Wasnt Bromwich on top of Sammy? Its got nothing to do with what Sam did, or that running at a player is part and parcel of the game, it was how they charged him thats the issue. Them saying that Thiaday deliberately set out to cause Bromwich " discomfort " was just a dumb thing to say. If any player has an injury, and another player looks to target that injury, they are looking to cause him discomfort. They never once argued it wasnt part of the game. There is the issue. They are only arguing its against the spirit of the game if somebody deliberately looks to cause discomfort.Running into a guy and making contact with a guys shoulder is part of the game . Bending peoples fingers when they are already on the ground being held down is a completely different thing .
