Katman I see where you're coming from with McCaw but (guessing from your avatar) as a South African, rugby probably doesn't have such a hold over the nation. In New Zealand rugby is our livelihood, our religion. We see Richie McCaw as a leader and an incredibly well natured Kiwi. So when we see him taking cheap shots, we will have his back like hes our own blood. But respect to your argument all the same.
