    I agree that there are still some people that are adamant that winning the ball means its a fair challenge, but in my experience there...

    The thing that I'm surprised no-one brought up is the late challenge a few minutes earlier from him that easily deserved a yellow card...

    I'm 100% behind the idea that the punishment should fit the crime. But your obsession with avoiding any slight possibility you might...

    GraemeS replied to the thread TOT V NEW (not another one).
    Interestingly, what we're not doing is arguing about the referee. For better or worse, the majority of pundits and fans seem to be...

    The last sentence wasn't really called for. @socal lurker is a very reasonable poster on multiple forums, and his request for...

    I still don't see enough violence for violent conduct. It was certainly a risky challenge, but I don't think any top level referee...

    Fair enough, apologies if I misread your previous post. That's interesting that you read it that way - my interpretation of rugby's...

    Take any image or video away. Start with a clear head. Now I tell you someone struck me in the face with a clinched fist. What is the...

    There's a difference between "saying it's OK" and where I stand. I'm perfectly happy with the yellow - it's careless and inattentive...
