Sarah O'Donovan says she's slightly disappointed that the black card implementation in hurling and camogie has been rejected.
The former Dublin and Cork inter-county player says she was excited about the debate regarding the possible introduction of the black card.
The two-time All-Ireland winner joined the Saturday Panel to look back at the week's major talking points.
"I was very energised about the black card debate, as a forward I was sick to my teeth of the full-back pulling me down, and then the ref deciding that the full-back is allowed to be physical.
O'Donovan says she wasn't sure it would be the right move for the game but believes it could have helped with the games being refereed with more consistency.
"I was on the fence if I wanted a black card or not wanting a black card.
"About 89% of the players have come out and said they didn't want black card. So, I was obviously in the minority,' added O'Donovan.
The former Dublin and Cork player referenced her experiences on the field but also admitted that she would want her defensive teammates to be as tough as possible on the opposition.
"I would want my full-back to be a tough as she could when I'm up at the other end. So, you've to kind of measure it that way."
She says the introduction of the card may have helped change the inconsistent stop-start nature in many games.
O'Donovan thinks changes may be the only way to reach a level of consistency required to let the game flow.
"I suppose what I'm looking for is consistency in refereeing, and they thought the black card would allow consistency because I don't think there is consistency."
