Precisely. My coaches always taught me in High School to keep your head on a swivel and to play up and until the whistle. The players that Ward hits deserve it for standing around on the field completely oblivious of what's going on. This is not flag football or two hand touch, it's the NFL. To make it even more sad the guys that Ward is hitting usually have quite a bit of size and weight on him. He is picking on people bigger than him. That's balls right there.
