    Didn't you watch the end of the game when he was running around after his team got the penalty goal.

    Yeah. Just said on 9 news. Gilbert was on the field, shit everywhere.

    Still can't believe Dogs dropped a ten point lead. Choke.

    You realise how bad the potential for injury is?

    This rubbish about 'but he's not injured' had a massive deal with these dangerous throws...

    DON'T TACKLE THE LEGS!

    Fair call. correct ruling, embarrassing the expert commentators don't know the games rules, disgraceful graham wasn't walked for being a gobby scouser, entertaining game in front of a decent crowd. Nice way to spend a Friday afternoon!

    You are mostly correct, Section 13, Law 10 of the Laws of the Game (p 35) states -

    I don't disagree with any of this but a bloke playing his guts out trying to win a game for his team who accidentally gets it all wrong doesn't make him a scumbag.

    Coming 'across' the kicker isn't always possible or ideal. Graham went hard and was penalised for it. I don't disagree with the ruling but the precedent has been set and I do think its harsh that a game can be decided by such a ruling.

    Dogs fans have completely disgraced themselves today. What a moronic bunch.

    Imagine if a grand final or even a major game was decided like that. The lebanese would be lighting up the streets.

    Dogs can only blame themselves. Had every chance to run away with the game

    And Graham's antics were just hilarious. And he literally caused the violence the fans showed to the refs with his disrespectful display

    Graham walks a fine line but he was trying to charge to ball down about 2m off the ground. Don't think Reynolds has legs that long.

    Not for a second do I think Graham meant it but coming into contact with the supporting leg always carries risk.

    Like many spear tackles don't cause injuries, that doesn't mean they're not dangerous.

    Charging players just need to go at the kicker from a slight angle so their body follows through without hitting the supporting leg.

    You can charge down...just don't hit the legs. Go for the midrift.

    Dogs disgracing the game again.

    Maybe dock them competition points for failing to control their players and fans.

    An ugly look
