It is unusual, most people criticise ref after the match.

Let's hope there are no controversial calls for either side, otherwise this appointment will back fire on the GAA. An awful lot of pressure now heaped on him.

Hopefully he has a good game but going by what happened in the hurling even if he makes the correct call he may get hassle

Replying To witnof:  "Actually on the Kevin Mc shoulder since I was up the other end I thought it was a great shoulder.

The Kerry guys around us as well.

It wasn't till we go home and show replays we realised is was to shoulder.

At speed in a big game you accept error of judgements......or then you will never have any sport"
It's funny how those error of judgements never go against the dubs though.

Exactly Gerry, some of those lads down in the South West are good at it in fairness though.
Always playing the aul fiddle too.

Replying To catch22:  "Hahaaaa ! So terribly unlucky."
Yes, very unlucky.
Joe McKiernan overlooked the double-hop of McManamon very late in the 2011 final allowing McManamon to go on to score his famous goal. A free for the double-hop would most likely have resulted in a Kerry point and a Kerry win. And, Joe went on to give the softest of frees allowing Cluxton to win the game for Dublin. Considering that it's normally virtually impossible to get a free within scoring range in the last few vital minutes - for example, the Crowley/McManamon incident in the 2016 AISF - Joe's decision was 'unusual'.

Unbelievably, Joe again missed a McManamon double hop in the Dublin/Mayo semi-final in 2015.

Oh, BTW, guess who the sideline man was in 2016 who might have alerted David Gough to the McManamon foul on Crowley ? A Magnum to the first correct answer.

Ye could do a great range of whatsboutery hats and t-shirts in Kerry. It might help raise a few bob to buy chips and sausages for the players after the final.
Sounds like a real case of having your excuses ready before the final to me.
The aul cheeks are getting sweaty in Kerry I see.

Yes! Well done! If It's Joe McKiernan you are referring to, the Magnum is yours.

Never heard of a referee called Joe Mc Kiernan. Armagh player and manager with a similar sounding name alright. Don't think he was a referee though.

Ehh they did. A OM's shoulder charge into the chest of Philly MacMahon was an arguable red. He missed e possible black cards against Kerry players in 2016 semi-final.
Check out the debate on this issue in the Kerry GAA Fans forum, not the one affiliated to Hogan Stand. A few Kerry posters there said AoM was lucky to stay on the pitch. Of course this is all forgotten.
We also had a Kerry player administer some eye surgery to Jack McCaffrey which rarely gets mentioned now.
