The ref done a disservice to all refs by not taking it to the Garda, a likely reoccurrence if the same to happen somewhere else within 2yrs. As for the Gaa rule book it's a sham, too worried about concerts and money instead of updating the rule book which managers, players, County board take advantage off, used to be there was only one Frank Murphy dodging around the rules, now everybody at it for self gain. Some much for Gaa values of promoting Gaelic games.

How do you know he hasn't went to the Guards? And if he hasn't then that's his own personal prerogative, not everyone wants that hassle.

Surely first and foremost its the GAA authorities who are doing the disservice to the refs by not hanging this guy out to dry. He shouldn't be allowed anywhere near a pitch again, either inside or outside the wire. Plus he shouldn't have the benefit of any appeals process at all, anyone laying a hand on a ref, or verbally abusing one, shouldn't have the benefit of the appeals process, take what you're given.

Will be appealed and reduced further up the chain. If it is then its really a farce

How do you appeal that? Surely the club will stay out of it. Does anyone know how the club dealt with the incident originally?

Clubs appeal everything!! We've a poster on here, same thing happened to him years ago, it was appealed, now in fairness to the guy he probably deserved it  ;D

Aye but you fellow Antrim refs wouldn't back him up....  ;)

And yes, he's a big gub, but he/she/they (incase Enoch has got out of the Joy) without sin cast the first stone.  ;D

Hey!!!

Sure I told you I'd make you a half time cuppa next time you're at our place.

Gardaí have confirmed that they are investigating an alleged assault on a referee, which happened after Sunday morning’s junior football championship group A fixture at Whiterock Hill, home of St Joseph’s in a match between them and Our Lady’s Island.

Hope whoever it is is banned from attending games for life.

But yet we still give the ref's online abuse and nothing done, with all the hype of this going on I'm still witnessing abuse at grounds.

Need to change (remove) the appeal process. Anyone who lays a hand on a ref, or verbally abuses a ref, should not be able to appeal the sanctions handed down, they should not have the mechanism to reduce their punishment. They should be made to stand outside the ground for each and every day of their suspension.

Was chatting to an official the other day and he said the appeal process at county and provincial level is gone and it goes straight to Croke to be dealt with

Seriously? Wasn't aware of that change. Is that for club players/ matches or inter-county?

But sure CP can reduce their sentence just as easily then

Yes they can but its not going to be influenced, it will be objective in that they have no skin in the game and with the current media hype with it I can see too many things being reduced

In Kerry, where disciplinary problems have led to the abandonment of U11 hurling and U15 football games in recent weeks, the county’s referees committee has plans to meet with all clubs in the county to improve tolerance towards referees

If you can't control yourself at an U11 hurling match what is wrong with you? Individual suspensions aren't going to change this unfortunately.

Madness. I know we can all get carried away at matches if you’re watching or coaching, especially if a family member is playing, but at the end of the day at underage the number one aim is for players to develop their skills in an enjoyable way in the hope that as many as possible at a high of standard as possible eventually come through to your senior team. What is enjoyable about that shit for children.

The vast majority of abuse is from the line or behind the wire, players will react and some can be gobshites but at least you can card them
