I don't really have an issue with the sending off, if you punch a bloke several times you are asking for a red card, even a bloke as deserving as Bailey of being punched. The problem for me is that Ian Smith didn't seem to think elbowing an opponent in the head three times is also a sending off offence. Two red cards would have been about right.

Having said all that, the better side lost.
And when they found our shadows
Grouped around the TV sets
They ran down every lead
They repeated every test
They checked out all the data on their lists
And then the alien anthropologists
Admitted they were still perplexed
But on eliminating every other reason
For our sad demise
They logged the only explanation left
This species has amused itself to death
No tears to cry no feelings left
This species has amused itself to death

Leeds v Wigan - two big names.
Saints v Wire - exciting tie and a real rivalry.
Hull v Hull KR - Dream tie for the play-offs.
Hudds v Crusaders - Easiest possible game for the expansion team finishing eighth.

I bet these are the ties that the RFL would have picked if they were in a position to engineer them.


edit............leeds and saints, two big names of the modern era.....Wigan big name from the past now improving after a bleak 14 years....will agree with the rest of the post tongue.gif tongue.gif tongue.gif happy.gif happy.gif happy.gif

So it was now Hull's turn to suffer at the hands of the "special reletionship." The decision to send off Radford was probably the worst call I have seen this season - an utter disgrace and yet again a Leeds player gets away scott free with foul play whilst an opponent suffers disproportionately - a situation that has come to be the signature of this season. A sin bin for both players would have been sufficient.

The relationship between the Leeds club, the RFL and its Carnegie sponsored officials is far too close, unhealthily so in fact and steps should be taken to put a greater distance between the individuals concerned with some at the RFL being removed from their positions with immediate effect.

Summat else to mention about yesterday's game.

Hull FC were down to 12 players for around 70 minutes of the match, clearly had tired legs all over the park in the second half, and Jordan Turner never left the subs bench for the entire game. Now, unless there's a problem with the lad that we don't know about, the decision not to use one of our subs beggars belief.

Bravo Richard Agar.

I aren't too fussed about the red card. It could have been a yellow, but you can justify a red just as easily.

What I am p*ssed about is that Bailey got away with everything. No punishment. He was allowed to elbow someone four times in the head, then allowed to attempt to butt Sean Long (which the referee was in full view of, and even blew the whistle after seeing), then allowed to carry on like an indisciplined footballer when the ref was controlling the situation. He didn't even get a talking to. It's a disgrace.

What Radford did was worse, but he got his punishment. Bailey behaved like a moronic coward and got away with it. That's the disgrace.
