GAA Black card offences are:

1 To deliberately pull down an opponent

2 To deliberately trip an opponent with hand, arm or foot

3 To deliberately body collide with an opponent after he has played the ball away or for the purpose of taking him out of the movement of play

4 To use abusive or provocative language or gestures to players

5 To remonstrate in an aggressive manner with a match official.

Well Holy God...when a man is in front of you and bearing down on goal, push him off-balance (he may fall to ground or maybe not) rather than pull him down and no black card!!!

Wtf are they on about?? Stonewall black card and exactly the kind of thing that needs to be removed from the game. It was an innocuous challenge but he was prevention the fermanagh man getting back to help his defence.

Agreed. Refs are there to implement the rules. If the rules are shit then change them but to have referees apply them as they see fit is the reason that we are in the mess that we are. We can't complain about inconsistency and then demand it if other situations.

If refs did apply the rules rigidly then players/supporters would know the craic and either the rule gets obeyed or changed/binned.

Watching the hurling here and there's a lot of cynical fouling going on. How come there's no black card?

Because there are no Pundits calling for rules changes. There are no Pundits saying anything bad about the game.

Because they are too manly to bother about the rules.
Occasionally th'oul ref will blow for a free to let them know he's still around

Now that another season is in the books, I thought I would see if opinions have changed on this.  I m still a supporter but understand the inconsistency and the frustration it brings.  There could have a few more on Sunday...
I used to be indecisive but now I'm not too sure.

The most cynical foul of the final was Philly McMahon's pull back of Cillian O'Connor for the point that put Mayo 1-14 to 1-13 up.

Yet under the rules it's not a black card card offence.

Had O'Connor not been pulled back it would have been a gilt-edged goal chance but the pull back allowed Cian O'Sullivan time to get across to cover.

I wonder when Mr Coldrick reflects on his application of the black card last night will he be able to explain how the Donegal goalkeeper escaped one?

he had no problem dishing one out to us early in the game when we were in the all ireland semi for a very borderline call. goalkeepers are immune to getting black cards it seems
