Replying To ecad123:  "He did not make the right call he should have let the play go, give the advantage and then give lawlor a ticking afterwards. Watch the Shane o Donnell goal v Galway in 2018 replay, when burke held him, he allowed more steps then the goal came out of it and he then went back to book him. Same ref."
Well he should not have allowed more steps. Have you ever stood on a field of play in the heat of a battle and made a call as a ref I doubt it. And yes I have! It's easy in your chair at home with all the aids of a tv remote to make your call.

Just as a club player not a ref. I do think they have a hard job but you have the advantage rule so use it. I think he knows himself that he could have handled it better which is fine we are all human. We should be allowed have constructive criticism of refs and I think they welcome this but not to abuse them. In hurling you nearly have to improvise as the rule book will never have all the answers.

Replying To SupermanSub:  "Horgan made the right call on the burke incident, and when a player is in advantage and fouls the ball or overcarrys the ball it then becomes a free against him. Yes it is frustrating that you only get a split second to make a decision as a ref you only have one angle to view it from no slow motion. Just imagine burke having been fouled and then having a free against him for taking too many steps who would ye lynch then."
I disagree, it should be like rugby where the referee raises his hand to signify an advantage, and if no advantage transpires within say five seconds, then you come back to the original transgression. So as regards your point of a player taking too many steps or committing a foul during the advantage, it wouldn't matter, as you would still come back to the original foul. The whole purpose of an advantage is that the non-offending team benefits from the advantage, and if not you come back for the original foul.

But it's not rugby at times I do wonder at times tho. The gaa referee does raise a hand he can allow up to 5 seconds advantage at his discretion. Remember we are dealing with split second decisions, most bring it back when a player gets turned or a second defender gets involved. If you watch closely most defenders stop playing on hearing a whistle while the attackers play on normally finishing the score or laying off a pass even tho the play has stopped. I agree the "professional foul" directly in line with goal should be severely punished but how? I'd like a penalty if it happens inside the 20 in line with goal I'm not a fan of black card penalty and automatic yellow should work well I think. Also too often we blame a referee when clearly against tipp I feel it was our own players who let a 5 point lead slip only Galway would do it the same old failings again.
