Henderson's red card overturned - those damned TMOs. Empty Henderson's red card overturned - those damned TMOs.

Post by clivemcl Wed 13 May 2015, 2:51 pm

Basically creating this thread for Chunky so he can lay into TMOs when they make dodgy calls.....
Don't pull your punches this time Chunky!


On a more serious note though, like I've always asked - what happens in these cases behind the scenes???

Effectively - the panel has come out and said 'Errrr that was a wrong call'.

So, how many folks on here work in jobs where they do something wrong and the bosses shrug and say 'meh!'.

Not many I imagine.

Are refs and officials held to a high enough standard, that makes the tradition of respecting the ref easy to maintain?

If I sound like I have an agenda - it's probably because I do.

Do Nigel Owens or Kevin Beggs get penalised anyway for their incorrect call, do they at least get a 'refresher course' on this area of play. Or does nobody say anything, and allow them to continue earning a salary without question??

They said that Nigel didn't have the benefit of watching it up close as they did. Not sure how they can argue the TMO didn't though. Anyway it's a split second thing. I presume if panels found that they kept having to overturn decisions of one official then it would be looked at but one incident hardly needs to be examined

Terrible decision. Deserved 2 weeks.

But can't have the golden boy missing the semi.

It was Owens that made the call. I was surprised actually as Owens is usually pretty measured - by contrast Barnes would have red carded the whole Ulster team including the bench.

Yellow card would have done it so think the panel have got it right.

Can't believe you would go and hypocritically defend the TMO in this case Chunky.Especxially since Kevin Beggs is a Leinsterman and is clearly biased with sour grapes against Ulster!!!

There wouldn't have been a yellow card.

Owens gave Henderson a red card for leading with the head. The panel watched the footage and saw he didn't lead with the head.

Ergo, no card.

Strange comment.

The TMO and the referee for once got it right in Belfast. But this time the unfortunate losers will be Glasgow not the the opposition on the night.

Ergo, no card.

Entering the ruck unbound, late and off the feet is still a penalty and there was contact with O'Mahoney's head with Henderson arm. The panel correctly ruled that Henderson didn't lead with the head but would be amazed if there was no card as it was pretty reckless and dangerous.

It looked worse in slow motion though so surprised someone as experienced as Barnes overreacted with the red card.

No, Kingspan TMOs NEVER get it right - you've been quite clear on that.

Three Welshmen said it wasn't a flying headbutt.

I'm going to call it, Chunky - you just hate Ulster, in the most tedious fashion.

Please don't lie.

I've said that Ulster frequently get born and bred Ulstermen on TMO duty. Which is true, and therefore the incorrect decisions made by them have to be called into question.

Actually, now that I've said it jokingly - it does sound on the footage as though Owen's attention was brought to the incident by the Leinster TMO!

Not too dissimilar to the incident that saw Seremaia Bai sent off at the weekend in the AP. Mind also similar to the incident that saw Billy Vunipola cited but cleared a few weeks ago.

Noooooooooooooo.....

I think you'll find the incorrect decisions made by ALL OFFICIALS have to be called into question - the point of my thread which has so far gone ignored!

No I disagree - Bai's was much worse imo - there was clear contact with the head by Bai, which to be honest looked pretty blatant.

Henderson made a marginal contact with his forearm, which looked accidental and reckless at worst.

Not to mention the moving target. When Henderson began his charge, Murrays (not Murray, who was it?) head was down and upper back was the target. Murray then pulled back, bringing his head up for Henderson to make contact. Contact with an arm first and foremost.

He does not make contact with his arm first. If you can see that on the footage - show me a still of conclusive evidence.

Oh Bai's was worse, but for me Henderson's looks between the two incidents I describe. Following the directive from IRB WR I am not surprised it was deemed a red on the field of play.

Another wee dig at Ulster that is irrelevant to the substantive issue here.

Chunky, what is your opinion on my OP? Do you think TMOs and official are held to account for the calls they make?

I wonder if they get fined in some way, or told off, or at lease get told what they need to brush up on. How often do they get continued training for their roles?

I'm sure they are assessed and given feedback. I'd hope so. The players get suspended. The referees should at least get a rap on the knuckles.

Oh Bai's was worse, but for me Henderson's looks between the two incidents I describe. Following the directive from IRB WR I am not surprised it was deemed a red on the field of play.

I think it was dismissed as being a red because of a technicality; he was sent off for leading with the head and they've used extreme close-ups that weren't available to the TMO to establish that he actually makes contact with his arm first, which would tally with the defence presented by the play and Ulster than he intended to make contact with his arm.

Note they don't exonerate him of foul play. I've been consistent in saying it was at least a penalty and I don't think I or any other Ulster fan could argue too much with a yellow card either. But I'm happy as I think a fair conclusion has been reached; he was sent off for leading with his head into another player and I don't think that was what happened.

It would be a bit different if it happened in the first few minutes, but the timing of the card in the 73rd minute means that there wasn't much disadvantage to the ref and TMO getting the colour of the card wrong other than the potential citing. A fair result.

It's in the BBC report on their report

However, the committee concluded that Henderson's initial contact with his opponent "had not in fact been with his head but with his arm".

It said it viewed the incident in close-up, adding that referee Nigel Owens had not been able to do this at the time.

The committee "having viewed the footage and listened to representations by and on behalf of Mr Henderson, decided that the act did not warrant a red card".
"The Disciplinary Committee imposed no sanction on the player, who is free to resume playing immediately."

Nigel Owens was the referee standing 6o yards from the screen. He did not see the incident close up. The TMO did.

The TMO only sees the same angles as everybody else.

So the citing panel have viewed the exact same footage that we have in this thread. (no extreme close ups!!)

And somehow they have been able to determine that his arm hit first and not his head.

What extraordinary individuals they must be. Super powers.

Exactly. Apart from Nigel Owens, because, as the report states he wasn't able to get a close up of the screen, as he was miles away.

Well I thought it looked like the arm in the first instance. The only person who thought it was the head was Owens, who was 60 feet away, and made the red card call.

Looking at it again, the head makes contact a slpit second before the arm

The panel state they were able to look at the incident in "close-up". That is not something the TMO can do. You can interpret the quote that way if you want, but when you're relying on twisting words to make a tenuous case it's probably time to step back and reflect on why you might think your view of a low-quality gif supersedes the view of a neutral panel with access to tools the TMO and the general public do not have.

They say "close up" which was something the match referee was not able to do.

It s totally clear what that means. Using phrases like "extreme close ups" and saying that they saw footage the TMO didn't see is 100% inaccurate.

The outcome is absolutely bullsh1t as the footage clearly shows that his head connects first.

I disagree based only on that footage, which shows nothing of the sort, and am very amused at how much you want to believe the opposite. No doubt this further display of shamelessness will prompt a pithy one-word putdown Cool

Yellow card would have done it so think the panel have got it right.

Ian Davies managed to yellow card four Munster players in one game Very Happy (and Leinster still lost).

Welsh making sure that all Ulster's best players are on the pitch to help Ospreys try and win the league Smile At this rate of going, Munster haven't a hope with their ref.
