Mike Riley

The man is a ferking loon......no way was that a sending off.
Its about time they did as Rugby League do go to the video ref...So much is a stake here.
FFS, thats Lampard and Delap from my dream team this weekend :x

Not seen it yet, but the talk online at Sky Sports says he won the ball.

Edited for Sunday mong fingers :oops:
I can't see the youtube footage but, as for Lampard's sending-off, Mike Riley made his decision based on his view of the tackle and the directives issued to referees regarding dealing with such challenges. Remember, he only had one real-time look at the tackle from one angle as opposed to many slow-motion looks from a number of angles. The fact the red card has subsequently been rescinded on appeal - based on Riley's review of the tackle from other angles - reflects that he would have acted differently in hindsight.
