All Ireland Final Referee

(Oldest Posts First)

I am sure both counties will welcome Michael Wadding as the final referee. Last year I predicted accurately that Dermot Kirwan would give the important marginal decisions to Kilkenny. I forewarned Tipperary officials,supporters,and the G.A.A. hierarchy about his capabilities. I also in a constructive and mannerly way asked Dermot Kirwan to debate his performance after the final. Naturally I got no reply. However on the All Stars tour to Argentina he choose to give a press conference justifying two particularly inexplicable decisions which went against Tipperary. This season he has not reffed any big game. Who says supporters are never listened to.!!

Good ref & will let the game flow and be physical.

However, the Tipp backs won't get away with what they did to Mullane in the semi final with Wadding on duty.

good luck to him hope he'll let it flow and hope to god he'll take action against the kk backs if necessary jackie tyrell's dangerous frontal charge on callinan springs to mind lucky callinan didn't break a rib
