Replying To ForeverBlue2:  "If the ball goes behind the crossbar it a point simple… it's no great skill putting the hurl up and stopping the ball going over… In the same way if a goalkeeper stands a meter behind the line and makes a point blank save should there be no goal awarded… bonkers stuff… If the ball goes behind the line or crossbar it's a score but the issue is that Hawkeye and all it cost cannot determine this and the GAA are as usual too embarrassed to admit it…. simple"
Have you ever played hurling - competitively? If so have you ever brought down a sliotar that has actually fully crossed over the bar. Remember the rule is the ball has to go fully across the line. I'm 6' 2" and I certainly think I would struggle, even I'm my prime. And I was a reasonable club senior & intermediate hurler in my day.

Young Clark that was in goals on Sunday must be 5' 8" with a push. He certainly didn't do it on Sunday. Which was proven by the slo mo's.

How difficult is it to comprehend that Hawkeye can determine above scenario? It has done in the past.

It's difficult to comprehend because TG4 confirmed after the game that they were told the technology on the day wasn't able to detect whether the sliotar has passed the crossbar. This is information TG4 received from officials at the game.
This has been mentioned a few times in this thread and you keep ignoring it. I included a link to their comment in a previous post.
As I've said, the GAA could put any confusion to bed with a very simple clarification.

Doesn't matter what you played..:: if the ball goes behind the crossbar it's a score and if it doesn't it's not….. simple but can Hawk eye determine this…? If not then it's a flawed system

I find it hard to believe that Hawk Eye technology can not do this. I do this all the time with the option of leading or trailing edge sensing. Leading edge is where the signal is activated when the front edge is detected. Trailing edge is where the leading edge is detected but the signal is not activated until the signal goes off again. A sensor in the ball could make sure nothing else triggers it like a hand or a hurley.
I honestly don't know what tech or platform being used and do not want to proclaim to be an expert on it either. However neither do I believe that they are not experimenting using the sensor in the ball. Come on using a sensor just to make sure it is the correct ball. Some thing a RFC bar code could do.

Of course I did but what you are suggesting makes absolutely no sense…. The real issue is …. Is there a problem with hawk eye… ? Can it determine a score properly..?
