I used to think repealing the instigator rule would be enough to get the league back on the right track, but it's gone way past that.
I agree with everyone's take on jax and bax...guys should have butterflies every night they have to play against these guys....right now every team in the league is getting a paid 82 game scrimmage where this practice squad plays at half speed and "no contact".
But, while we are passing out blame...WHAT THE (Frank) is the deal with Roman Polak? This guy is supposed to have retarded chimp strength, but nobody on earth is afraid to play against him. he has the look, size and strength to be a HUGE force to play against. Instead you have an "ok" defensive d-man.
TJ, Bax and Jax are catching flak for getting away from the gritty game. Polak is escaping the conversation because he's never exhibited it. If anyone on this team needs to put the hurt on someone it's RP.
I know it's one incident, but ask Marian Hossa about Roman Polak putting the hurt on someone.
