Teams that focus on revenge distract themselves from the main objective, which is to win.
The best revenge is to win the game.
Well said BO (jeez that just doesn't look right does it)--the guy retaliating no matter how justified always gets the flag. That said, Peek just needs to curb his enthusiasm to the point to not draw the flag. Emotion is good from 1-3 players on each side of the ball. Peek needs to keep his emotion within the whistles or in the huddle. If he can do that he may develop into a good+ LB and a D leader--if not, he is trade bait.
