Dammit! You got there ahead of me, I was just about to write the same thing. I totally agree with you that Pearson handled that awfully. I've seen refs send one guy to the bin, then wait, then send the next guy to the bin. I've long thought Pearson a tool though, not surprised he cocked up.

Calum Clark banned for 32 weeks for breaking another player's arm

What a disgusting, scummy piece of shit he is. Right now, I feel like 32 weeks isn't enough.

England fans, would you ever really want someone like this representing your country?

Danny Cipriani's great try and celebration against the Western Force

Ya, I too hate it when people have fun, it's sickening.

Seriously though, he didn't scream in the face of an opponent or give anyone a shove, he didn't do a messianic swan-dive (Ashton), he didn't hurl the ball at the crowd with an angry face whilst screaming "YEAH! F*CK! YEAH! F*CK!" (like so many players these days), he didn't engage in a soccer-style hugs- and kisses-filled love-in.

He did a little dance (The Dougie) which was funny and inoffensive. He was having fun after being involved a couple of times in a pretty sweet try. He had fun playing sport. How appalling.

Farewell to Shane Williams - Final try and interviews after the game

Great player, seems like a decent bloke too. Enjoy retirement, Shane, although I think you're off too early.

Alesana Tuilagi and Tom Wood red carded following touchline brawl

Ashton, you scummy little shit.

I can't be bothered picking out who deserved cards and of what colour there, I just know that Ashton deserved to get flattened and I hope there's some way of banning him now. Yuck.

Richie McCaw knee on Morgan Parra, Donald kick, Rougerie eye-gouge, and more

I agree with most of this but point 5 goes astray. Kaino pulled at the ball while off his feet and after being warned, that's a penalty. Also, was it not a knock on when he spilled the ball forward? As for the Parra-Read comparison, Parra gets his feet back to the line of the other Frenchmen on that side, so he does get back onside (that, or the penalty was given against all the French on that side but that wasn't my understanding).

I can see how the Parra offside was a tougher call for Joubert from where he was, but the Kaino call was inexcusable, there was no mitigation for his failure to penalise Kaino.

Mark, did you watch the clip linked to above? It literally looks at both sides. Here it is in case you missed it:

All Blacks win the 2011 Rugby World Cup - France challenge the Haka

Sorry Joey, I was a bit ambiguous for your tastes. I'll try and be clearer.

They would not - I repeat, WOULD NOT - have won if the refereeing had even close to fair and impartial. Not only did NZ not deserve to win that final, they should not have won. They were aided and abetted by possibly the most biased refereeing performance I have ever seen. Had it not been for the help they received from the ref, they would not have won that World Cup.

The French will rightly feel extremely aggrieved, and neutrals everywhere will feel short-changed by what they watched. But hey, at least NZ got their World Cup, eh? Who cares that the tournament was cheapened and its credibility tarnished by a bullshit finale? NZ got their World Cup but I respected them more before the tournament.
