Adult Football League 1 (AFL1) 2019


#184

Maurs 2.9 Fins 2.8

Down to 14 after 25 mins.

Not a dirty game at all, a hardy derby and ref dished about 10-12 yellows out.


#185

Fins black was never a black. Fins v wasteful. Hit bar twice. Maurs dug in down to 14 and have a couple of nice players. Shocking weather for football. Overall good game


#186

Davis 0-13 ballymun 0-14, good game both teams missing a lot, ref was terrible, dont really complain about refs but he handed ballymun a lot.


#187

DC play?


#188

Handled Ballymun a lot?..had he Garda clearance?


#189

Brigids and Na Fianna drew.


#190

St Judes 2-11 TSS 0-6 Horrendous conditions for a match


#191

Philly played with mun today is he not on the Dublin panel at the moment?


#192

Had surgery recently I believe


#193

Correct. He broke his wrist recently


#194

To be honest, it should have been a red and the ref said as much to him. But he never gave the red for some reason, he said it was a trip but it was a wild swing with the boot.


#195

Lads we need to be careful here, at least 2 games referenced above are questioning the referee. AFL /AHL 1/2 refs are selected from a panel which I know from talking to 1 that they were in PP this weekend on in service/ fitness exams training on Saturday morning. The question I am putting out there is, are we getting frustrated with the referee or frustrated with the rules that the referee is enforcing.


#196

For me the issue is there is absolutely no consistency in the application of the rules. This applies to all codes and levels.


#197

He pulled away never continued with the boot. I was right behind it. Looked worse than it was. Bit more went on that wasn’t punished. Maurs deserved the win. Few crackin forwards the have


#198

A lad at the TD / BM game said, TD scored a point about 2 ft inside the post, referee waved it wide even when umpire said it went over extremely frustraiting game by all accounts instigated by the referee mainly.


#199

I find a lot of problems with referees is they won’t explain a decision or talk to a player. When questioned about a decision they make they just ignore the player and shunt them away


#200

We had Marysman reffing us this weekend and he, along with Keith Tighe, Seamus Farrely and a few others, are very good at that part of reffing. They will give an explanation and allow some leeway for an immediate reaction to a foul within reason. Not all decisions are going to be given as it’s impossible to be 100% right but having an open dialogue goes a long way to mitigating it


#201

Thats a great win for Cuala. Beating Vincents in that manner in any senior game is not easy.


#202

I find the biggest problem with referees is that they’re the only neutral person at every game and therefore can do nothing right in the eyes of biased supporters!! …


#203

Is Paul Hudson back playing with TD? Is Danny McCann involved with TD as a coach? Saw him on the line at u21 final and he was in paper with their minor team last week.
