    It doesn't always have to work like that.

    I'm from Kilkenny and I agree he had a fine game. But I can think of several awful refereeing performances in games where Kilkenny won. One of the worst ever was by Cathal McAllister in the 2012 semi-final when Kilkenny won by 18 points!

    Sounds like sour grapes a lot of the time when one does feel they have to lambast the referee after their own team winning, albeit Mcallister certainly did let Paudie Maher away with murder that day.

    I wonder is this the first All-Ireland where no card was shown to either team?

    Walter Walsh should've got one for the frontal shoulder. Other than that, I don't recall a yellow card offence.

    Somebody (can't remember who) tossed there Hurley towards the end of the game, should have been one given out for that also.

    I've heard of people being accused of sour grapes for complaining about a ref after your team has lost. If this is also the case when your team has won, when it is ever ok to comment on a ref???

    Don't think it's sour grapes to criticise a referee after a win (dunno how it could be after a win). When Dublin easily beat Fermanagh last year, didn't they only get something ridiculous like 3 or 4 frees all game (compared to 5 times that for Fermanagh). And of course Fermanagh's first goal was scored by Quigley bundling Cluxton into the net.

    I think that was Richie Hogan. He was trying to stop the ball from a pass from a team mate. Is that a yellow card offense? (I don't know). Like it wasn't a case of the opposition being in possession and he was trying to stop them from striking ball.

    By the letter of the law it should be carded alright. But i get what you are saying it would have been harsh.
