What Bertucci did was obviously inappropriate.
Not taking a "side", what I was trying to do with my post was make a (humorous) comment about the likely reaction of the Hawkeye fans the next time they come into contact with Mr. Bertucci.
Away from the boards for a day, AND NICKY BERTUCCI KNEES METCALF IN THE FACE? I am taking Nicky's side on this (not that there is a side to be taken) because Nicky went to the best high school on the planet. (Mine, of course. Go Friars!)
Sorry but that was a pretty vicious knee which had no intent other than hurting Brent and had no relevance to helping him get off his back.
Bertucci could have done a better job of hiding that...throw an arm up at the same time or something and kick the other leg too, lol
Even as blurry as it was (& it was wayyyyy blurry) you could clearly tell Bertucci intended to do it.
Now that Bertucci is famous...he should get a likeness of Metcalf's face tatooed on that knee (with black eyes and stiches of course).
He should have been DQ'd and he was. End of story.
