I hate that 'hurling people' don't do that remark from Duignan

I got so many sly digs of the hurley that I lost count
it goes on in every game and lots of other stuff too

Yes but hurlers generally move on and donít get on like girls! Dirty blows should be dealt with by the ref and if seen by the camera a ban should follow. Job done
the eulogising of hurling folk is ridiculous
as if they are a different race or something

county hurlers and county management would sell their own mother to gain an advantage
The main difference between hurling and football is manliness.

I think Micks problem was that he believed the dig of the hurl was aimed at the balls and the untold damage that could do, whereas Mick admitted throwing out a few digs himself but never to a mans nether region.

Nothing wrong with that, take belts and give belts, no dirty strokes and away ya go... Hard for me being a ref now but I tend to not blow that often and let the game take its course...
Anything I post is not the view of the County Board!! Nobody died in the making of this post ;-)

What about giving cards to Kilkenny hurlers, MR? Is it acceptable?

cards mean nothing, refs always noted and then sent them off anyways, long before cards were introduced, thats how it happened. So showing cards is for the supporters and management, they know who's on a thin line and it helps the and the suporters, doesnt change the way you ref or control the game

Not if you want to referee an AI final.

Manliness is tantamount to strangling someone in modern hurling.

Waterford relegated in the play off game v Cork today which survived the weather . It took 20  minutes for us to score today and that  slow start cost us. We got back to within 2 points of Cork at one stage in 2nd half but the sending off of Maurice Shanahan within a minute of coming on for a petulant slap of the hurley (not for the first time) probably ended our chances. Cork finished strongly to win the game. It's been a disappointing campaign and Derek McGrath is getting criticised for his attitude to league. We have no home games in round robin in Munster championship as Walsh Park is not suitable for championship crowds. We have 2 games in Limerick where Waterford have a poor record so the morale is low at the moment.

bolloxes,,  ;D

According to some of the players we were well in the game till a mistake in our defence led to the Mayo goal being poked home.
Disappointed but we've a very young team now and they need to learn how to win dour games.

Some awful shooting let Waterford down again yesterday. The wide count must be well into the teens.

Sort out that and Waterford will have a good opportunity to be in the top 3 of the Munster section and hurling into the knockout stages.
Still think they could maybe throw up another forward all the same and still be compact at the back.
