Episode 1712: Dubs/Tyrone Skirmish Breaks Out In The Tunnel, Hurling Says Bye Bye To Black Card
Hurling folk are never shy of offering an opinion when it looks like people want to meddle with their beautiful game, and they were out in force over the last few weeks to ensure that the black card would not be introduced in hurling.
This is brilliant from @EndaEndamac95. The black card may have been defeated in congress today, but thank god we are having the debate. There is a lot of sense talked here on discipline and cynicism (with bonus helpings of Liam Griffin).https://t.co/oG1X3YPhzW

That motion was duly blasted out of the water at Congress on Saturday, and there was also a full set of league fixtures this Sunday for Malachy Clerkin of the Irish Times and former Waterford manager Derek McGrath to pore over.
Dublin and Tyrone played a football match in a hurricane, but it was a fight in a tunnel that garnered most of the attention on Saturday evening. Plus there’s 34-man teams in hurling, Leinster’s 6 foot 6 inch secret, Simon’s starting 15 for our game vs France (in October), the Bank of England, and the Master of Wind.
