Replying To Onfor15:  "2 things on that

1. I wouldn't describe castletown as a dirty team at all. But you don't have to be dirty to concede a lot of frees. Are they just that little bit too vigorous in the tackle? Whereas other teams know where to draw the line?

2. Does the modern free count include advantages being played to a team or only the actual frees blown and given? If it's the latter then, free counts are now unreliable statistics."
I think this post is pretty spot on.

You could easily concede three frees in the first five minutes of a match alone, if the ref is being particularly strict with the handpass rule, for example. And you could concede four or five more for overcarrying over the course of a game, if your man is held up by the opposition, without the opposition actually fouling him. So that could be close to ten frees given away without doing anything "dirty".

Pretty sure it's also correct about free counts not including times when advantage is played. I certainly don't include them when doing stats for my club, and I'd be surprised if any of the press reporters included them.

Replying To wexico15:  "Taught the referee did well last Sunday barely noticed him which is always a good sign, free count surprised me as certainly didn't seem like 1 team was more illdisciplined or 1 team to the rough end of the stick from the ref."
Overall id be in agreement - I thought the ref did well and i was talking to a few castletown lads who were at the game and they never mentioned anything about the ref so im guessing that they were happy enuf with him. but i thought it was odd how the numbers panned out. Never thought about the advantage rule and to be fair there were a few advantages played. one other big thing was the mark. i think there were 10 marks in the game (Nick doyle got 5 alone)

Unfortunately looks like alot of clubs have learned that the mentality around end of year booze ups will need to change for the foreseeable...

Maybe give some details on this??

If its videos of teams celebrating you do realise thats 2 weeks old and the unfortunate consequences of some those incidents only came to light in the last 7 days when as I said some harsh lessons hopefully were learned...
