See if you like it if some one runs up and shoves an elbow into your head and see if you don't think there was anything wrong with it.
The horizontal rule is probably a good thing. I'm not saying that coz it happened to Ravs, but I've seen it happen to plenty of players and I always cringe when they go up...coz you don't know what could happen after that. Sometimes it's nothing but other times it can be dangerous.
And Dmm, you trying to call me and a few others 'softies' are ya? LOL. I think big honest hits are fine. Mingy stupid ones like Patten's are just plain not on. But again that's how I see it, perhaps you don't. All good
