RTE PUNDIT SLAMS DONEGAL STAR MARK MCHUGH FOR “SLEDGING LIKE A MANIAC”

first_imgRTE pundit Kevin McStay has been the latest high profile name in the GAA to have his say on the ‘sledging’ row that occurred during Donegal’s Ulster SFC win over Tyrone on Sunday.Kevin McStay has slammed the behaviour of Mark McHugh during Donegal’s win over Tyrone.Tyrone star Sean Cavanagh said both teams crossed the line and said there was little respect shown by both teams towards each other and said some of it was nasty, pre-calculated and malicious.Michael Murphy shrugged off the invasive treatment he received from Justin McMahon as part and parcel of the game. Other GAA commentators have had their say on the behaviour of both sets of players with the general consensus being that the level of ‘sledging’ has been taken to a new worrying level.However, former Mayo star Kevin McStay said the game left a bitter taste and in his mouth and said he was appalled to see Mark McHugh ‘sledging like a maniac.’In his column with the Irish Independent McStay wrote, “Donegal’s Mark McHugh was a very high profile and an obvious example of this behaviour in the second half and to see a young footballer, reared to know better than this, resort to sledging in an almost manic fashion was so disappointing.“He should have been shown an immediate black card. McStay said the dislike between both sides led to both sides engaging in the darker arts of the GAA.McStay added, “It boils down to this basic fact, despite the protestations and nonsense we heard from both camps afterwards: neither management, players nor supporters have much, if any, respect for each other and will resort to whatever is needed to win the day.“What a pity it has come to this. RTE PUNDIT SLAMS DONEGAL STAR MARK MCHUGH FOR “SLEDGING LIKE A MANIAC” was last modified: May 21st, 2015 by Mark ForkerShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:donegalGAAKevin McStaynewsSportTyroneUlster SFClast_img
