Jebb Sinclair controversially red carded for 'leading with the elbow'

I think you're confusing slow motion with real time. Is that you, Jonathan Pierce?

Dunedin Streaker gets Smashed by Security Guard Number Eight

Over the top, but kinda funny considering he wasn't hurt badly, but hopefully the next guy won't get nailed quite SO hard. Cracking hit though.

"At least it only cost his team a few minutes with a man disadvantage."

Yep. An turned over the penalty that they'd be awarded in a kickable position.

No chance. I'm always called out for being on the soft side of the interpretation of the laws, but this was an absolutely bullshit call. There is no way he can be pinged for this. 'Leading with the elbow' is designed to stop people raising their elbow, pointing it outwards, and - you know - leading with it.

Pretty hard to lead with your elbow when it's tucked into your body like that. The Scotsman put his head where the elbow was, not the other way around.

RD, I don't have this problem using the same browser (Chrome) on other websites with embedded Youtube videos. This is literally the only website where I've experienced the problem. Happy enough, but I don't know why it's only affecting RD.

New Zealand snatch victory in the dying minutes after strong England showing

Unfortunately that selection is probably Julian Savea, but never mind.

Hmmm... my inner nerd has got distracted by the talk of standards and averages. You make a good point IRB_ref.

If we're going to be ultra picky, I'd question DrG's use of the semi-colon, if only because he and I haven't argued for a while and it's all too amicable.

I would still say that Owens is a bloody good ref, if not even the best, but of course he is going to make mistakes. I can live with that. Anyone good enough to learn to referee has a lot of credit in the bank as far as I am concerned. The game wouldn't function without referees like yourself, IRB_ref, so thank you.
