Deserved Red Card

(Oldest Posts First)

Deserved red card for the Croke's No. 2 but what was the Corofin player doing holding his face. Boot did not go near his face.

So the bloody nose and mouth happened miraculously.

Boot caught his face and is clear 1 camera angle

Arra stop. You're only making a show of yourself. If you're going to start another Thread of Righteous Indignation where you afford the more precious amongst us an opportunity to clutch their pearls in horror, at least pick an incident worthy of it.

Diego, book an appointment at Specsavers as soon as you can. The Crokes full back was a lucky man not to get a red card also.

He had blood pouring out of his mouth after getting up. Clearly got a boot in the face. Were you watching on the radio by any chance?

Ya deserved red card , Crokes or Payne can have no arguments he threw the boot, it was unnecessary, dangerous, cost his team the free which was overturned and a numerical disadvantage

Admittedly Moloney could have seen red, think it would have been harsh though, think yellow was enough, put it this way Morgan's challenge which was similar was more dangerous it my opinion.

If you read my post correctly you would see I was comparing Moloney's 'shoulder' with Morgan's similar challenge last night - so maybe hold off on the ultra defensive attack and maybe call a spade a spade like I was willing to do

Replying To Jack_Goff:  "What does arra mean?"
Thanks for asking! It's an idiom, a figure of speech common to the Irish vernacular or Hiberno-English, if you prefer. You'll hear it used frequently the further west you travel from the area historically known as the Pale.

Welcome to Ireland, I hope you enjoy your stay and if the locals use any more big words you're not familiar with, post them here and we'll explain it to you.

I imagine we'll have to start with another local idiom you've probably heard a lot already, "gobshite".

Given the negative cognition of the term Ultras id not take what you say to seriously.
Morgan should have got the line last night simple as that.

one or two angles ok you couldnt see the boot hitting the Corofin player in the face, but one angle did show it, and regardless of contact he clearly kicked out at the player and had to go...the Corofin player had a bloody nose and mouth so contact was made...from a neutral point of view we had 2 poor club finals today...

Looking at the incident again on the box, the Corofin player puts his hand to his forehead after the stupid lash out by the Croke's number 2. Damage to the Corofins players mouth or nose appears to be inflicted by the knee of the Croke's no 14 who came charging in Dangerously and can probably count himself lucky not to see some color of card as well as the Deserved Red for the No. 2.

you are spot on, watched it again there the other night...the intent with the kick got him sent off as we all agree...
