Replying To kevin03:  "Not going to disagree. Cynical fouling needs stopped but he's not the only one to recieve it. Every good player gets it but doesn't resort to the constant screaming in officals face that Ryan does. I wouldn't have such an issue with it if he just did it when he is fouled but it doesn't matter who is fouled mchugh is always at the ref side shouting.


Like I said before, just watch any game and come back to me on how many times he beside an offical shouting. You will be surprised."
Yeah but every player has not had to step away from the game for a few months on account of persistent hits to the head. I doubt there is a player in the country that gets targeted more off the ball than McHugh.

You cant link "targetting off the ball" with concussion.

For a start no one phyically punches players on the head off the ball - camera's are everywhere. The targetting off the ball is holding and pulling. its a sneaky action, trying not to get caught.

Yes McHugh gets special attention but some does so many other players. McHugh is fast and takes players on. Head injuries are unfortunatly going to happen. Petey Harte got concussed against Mayo a few years ago and was out for a long time.

This tread was started to talk about Tyrone v Donegal and as per it has turned into a he done this and we don't do that. Fact, all top players are targeted by All teams. The only way to stop it is for umpires to grow a pair and call it out. Of all the officials they have the best view.

Would agree 100% with this and often wonder why they don't help the ref in an already impossible job.
