Is this for real? Did you ever have the privilege to watch Les Boyd, Kevin Tamati, Kelvin Skerrett, Brendon Tuuta, Jim Mills, Kurt Sorensen, Terry Newton, Barrie McDermott et al take the field? Geez, talk about overreaction. This thread is going pretty much to type.
different era and nothing to do with King Kevs red card, what you quote would mean apart from Hock no one would be banned. If he has committed an offence within a graded area he should get the lower end because of the record and his get out of jail card can be used if possible. If the semi was not round the corner it would not raise as big a reaction.
