I was watching the Monday night football game between the Buffalo Bills and Cleveland Browns, and I became slightly disturbed by something. It was in the beginning of the third quarter and the Browns’ underused running back Jerome Harrison took a handoff to the outside of the right tackle for nine yards, and when it appeared he was giving up and had half a foot out of bounds Buffalo linebacker Kawika Mitchell came into the picture and shoved Harrison, knocking him off balance and flying face first into the Bills’ bench. The play was rightfully flagged. Even if Harrison was not all the way out of bounds at the time of the hit, the player was clearly going to be out of bounds at the same spot under his own will. The hit is not necessarily what upset me the most, it’s what took place moments after the hit. . . .
