Nothing brushed under the carpet but hardly a long line of career ending violence,which is something you claim the game is full of.Rugby League is a contact sport,incidents happen but not as many as you seem to believe.Once again,try listening to people who have far more experience within the sport.
Is that a clear brush under the carpet if ever there was one Terry? lol
If I find examples of 10 needless career affectling tackles/incidents made in the SL this year, will you eat your words and admit that more needs to be done to reduce it?
I know of two incidents already which grabbed the head-lines for the wrong reasons:-
1) KS head-butt
2) Hock tackling referree could have had serious consequences also.
Would you say Zidanes head butt was more violent than Sinfields? Or the Suarez biting incidents.It would appear soccer is far more violent than Rugby League,wouldn't you agree?
