Suffering from the same rule as I did in the past. When a referee makes a statement in his report it cannot be overturned as it is taken to be the absolute truth under GAA rule book. So, if anything is in the referee's report then you have no chance of having it successfully appealed. I was reported for calling the referee a cheat while on the sideline but this was untrue, I simply said to him after the game, 'that was a disgrace'. I also entered the field twice to hand back footballs to the umpire to keep the game going and stood talking to him for about a minute. The upshot was that the rule that the referee's report is always right was invoked, I eventually ended up with a 48 week ban which was fed to Winker Watson to report on the BBC news and mentioned by Sidebottom during his match commentary.
They tried playing him at half back in the AFL which was stupid.
Bernard Brogan? Really? Run this poll in 10 years and Brogan wouldn't even be mentioned, never mind make the top 25. Connolly either.
I would agree with your opinion on Brogan - Charlie Redmond or Dessie Farrell in their day were as good as Brogan, and I don't think they were even mentioned in this poll/thread.
Bernard Brogan at his peak was at different level to the likes Hill 16 favorites Redmond and Farrell. A truly top forward for me is one that looks like he is totally marked out of the game but is still is able to produce or create a match winning score and that was Brogan at his best.
Brogan is a great finisher, and relies on supply and his supporting players. Farrell and Redmond had to do a lot more work with a lesser team around them to get their scores, that is why I think they were as good as him. Put Brogan on the current Down/Meath/Armagh team and how do you think he would fare?
