Dudley Phillips

Post by PhilBB on Wed 28 Sep 2016, 5:15 pm

First topic message reminder :

Dudley Phillips is employed by the IRFU as a "Participation Rugby Operations Officer". He used to be part of the Leinster Branch Rugby Referees: http://www.arlb.ie/?tag=dudley-philips

This weekend he is refereeing....... Leinster.

Now, I remember being told explicitly by Sin e that this kind of thing couldn't happen.

Dudley has never refereed Leinster before.

Seriously ? You honestly need me to point this out to you ? Or are you just being ironic ?

Martin Anayi announced to the world his great new changes at the start of the season, it was a breath of fresh air, now after all his announcements, we are still in a position where a hometown ref can officiate his team in a professional rugby match, and we are in a position, where some games get TMO's and some do not, and some refs get a higher level of communication than others do in other games.

You really cannot see how shoddy, and amateur all this looks ?

Isn't the point of a message board to work out which contributors are accurate and which are full of it?

Sin is constantly full of it. Let's all see that for what it is.

LD, if you want to see who is being childish here he is

I was only ever challenging Sin, for Sin writes some tremendously inaccurate nonsense on this board.

It's not childish to highlight the inaccuracy of posters. It's a common theme in comprehending the value of their contribution.

Explains why you get highlighted a lot then

It does, because I challenge what seems to be the accepted norm of a small group of Irish rugby followers, like Sin, who I then have to continually disprove.

Good to see that you're playing the man. Again.

Here we go. Deniability. Everyone, even the English on the threads right beside us, they all believe nothing happened and haven't heard anything back from their respective clubs and contacts that plenty DID happen. Go ask some of them - they're still here. They'll tell you plenty. I've heard plenty.

Deniability is the key used to 'protect' the World Cup from embarrassment. So you go right ahead and use the same technique to avoid an argument that killed your idea that AP and Top14 would never allow shady dealings to happen. You know they would, you know they did - but your latest point won't allow you to admit it.

Fair play, you jump to some crazy conclusions. First wanting an apology, now accusations of lying. Crazy.

I'm sure Sin e wrote the claim in good faith.

This thread was created to show the ludicrous nature of this league. A side benefit of which was to again underline the BS that Sin e writes.

You just explain this BS in relation to that Pro12 final weekend:

"The Irish rugby followers don't care, Dowellais. They don't care about any of this.

Why they don't care is an interesting question, but care they do not."

Rather than always highlighting BS, explain some away there. We need to clear up some of this BS.

What this thread highlights is the total amateur attitude towards the running of our league. Martin Anayi promised us the world, he has given the same old cr@p.

No. Why would they ? I am not saying it does not happen, but I am sure they would not allow it.

Anyway, the situation with the officials in the Pro12 is not "shady", it is pure amateurism. It puts the Pro12 in a bad light. Why would you except this ? Are you satisfied with this situation ? Would you not demand a more professional outlook ?

One thing we can all agree on, is the fact that the Pro12 is falling behind it's competitors, another thing we can all agree with is that we all want the Pro12 to prosper. Do you honestly think the situation we are finding ourselves in with our officials is helping us meets these ends ?

Shady and corrupt is a good few notches up from amateurism in my immoral book.  But obviously in the eyes of some here, professionalism allows a degree of covered-up corruption in order to maintain league position - for the shareholders and sponsors and all.

Yeah, we're missing a load of that.  We should include more of it to stay competitive with Top14 and AP.

His changes were not the wave of a magic wand, they were targets to be meet over the next few years

I had a chat with a Leinster fan on twitter yesterday evening. He reckons that the Leinster society referee, Dudley, will overcompensate when refereeing, erm, Leinster, meaning it will be a Cardiff win.

See? This is a no win situation for any party involved. It's bad for the referee, it's bad for both teams, both sets of supporters and it makes the league look amateurish.

No they don't say one thing then do another

As you've been told it wasn't an overnight fix they were going for, its going to take a few years to reach their targets but you can't seem to get your head around it

You are criticising decisions without knowing the process used to reach the decision

Is it ideal? No, but the last time a similar decision was taken Alain Rolland reffed Leinster and Munster, Munster were asked if they were ok with it and said they were

Being Welsh and refereeing a Welsh team is not in the same league as reffing the IRFU controlled Leinster, full of IRFU employees, whilst being an IRFU employee yourself and being part of the Leinster Referees society.

That is blindingly obvious.

No, it is a forum for people who share a common interest to discuss it with other, like-minded people. If it's working in an ideal fashion, it is an enjoyable and good-natured discussion which is respectful and considerate. On the internet that is rare enough but thats the ideal.

No, what is obvious is that PRO12 took the option of sending an away ref with the away team, as is normal when a neutral ref isn't available. I'm not arguing that it's ideal. It isn't, but hardly the fault of PRO12 when there is a lack of Scottish and Italian refs.

I notice KID A/Chunky/Dai has posted the very same topic on Planet Rugby. Aided by yet another Dai. The games people play.

Again, KID A/Chunky/Dai is @smallclone

Being Welsh and refereeing a Welsh team is not in the same league as reffing the IRFU controlled Leinster, full of IRFU employees, whilst being an IRFU employee yourself and being part of the Leinster Referees society.

That is blindingly obvious.

Smallclone hasn't two brain cells to rub together. Makes sense.


Yay! Play the man. Ignore the message.

What an odd collection of Irish rugby followers this message board has accumulated.




I answered your message. What man was I playing? Slip?

So what you are telling us is, that out of ALL the Irish refs available, the only one that the Pro12 could use was one that was contracted to the Leinster branch, for a Leinster game ? The nationality of the refs is not in question, can you see how this looks ? I cannot understand how you would want to except this in a professional league ? Why ? Why would you accept this ?

I hope this is directed at some of your fellow Irish mates on here as well. OK

It's directed at everybody. Of course, people who take the bait and react to stuff need to know better but they are not necessarily the core of the problem. People get very defensive when they are criticised or patronised and you end up with a 'debate' which is just about one upmanship.

Understood.

I'll look out for the respectful and considerate responses from the small collective of Irish rugby followers who have yet to show me any.

No, what is obvious is that PRO12 took the option of sending an away ref with the away team, as is normal when a neutral ref isn't available. I'm not arguing that it's ideal. It isn't, but hardly the fault of PRO12 when there is a lack of Scottish and Italian refs.

The neutral referee is flying the other way, mate. He's going to Galway.

You didn't answer the message. You were playing smallclone, a mate of mine and fellow Gwlader who supports Llanelli. It really needs to get into your brain that he and I are very different people. It will help you a lot once you've grasped that.
