Is the thigh not a part of the leg?
I said there weren't going to be a bunch of people going for his waist.
My quote was accurate.
And I watched the Harrison hit. He didn't have to hit that wr like that. The guy didn't even see him. Not what I'd call a good, clean hit. Looked like he was trying to injure the guy.
