At the outset here, it will be admitted that the length of suspension meted out to Gerry McEntee in the wake of his sending off in the 1988 All Ireland SFC Final Replay is unknown to me. However, what is known is that were far less means of appeal back then – if any at… Read More Fair play should not be at the expense of the system
