‘Cork footballers should have to wear nappies’ – reaction to Fintan Goold’s Croke Park toilet break
Published 05/08/2014 | 09:58
Cork footballer Fintan Goold has become a major talking point online after urinating on the pitch before All-Ireland quarter-final defeat to Mayo in Croke Park.
The Rebels 2014 campaign came to an end after a one-point defeat to James Horan’s outfit on Sunday, but a big talking point afterwards was Goold after caught on camera relieving himself before throw-in.
Rules published by the Competitions Control Committee state that players can be hit with a €300 fine for such an offence.
“Officials and players shall not urinate in any open public area on or around a pitch before or during a game,” it reads.
The GAA and the Cork County Board have not commented on the matter but on twitter there has been a wide range of views, from those calling for a suspension to those who see the lighter side of the incident.
