All referring appointments at this stage should go before the CCC to ratify, well that's what happens in other counties but then again in Antrim who knows?

Unconscious bias a big thing in it too. Basically a conflict of interests and shouldn't happen. The person it is least fair on is the referee.

All appointments go through CCC here in Antrim also, that answer your post? There are no weaker teams, if one team loses a semifinal then they lost it cause they were the weaker team on the day, if a man goes down in the box and itís a penalty, itís becsuse itís a penalty... ffs lads get a grip and wind your suspicious minds in.

All referees that I know at this stage are gearing up to perform at the big games, to actually be completely biased in a match would jeopardise any chance they would have if getting games of any importance..

Basically youíre calling a ref a cheat. Some buck ejjits out there are actually doing it online here and have yet to be called out by their online clubmen on here. Shows you the level of paranoia this goes to
Anything I post is not the view of the County Board!! Nobody died in the making of this post ;-)

Lamh Dhearg vs cargin  - referee from St Galls and the winner probably plays st galls in the semi final.

The referee has a good reputation but for the avoidance of any doubt he shouldn't be reffing it. END OF. Problem Solved

I'm not sure if you are aware of the counties low intake of referee's each year?, people are unwilling to go forward with it as they will generally come up against people like yourself and others..

If a Cargin man referees a St Galls club league/Championship match, which happens often, do we lose the run of ourselves? Catch yourself on

Pick the best two men for the job regardless of their club (obviously not reffing their own club)
Let them do what they have done for years to get there and ref two of the biggest three games of the year in the county.

Think clubs should start concerning themselves more with the standard of football in the county and the standard of player than worrying about the attitude of a ref in a certain game.

Exactly, not fair on refs who have worked hard all year, i suppose in theory if a referees club is in a semi final, theres a good chance they will make the final so the ref cant get the final so to rule him out of getting a semi final is unfair, remember referees love the game too its not really fair for a referee who turns up on wet nights to referee 2 teams in a meaningless league game to then get overlooked for an important game because his club is involved in the other semi

Being a ref can be a thankless task.  I would actually be less concerned about what is being highlighted about championship games than I would be around important league games. Even if a ref were to show bias he still could not do enough to help a way inferior team win a game. It would be the closer games and in that his own club then would be playing one of two teams of similar ability.

My main gripe about referees would be the one or two that do not get themselves fit enough to mive beyond either 45 and of course the inability to record the score accurately to the point the wrong outcome can be recorded.

Great to be saying something positive about the CCC ! The u21 Football competition has been revamped into 5 group league format along a divisional basis then A&B knockout championship all county thereby each team gets at least 4 matches

I completely disagree... all theses players are grtting games at mimor reserve or senior. Why do we need to play 8 matches in october and November to win the competition. Overkill and unnessary

I applaud the initiative. The 17 -20 year olds are the age group where we traditionally lose a stack of players. More than other counties because of the pull of organised soccer league's every Saturday.

Minor is over for most clubs or will be in the next week or so for those still in the minor championship, senior reserve no one trains for and is practically over, and senior football is fizzling out for the vast majority of clubs in the next few weeks..going through the motions to get one or two league games wrapped up. So for the majority of the estimated 450 - 500 players involved this is a fresh challenge and with an A and B prize most clubs will be taking it seriously.
Or should be, if your club is serious about promoting football.
