Good clean hit. As good as it gets. This is the one situation where the instigator works. Bickell shouldn't have to defend himself for a clean hit and the Hawks get a bonus because of Staubitz being an idiot. On the other hand, if it was a dirty hit and Staubitz comes in, there should be no instigator. If the game could be called that way, it would improve the game. Very hard to do though.
with an understandable
but unnecessary reaction
On the positive side
Staubitz was showing signs
of returning to his previous quality levels
at least until...
the guy who finally gave up trying to tell everyone
"it's pronounced Bick-KELL"...
...tackled him to the ground
I want to be a homer here and say Bickell won, but considering he doesn't throw a punch that W has to go to Staubitz. Bickell puts a big hit on, hes gotta realize someones coming after him...stop hugging and let the fists fly big guy.
