    That's right. A game Galway lost 6 nil. Would have been handier with a keeper. I don't recall two yellows, but you could be right. It seemed like a ballistic over the top reaction from Buttimer, and that week's Soccer Republic gave credence to that idea. I remember the incident you refer to and thinking to myself "that sums it all up!". I also remember having to cross the main stand with a steward to go to the toilet, and one rovers fan going "ah jaysus, don't throw him out, it's bad enough they're losing"

    40 year ban for the three players, lifetime ban for the supporter, who already had a ban for assaulting a ref: https://www.rte.ie/sport/soccer/2018...er-ref-attack/

    Haven't heard anything about the criminal case though.

    Difficult to see how this Will be enforced - as shown by one of them already been banned ! Strong message, and rightly so but hope criminal charges follow to provide a real deterrent
