He suggested it because he’s a shitstirrer. And a barrister and therefore well able to defend himself if sued.
I’ve no idea what the ref did. And therefore I’m not going to idly speculate on a man’s character and morals when I have absolutely no evidence to do so.
I don’t know why he didn’t send him off at the time. By the letter of the law he should have.
Yes it was a shambles. But the GAA discplinary system by and large is a shambles. I think all inter county games should be filmed and a la Aussie Rules all matters reviewable. The ref should have little to no input. And suspended players should have one appeal and if that appeal fails the suspension can be added to.
I won’t hold my breath though.
