We have many cups of many sizes, believe me. Our cups are so full of love, overflowing with love actually. We should not be trading our full cups of love because we need those cups, they should be sending back our cups. We love our cups, they hold things. Bigly things. A lot of things. They are yuuge for holding things. I mean, how am I supposed to know how to drink something without a cup? I asked someone this, I told them, " How do I drink out of this bowl? It's not a cup!" The man told me here is a straw. What kind of man gives another a straw? Straws are for cups, not bowls! So that is why I am instituting an executive order on straws being exclusive to cups, so we can Make Straws Great Again!

Exactly, it was on our own player who backpassed instead of just hoofing it up field.

We can analyze it but at the end of it all, he gets the red and hopefully can look at some sort of reduced suspension.

So is that a straight three game ban for a red card?
One match for Harper for a professional foul, three matches for Bennett for violent conduct. Not sure either can be excused, and Bennett really should know better. Between them they've cost us the match.

Lancashire Evening telegraph is reporting Bennett will receive a four game ban while Harper one game. The game could not have been a worse result for Rovers. One first teamer missing for four games and an extra game to be played. With Chapman out and Conway not fully fit we could really do without losing Bennett. Part of me now wants Mowbray to throw the first choice players at Crewe and see how good they are against 11 players who will be more than eager to finish them off. I would love to know what Smallwood and Caddis said to NG who raised his his arm against Caddis after the game. Of course the referee and his assistant didnt see that one.

Of course, forgot he'd had a red card already. Highlights the stupidity of not being able to appeal against reds for two yellows, given there's a knock on effect.

Ng (pronounced [ŋ̍]; English approximation often /ˈɪŋ/ or /ˈɛŋ/) is a Cantonese, Shanghainese and Hakka transliteration of the Chinese surnames 吳/吴 (Pinyin transliteration for Mandarin equivalent: Wú) and 伍 (Mandarin Wǔ) meaning "five" or "troops". In Hokkien (Taiwanese) and Teochew, Ng corresponds to the surname 黃/黄 (Mandarin Huáng) meaning "yellow"; or to 阮 (Mandarin Ruǎn).

:yeahright:
