Diving in our game
« on: February 17, 2018, 09:04:30 PM »
It's one thing that I think everybody hates to see in soccer and it has been creeping into the GAA recently. The GAA should set an example of what happened today and that fullback should be given a 3/4 match ban. It's totally unacceptable and could well have cost Corofin a place in the final.
It's in the video below for anyone who didn't see it live.

Is there any rule against feigning injury at the moment? This needs to be stamped out before it gets worse and ends up like soccer where it's part and parcel of the game.

It can't get any worse as it happens in pretty much every game.

The feigning injury to get a guy sent off by Liam Healy of Moorefield was a very high profile example of this awful carry on. One would sincerely hope that someone would have a word or two with him. Delighted they lost the match. The rulebook has a clear rule about conduct that brings discredit to the association (with wide ranging powers to take action based on an investigation) - if that kind of behaviour doesn't fit the definition then I don't know what does.

Donegal at it Saturday night. Several  times players were checked for concussion with clearly nothing wrong with them.

Yet wasn't clear enough to get Tiernan McCann suspended?

I recall Lundy from Corofin a while back being responsible for one of the worst dives in recent years.
If you were any use you'd be playing.

Creeping in? Sure Sean Cavanagh's been doing it for twenty years and has just retired . . . a bit late with this thread!!

GAA Official Guide 2017, Part 2. Under "The Playing Rules of Gaelic Football"

Rule 5.4: To attempt to achieve an advantage by feigning a foul or injury.

PENALTY FOR THE ABOVE FOULS - (i) Caution offender; order off for second cautionable foul. (ii) If play has been stopped for a foul, a free kick from where play was stopped, except as provided under Exceptions of Rule 2.2.

http://www.gaa.ie/mm/Document/TheGAA/RulesandRegulations/13/79/82/GAAOfficialGuide2017_Part2_Neutral.pdf

The equivalent rule for hurling is almost word for word (except "free puck" instead of "free kick") under Rule 5.8 of "The Playing Rules of Hurling" in the same guide.
Fighting against ignorance on the internet since 1999. It's just taking longer than I hoped.

Its down to the ref to sort it out! If hes close enough to the play then hed know and dish out a card for feigning an injury!

 whats more annoying is hed four umpires and two linesmen plus a fourth official doing the time, how any of them didnt have a word is beyond me! They are all wired and chat continually throughout the game
Anything I post is not the view of the County Board!! Nobody died in the making of this post ;-)

Was it not the linesmans version of events that got Farragher sent off? I was at the game and thought I saw them conferring about it at the time.

In fairness, I think it's very difficult for the ref to adjudicate on 'feigning a foul or injury' in real-time.
However, if Farragher's red card is overturned, by default the Moorefield full-back is guilty of the above and should be dealt with accordingly.
If you were any use you'd be playing.
