Pro12 introduces neutral TMOs

Post by Dai Llewod on Tue Aug 23, 2016 6:39 pm

First topic message reminder :

A good move by PRO12, one which is to be applauded.


Martin Anayi:
“Ultimately, if you are listening to a match on television and you hear an Irish TMO speaking at a match in Ireland, as happened with Connacht versus the Ospreys, you are going to to think they are biased, even though we know they are not.”

Here you go. Taken from the web:-

cred·i·bil·i·ty
ˌkredəˈbilədē/
noun
the quality of being trusted and believed in.
"the government's loss of credibility"
synonyms: trustworthiness, reliability, dependability, integrity; reputation, status
"does he possess the moral credibility the party is looking for?"

The bits in BOLD.

The very fact, that we are talking about the refereeing situation means that the credibility of the Pro12 has been affected. Whether I believe it, you believe it, or anyone else. The fact that it is a constant debate, suggests that others are losing faith.

Now please, go and annoy somebody else.

Look its clear. If someone pays you money for a job you do, they are not your employer (an english fan confirms!). Unless you are an irish ref and then whoever pays you is your employer. And pointing out contradictions in arguments is arrogant. So ye feckers, stop being all arrogant with ye're fancy pants logic.

So what do people think of Anayi's proposal to have more neutral refs then?

I think it's a good move and adds to the credibility and quality of the league and will help reduce the perceptions and accusations of bias from fans.

I think it's great news and should be applauded, also, if he carries through wit hall his other promises, he could very well be the best thing that has happened to the Pro12. OK

I never said corrupt so please don't put words in my mouth

Yes I said they employ them, in what world is playing rugby a service role?

And if they are being paid by the RFU why does it matter if they are employed or not, the same principle exists that both receive money from the same source?

Ah so you did find out the definition was to be trusted or believed in. So again why do you believe there is no bias yet not trust the process and/or people?

But that is the point. The RFU do not employ them. They pay them whilst they represent them. They are still under employment to their clubs. The clubs get a payment for the use of the players as well, don't they ?

I'll leave it then after just going back to the point. No I don't think the reputation of the league is affected as the vast majority agree there is no bias.

No you are wrong but you are arguing with me about the minutiae yet if the same person is paying both how is it still not an issue with you? It seems you apply the same principles differently depending on how you want to argue

Just to add, the TMO for the game I quoted was somebody named Jude Quinn (never heard of him), there has been a TMO involved in a number of Welsh teams matches by the name of Aurwel Morgan he is from Glyneath and NEVER REFEREED a game in his life, he was a member of the committee of the WRU until very recently, there have been numerous complaints about Marshall Kilgore, the most recent of which was Scarlets against Ulster, Derek Bevan a former WC Referee has had numerous complaints about him by Welsh supporters, and you don't have to say anything about Scottish officiating, I have also read numerous times on here about the competency of referees like Fitzgibbon and Clancy by IRISH SUPPORTERS, there are more than likely MANY more that could be identified by ALL countries supporters on here.

 So what Ayani is doing is a step in the right direction, will it stop all doubts about the credibility of our League, NO, but for some it never will.

Faint morning hope of improvement from me. There's always the stylings of Martin Anayi to take the comedy output from Ireland up a notch I spose. Have you heard the one about the PrO'12 US franchise?

of very great extent or quantity; immense.

Does 1.2m fans through the turnstiles count as vast then? Not to mention those who watched on tv? The many employees of the club, league, unions, sponsors, production teams etc who rely on the league for jobs? What about the hundreds of players who play in the league? The thousands of young players who are hoping to play in it? Those numbers count as vast?

Seems some just want to be miserable and run things down regardless of reality because they are cantankerous furious

Neutral refs/TMOs should have been the norm since the start of the Magners/Rabbo/Guinness league.

Its possibly too late but its an important step to take as I believe it gives the league more credibility and puts it further on the path to being somewhat professional.

What I really want to see though is better training and more officials from the Scottish and Italian unions. I think supplying a minimum number of officials should be part of joining the league.

The only problem I have with the Pro12 is the situation we find ourselves in with the referees. But according to our Irish members on here I am not allowed to have an opinion on it, otherwise we get into internet fights where they start spouting nonsense and it is up to others to prove them wrong.

Marty, you said that in the UK judicial system, there are instances where the judge, solicitor, the person in the dock and the jury are all on the same payroll. Didn't you ? Now when you admit you said this, can you please tell me what you meant by it ?

And for the record, 7&1/2 is the worst for trying to be overly clever just to win the internet, as annoying as you can be at times, you are not at his level, in fact you are nowhere near his level.

+1 - It's a step in the right direction, but most seem to agree that the standard of reffing in the Pro12 is poor (not sure it's much better in Eng or Fra) and very few Irish fans are happy with Fitzgibbon or Clancy. Problem is that between the four Pro12 countries only three - Owens, Lacey and Clancy (!) - ref at international level although I think that Mitrea - thought not without his faults - is as good as many on the panel of 12 that reffed last year's 6N. Being a ref is a tough and for a lot of the time a thankless task but it has to be a real concern that a country with a rugby tradition like Wales can only produce one elite ref in the shape of Owens while Scotland can't produce any at all.

Marty, you said that in the UK judicial system, there are instances where the judge, solicitor, the person in the dock and the jury are all on the same payroll. Didn't you ? Now when you admit you said this, can you please tell me what you meant by it ?

And for the record, 7&1/2 is the worst for trying to be overly clever just to win the internet, as annoying as you can be at times, you are not at his level, in fact you are nowhere near his level.

That's not what I said

But what I meant is what I said, that the same department pays most if not all sides in some legal cases

It wasn't written in code

Ben Whitehouse. Yes, he is a very good up and coming ref.

Look, for me, nationality should not come into it. A ref is a ref, and you will always get calls of bias, no matter where the ref lives, or was born. If a ref is from Cardiff, then you might get Ospreys fans thinking he is biased against them, but he is still Welsh reffing two Welsh teams.

For me, it's all for about the reputation of the Pro12, when we have referees and teams all employed under the same banner, then it gives people leverage, rightly or wrongly, to question the credibility of the league. If Martin Anayi eventually achieves all his goals, then we will see a centrally contracted team of refs, employed by the Pro12, this in my opinion will be massive.

They'll all still have to belong and be employed by a Union. Which still renders it completely uneven as long as there are Union owned and run teams in the league. Unless of course the referees are not from Wal, Ire, Sco or Italy.

Hardly uneven when union paid players are part of the other teams Rolling Eyes

Grasp what ? Going by your reply's you are suggesting that the UK judicial system is corrupt. If that is not what your implying, then you need to explain.

Your problem, and the problem with some of those of NuGwlad, is that you're against Unions, and no matter how much change is brought about you will always oppose Union owned teams.

It's the new site set up because Gwlad is closing down soon. They have all moved over there now, and it's free.
