Tyrone manager Mickey Harte has hit out at the Central Disciplinary Committee over the four week ban handed to Ryan McMenamin and has vowed to appeal the suspension.
Armagh duo Ciarán McKeever and Paul McGrane were both hit with the same length ban following incidents arising from last month’s Ulster final.
The suspension hits McMenamin particularly hard as he not only misses tomorrow’s fourth round clash with Monaghan but will also miss the All-Ireland quarter-final with Dublin should his side get past Monaghan.
"I wasn't particularly impressed by the hearing as there wasn't a warm reception for our point of view," Harte told the Irish Times.
“They didn't show much professionalism either when you see members of the committee walking out hot on our heels as soon as the hearing had ended. It seemed like they had made up their mind beforehand,” he added.
"We thought we had suffered enough for the incorrect sending off of Peter Canavan and Stephen O'Neill and now this. If any team deserved the rub of the green it is us so we will definitely be appealing."
The CDC have confirmed that they will hear McMenamin's appeal tonight, which could clear the way for him to line out for Tyrone tomorrow.
Armagh also signalled their intention to appeal the bans handed to their players.
