It all depends on what level we're talking about. A flat tire, and there's a chance that the wheel will dig into the runway, and spin them, straining the strut, and dropping them on the wing (notice I say chance, that's worst case scenario). If the gear wouldn't come down, and they try to land with one main down, and one retracted, there's a chance (again worst case scenario) the wing digs in, and they cartwheel. Come in with gear up, and there's a chance they hit the tail and that causes the nose to slam down, breaking the back or doing more damage.
All I've heard on this one is there was a problem with the right main, not the level of what the problem was.
