Brian Gavin: 'Referee Handbook can help players and public too'

Brian Gavin: 'Referee Handbook can help players and public too'

By John Harrington

2016 All-Ireland Hurling Final referee, Brian Gavin, believes the newly published Referee Handbook will be a major help to match officials.

The aim of the Referee Handbook is to assist Referees by giving them an outline and understanding of the main areas of refereeing and is designed to explain and simplify the Playing Rules with a focus on practical application.

And Gavin thinks it will be a valuable resource not just for referees, but for players too.

I would have experienced it in Offaly, even having rules tests for referees and you would be frightened by the results, says Gavin.

When someone sees something with a pen and paper, they get a little bit mixed up but this just clears the pathway, the education is so black and white in it.

It is something I approached Pat Doherty National Match Officials Manager in the last few months about, that I would try to bring something like this to transition year students, to developmental squads and to minors, to ensure there is a better understanding of the rules of GAA.

And it will definitely help minor squads, because if you deliver this to developmental teams and minor teams, these are the lads that are interested in playing hurling and football, these are the lads of the future, they need a better understanding and a better pathway for referees and for rules, and I believe that this is just another stepping-stone for progress within the GAA.

One of occupational hazards of being a referee is that many of the supporters watching the match are prone to vocally disagreeing with some of the decisions made by the match official.

Gavin believes this is partly down to the fact that the public arent fully briefed on the rules of the game, and believe that the Referees Handbook could be a helpful resource for them as well.

Even though there are media launches every time there is a rule change, people still don't seem to grasp it, he says. And it is amazing being at football matches, I was at the All-Ireland final replay this year, and you hear people around you shouting out for black cards and you are just wondering what planet they are on.

The understanding is not out there with the general public and this will definitely help and again, it is another proper procedure going forward to help with the understanding of the rules.

There is a terrible lack of understanding of the rules, even from players, would you believe, and managers, at times. If everyone gets this handbook and goes through it, it is a big help.

The lack of knowledge out there from some players but mostly supporters, well it is frightening when I go to a match and am sitting down in the stand, and I hear these shouts.

It is disappointing because you would think that people would have a better understanding of rules and they just don't.
