The harsh sanctions emerged as the motions for next month’s GAA Congress in Derry came to light. This is sure to cause outrage throughout the country, as the decision to punish three cumulative double yellow or black cards with a one-match ban was believed not to affect a player’s availability for the All-Ireland final.
Many figures in the GAA embraced the clause, believing that special dispensation would be given to players that picked up their third double yellow or black card in an All-Ireland semi-final. However, the new revelations are sure to ruffle a few feathers as Congress will not be asked to make an exception for any match.
This motion is expected to cause a large amount of controversy over the coming weeks.
