By the way, hard hits from the front result in the head snapping forward. The head being hit results in it snapping back.
Disagree, slowing frame to frame you can clearly see that he is hitting the right shoulder of vernon with his helmet, and his shoulder is on the ball, that's almost textbook for dislodging someone from the ball.
KJ fined as well no, another 20k fine that totally is inconsistent.
