I would have no problem if they called 2 for interference, charging, or whatever there, but 5 for intent to injure is a pure joke and only underscores how terrible the officiating has been this season. The officials reacted to the fact that Brule was hurt, not the actual play the led to the injury.
I think it was the right call. I don't like that they used the replay to make it.
