Refereeing Standards


#1

Watching the Roscommon county final. The referee is taking ineptitude and cluelessness to previously unseen levels. I have literally no idea what he is doing. And no advantage at all. Shocking stuff.


#2

Yeah but is he “letting the game flow”? :dizzy_face:


#3

He’s not. He has no idea how to ref the game. Never mind let it flow!


#4

Eoin Kelly gets on top of Ballygunner full back. Throws a few digs. Pulls his helmet off. Draws blood. Result? Two yellow cards.

Sweet Jesus!!!


#5

How that lad is allowed to referee let alone referee a county final. Completely lost control of game. Doesn’t say much for referees in Roscommon. A Padraig Peases player dragged down by 2 players and get free given against him was the best.


#6

There was some very poor and overly fussy refereeing in today’s inter semi final too, for both sides!


#7

Michael Murphy gets away with a lot cynical stuff. Tackles Kilcoo player with closed fist. Lands about 3 punches and not even spoken too. Glenswilly got away with a lot dangerous tackles due to frustration losing. The failure of referee to implement yellow/black just because team is losing is annoying. A card was finally produced when Kilcco player stretchered off in injury time from a dangerous elbow and Glenswilly player red carded.

Red yesterday in SHC Final did not send off a player for a clear strike of the hurl. He did in a championship game last year despite it being a less serious incident.

Inconsistency is the bane of the GAA fan.
