Can I make a suggestion that we just park this whole Connolly/Spillane thing now, it's quite wearisome.
We can agree what DC did was silly.
We can agree that he shouldn't have done it.
We can agree that maybe the linesman didn't do his job at the time by getting the Carlow lads off him etc.
We can also agree that the officials didn't do their job at the time and took no action on DC.
We can also agree that Spillane went out of his way to get DC case highlighted.
We can somewhat agree that this has influenced the referee's report and has resulted in the suspension.
If I was a manager of this team, I would have done what Jim did too, I know a lot won't agree with that, but I think he was dead right.
All this debate is just ponderous and wrecking another thread. I'm getting very bored of this. As I imagine loads of others are.
Thank you for reading!
