    Yeah, we are on the same page. In fact, as the law reads, if people view that as a red then so can be a clash of heads that causes injury. Simple thing, that we agree om, is that that was not a red.

    I know it was a long time ago but suprised noone mentioned Bert Trautmann. His reputation and respect with fans who never saw him play is based on him playing with a broken neck.

    Trautmann entered football folklore with his performance in the 1956 FA (Football Association) Cup Final. With 17 minutes of the match remaining Trautmann suffered a serious injury after diving at the feet of Birmingham City's Peter Murphy. Despite his injury he continued to play, making crucial saves to preserve his team's 31 lead. His neck was noticeably crooked as he collected his winner's medal; three days later an X-ray revealed it to be broken.

    And in my own tough-guy story, I broke my hand in a game a couple of years ago and kept playing for another half hour.
    Yeah, I've heard similar stories. I've played on after getting two black eyes and most people often play on after taking all of the skin of their knees, it's the done thing.

    Ince v Italy in 98:



    One wonders what one of the oppo would've done with similar bloodloss.

    Credit also to Joe Worsley. Had 19 stone of Jason Leonard stamping on (and tearing) his scrotum, but played the next game. From The Guardian.

    - As featured in The Independent.

    "The committee discussed the issue of illegal bowling actions, and believed that there are a number of bowlers currently employing suspect actions in international cricket, and that the ICC's reporting and testing procedures are not adequately scrutinising these bowlers."
    - Even the ICC's own official press release thinks things must change

    This one's my favourite, about All Black Wayne Shelford

    Playing only his second Test for the All Blacks against a physically intimidating French side, Shelford found himself at the bottom of a rather aggressive ruck on 20 minutes.

    An errant Les Bleus stud found its way to his groin, where it somehow managed to tear his scrotum, leaving one testicle hanging out.

    This alone would leave most men screaming in agony and heading for the nearest hospital. But not Shelford.

    He calmly instructed the physio to stitch him up.

    The French public were gobsmacked as an over-eager pitchside cameraman filmed the stomach-turning surgery, and even more so when Shelford returned to the field and carried on playing.
