“Disgraceful” – How social media reacted to controversial red card

It won’t have escaped your notice that Josh Griffin was shown a red card in yesterday’s clash between Hull FC and St Helens.

It was a strange situation with the halftime hooter sounding, all 26 players heading for the changing rooms, Griffin approached referee Chris Kendall. He said something to receive a yellow card before going on and receiving a red card.

A huge talking point that has divided opinion.

One fan noted that if dissent is tolerated at the top level then it will filter down to the lower levels thus Kendall was vindicated in his decision.

Meanwhile, one fan pointed out that Griffin must have said something serious to receive the red card.

However, other supporters disagreed claiming that Griffin merely expressed his frustration at the situation to receive the red card.

An interesting point was made saying that they disagreed with Griffin’s behaviour but felt the card system was misused.

Meanwhile, others wanted to know what was said between the yellow and the red cards to receive the upgrade.

That said, one supporter branded it as “a great decision.”

St Helens fans had their say claiming they would have blamed Josh Griffin rather than the official.

However, it was argued that it was soft by Hull fans and not necessary.

A balanced opinion came from a Keighley Cougars fan who said it wasn’t the best decision but that Griffin was at fault.
