Talk­ing point...

ON the same week­end as Congress, the old black card ch­est­nut con­tin­ued to pro­vide am­mu­ni­tion to its many de­trac­tors. It’s the ut­ter in­con­sis­tency of it all that an­noys play­ers, man­agers and sup­port­ers. Louth lost William Woods af­ter he pulled down a Roscom­mon player when Louth were trail­ing by four points and some 100 me­tres from the Louth goal. Yet in the se­cond half both sides had play­ers booked for drag­ging down op­po­nents in far more ‘cyn­i­cal’ cir­cum­stances. Pun­ish­ing cyn­i­cal play is laud­able, but too of­ten com­mon sense goes out the win­dow.
