The Dublin set up are sweating over a potential retrospective ban on county coach Sherlock.

Dublin’s weekend draw with fellow table toppers Galway, was anything but a straight shooting football contest.

The game, in some areas being called a “thriller”, had its fair share of hot spots that spilled over both on the pitch and on the sidelines.

During the game, an altercation broke out near the sideline hoardings under Pearse Stadium’s main stand where Ciaran Kilkenny and Galway’s Barry McHugh came together.

Former Dublin legend and member of Jim Gavin’s back room team Jason Sherlock allegedly shouldered McHugh in the back during the tussle.

Sherlock now must wait to see if the CCCC will hand out a retrospective eight week ban for the incident, which the committee have taken a zero tolerance approach to in the past.

Last year, Wexford hurling boss Davy Fitzgerald was issued this suspension after an on field incident with Tipperary hurler Jason Forde.

Only last week, Down boss Eamonn Burns received a proposed suspension after pushing Cavan’s Óisín Kiernan during their Division 2 fixture in Breffni Park.

Should the CCCC propose a similar suspension on Sherlock, he would miss this weekend’s final round game against Monaghan and of course the League Final encounter with Galway.

Jason would be available for the Leinster Quarter Final against either Offaly or Wicklow on the weekend of either May 26th or 27th, with the suspension expiring on May 13th.
