Rule Changes
« on: January 20, 2017, 12:29:25 PM »
With all the talk of how we can improve the game i.e. introducing the Mark, it got me thinking of what I would like to see change

1) Awarding of 2 points for a point scored outside 45m line. This would encourage the actual kicking of a point and would counter the blanket defence.
2) For underage up to u14 or maybe u16 I would like to see the player fouled take the free similar to the basketball concept.

Anyone else have any ideas or they happy with the current game?

Interesting ideas Butch - about the awarding of 2 points outside the 45 - To be fair I think this would lead to a LOT of wayward shooting in games. Only a proper talented player can consistently score points from play out there. The likes of Donie for example. I think otherwise you'd see a lot of people trying it and a lot more wides than we currently see. Very interesting idea though in my opinion. I think the game is pretty good as is but I would like to see rule changes in provincial tournaments. The current draw is very unfair in my opinion (Leinster / ulster / munster / connaught). It's a nice tradition but if we want to make it an even chance for everyone, a champions league format would be better in my opinion.

1. Woud encourage aimless kicking as most players incapable of doing this withany consistency (Even with more emphasis on it in training etc)

2. Good idea for younger players. Not sure if u14/u16 too far to bring it up

3 points for an outside of the boot. Be a great initiative.

Scores from fat lads should count for double. Coz it means more to them, just like in scoring in a nightclub.....might not always be pretty, but carries more weight.

Said it before that the time allocated at the end of the game should be taken out of the referees hands. Have an independent time keeper who has a set of guidelines for time allocated during the game for subs, injuries etc etc and this additional time is added on at the end and the amount of time is communicated to the ref.

Stop goalkeepers taking free kicks inside the opposition half. It's a complete time wasting excercise.

Would agree totally with those proposals redsetanta, the timekeeping one works very well in ladies football and there's no reason why it shouldn't be brought in to the men's game.

What's the thoughts on Duffys proposals? My tuppence worth

1) Round robin at quarter final series - against it. GAA ploy to increase revenue to counteract fall in attendances. Also increases number of games in an already condensed calender

2) Bring All Ireland final forward - agree.

3) Extra time instead of replays - agree

Did he mention anything about hurling championship?
