The GAA, in a statement to the Sunday Independent last night, said that once the referendum on same-sex civil marriage had been called then the issue, "became political."

"It's a black and white issue. The association is apolitical. Any member is allowed to have their own political views or opinions outside but Croke Park is not the place to make political gestures. We have been very consistent on this issue," said head of media relations Alan Milton.

The GAA would never get away with this in this country.

I'm not so sure about that. If it was a longstanding policy, and was enforced fairly in the past, I don't have a problem with it.

Were these sportsmen penalized?



There are policies and rules in place against such display.

Hands up! Don't shoot!

Those were players. They weren't responsible for making unbiased calls. The referee was.
