Dante Wesley Absolutely Destroys Clifton Smith
First thing's first: I'm not a fan of football. To me it's a pointless game that, with the exception of the quarterback, requires very little skill. The players run a few feet, fall down on top of each other and then get back up to do it all over again. Simply put it's not my cup of tea.
With that being said I know a nasty cheap shot when I see one, and this is definitely one of those times.
What I'd like to know is where the hell were Smith's teammates? If this was another sport -- say, hockey for instance -- Wesley wouldn't have made it to the locker room without the help of a few smelling salts. Sure, Smith's teammates looked like they wanted to do something, but the fact of the matter remains that they didn't.
Some are inevitably going to say that this hit was a case of poor timing or just a mistake made by a player intent on doing his job. I say this is nothing short of a dirty hit made by a jackass with absolutely no regard for the safety or well being of the other players around him.
Head shots are nothing to fuck around with.
