Controversial Kildare Red Card Changes The Game As Kerry Look To Save Their Championship

Controversial Kildare Red Card Changes The Game As Kerry Look To Save Their Championship
By Maurice Brosnan

Kildare were dealt a hammer blow during their Super 8 game against Kerry when Neill Flynn was given a straight red card.

The incident came towards the end of the first half. At the time, Kildare were winning 1-6 to 1-12 and cruising. It was an eventful five-minute spell for Flynn who scored a goal and a point before being sent off.

 

Flynn initially fouled Killian Young, but made second contact with a swinging hand.

Speaking on Sky Sports, Senan Connell and Peter Canavan disagreed over the decision.

Connell: That is a forward's lazy tackle. He comes in with his fist and when you make contact it is going to be a red card.

Canavan: I don't know if it was a fist, it looked to me as an open hand. If you are going to be sent off for that, there should have been a lot of men sent off this year.
