Replying To bloodyban:  "It is wrong yes. Hegartys slap was a yellow ..it was on handed and the flat of the hurley. It wasnt a red in any way shape or form."
Sounds like the rulebook needs to start playing by the "rules"

it seems that RTE analysts and "hurling people" have a very interesting interpretation of the rulebook generally!! Sometimes you'd wonder why there's a rulebook at all...

You did not by any chance notice the following sentence from the same article 'John Donnelly was the recipeint of common sense too when he broke a hurley acroos Tadgh de Burca and it was the right call'. One law for Hegarty and as always a different one for Ciaody's boys.

Also 'Manning took Gillane out of it and should have been yellow carded'

Don't know why Hegarty resorts to this! He spoilt a man of the match impeccable performance with the strike on Canning. He is a big , fast awkward hurler ... the type a halfback hates to mark. Limerick are a good physical team but I hope Waterford win the All Ireland... their style of play is much more entertaining

If there was another Season of Game of Thrones I'd imagine half the Limerick team would be in it!

It's amazing limerick have now turned into enemy number 1..we know every county bar our own will be shouting for Waterford..I'd be the same myself..I said yesterday hego was stupid and it looked terrible..definite yellow and could have been red..I said to that if the limerick ref was there it was a red and no questions..it's a pity because I don't think our fellas need to resort to that kind of stuff..everyone of them able to hurl and all are as good as what's in country..I'm looking forward to every county in Ireland shouting for Waterford but there are enough of us in limerick to outshout them all..it looks like we are in the position of Dublin footballers,no one likes us,we don't care..

What are you on about? In the very same paragraph, he states that both Neil Montgomery and Jamie Barron from Waterford were also given the benefit of the doubt for their high use of the hurl, so how in the hell is it "as always a different one for Ciaody's boys."?
Furthermore, the most striking/discussed incident of that type during the game was Barron striking Donnelly with the hurl across the face guard with no chance of getting near the ball, so again how is it a different rule for Cody's boys?.

I'd hate to have a game of hurling where Barron got sent off for that incident, but he can count his lucky stars he did it when playing against one of the teams whose players are not prone to diving to get players sent off

I'm surprised at you Oldtourman, I thought you'd have player safety and health as a priority on the hurling field no matter what counties are playing. When a player strikes another deliberately with a hurley to take him out or injure him to nullify his influence that is a red card offence and rightly so, it doesn't matter where he's from.

Rockies. No wonder A Daly said when Clare won the second All Ireland 'the whole country (hurling people) wished they would **** off back to their Irish music'. And if Waterford win Sunday, and we will be the first to congratulate them, twill be the same with them. The big three will always support each other. Any team that is scoring an average of over thirty points a game are hardly poor or negative hurlers.

I agree, there was no need for it, Limerick were the better team but it left a sour taste. Hope you don't start playing the victim now like the poor Dubs!

Is it just me or does G. Heg get away with murder in the games? As a neutral he is a joy to watch and he is one of the calmest people I have ever seen on the ball but he must of fouled about 12 times yesterday without even been spoken to. Was probably lucky that his incident with J.C. was missed would deffo have been a card.
It just boggles my mind. Surely Waterford will be ware of this and will question it with every foul he makes
(Good to hear that the damage to Joe is not more severe)

I said Hegarty was rightly criticused. But is nobody highlighting the Donnelly incident and why is a referring critic condoning it.

Is not Tadgh de Burca just as entitled to player protection as Joe ( not that much protection from the Loughrea points in that Galway when he was a teenager). I might also point out that the same critic said 'Mannion took Gillane out of it with a hurl and should have got a yellow card'.

Lot of pressure on Waterford to deliver! No All Ireland since 1959 ! Some great teams and players since then ... Tony Browne;Mullane;Dan the man; Ken McGrath .., etc etc . This is their best opportunity but won't be easy, as Limerick are very hard to break down. Need a masterclass from Austin Gleeson, but Limerick will be odds on to win!

Of course the other one was the most 'discussed incident'. Confirms my point.

While you're at it, tell John Kiely that big hits as he called them is not the same as striking with the hurley. I wonder is the term 'big hits' in the rule book. In my time striking a player in the back when he couldn't protect himself was regarded as cowardly & sneaky.
