Are you for real.. you go on about Roy Keane and all that. What about when he took out Alfie Inge Halland.. and when on the subjects of professionals remember Cantona going into the stand and Kung Fu kicking a fan and all he got was 9 months so how can you say Galvins 6 months for slapping a refs book is fair compared to that..
Galvin plays with passion and heart and at least he had the balls and guts to apologise. Been from Galvins side of the world I can tell you he feels desperate for what he has done and how he has left his team and his club and county down, and yes if his ban gets reduced to 3 months he will deserve to be there playing for 7mins or 70mins... He was fantastic in 2006 and 2007 and would deserve to be there 2008 if we are there
What county you from Chomper..
I never said Roy Keane was an angel. I was stating the fact that Roy Keane would never resort to a humiliating public apology to escape punishment for his misdemeanours. I mean Roy Keane was booked in a Champions League semi-final which meant he would miss the final. Did he go on telly to make a grovelling public apology, hoping that people would feel sorry for him. Did he hell. What he did was go on to produce one of the most selfless, greatest displays witnessed on a football pitch to get his team mates into a final. Unlike Mr. Galvin who was obviously only thinking about himself when he threw his little tantrum. So don't even try to compare Mr. Galvin to a sporting icon like Roy Keane. Keane is a man amongst men, while Galvin carries himself like a spoilt little child.
No doubt I'm gonna be banned for my opinions really soon so I guess it's time to sign off. Au Revoir my friends. Ciarrai abu.
Chomper as Flemishgael said all opinions are welcome and it would not be a proper discussion board if we all agreed with eachother, and I see your point about Roy Keane but Roy Keane is a professional and the GAA is amateur, Roy Keane will get paid no matter what, Galvin wont get paid nomatter what
Im not offended by what you sasy about Galvin but just bear in mind he does realise he has done wrong and we all agree that he should not have done what he has done but can you agree that the DRA took a week to come to this decision which is a total farce
