Hat tip to @77 who raised this in the Tommy Smith thread. Is any player thought of as hard nothing more than dirty? I'd say they are. Even someone as unappealing in his playing days as Vinnie Jones could take it. McMahon stud-stabbed him in the shin in revenge for the 88 Cup final reducer and Jones wouldn't show pain. John Barnes was up close when Josimar launched over the ball to assault Stuart Pearce and it was Josimar who was hurt. So are there any 'hard' ones out there who were nothing more than dirty?
