Seen this the other day, and spoke with others about it also....

Football, keeper kicks the ball out, defender/midfielder catches the ball, the ref as usual blows for the mark and is claimed by catcher, the player then passes the ball back to the keeper.. play on or foul?

My view:

If mark is claimed it's a new play, so next kick is the first phase of a play (for want of a better phrase), not a continuation of the kickout phase, so no foul. Similarly, if keeper kicks the ball out to his 7, but the opposition 12 clearly fouled him before the ball reaches him and ref blows for a free. Then the free kick can be passed back to the keeper.

Whereas if the mark wasn't claimed and midfielder plays on, then it's the same phase of play, so if he then passes to the keeper it would be a foul.

Thats my view as well.

The group stages are not really the problem. The problem is starting a competition in early August with 2 games in 4 days. Then large gaps between games with the quarter finals not even starting until end of October. Tickets are limited so we can't even go to matches yet and very few games are streamed. All pretty poor really. The coverage of games is also poor. Great games that you'd barely know are on.

If people want to change the system then you need to get your clubs to submit a motion.

Weíre the groups not just introduced to give clubs more games due to Covid? Then kept this year so they could play the league without county players and give teams a chance to bed county players back in before knock out? Look at intermediate, massive groups with dead rubbers the last few rounds, call me old fashioned but having dead rubbers isnít championship football for me. For me 2 teams going all out to get through to the next round, not 1 already out just fielding a team and the other going flat out.

All fair points, and all from a spectators perspective. Players love playing games, thats the whole point. You canít get enough football. Wouldnít be complaining as a player

I got the letter the Cushendall club allegedly sent,  ifs itís genuine then Cushendall need to wise up, its hilariously embarrassing. Whoever agreed to write and then agreed to send on behalf of that club need hunted from around the club. A list of nonsense excuses. It canít be real? The response is also funny as it doesnít take the initial complaints to seriously. Iím sure there are both fake.

Incredible for ladies, perhaps. But never in the month on Sundays would it happen in menís football. The standard in the gap is significant

But youíve got to get bout of the bottom to progress and grow at the next level, otherwise why bother if the gap is too significant ?

Agree entirely 👍

Of course they can, thats correct, however my point well made, played in games and observed games where the ref has contributed to the increasing level of aggression by simply not doing what his basic responsibilities are. If you donít understand there is little point in debating. And as MR2 said the ref didnít do it, he is correct and players have responsibilities as well in this.

Did the referee at any point injure the player? So I'm not confused with what you're saying

Heís saying when a referee doesnít control a match which is his job, inevitably as we have seen over the years and donít have to look any further than the Mayo/Dublin game, the aggression levels increase in response to every bad decesion the refs makes.

So your brilliant idea is that if you win the junior or international championship you donít get promoted. Why didnít Antrim stay in the Joe McDonagh Cup? 🤡

How do Casements go from hammering St Brigids by 14 to getting bt by a v poor Ahoghill team by 1pt. Itís obviously no fluke as they did it last season to. Wonít help their development. Dermots injury a serious blow. Iíll say nothing about the ref, seen him to often 🤡

Loughrey interview. Still living in Cork.

Have to say that i am baffled at that, he's played in Cork for 9 years, meanwhile St Brigids have been in a number of U18 and u21 finals and they feel they need prioritise him over their home based youth. I just don't get it. They have regressed from last season.

I don't think senior is that straight forward. We took them to extra time in the final last September. A kick of the ball in normal time. Their panel proved  stronger in extra time and we have no complaints. We are there abouts. LD come the quarter final will give anyone a game. They and Cargin have had very tight matches and replays the past 3 seasons. Can't see that changing as LD have proven championship performers. And I also see Portglenone pushing on further this season, they gave St Brigids a tanking last week by 14pts, no one seen that coming. They should be pushing.  Cargin favs surely but its not a one horse race.

What is going on in moneyglass they couldn't muster one point in the game with Cargin. I don't think I can recall in senior championship at club anyone not scoring. Like seriously.

St Galls never really in the game last night, seems the Whitehill man in the middle was trying his best to keep them in it with a soft penalty and not allowing Ricky to touch Niblock in any manner

Would agree with that, he refs like it is literally basket ball. Niblock won every ball, Ricky had of touched him with a duster the ref would have blown a free. A good start for us but we need to improve going forward. Last nights game will bring us on, along with with the other teams.
