Johnston saga bemuses Doyle

Kildare captain Johnny Doyle raises the NFL Div 2 Cup at Croke Park
Johnny Doyle is bemused by the fuss Seanie Johnston's transfer to Kildare has caused.
Speaking in The Examiner, the Lilywhite ace says he can't understand why such a big saga was made of the switch:
"The GAA is a big deal, everyone wants to talk about it. It'll be something else next week.
"Personally, I don't see the hustle and bustle that it brings. It's not the first player to move, for whatever reason. Obviously, there's rules there and if you abide by them, you're allowed to transfer and if you don't, you're not.
"I can't see any grey area there. But with the GAA there's a lot of grey areas seemingly, so that's where it's at.
"It didn't affect me. I had to go and train. It didn't affect any of the other lads. It was something going on outside of what we were to do. Seanie is being linked the whole time with Kildare but we just have to keep doing our business.
"At the end of the day, when you cross the white line it doesn't matter what you're doing - you have to produce the goods on the day. That's where we're at.
"Any man that comes in to our set-up and is involved no matter what part of the county he's from or where he's from, is seen as being treated the same as everyone else. That's the way it should be."
