Should the Banner beat Derry this weekend, they will move level on points with the Dubs.

As the two teams drew 1-8 each with they met, that would result in a toss of a coin to determine who will progress in the competition and whose season will come to an end.

The move has been met with much derision but O'Flynn wasn't for turning, insisting counties were given a number of chances to lodge an objection to how their competitions are run.

"We do a review and if issues arise and they can be addressed for the following year, that's taken on board," O'Flynn explained.

"A procedure was put out for further consultation, counties got their chance to respond to that, and on that particular point there was no amendment.

"It was ratified and Ard Comhairle subsequently reconsidered it on (Wednesday) night in the context of what's been going on.

"The decision from November 2014 stands. It has to stand because they are the predetermined rules of the competition.

"They are published on our website and they are available in booklet form."
