This past week, the powers that be in football (that's soccer to the rest of you) put forward the idea that players should be made to shake hands after every game. Apparently, this could resolve the issues of racism, cheating and violence that blight the sport.

Well, I just finished watching France and Scotland duke it out on the rugby field in the 6 nations tournament. It was close. It was rough. It looked painful. But you know what? They all shook hands at the end (I even spotted a couple of hugs, which may be a bit much). And you know what else? No one made them do it.

And that's all I have to say about that.

Oh, and, allez les Bleus.
