maybe on the spur of the moment she did 'mouth off' about his decision to award a free aginst her, but who doesn't? Any normal referee should be able to cope with a player expressing a momentary comment of dissatisfaction - especially when this was probably an expression of her own foolishness at committing a transgression rather than directed at the referee for awarding it.
Common sense must appply in such situations and a simple word in Valerie's ear would have sufficed. As one commentator expressed afterwards "It was a weak yellow card offence at best".
I hope the referee will admit to as much in his report and that Valerie can take her place on the team in Croke Park on All Ireland Final day - any other outcome would be a pure travesty.
