So we’ve all been there, your playing a pick up game with friends, and someone randomly swats the ball down to stop that fast guy from going round them again. So as I sat down yesterday, sipping my coffee and taking in the scenes of this most sacred of sporting activities, through the lens of my computer monitor, you can imagine my surprise when I saw Wigan’s Figureoa doing something similar. And, like the magnificent styled Italian on the side line, I spilt my coffee when I saw he got off with you a yellow for this offense.
So in sum, no matter the level of play, there’s always someone looking to subvert the rules, and while we can bring back class to the match by banning him for 3 games, no one will ever bring back my coffee.
