Love Bailey or loathe him (and I know most people loathe him) he certainly gets people talking about him! I'd personally like to see a few more like him in the game, we all like a good pantomime villian to shout at!

The whole saga was a farce. The RFL look stupid from start to finish. Time for Cummings to go.

I can't comment on the Radford/Fielden comparisons as I didn't see the Hudds/Wigan game, unfortunately.

You put a pursuasive argument forward but having seen Bailey launch a headbutt attempt at Hull's smallest player in Sean Long, I would argue, but for good forune in him failing, he most definitely would not have stayed within the bounds of the rules. Likewise, had it not been for it being the last tackle of the RL Cup final, his landing on Wire's smallest player (is there a theme here?) Riley with his forearm would surely have had greater punishment.

The reason he failed was because he tried to do it while hiding behind two team-mates.

A cowardly act from a supposed 'hardman'. Hitting a player who is on all fours while looking down at the ground? Is that what League's hardmen are reduced to? I actually fancy my chances now against Radford.

I havent mentioned Bailey nor was my post about Bailey's actions

How is it irrelevant, was his eye cut before the punches?
