Replying To KillingFields:  "Well punish the club in some cases if club actively defends someone inspite of indesputable evidence."
I agree with that but the big wigs of the GAA never seem to take that route…. They are hopeless at tackling any sort of controversy…!!

Replying To ForeverBlue2:  "Any questioning of a referee and his poor performance will always be termed as abuse by nanny state people like yourself… Nothing can be said to anyone anymore regardless of what mess they make…referees included.. We have turned into the ultimate nanny state…!"
It is perfectly acceptable to criticise people if it is warranted. It is also entirely possible to make your point clearly without being abusive. Your last post was nonsense.

It's actually quiet, not quite. Ignorance being shown across the board.

Quit when you're behind. You're hiding behind your "nanny state" bluff and are refusing to accept the fact that you are condoning abusive behaviour. By all means criticise a referee's poor performance but do so in a way that respects the dignity of the person. That's not "nanny state" behaviour. It is common decency which is a concept with which you seem to be entirely unfamiliar.

No. He was referring to your poor spelling and general ignorance.

A simple error which by going to the bother of pointing it out or commenting on it only highlights your lack of intelligence about the issue in hand… Bad refereeing and the reason they get verbal abuse.. You should have heard some of the stuff been shouted at the ref at the rugby yesterday…

It's being, not been. Underlying your utter ignorance at this stage. They might cover those grammatical issues tomorrow in school for you.
