    First impressions was he jumped to avoid a crunching tackle, if he didn't then I believe there would have been a penalty

    If that's the case, the player should have been brave and taken the foul, rather than jumping out of the way like a big pussy

    Only saw on SSN but as we know a wreck less tackle can end a career, ask barker. Not saying its same type of tackle yesterday, but sometimes player will jump to avoid a crunching tackle.... Pussy or not,

    Like I said I thought he jumped to avoid tackle

    In my opinion you don't see leg breaking tackles coming, anybody who says that they jumped out of the way of a dangerous tackle is either a liar, a big girls blouse or more likely both.

    One of the old truisms when I was learning to play football was, "if you go into a tackle half hearted, you're more likely to get injured". These days 'dangling a leg' is common place, normally followed by a squeal, a theatrical drop to the ground and three rolls. 

    The cheats have won, because nobody knows what is and what isn't a tackle, especially referees, and fans are more than willing to swallow the b*llsh*t trotted out to excuse this behaviour

    It was very interesting to hear Ian Wright's comments on MOTD - he pointed out that if theplayer had tried to leapfrog the tackle, he could have got to the bye-line and either been in on goal or able to put the ball into the box. Instead players are only interested in getting the slightest of touches and going down to get the peno.

    I didn't think pundits were allowed to say things like that. Well done Wrighty!

    Anybody who wants to know about bravery as well as risk and reward check out Nathan Dyers winning goal for Leicestet today. 

    He won the game with a header knowing full well he was going to be clatteted by an extremely reckless challenge by Brad Guzan. If he'd backed out and let Guzan get there first, whilst saying that he was trying to avoid injury, would we all applaud his common sense approach?

    I know which attitude I prefer.

    Football is a contact sport. Sometimes legal contact can be as hard or even harder than the illegal kind. Players have to learn to take it.

    Not arguing its a contact sport or hard tackling band, my initial point was it looked like he avoided being taken out by the player by jumping.
    Yes physical sport but also a tackle CAN end a career.

    Modern day players cant take tackles kik in 70 with Norman hunter type tackles
