Galway and Tipp's fourth round qualifier in Tullamore was a goalfest with eight in total being scored. Two of Galway's goals came early in the second half and a fifth could have followed had Brian Fox not dragged down James Kavanagh.
Referee Barry Cassidy adjudged it to be a yellow card offence rather than a black card one, even though it looks like the perfect example of the type of cynical foul which the rule was brought in to punish.
A selection of tweets regarding the decision.
Think the black card has been officially abandoned for the summer after that challenge by Brian Fox is deemed only yellow by Barry Cassidy!

I see the black card has been retired so.

How was that not a black card? #GAA ref bottled it. Terrible call.

Barry Cassidy has left his black card at home as I suspect most refs will now for rest of the summer
