@Chewy I expressly said (many times) above, that I believe this punishment to be UNFAIR.....notably the training ban...
Seeing as you seem to be the barometer by which "Gaels" are measured. What in your mind is a fair ban for this transgression?
I would ask you to consider not what is a fair ban for DC (the best player in the country), but what would be a fair ban for any player (at any level) who places a hand on an official in this way....(in addition to the pointing a hollering, which in itself should be irradiated IMO)...i presume your answer is less than 3.
I agree Robbie, I don't think his summer is over, nor should it be. And the only thing that might bring it into question, is the training ban. It's a nonsense.
A man of Dermo's talent, if training with the lads at full tilt and playing in AvB's, would still be the best player on the field should he walk back into the semi final team. Not 100% sharp, a given, but still DC and the best there is in the game at present.
