Probably will be   :-\, even though you'd get twice the crowd in North Antrim and better venues.

Ballymena is right in the middle

19 miles to ballymena from Cushendall, now unless Corrigan has moved recently then itís not the middle

Where in Belfast? Lamh Dhearg?  Creggan worth a shout maybe?

Sarsfields have a stand! Parking probably a big problem but the Westies could bus it! Creggan is a great shout in fairness, Iím sure though that the Johnnies will put an argument for a Belfast venue as the final will be in Ballycastle

Parking is a disaster in the Bear Pit. Could be a double header in Ballycastle.

As long as he applies the rules of the game properly it doesnít matter where they are from.

Cushendall St John's in Dunloy
Dunloy Loughgiel in Ballycastle/ Cushendall

Harsh reality is that outside of Corrigan there isnt another hurling pitch in Belfast capable of hosting it.

These are one of the three show piece games of the year and they deserve to be played in a venue which is suitable to that, regardless of where that may be geographically.

MR2 the only thing embarrassing here is the fact that an experienced ref took it on himself to apply a higher & lower standard to 2 teams playing in the same game game. Maybe you were at the game on sat?? If so then perhaps you would give your analysis of how the ref performed?? & maybe ease the "gurning".  Also heres a roll play for you. A cdall player gets deliberately struck twice on separate occassions. The ref takes no action. On the third occassion he gets struck again but this time he deliberately strikes back. What action should an experienced ref take at this point??

MR2 was the ref!!
The 2 senior semi finals should be a double header on the Sunday and the junior and intermediate finals a double header on the Saturday.

Anytime ive seen MR2 ref, or indeed had him as a ref hes always been fair and ive never seen him 'apply different rules to different teams' wasnt at the game at the weekend so cant comment on his performance but id safely say any calls were made due to what he seen and not to try and make a game of it.

Also, no offence Auld Stock but i think you knew fine rightly MR2 was the ref, i think you wrote your message intentionally to have a pop at him which i think is bad form on a forum

Mac 23 you will see in my first post that i said i had never heard anyone previously say he was a poor ref, which implies he is a good one. For the record i didnt know he was the ref on sat but now i do is it fair to ask him as you say did he genuinely not see 3 deliberate strikes & a hurl been thrown in the air in an attempt to block the ball???
If he says he didnt see those incidents then i have to take his word for it & let the matter rest. However if he didnt see these incidents it only completely backs up my previous comments that he should not ref any further cship games this year as unfortunately he simply isnt up to it

Auld stock, think you are out of line here.

I think Cushendall players and management are big enough and old enough now to take those incidents on the chin and walk away with a 25+ victory.

This is supposed to senior championship hurling and you are gurning over a few incidents in a dead rubber match, any of the lads hurt? Unable to take part in the rest of the championship?

Any referee or linesman that sees a deliberate stick with a hurl on an opponent and its going to result in a red card. Obviously in this case that didnt happen so I am going to take it that none of the incidents you are reffering too were in this category. So I am happy to believe that these were missed instead of some mythical bias that you are trying to allude too.

Any way - semi final time - time to move on.

Iíll humour you Auld Stock, the player sent off was gripping 2 visors off players at the side of the pitch near the supporters after Iíd blown for a foul against the same Sarsfield player.. Heíd have got a yellow for the first foul but lost the plot and he ended up doing what he did and that happens.
And a more experienced referee than me was doing the line where it happened, and he called it at the time also as spot on, but hey you know best

Youíd mentioned the player throwing the stick in the air, I shouted to all involve play on, its called advantage and had he touched the ball Iíd have naturally brought play back, (Cushendall won the ball, it was played forward resulting in a score) the Cushendall lads wanted him booked but you really need to learn the rules first on that one before mouthing off..

As for the other incident in the first half again funny enough near the supporters I spoke to the lines man as I didnít see it and asked him, maybe you didnít see me go over to him but I did ask.

There were other times that I noted players on both sides and booked a Cushendall man for hitting a player on the head with his stick, by your assessment he should have been sent off, or you didnt see it also as its been missed in your previous post.

The goal keeper threw his stick while trying to 'block' the scorer, I noted him and let him know what he did, again probably another incident that you missed, which begs the question, were you at the match?

This is Championship, whether you played or not in the past means nothing to me or any other ref, Sarsfieldís went about their business and the referee dealt with all the players from both teams in the correct manner..

If a team is a 1000 points up it makes no difference a ref wonít make it Ďeasierí for another team because of it, It has to be a foul for the ref to get involved. The team losing generally gives away the most fouls, that happened on Saturday. I was actually told by the Sarsfields players that I was Ďsucking upí to the Cushendall team, the mind boggles

All refereeís call it, as they see it and thatís life, if you think you can do better then take it up. You calling me a cheat while hiding behind a keyboard is very brave of you, oh wait itís not brave at all, trolling most definitely

If you want to comment on referees & make a much more effective contribution, why not sign up with the county as a refereeing advisor & do it properly / fairly?
