Treat it like the ducking stool .... if you survive the hanging, you're guilty

On that basis you wouldn't know who to hang.

My subsequent post wouldindicate otherwise .... it wouldn't matter surely?

Meldy, I think your sense of humour is too convoluted for our friend

22/10/2012 at 20:37

What are you on about?

One thought on the Kirkland incident. A few people have said he went down easily.

Er hang on, the lout came on and Kirkland looked at him but gave him (misplaced as it turned out) credit that he wasn;t going assault him.  So when he did, Kirkland wasn' ready for it. It may have been an open hand rather than a punch but his head and therefore neck were violently jolted sideways becasue he wasn't ready to resist. He could haev been seriously injured.

Putting you hands on either side of somebody's head and twisting violently will kill them. So lets not blame the victim on this one, it wa a violent assault. Kirkland could have pre-empted it and hit the block but no doubt would then have been villified.

its a bit like the person breaks into your home and you are the one locked up for hitting them!! and i am on the looney left !

I think that footballers during a match are just programmed to go down like a ton of bricks as soon as someone lays a finger on them. Kirkland didn't have time to think so he just did what came naturally to him and tried to get him sent off. Embarrassed by his own over-reaction he stayed on the floor being treated by medics. Of course this should make things no better or no worse for the thug who got what he deserved.
Kirkland is also no better or worse than any other footballer who over-reacts on a football field.
