Sorry, but I do not agree that this was more intentional than many of the other highsticks we have seen.

But for the sake of avoiding an argument, lets say he did intend to hit him in the leg. That is now his intent and he should be reprimanded as such. Not the bad luck of his stick hitting the Americans and catching his cheek.

This getting 4 is a joke. I would even be ok with 1, since it did get his face and it "looks" bad, but the lack of consistency is just mind boggling and causes frustration for many.
