Our referee has quit because of the abuse apparently so how would the rule be implemented that every club has to have one. I was at an underage match in the past week and thought we had something going - A coach told a player to stop talking to the ref. Great, well done coach. Less than 30secs had gone before the coach started on the ref. It's in all ages groups, at all levels, in all counties.

Quote from: skat man on May 15, 2024, 09:35:53 AMwhy would anyone in Down want to become a referee when they seen how our best ref was treated and after all the talk of rigorous investigation its now been brushed under the carpet and why would the county board not hush it when the clubs and current referees stand by and let that happen. 

Not sure it was brushed under the carpet as I think the outcomes were shared with the referees during a meeting at the start of the year.

One of Paul Faloons requests to have all championship referee's mic'd up and recorded is to be introduced this year I believe.



Surely with such a robust investigation being carried out by croke park on behalf of down into how the county board handled the process then all clubs would be privy to the findings of that report? I dont think such a report even exists or any investigation was carried out.
officials are micd up anyway in championship but there isnt enough to go around on big match weekends , and as for recording everything im not sure how that happens without all new gear purchased.

the very fact no one knows exactly whats gone on 7 months later is a disgrace.

i agree completely wobbler, it has to be on coaches and club to enforce

The report findings were shared with our county board rep.

There are two different issues here; the report reflects a sad chapter in our county's history where there were no winners. The recommendations should be implemented and we move on.

Each club has a responsibility to develop referees and , more importantly, develop respect for referees. We can learn from the LGFA; at a game on Saturday one of our players got injured and the ref handled the situation very well, both teams gave and got respect.



what were the findings ?

Ask your county board rep, each club has one.

don't think the London match is being broadcast anywhere.

The U20 football final against Westmeath is live for free on Down TV at 2.15.

The hurlers in the McDonagh cup v Laois is live on clubber TV at 3 for anyone looking to watch those games

Good few changes to the team this week again. Good to see Laverty using the panel and giving lads a chance. Best way for these lads to develop. Hopefully a big win followed by a bonding session for the lads in London.
I see Tracey has joined the panel too and is sub goalkeeper. Has Anderson quit and Clarke still not second choice.

No Anderson was over with the squad aswell.

Great win for the u20s. Although it was B competition it was competitive championship and these lads and management showed a bit of quality to win it and there is definitely a few names which would be good enough for the senior grade in a couple of years.

Do those results today mean Offaly are eliminated from the group, and Down have topped the group? Because of the head to head rule? Will be a total dead rubber the last group game against them.

Yes. Chance to fully rotate the team or keep up the momemntum? Down recieve a by into the 1/4s now don't they?

What a result and display.. guts and intelligence throughout and didn't panic when they went behind early in the game. Congrats to team and management. Let's hope we get a good few of these lads through to seniors.

See Owen McCabe back playing for Carryduff? Hopefully over his injuries and gets a good run of games, maybe see him back in a Down panel before end of the Tailteann Cup.

Point-to-Point

No sign of Splash or any hurling chat lately?

Used to take a bit to do with it and we'd have a couple boys in the parish playing for different clubs- nice to keep up with the club and county scene.

Would love to see the hurling resurrected in our club.

Anyone any word on how the leagues are going or how Down have been faring in the Joe McDonagh?

Ambrose Rogers was very good on the GAA Social podcast this week.
Very open & honest chat about a lot of tough times.

Talked about his injury in 2010. Made me think it might be the one that got away!

Good win in Croke Park for the U20's. Although it is B grade, hopefully encourage a number of the players to buy into the county system. Good year for the senior hurlers, Division 3 and Joe Mcdonagh status retained - however lack of clubs providing hurling making it difficult to push to next level.
