Should Referees Be Asked To Explain

Replying To Canuck:  "Gatha it certainly looked like that. You are an honest guy. If it was the other way around from what you saw would you be happy? Like I have said things get missed but this was too one sided to dismiss. How rare is it to concede so few frees in nearly 40 minutes play as your opposition are getting them right left and centre. Some warranted and many of them soft excuse calls. If you are going to call over carrying then do it fair. I have the greatest respect for Kilkenny who most would agree play on the edge and rarely if ever go looking for frees."
If that is the case the GAA have some serious problems.

As a neutral I taught the ref done his best to get Kilkenny the win the other day. I don't mind a bad ref or someone having a bad day everyone can but when i ref blatantly favours one side over another its hard watch, Seeing it far to often lately too.

If they give him the final they certainly have serious problems and are not basing their decisions on performance. There is no earthly reason to use a Munster ref and it is a slight on all the other refs in the country. I don't wish him on Limerick or Waterford and if he screws Limerick over this time I will call it out also. Our opinions on refs can be subjective. Not on this occasion and I don't know what he was up to.

You got your wish I just read where Horgan is getting the final.

Why stop there Tom? Why not have Twitter refereeing the game. Only a free if enough #free #CavanVWexford within 5 seconds of an incident?
