I swore there was a girl in the junior game pulled for picking it off the ground.

You can't pick it off the ground if any part of your body, other than feet, are touching the ground.

Ah. That explains it!

Ah Tommy!! You not watched much ladies?

The ladies rules are in need of a huge overhaul. To be fair to them they are not slow to move with the times.

Primarily the charging rule. It doesnít work in an era where the players are conditioned athletes. Putting the responsibility on the ball carrier to make sure there is no contact is nonsensical.

Rules are simple, you canít tackle unless youíre tackling the ball, outside of a shoulder to shoulder physical contact is not allowed really (by rule book)

Shouldering not allowed in the rule book.
The way is is being refereed at all levels (I watch a lot of ladies football) is that the ball carrier tends to be penalised if they are travelling at pace and a defender who runs into their path collides with them and falls over. It is interpreted as charging , even when the ball carrier has both hands on the ball, and has clearly no interest in taking contact. Would have no issue when a player puts a hand out or leads with elbow. But thatís often not the case. Meath had two given against them early in the game on Sunday. Donegal had a ludicrous one given against them in the last minute of semi final when going for what would have been the winning goal. Meath back ran in to the path of the Donegal forward, caused a collision , fell over and got a free out.

Yep, that rule is so frustrating. The very odd time you will see an inter-county ref blowing for a free against the defender because she is adjudged to have ran across to get in front of the ball carrier, but this happens on nearly every one of those "charging" incidents yet 9 times out of 10 it's a free to the defender.

I was actually talking about mens football, its the only contact you're allowed!
