It's all promising but it's a little early to judge yet. Like on current table Dublin are in trouble but ultimately they'll be as safe. The signs are good and let's hope that continues.

I know we are moving on from last weekend but where do the GAA see the wisdom in appointing a referee from a county who will be involved in a relegation battle with both ourselves and Tyrone? I'm sure Tyrone or Monaghan wouldn't be too impressed if Paddy Neilan is given the job of reffing their game next week? Not criticizing the ref, it's not his fault but it doesn't make sense to me.

Ya I would agree with that...we seem to get a lot of Ulster referees when playing Ulster opposition..

Gaa refs play for a draw if it's close.We know that.Ultan Harney, who was otherwise excellent gave the ref a chance for a draw match and the ref took it.

Forget the Harney incident thats over with...I just think the referee should be from a neutral province in all games unless it's two teams from the same province playing eachother..I think most people would agree with that.

What we need are good referees and there aren't enough of them around.It doesn't matter what province they come from.
