Antrim / Re: Antrim Football Thread

He must believe that Cargin conducted themselves disgracefully also if U15 players assaulting coaches is the threshold for such.
The coaches of both teams acted admirably in very difficult circumstances. Everyone else....well...
Pretty sure you were right.
Quote from: Norm-Peterson on May 12, 2024, 09:25:54 PMI wonder did they ever manage to drag McBrearty off the stand, wittering on for a long time.
Cringey stuff from Niblock too chuckling every time McGuinness did a fist pump.

It wouldn't surprise me if Tyrone beat Donegal in 2 weeks. No great shakes.

Also that is a very posh voice of Thomas Kane for a South Derry person.
Thomas Kane is from Belfast? Could be the reason.
Would have been interesting to see how Twitterati reacted if TK had have scored that mark at the end of normal time.
I think the black card is under utilised in regards to that.
A missed free isn't. And that's the point, you shouldn't be looking at the outcome.
The penalty for committing a foul near your own goal is that the opposition is presented with a scoring opportunity (a free). They are not given a score, just the opportunity to get one. The onus is entirely on them to capitalise on that. If they miss it, tough luck.
The advantage rule should allow them to make use of a better opportunity if it presents itself but again, the onus should be entirely on them to capitalise on it and if they miss it, tough luck.

For me, the main reason for the advantage rule is so that the awarding of a free kick is not a punishment to the fouled team.

And of course it's my opinion.
I'm not sure I'm in agreement with how the 5 seconds thing actually works at the minute.
I think it should be the period of time the ref uses to see if an advantage presents itself. If it does then it's play on. Regardless of whether it is squandered or not.

Using your example there, I wouldn't be looking to see if a team are better off after 5 seconds but indeed if they were better off at any time during the 5 seconds.
The logic is that you don't get 2 attempts at a shot for a foul. You get 1.

That can be a free or let the play continue if the opportunity is deemed by the ref to be better than the original free.

A free is not a guaranteed score. If you don't take advantage of it then tough. The same should apply to shots that are deemed to be "better than the free".

There is an advantage if he misses in the 5 seconds. He just didn't take it.

That's a good point.
It also reinforces my belief that the rule is wrong in that if you get an opportunity to shoot from a more advantageous position then you should not get a free regardless of the outcome.
It should be one or the other.

Baffling logic.
It was a red card offence all day and he deserves to miss the next game at least for it.
Unless you were there.. I'm going by TV footage
The officials who consulted and decided that he deserved a red were there.
The Roscommon players who reacted like he was out of order were there.
I imagine the vast majority of people who viewed the footage you did would be satisfied that there was a strike or an attempted strike.
But, you are from his club so you see it differently.
Yes, they should just suspend him for a club league game in the middle of June for that.

You may want to engage in semantics, but my point was that massive demographic change is not good for the host society in the long run.
You're not so bad at it yourself, Mr Plantation.
It's a free kick from the hands.
You don't seem happy to stand corrected, if I'm honest.
