Other matches w/e of Oct 6th

Interesting decision in the spurs game, a straight red for a very cynical challenge, no attempt whatsoever to go for the ball, trouble is the challenge was a good 40 yards from goal with a covering defender, thus not a clear goal scoring opportunity.

For me, I think that the blatent nature of the challenge warranted the red, however I am not sure that the laws of the game really cover that, was it cyclical, definitely, was it reckless, certainly, but was it a dangerous challenge warranting a straight red, probably not.

Thoughts on a postcard
