Replying To Viking66:  "That's a bit strong Canuck. I don't think you were cheated out of a result. It was a 65. If it had of been waved wide then Clare would've been cheated out of a result though."
What about the 65 in the first minute that would have ended up in the net if not put out and yere man deciding the Tipp game. Mistakes happen and it is too easy to say it evens out. It does not if bad decisions puts you in or out. There is no excuse for not making an attempt to corrrct errors how games are officiated. We were robbed yesterday. I don't know if you were there but the shots to the head, pulling around the neck in the first half was off the charts. He chose to let it go. Absolutely no consistency from game to game with these officials. Pay them and sack them instead of the big guys at head quarters.

Replying To LohansRedHelmet:  "Cheated????

Did the ref put the ball in your net 4 times? I thought if anything the ref gave ye soft frees all day. Long the penalty was very dubious considering the Waterford player was throwig himself to the ground before the tackle. Please also dont nit pick certain decisions. There was a blatent dive in the first half by a Waterford player where is faked head contact to win to a free that ye scored.

I understand ye are frustrated as i feel we were there for the taking yesterday but ye couldnt do it and cant expect to win conceeding 4 goals and for that ye only have yourselves to blame not anyone else."
Anyone who thinks that wasn't a penalty is myopic

Replying To Canuck:  "I don't agree much with Davy or his antics. The umpire was wrong and made a guess. Had his hands ready to wave it wide. Then changed his mind. You have not mentioned the first 65 if the goalie did not put it wide would have gone in the net. The ref has a tough job but allowing these guys decide games is time out. Plenty of electronic ways to collect scores and a decisions like these need review."
Can understand your frustration as Waterford played great stuff but the Umpire made the right call, De Burca probably could have shielded the ball out. To say you were "cheated" is unfair, Clare dug it out and played very well. It was a great game for the neutral.
Play to that standard again next week and there is every chance you are going to trouble Limerick. Its going to be a nervy weekend for many of us.

Any update on DOD, his loss at midfield has really been highlighted in the last few games. Middle third is far less fluid moving the ball without him. He always brought that bit of calm to the frenetic chaos of the middle third.

Nice to see how people's match predictions were blown out the window. Nobody saw this performance from Cork coming. They're growing in confidence, and with any luck will feature in all Ireland competition.

The umpire guessed and got the decision right. Whatever magical technological solution would have come up with the same decision. It was the correct call.

The referee didn't decide the game. Waterford got some questionable calls and Clare got some questionable calls. The same as in every hurling game ever played or ever will be played.

Completely neutral here and thought the Waterford penalty was certainly a questionable decision. It looked to me as if the Waterford forward dives into the contact.

Falls under the 'seen them given' category. I wouldn't castigate the ref for giving the penalty nor would I castigate the ref if he had not given the penalty either.

Watch it again. He was heading for the floor before any contact. Ryan didnt need to touch him after that and in the split second the ref had to make up his mind, it looked like to him that Ryan had sent him to the ground. I am not blaming the ref, I actually blame Ryan for following through but the Waterford player was on the way down before Ryan touched him
