I’ve already said earlier I was pissed off when it happened to Fenton however I never once called Murphy a thug, I never once described the Donegal team as a shower of young scum, I wasn’t calling for Murphy to spend a few months in mountjoy either.
I agree that there is a duty of care to the players and that duty of care extends to calling out the disgusting stuff being said about Shanahan.
There has been plenty of occasions where we’ve had 2 players sent to the stands in a game, are we saying we went out, with intent, to break bones on them occasions?
If you can see intent in what Shanahan done fair enough, but I can’t. In real motion it happened very fast and it was a lovely sidestep by Regan. It looks to me as Shanahan was coming in, he was attempting a shoulder and when Regan sidestepped, Shanahan tried to change his angle too and got it wrong.
That’s how I see it anyway
