Conceding games should be a punishable offence

(Oldest Posts First)

I see a number of games conceded at the weekend.

So I have a few questions relating to this,the first being did the teams that received the points travel or tog out and field with refereeing officials in place as required?

Secondly, should the clubs associated with these teams be disciplined? The attitude adapted by these offending clubs shows little respect for the GAA never mind the discipline and attitude within their own clubs?

My solution is that these non-playing teams should be deducted points in the league or in next season's league in order to eradicate or at least minimise such practices in the future.

As usual some more rubbish from our Gael's man. What is the differance in conceding a game-- that is informing the county board, the ref. and the other team that the game is not going ahead or playing a so call game and getting beat 0-6 to 2-14? At least by informing the CB that the game is not on will save the cb money!Also I think you are wrong to say that the team must be togged out and the ref in place before a game is conceded.

You'll find that referees still get paid in most cases where games are conceded. The issue is something the c.board has failed to stamp out and the clubs gat way with. I say, shame on the clubs who engage in this.

i dount if a referee would get any expenses if he doesnt have to refree a match. if game conceding is a biggest issue for the townies then no wonderig their players are tweeting negative comments.

I think the matter of conceding games shouldn't be swept under the carpet and should be discussed at convention level or at least by the new elected co board.
