Hurling’s sin bin may still be stripped lower back because it has develop into over-prescribed, in accordance with Liam Griffin.
the former Wexford manager may keep in mind why James Owens opted to briefly send off Clare’s Aidan McCarthy in closing Sunday week’s Munster semi-last most effective because of the guideline in region.
Simplifying the experimental measure in area for this year’s senior inter-county season would go a protracted approach to curbing cynicism, argues Griffin. “I simply think the complete area is over-prescribed at the minute. You’re taking VAR – it’s right here to dwell, it’s respectable and it’s healthful. However there’s a huge subject with VAR – if your fingernail is over the line, you’re offside. No one changed into given the choice to debate that. They have been advised, ‘That’s the brand new rule and that’s it’.
“We should still get a good barrister to untangle the rules that we’re making. Every little thing is over-prescribed. So if it’s internal the 21-yard line and the referee deems it to be a cynical foul then it’s a penalty.
“somebody wrote to me in a text the different day that there have been two and a half guys (Clare defenders) interior when Jake Morris turned into fouled. Two and a half guys? Now you rationalise that to me. After we’re right down to that variety of nonsense it’s over-prescribed but we’ve a addiction of doing this. The place here is all coming from I don’t understand but we need to root it out.
It’s in principles that we may still be dealing with, no longer caught in a quagmire of over-prescription that hurling now finds itself in and forestall making the rules so dangerous that anybody, anyplace can get a hold of a distinct interpretation of the guideline.
within the wake of Owens’s choice, there have been calls for the sin bin to be scrapped however Griffin says losing the possibility to address cynicism in hurling would be unthinkable.
“turned into there a problem with cynical fouling? A massive issue. It’s been confirmed in a study that the groups who foul essentially the most are successful video games. How is that a fact? How is that no longer an absolute underlying principle of the video game that groups can do this? It’s an abomination. We should still be anxious to are attempting and weed out stuff.”
James Owens’s one primary error in the Clare-Tipperary online game, Griffin contends, become in no longer awarding Aaron Shanagher a penalty near the conclusion of the online game when he and Barry Heffernan contended at the fringe of Tipperary’s rectangular.
“I appeared lower back on it once more and i concept it become a stonewall penalty. I am now not attempting to be overly shielding as a fellow Wexford man however he’s a good referee, a record and he is just not tarnished by that.
“Did he make a mistake with the sin bin? Everyone says there were two defenders interior him however what if he (Morris) bypassed them by using squaring the ball to a group-mate to shoot? But because of over-prescription we now have destroyed what turned into going to be a good idea. Whoever did it, he would need to do it far and wide once again. The precept is adequate.”
