Sound of Football Podcast 323 - Does anyone know the rules?

The contentious incidents at the climax of this weekend's fixture between Liverpool and Spurs highlighted again the problems involved when the laws of the game, or their interpretation, differ from how players, coaches and fans expect them to work.

This week Graham, Terry and Jan discuss the controversy surrounding the incidents in the match and the furore in the press conferences and social media that followed. They ask whether journalists should be subject to censure when their line of questioning is a deliberate attempt to incite a player or coach into saying something that will land them in trouble with the football authorities.

They also reveal the real reason why football can't learn anything from rugby.
