It was pretty hard not hit him considering how close the ball was to RVP.
That's true, but all I think was on his mind was clearing the ball. But when you have people talking about him getting killed by the ball, hard to respond to that seriously, and he was never going to boot him directly in the head.
Exactly what I said yesterday. It's an overreaction after not getting the result he wanted, but a result they deserved.
Although, to be fair, at that distance, if Williams had missed the ball and made contact with RVP's head...that can be dangerous. Paralysis or worse. With a ball, he might have a mild concussion though.
