The Twitter Reaction To The Black Card Proposal Being Ratified.
By Paul Ring Updated

The controversial black card measure used in theory to stamp out cynical fouling in Gaelic football was passed by congress today by a margin of 70.82% to 29.18%. The law will come into affect from January 1st 2014. If a player is issued a black card then he must be replaced by another player. If a team recieves three black cards in a game then any subsequent cards will see a player leave the pitch with no replacement. The offences punishable by a black card are defined as:

To pull down or deliberately trip an opponent and deliberate body collisions, provocation, verbal abuse and threatening gestures and to remonstrate in aggressive manner with a match official.
(Irish Times)
