Quote from: Rossfan on February 28, 2024, 08:41:35 AMWhat percentage of Gaaboarders know the playing rules fully?

never fails to amaze me how many supporters at games haven't a clue about the rules,and they're usually the loudest!  :o
Yep, the fellas who roar for frees for 'two turns', 'showing the ball' or query why a player got pinged for picking up a 'rolling ball'.

Nearly always a Galway buck that comes out with the 2 turns and showing the ball.

A mate of mine cam usually be heard roaring "Charging Ref".
What's the wording of the charging with the ball rule Milltown?
What do the resident SF stalwarts here think of Michelle O'Neill standing for the Charlie Windsor song?

Enforce the steps rule (and the 15 second mark rule for attackers while ye're at it ) to make the ball more available.
Coach tackling the ball from an early age.

Letting the man with the ball assault would be tacklers is a strike and should have the same penalty (red) as if the tackler assaulted the man with the ball.

The ball is not the personal possession of a player and anyone trying to keep it shouldn't be getting the privileges/abuses they're being wrongly allowed these days.
Did the "Ulster Gaels" really dream of having a Stadium to suit Euro 2028 Soccer Cup?
Has rrhf read the Good Friday Agreement?
To paraphrase the T. O. Playing Rules of Football
The tackle in Gaelic Football is a skill and is made on the ball.

In practice a good tackle is slapping the ball out of the hands if the player in possession.

TO also says goalkeeper may not be charged in the small parallelogram but may be challenged for possession
If the Brits don't come up with a load of their £s is it:-
No Euro soccer thingy in the IFA's territory
A no frills Stadium as far as the money available allows for Gaelic games only
No €50m from the 26 Cos taxpayers
It was a clean tackle on the ball. The then loose ball went over the goal line.

Plaudits to Cunnane who followed the ball in, a trait we haven't been noted for.
And to Ref for not going with the lazy " can't go near keeper", free out practice.
Loose ball after a tackle crosses line.
Also if goalie or defender carries ball over the goal line = goal.

Refs obviously need to stop giving frees against or cards to Tyrone players ::)
