The Top 5 Brian O'Driscoll Moments of All Time

I see what you're saying reality, I won't pass much judgement on this move as I really enjoyed it when I saw it the first time. To get technical here, I don't think you could call crossing if technically BOD didn't have ball in hand.. Would have to be obstruction if anything..

Definitely agree there. I suppose that is why we have things like 'Super XV' teams :D

I think it would be fair to say that is a bit like apples and oranges regarding the positions, so it's not going to be an issue (or shouldn't be).

Not to try and argue because I do agree that he is one of the best of all time, but it probably wouldn't be right to compare him to the 'pre-professional' era of rugby players.

Dan has summed that one up, we can only show the future generations the videos at hand and even small snippets don't come close to the great things he produced.

I think my Top BOD moment is definitely this though: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kpLd-Vi8qZA

Ireland and O'Driscoll celebrate 2014 Six Nations victory in Paris

I don't know, I like the perhaps imperfections of the game, the differing in goal areas make players and teams adapt to the pitch they're playing on, home teams have a greater advantage when it comes to the knowledge of the pitch (potentially), teams tactics can adapt accordingly...

As for the NFL posts, a good idea for avoiding this try line/post debacle, but they're so damn ugly in comparison, I don't think I could look at a rugby pitch with the same admiration again....lol...

Stuart Hogg apologises after red card challenge on Dan Biggar

Saying that.. they do say that is the best way to reduce your chances of death and lower limb damage if you're about to be hit by a car...

I'd imagine with a bus it might stop you going under it?

Perhaps ask Cipriani how it went down?

Stuart Hogg apologises after red card challenge on Dan Biggar

I think yourself and I have agree in the past that it is odd that a player who is so blatantly caught on camera perhaps poking another in the eye, would get a reduction for saying 'yes I did it, I'm sorry'....

But I agree here, the guy seems genuinely remorseful, but perhaps we all have to be fully accountable for our actions..

One could argue that Hogg has a pristine disciplinary record up until now, but is that necessarily a reason for leniency? Maybe (and I seriously doubt) this is the beginning of a long trend of violence towards others.

You could also argue that the player 'just lost his head', which again, is that a reason for leniency? When there is another 29 players out there who have managed NOT to lose their heads?

Of course I sound like I'm trying to get Hogg hanged, which I am definitely not trying to do, but so of the arguments I have just stated make the disciplinary panels' decisions look a bit odd when you look deeper into them.
