KC, I should have said that I absolutely love the competitiveness, indeed the footy this year has been wonderful. What I can't condone is last night's OTT throat grabbing and people coming to blows. I have quite willingly put up with being kicked form pillar to post every other week, indeed it's great and I think a few of us have improved leaps and bounds because of facing players of a higher calibre - but there's just no need for active encouraging of people to hurt each other - as was the case yesterday. That's what's galled me more than the actual physicality. If I had indeed done as Nick said and tried to hurt him, what would he have done back?

Bring on competitive footy and hard tackling, but when it threatens to get nasty ... that's just not cricket!
