Brian Gavin: Ex-players' scrutiny puts unnecessary pressure on referees
I remember looking down at the grass as it started to turn red. I'd been waiting six years for my chance in a senior All-Ireland hurling final but now I was in a state of confusion. The last thing I'd remembered happening was Bonner Maher running up the line with the ball, and I was trying to get close to the action because I thought he'd get caught up in traffic. I blew for a free, and then a shemozzle kicked off, and I went in to pull lads away from each other. Next thing I got a bang out of nowhere, and I can picture now the flabbergasted look on Brian Hogan's face.
