I've always assumed we don't start a huge scrum with teams that get in Peks' face because we're afraid of going on the PK for "roughing", although no one ever gets called when they start stuff with us. And also it's a double standard to let teams jump all over one of our guys then call a penalty if we "retaliate", or basically, stick up for him.
