No to first one and yes to second question.

I actually think that the ref was right in the first time as well.  The rule about a 'controlling' bounce was implemented a few seasons ago if I recall.  The rule is pretty clear and unambiguous

4.6 To bounce the ball more than once
consecutively after catching it.

You have to read the entire rule book

1.5 When the ball has not been caught, it may be
bounced more than once in succession.


and in the "important terms and  definitions" section:
1. BOUNCE For a player who has caught
the ball to play the ball against
the ground with his hand(s)
and to catch it on

Fair enough,  I thought I read somewhere that this rule had been abolished

not sure - I thought they had actually included a reference to basketball - but that may have been the clarification :

The rule has been there for many years but the 2010 changes was clarifying this to give a clearer definition.

The basketball dribble is a great subvention of the "only one solo" training matches.

Is that not self contradictory? If the definition of a bounce includes catching it, how can a ball be bounced more than once in succession?

And since a contradiction logically implies everything, nothing is forbidden in football.

24-week suspension for Donegal dual player after social media comment

Social media

BY CHRIS MCNULTY

IN what is believed to be the first case of its kind in Donegal GAA, a club player has been given a proposed 24-week suspension because of comments posted on social media.

Seán Mac Cumhaills’ player David White, who plays football and hurling for the Twin Towns club, has been singled out over a comment following the Donegal SFC quarter-final between Ardara and Naomh Conaill.

In response to a message from the official Donegal GAA account which confirmed that the drawn quarter-final would be replayed that Wednesday night, White is understood to have posted a tweet that was critical of the decision not to play extra-time in the fixture.

The dual star is understood to have posted a similar message on Facebook and County Board chiefs have reacted by handing down the ban. It is likely that the sanction, believed by the relevant parties to be ‘extremely excessive’ will be appealed.

The decision to serve notice of a lengthy ban for social media comments will flash the alarm sirens around the county with club players’ social media activity under scrutiny.

GAA members had been warned by the Donegal County Board in August of this year that they could face disciplinary action over comments made on social media websites.

The secretary of the Donegal Co Board, Aodh Mairtín Ó Fearraigh, also issued an email to club secretaries at that time urging them to make their members aware of the GAA’s social media policies.

That letter outlined that all GAA members are encouraged to take part in social media but the Association expects each individual to follow the guidelines on using social media.

“I would ask all clubs to remind their members and players of the implications of referring to the GAA in social media when they do.

“Each member is to adhere to the GAA’s Official Guide and Club Constitution, as well as other applicable documents. All GAA members are subject to the GAA Code of Behaviour when online, even when they are not acting on behalf of the Association.”

A couple of rule related questions.
1. A forward is behind the goal line, in the net essentially. A long ball is kicked in (from play) and he moves out in front of the goalie, flicking the ball to the net. Goal or no goal?
2. Same situation but the goalie punches the attacker while he is still behind the goal line. What does the ref give (besides a red card)?

1) Technically, if a player leaves the field of play he cannot reenter without permission from the referee. Free out.
2) Assuming the referee stops play to deal with the incident, play restarts with a free to the team in possession from which they cannot score

If a player remonstrates with a linesman over a lineball decision, does he get a yellow card?

Yes.

But if he is from Donegal and does it on Twitter he gets a 24 weeks ban.
