I'm not hanging anyone. Yes, Hayden had a fraction of a second to make a call and he did that and committed to it. Once he made the decision he went hard and his execution was flawless, but it was still IMHO the wrong decision. It caused us to completely lose our defensive structure. It would be a good coaching opportunity about defensive structure, shape, and trusting teammates.Again, there is so many things that players get hung on around here, a young kid making the line ball call to make contact isnt one of them. Its so easy from the cheap seats, if hayden did this or did that, its not chess. Out of interest, how many times have you watched it? Maybe a couple times or more? Hayden saw it once and made the decision to go. Yep, it happens, thats the nature of game and people round here forget that sometimes. Things will happen, goals will be kicked.
I am fine having a minority opinion on this but have seen no reason to change it. It is an example of my view of the bias on this board towards the rough and tough stuff. It would be a pretty boring board if there was one comment on every issue expressing an opinion and every other poster agreeing.
