Lucky none of that ever happened.
The rule was changed after the hit LITP, which you are an experienced enough student of the game to know. It is not as if the Commmissioner put out a memo the week before the game saying that activity specifically was prohibited after Kimo had been caught doing the same thing in Green Bay. Of course I suppose Kimo could then have said his interpretation of the rule was simply different from that of the league office and apologized to the Steelers organization and their fans (but not to Palmer)
But I recognize the Pats and their fans own the moral high ground when it comes to any issue concerning fair play within both the letter and spirit of the rules.
