Kerry Cynical Play
« on: July 11, 2022, 11:31:33 AM »
When will pundits call out kerry persistent fouling and sledging? They are this long before PaddyTally  came in. Pat Spillane  likes to proclaim he calls as he sees motto over the years but when comes to Kerry all is brushed under the carpet.  Joe Brolly only to call out and Spillane never had a stroke when he spoke about it. Dublin have rightly been called out for their cynical play over the years why haven't Kerry?

Costello goal was only possible after David Moran had lost possession because Kerry couldn't foul and slow up the counter attack. How do we deal with this tactical fouling? Booking the fouler only slows up the game more giving more set-up time to the cynical team. Refs pulling the free back to exact place where foul took place another issue in allowing game flow.

genuinely thought that whilst kerry were the better side the tactical pulling and fouling they did was at another level.
it was extremely cynical, galway and the ref will need to be onto it for the final .
on another day spillane and o shea could have seen red
interesting that there were 2/3 scuffles off teh ball yet not a word said about these

Very simple. They have ex players all over the media, way more than any other county. That helps big time. You could probably put together a first XV of ex Kerry players working in the media.

Make a tactical foul a 14 yard free in front of goals, like free shots in Basketball. Other thing that could be borrowed from Basketball is that a team has a certain amount of time in possession before they must take a shot at goalposts. Some of the time eaten up by holding possession makes the game harder to watch. I understand that is rewarding the team that gets everyone back. But they will be in same boat. Something must be done about the long passages of going nowhere play.

Fuk it, go the whole hog. Penalty. That'll soon cut it out.

There’s an understandable trend in football (same in NFL btw) that the closer you get to the business end of the season, the more referees turn a blind eye to aggressive play. Basically red card offences become yellow card offences, black card offences tends to become yellow card offences, or ignored completely.

I don’t mind this approach myself. Gaelic football is at its heart a physical sport, and I’ve no interest in watching a freetaking contest to decide the destiny of Sam. The winners should have a bit of mettle and then some.

And because (us nordies especially) we only really start to analyse Kerry at the latter end of a championship, it does on occasion seem like they have a different set of rules. They don’t. Not Kerry per se. The last eight, last four and last two have an incrementally different set of rules.

We just see more of Kerry and Dublin at these stages than anyone else, playing more often by the “bigger boy” rules. And for some observers, it manifests in paranoia.

Not often kerry cynical fouling is called out. At it for years but glossed over by likes of Spillane.

I thinkPaddy Tally has cleaned up the Kerry tackling, much .ore disciplined and on a par with Tyrone. Rumours that Ricey might be helping there next year .
