Default Stupidity or defending your team mate?

Expanding on a thought I picked up on another thread. Situation, somebody really goes across the line and bops our player out of bounds, or fingers through the mask into the eyes, stomps a hand,etc. Should Texans retaliate in defense of their team mate even if the penalty really hurts the Texans? We've seen this recently in other sports too. I am leaning to the defend my guy, but do not want to hurt the chances of a win either. Your opinion?

I would say, get revenge, when the defense takes the field, maybe a blindside hit to WR who isn't getting the ball, send a message, but then again. I am a jerk.:brickwall

It's almost a street thing...you don't want to let your people get bullied...so you fight back. I know I'd draw some flags, but I'm wired like that.

Yeah, I'm a big fan of waiting until later in the game. Take it out on someone else when the referee is looking the other way.

In baseball, when a pitcher intentionally hits a player, I want the next guy up to let the bat fly right at the pitcher. Whoops, my hands were a mite slippery. Get the message?

You can have the designated "don't get a flag" guy.

You see your teammate get uneccesarry roughed. You then retaliate, but right before you do you get pulled back by another teammate who says "Don't get a flag!!!"

Does this change if you are way ahead or way behind in the score?

It's a fine line, and depends on the situation.

For instance, in a really close game, I'd say that players need to have self-control in order to avoid any really costly penalties. There will always be another game, and these dudes have long memories.

On the other hand, if the game is a blowout either way, then by all means, jack him up and teach a lesson.

Unless, of course, it's a really flagrant foul. If the refs are blind, then justice should be served accordingly.

I say no. You know what they did, they do as well, and probably everyone who was watching the game as well. Id rather keep my head held high with respect for myself and my team rather than bring myself down to their level.

I thinking defending your teammate is acceptible...penalty or not. So long as it is in the heat of the moment and you don't totally lose your cool like Kyle Turley or Bill Romanowski. Some pushing and shoving is enough to make your point. For example, I love to see an offensive lineman defend his QB. I find that acceptable. However, if you are talking about doing what they do in baseball where you hit each other's players with a pitch. That is unneccessary.

Man, I really want to agree with you, but...I think it is sort of like dealing with a bully...sometimes, you just have to light them up. In the Marines, after pt training, usually 3-4 of us would go to gym for a pick up BB game. Now most of us were not much good but loved to play. One game we're getting slaughtered and this one guy kept elbowing my noggin until I looked like a many horned rhino. He was at least 6 inches taller and 40 pounds heavier than me. I gave my 'mates a heads up & next time down the court, as he went up for a jump shot and the left elbow came down, I remained feet on court and delivered a fist to his ahem..jewels. His team mates snickered and made comments like "that boy got even." I waited for him to get up and kick the dog.. out of me. He grumbled and allowed himself to be lead off court. We left the gym immediately.

Wait for a quarter (if you can) rhen let someone have it when it is least expected after all that is kind of how it likely happened to you right?

I think it depends on if the officials have control of the game.

IMO if the officials can't handle it or call it, you gotta take care of your teammates. They are going to have to pay for it, just give the officials first crack to take care of it, otherwise it is going to keep on occurring.

Be the bigger man and turn the other cheek. Get a whole bunch of players to go up to the player and offer a hug. Mind games, eh?

That's the way you do it. That way nobody knows it was for earlier in the game. That way you hopefully don't get ejected and/or suspended like you probably would if you retaliated right away.
