dropped them down a division and given min 12 months bans to players who left pitch to get involved.

Replying To riverboys:  "Imagine is a large number of schoolchildren were between those players ands supporters when the fighting started, this story would make the news worldwide and we would be shamed as a nation for allowing this to happen, time to throw the book at every person involved in brawling. I'll give you 1 incident of how wrong our rules are, a player receives a straight red card for a punch or another serious incident, this is an automatic 4-8 week ban, manager walks up to the ref after the game, shakes his hand and wishes him well and says 'any chance that red card can be changed to 2 yellows' this way avoiding the ban, ref says either yes or no. That kind of behaviour by any person is wrong, you do the crime you do the time, how can anybody learn what is right and what is wrong, anybody that is involved in brawls or causing trouble whether players, management or supporters know they won't be severely punished and at least the train of though is lL'll give this ### a good thumping give him something to remember'. What to do in these issues should be fairly simple, Did this trouble take place on the pitch? If so the ref has to sort it out and afterwards the co board and maybe Croke Park Did the trouble happen off the pitch either in the stands or on the street outside of the grounds? If so the police and courts have to be involved and take action, co board can also go after the people involved but the 1st port of call is the Gardai and if up north then PSNI. Make them think before they act in future"
Jeez relax man. Worldwide news over a brawl in Kilcoo. don't make me laugh. Yes suspensions need to be throw at the players/clubs who brawl but lets not go over board
