Black card potent weapon in fight against cynicism
THE black card... remember it? In my innocence, I was trying to forget it myself once the 71pc of GAA Congress delegates in Derry last March voted to implement it from January 2014.
But then came the Sean Cavanagh rugby-style tackle on Conor McManus and all hell broke loose in the stadium, in the media and with rank and file football supporters.
Naturally, Monaghan supporters – and it seems many neutrals – were demanding further sanction for such offences other than a free and yellow card.
