Slightly off topic, but refs and respect, well lack of it... Was at girls game last night , club game. The abuse from adults spectating towards the ref and opposition players (we're taking 12 / 13 / 14 year old girls) was off the charts. Both teams management behaviour towards the ref was almost as bad. It was embarrassing to listen to

Canít do anything to spectators only report the abuse and the CB needs to challenge the club on their Ďsupportersí and ban home games. As for players and managers if he doesnít deal with them there and then then heís a fool. Report and send them off, otherwise itís a green light for the next refs

If we were nearly as good as Mayo on the field... But in all seriousness, genuinely shocked at what I heard

Players who take advantage of media attention to build their own profile are also building a rod for their own backs when things don't go well on the pitch.

Dublin in the Lyons and Caffrey years embraced the hype, but got pilliored for it every year when Sam wasn't won. Although at least they were all on the hype-train together and the abuse was shared around!

In recent years, you could probably compare AOS to Bernard Brogan in terms of media attention, but Bernard was lucky enough to have success follow him so didnt have much personal abuse to deal with.

Something should have been done about this years ago. Look at threads here set up about Diarmuid Connolly years ago. Then you had garbage written by that clown in mayo news calling Dublin players thugs. Social media pages and 42 comment sections are worse for abuse. Opposition supporters mingle at games but social media is just poison.
