Black card madness - 1 Like(s)
Was rightly peed off by Mayo tactical fouling last week. All when Sligo on the break but not in scoring territory. This is as cynical as black card offences. I think there should be a rule like bsketball where after x number of fouls by team, penalty is free shots to opposition. So after x number of fouls regardless of where on the pitch, the free is say a 45 if coming from own half or 13m if in opposition half. Not only that, black cards give automatic 13m free and maybe make them worth 2 points.
Another is to given the wronged team possession on half way line after they take their black card free,regardless of whether time is up or not.
Problem with black card is punishment doesn't fit the crime and we always hear of taking one for the team. If team is a goal down and black card given, then if they got 2 points and possession it would make things interesting.
Iwas at an Afl game recently where a water carrier crossed the pitch between a player and his mark. 50m penalty which meant a goal. The players know not to do it.
