Replying To WanPintWin:  "I'd agree in general, as I've seen Damien Comer fouled regularly without getting a free. At the same time, he and O'Shea play a game which involves taking on an opponent directly and carrying the ball into a tackle. O'Shea regularly looks for contact when he would often be better moving the ball quickly. Comer himself can try to take too much on further out the pitch, but he's at hìs best taking defenders on closer to goal.
Smaller players are usually trying to avoid contact, so any contact that does come is more likely to have been a foul."
True enough and good point Wanpint but even going for 50 50 ball the smaller forwards seem to get the frees a little easier imo.

Frees are awarded more easily in "open play, when a player carries the ball into contact I think referees lose "sympathy" even tho he maybe fouled.

You mention earlier that the Down footballers played the game the way it should be played, nice men on and off the field, totally agree, and ask any Westmeath man.
