RTÉ GAA analyst Pat Spillane wants the Tyrone and Dublin county boards to be punished for the half-time melee that marred their Allianz Football League clash on Saturday night.

Storm Jorge brought strong winds and driving rain to Omagh and it made for a disjointed affair, which the Red Hand men eventually won after a late Rory Brennan goal helped inflict a first competitive defeat on the Dubs since Dessie Farrell's arrival.

Just one player, Tyrone's Pádraig Hampsey, was black-carded when the teams emerged for the second-half, and the GAA cannot take any further action until they receive referee Cormac Reilly's report, which is due to arrive this week.

But Spillane says that once it appears, the CCCC need to get involved.

"You can blame the construction of the stadium where two teams have to funnel into a narrow tunnel," he said on Allianz League Sunday.

"You can blame the match officials for not insisting that the teams are staggered as they go in.

"At the end of the day, I don't know who gave the punches, I don't know who received the punches, I cannot say for certain. But punishment has to be meted out.

"It's the players that lost control. The county boards need to be punished severely for their players losing control.

"It's unacceptable."

This isn't the first time that there have been unpleasant scenes when Tyrone and Dublin have met at Healy Park.

Back in 2006, the so-called 'Battle of Omagh' saw referee Paddy Russell sending four players off after a brawl during the game.

Although nine players were charged back then, just one, Collie Holmes of Tyrone, served a suspension.

Ciarán Whelan played that day and, also speaking on Allianz League Sunday, the former Dublin midfielder said he would like to see teams entering the dressing rooms at different times.

"Things can be heated, and we saw in the All-Ireland club final (between Corofin and Kilcoo) that when teams are coming off, all it can take is the dunt of a shoulder and something can start.

"One of the downsides, particularly in Healy Park, is that the crowd can access that tunnel very, very easily. That would be the worry, that you have to protect the players going off, as well.

"A few years ago we saw defined rules came in that teams come out at separate times.

"Maybe that's something that the GAA have to look at at, that the home team is required to stay on the pitch until the away team has exited into the dressing room.

"Listen, we don't want to see that (unpleasant scenes)."
