"Perhaps it would be better that future criticism of sports be made on the narrow basis of what is being discussed, without reference to other sports, unless those sports offer a solution to the problem in hand." - Brian 'Pigface' Moore
"What happens in rugby union? A player takes the ball, moves forward a little and gets tackled. A whole load of players then roll about on the ground. Pheep! The referee gives a penalty." - Simon Barnes

Aye, watched it myself. Very emotional at times, as you might expect.
Just watched the Fabrice Muamba episode. Well worth watching a repeat or on ITV player.
Remarkable bit for me was the consultant cardiologist who just happened to be in the crowd, who's speciality was restarting hearts that have stopped, and who eventually managed to pursuade the stewards to allow him on the pitch to help.
And he was only there because a relative couldn't attend.
I've not got a religious bone in my body but sometimes you just think some things were meant to happen.
"I don't see what all the fuss is about. I mean, it's only fair after last year isn't it? Look Neil, just for you, I've put my best Rovers' tie on today in the hope it'll go some way to make up for it. Oh, by the way, Jon sends his regards."
