    Suspensions 2019

    Didn't know where to put this so started a new thread.

    Paul Hegarty from Harps and Ruaidhrí Higgins from Dundalk given 3 game touchline bans after the fracas at the end of the game recently,also Jamie Mcdonagh given another 3 game ban on top of what he's already served.
    Extremely harsh all round I think.......

    McDonagh isn't harsh at all. He just outright kicked Clarke. 4 game ban is completely justified.

    100% plus he was very slow to leave the field of play after being sent off

    Journalist Gavin McLaughlin gives a forthright view.

    It certainly seems inconsistent - not least on the basis of the suspensions given out to repeat offenders last season

    Gavin McLaughlin@DundalkSport

    Have to say, I'm absolutely baffled by this. I saw the incident in question and Higgins did absolutely nothing to warrant a ban. If I was Dundalk, I'd be looking to appeal that.

    Three-game touchline ban for Dundalk assistant coach Ruaidhri Higgins for his part in a minor schmozzle at the end of the Finn Harps game in Ballybofey recently. Same sanction for Paul Hegarty of Harps.

    Have to say i agree , it was an absolute kick with the ball yards away.
    The reaction of the crowd and the players was visceral as it was Clarkes first start back after best part of a year out injured and he went down clutching the knee.

    Colm Deasey banned for 4 games on top of the automatic 1 game ban he received for his sending off last week.

    It was a bad tackle but five games seems a bit mad. Maybe it's an accumulation thing with Harps?

    If sending off was for violent conduct it's three games additional. So really Deasy got one game extra.

    Is it just me or was it just a badly timed tackle that once he mistimed the original slide he couldn't stop?
    He hardly deliberately decided to get himself sent off

    Nobody knows apart from Colm Deasey,but the narrative that is being used is that he deliberately went out to hurt him and some even suggested he was told to do it by the management!
    Now a red card and a late mistimed tackle is nothing new for the player concerned but some are really going after him and I genuinely believe it's been totally over the top.

    Are people genuinely complaining about a 5 game ban? It was a disgraceful tackle, should be no complaints

    Serious foul play rather than violent conduct, surely. Which is theoretically a lesser offence. 5 games seems about right- it was a terrible tackle and the type of thing that is slowly being weeded out of the game

    Imagine the abuse had he broken Colls leg. It was a rotten tackle
