    Can anyone explain to me why an arrest warrant wasn't sworn out for him? Because while there is an exception to assault for "course of the game" type actions, despite those lunatic quotes above this is not an assumed risk when you sign up to play football.

    What a bizarre story...you always hear the stories about what happens on the bottom of the pile...hair pulling, eye poking...spitting...but this is just another level of odd. It didn't look like he was trying to hurt him...or doing something for a joke...it truly looked like he groped him. Which.....is just odd.

    I thought the player had to on his feet or airborne for the defender to grab a ball.

    In ancient Greece, the sweat, etc, of athletes had medicinal value.

    He should be suspended for a few games at the very least.

    I know you're joking right. In real time yiu could barely notice anything. The Osu player didn't exactly go ballistic.

    Extremely stupid and poor taste but I don't even thinks it warrants a suspension. Didn't look like an attempt to injure like an eye poke.

    1. I don't mean why didn't it happen in real time. I mean why didn't it happen when a police detective was watching Sportscenter that night.

    2. Look -- I am not suggesting that Wilkins should have to do time for this ((assuming he doesn't have a history of priors). But you can't walk up to someone on the street or in a bar and just grab their privates without expecting you have an assault charge coming, and there was nothing in the context of the football game that would justify not sending the young man a serious message.

    I'll ask you this -- what is the damage to society of a whole country watching this for 48 hours in slow motion and seeing that law enforcement tolerates it? If we tolerate that caught on camera, how do you teach young men that it's not legal to grab a woman's privates at a bar or a frat party?

    This referee wouldn't have stood for it. He calls 'em likes he sees 'em. I promise you you have never seen a call like this made before.
