Yes, it is. The GAA does lots wrong and sometimes when it does things right it gets the communication wrong. It's unfortunate and adds to the feeling of alienation most regular GAA players/officials/supporters have.

Okay, the advanced mark is 15 secs and  your everyday plain mark is still 5 seconds.
Both still don't constitute a break in play so that a substitution can be made,  do they?

Nope 15 seconds for all marks now.

If the player opts to play on, its not a break in play and substitutions aren't allowed.
If the player stops and takes the kick, it is a break in play and substitutions are allowed.

2: For all marks (the advance mark and the kickout mark) the following provisions apply; the player will now be allowed 15 seconds to take the mark (it was 5 seconds previously). The opposing players must retreat 13m (it was 10m previously).

Thanks twohands, well explained.
Somehow the reports on the decision to change from 5 seconds to 15 seconds completely passed me by.

When it comes to timekeeping, in that not enough talked about recent Monaghan Dublin encounter, ref Brannigan rightly stopped his clock in added time  for disciplinary issues  and the one injury. Twice  he restarts play and presumably his clock also starts ticking again. On those 2 restart occcasions,  Beggan took a kickout and secondly took a 50m free. From the time the ref indicates the restart, did Beggan still have his  20 or 30 seconds alloted to take each kick?
