OMeara"s Yellow Card Turnes To Red (A Disgrace)

(Oldest Posts First)

Just heard that O'Meara's yelllow card was upgraded to a red.

Surely this can be turned over as what about circumstances where a point is a point & its waved wide or vice versa.

There should be no re-visiting on incidents when a match is over unless really serious. There was far worse than O'Meara's incident on Sunday even before the ball was thrown in.

GAA HQ & The Refs Board are a disgrace.

Thats a good point roundball. Thats probably why they dished out a suspension. If nothing happened in the Wex game youd wonder would he still have got the suspension.

Probably not. I think RTE should stop showing these incidents as well. They prejudice the decision by putting the CCCC under pressure. They picked out some incident from Down Donegal too. I'm not against citing, just witch hunting and trial by Sunday Game.

The problem here is the lack of consistency. The RTE Sunday Sport panel ignored the Horgan-Fanning incident in the league game in Pairc Ui Chaoimh but chose to highlight Brian O'Meara's foul last Sunday. But that does not exonerate the CCCC, which should have a mind of its own and not simply be reacting to the RTE "experts".

Barry Kelly was asked to review the caution & incident.

In the case of last years All-Ireland there was no re-visation & even when Cork were wrongly awarded a penalty last year in the Munster Final v Limerick & this cost Limerick a Munster Final.The GAA still stood beside the ref & backed him even when he made an error. If Barry Kelly made an error in not sending off O'Meara last week then the GAA should come out & say we made a mistake.

In 2003 Eamon Corcoran was wrongly dismissed against Galway & even the Galway player came forward & pleaded with the CCCC to drop the suspension & Corcoran got like 12 weeks.

The CCCC dont know what they are doing & what is wrong & what is right in our games.

I think it is strange that the O'Meara incident was revisited. Surely Cussen's late and dangerous tackle on Paddy Stapleton should also have been
revisited. He caught Stapleton when he was quite open having just passed the ball. Many referees would give a red card for it. However we were beaten on the filed and not by the referee.

ogormanmahon, good point, Cussen's challenge i think got a yellow but it was probably worse than O'Meara's. If you look at O'Meara's, he went for a shoulder to shoulder and O'Neill ducked and turned at the same time resulting in him getting the challenge straight to the head rather than the shoulder. To be honest i think it wasnt even a yellow
