RTE are now running with the story. they must be really scrapping the barrel, check out there website.
One interesting point raised was that they also mentioned the motion to suspend relegation this year a motion raised at the start of the year and supported by Spideal. Could be a shorter year than expected!

Replying To WanPintWin:  "The issue is they weren't a point down according to everyone else who was keeping score. It appears the ref didn't note an additional point in the first half. The game would have been level in that case and a point from the free would have won the game."
If the score-keeping mistake happened in the first half as reported why didn't Spiddal pick this up at half time?
That was the time to flag it..!!!!
Surely it's common practice to ask the ref for the official score at half time and then highlight any discrepancy before the second half?
It's a tough one if they go down on something like this but I can't see the Co. Board overturning the result.

Most clubs in the county supported that motion.

So it's the job of the club to assume the ref might have made a mistake in score-keeping? They have enough on their plate trying to focus on winning a must-win match against a good team.
The ref is responsible for score-keeping. He made a mistake in this case, which cost a team the win.
No matter how you spin it, that's what happened. Based on that, an appeal against the result is absolutley valid. It's also important that issues like this are raised so they don't happen again.

With all the selectors & "stats men" etc on the line surely one of them could keep score & then at half time raise it with ref? Every game I played you always ask for score at half time.

Spiddal know they will not be successful with the appeal. They are just trying to prove a point.

Agreed.
Their appeal is that the match be officially scored a draw. An outcome that would not make any difference to final standings in the group. They were obviously wronged and want to make a point of it.

An Spideal need to let this go. Ref got ot wrong and should be punished for it. But the error happened in the first half. They also sent an official complaint against Kilconieron GAA last month.

Back to the games and forget about what's going on at county board level.
I feel Tuam will be caught by barna, need to man mark curran, he hurt salthill one on one.
Be interesting to see how finerty and salthill forwards get on against corrofin, I can never judge where corrofin are defensively so that'll give me a good gauge.
James nothing to loose against moycullen, this will really show how intent moycullen are on this years champo
Think killanin will cause mm trouble with sweeney but mm to pull away

Get on with it. What was there complaint against Kilconieron? If they good enough they will stay up & win a game in the relegation battle.

you should say " get on with it " again to really make sure it hits home.

Ya, shame on a club for wanting to raise an issue about incorrect score-keeping costing them an important match.
Errors should never be pointed out. That way they'll never be dealt with. Fine logic there.
Put your head down and don't challenge any wrongs. That served us well as a county over the past 10 years, didn't it.

The complaint was that a Kilconieron player shouted some insulting remarks towards some An Spidéal fans about Conamara. They had video evidence and sent an offical complaint to the county board. Heard it on nuacht RnaG. Funny thing about it is that there is sweet nothing in Kilconieron lol.

Ah god they got a 20point hammering and there concern was a fan said something about their beloved Conamara? Matches are win & lost in between the white lines. GET ON WITH IT. Concentrate on the relegation battle in BOTH codes. Ref made a mistake which they knew at HT as would have asked for score. They were something like 6points up against 14 men lost their other 2games have a look in the mirror & show Same fight on pitch as in appeals & complaints & they will get out of it.

You seriously need to build a bridge at this point!
spiddal are appealing they have a right to get it investigated Thats all. In the game there's always going to be decisions made by refs that teams disagree with but a basic score keeping is something that should never be one!
This will hopefully ensure this doesn't happen to another team - surely we should expect a score board at senior matches ? Or is there a higher risk of getting covid?;)
