GAA Discussion / Ref cam
« on: August 11, 2013, 03:21:14 AM »
I was watching tg4 earlier and the ladies match between Meath and Laois was on. The ref had a camera strapped to his head which gave live feeds that you could see on tv.  Anyone know why?  And why is it that the ladies game can try things like this just to see if they will work but the men's game have to go through hoops to get anything done? The ladies have the clock counting down out of the refs control which most would agree is a good idea, yet on any Sunday through the year arguments will be had about how much extra time should have been played. If a big decision had to be made but the ref was unsighted then at least someone could stand up and defend him with evidence.

GAA Discussion / Pitch invasions to be made a criminal offence

"Justice minister David Forde is to make on-pitch celebrations a criminal offence in a new law and order bill." - Irish News 12/10/2010

This takes in both soccer and GAA on both sides of the border.  Though nothing is said about who will be prosecuted, what the punishment will be or when it could come into effect.

Im starting to get fed up with all this nonsense.  The GAA isn't what is used to be and its not the way it was when i was growing up.  Every year it something new being needed or changed and its making a balls of the whole thing.   

What do you all reckon?
