Please note I stressed potential.

Kind of reminds me of a story of a kid in Cincinnati who reached into his pocket to get his ID, but someone thought he was going for a gun- and shot him. Hey- it could have been a gun.

The players might have chosen to strike and yet they might not have. We will never know. The League made it's choice, and I'll not pretend this was forced upon them.

I personally believe it was a tactic to gain leverage.
And by most first-hand accounts, Hamilton wasted his shot. And Burr hit him anyway. Some say on purpose, some say in self-defense.

So it appears we're in agreement here Cannoli.
