Torres and Size
 
Wrap your head around this: if our players were small and weak, the other team would constantly dominate us with their physical play.

If we're strong and tough, we get penalized for dominating the other team with our physical play.


This was mentioned somewhere and I'm beginning to agree. Players can go horseback riding on Laraque and won't be called because of Laraques size. Torres has been penalized 3 times this season because of his size. Another question is why did Torres only play 4:15 in tonight's game. Did he get injured?

I can't agree, this is clearly equal throughout the league, not team by team, but player by player.
