Davy Fitz Involved In On-Field Confrontation During League Semi-Final With Tipperary

Davy Fitz Involved In On-Field Confrontation During League Semi-Final With Tipperary
By Gavin Cooney

Davy Fitzgerald telling the people of Wexford to "chill the beans" always felt like that scene from The Simpsons of a crazed and agitated Homer shaking a serene Marge, telling her to "stop panicking....STOP PANICKING".

During the first-half of Wexford's league semi-final with Tipperary this afternoon, the discord between Davy's appeal and better nature simmered to the surface. Tipp had started much the better, and raced into an early lead.

Then, in the eighteenth minute, something stirred Davy Fitz to fury, and he ended up wandering onto the field to appeal to the referee. In true Davy fashion, he steadfastly refused to demur to the Tipperary players telling him to return to the sideline.

Here's Davy's righteous wander in frame-by-frame form.
