Maher's challenge is nowhere near as bad as people are making out. From Maher's perspective it was a nice hit, he got the ball first and got to follow through on Casey being somewhat protected from severe sanction by the fact he dispossessed him first. I can see why the ref let it go since he followed the flight of the ball. Maher knew what he was doing alright, but you'd swear he nearly murdered him the way some are going on. It's gas Limerick posters calling it assault etc., their players have been giving as good as anyone for the last few years and got away with worse too

If there are two referees one officiates one half of the pitch and the other the remaining half. They don't leave their half
The rules don't change you just have refereeing from close to where ever the ball is. The game will be the same.

You are talking about slowing down the game and adding some officials who can stop the match.

2 referees won't slow the game down. There will just be a ref closer to the ball. Always up with the action.


There are plenty of rules in AFL and the ball moves quickly and the pitch is wider. Two referees make sense.

With the speed of the ball and the level of athlete that modern players are how is a 40 something year old ref supposed to keep up? There are bound to be poor decisions
Two different opinions in a game like that doesn't work. You even see it in the international rules. It doesn't work there either.

One lad has a habit of pulling for one thing, the other lad pulling for another. Players always cry out for consistency. You wouldn't even get that every time the ball crossed the half way line if there were two refs.

That's a good point. Both referees would have to be very similar in what they deem a foul.

What is the problem with the reffing lately.
Is it that the referee is missing fouls because hes too far away or is it that the wrong calls are being made when the ref is close to the ball

It's extremely fast and very hard to be in the right position all the time plus they're under pressure to let the game flow. If every foul in hurling was pulled there wouldn't be 20 seconds continuous play. Then we'd see real complaining. Lads getting hurls clattered off their chest and arms when solo running. Blatant fouls but let go.

The only one that really pi$$es me off if blatant over carrying

Eoin McDevitt (of Second Captains) tweeted it that hurling needs a professional foul red card. That was scandalous in the first half in Croker yesterday.

Agreed.
Is it fair say that referees can't be on top of everything on the pitch and are under pressure to keep a game flowing.

Ie they can't keep everyone happy

Yes I'd say that's the case. One lad watching wants to let a game flow and let players bate the sh1te out of each other then goes mental when he sees a dodgy Handpass. Another the exact opposite. I think in general it's not as bad as we like to think but there's opinions from everywhere these days and it heightens the sense of the ref making a bollox of it. Stuff we didn't even see ourselves until some lad points it out on boards or Twitter.

A small bit of help from the other officials would go along way. Take away time keeping too.
