You guys are making way too big an issue out of that play. Firstly, the hit was near simultaneous to the whistle. Perhaps a bit after but you see hits like that every single game. And it wasn't from behind.
Nor did Avery really have a chance go with Smith. Immediately after the hit he was chased down by another Oiler (and then the rest) and then after Smith got up, he was already engaged. The situation didn't allow Avery the chance to have a clean bout with Smith. No disrespect to Smith but if Avery is willing to drop his gloves and square off with Jovonovski, I very much doubt he is intimidated at the prospect of fighting Smith.
