If they were doing their jobs properly both of them would have been tossed. I don't blame ODB fom defending himself though. Norman led the game off by body slamming him and nothing was done.
Agreed, but also IMO both coaches should have had those guys on the bench when it hit 2 levels beyond chippy. That's the way it would have gone in the old days, give them a chance to get their head straight and realize they are hurting their teams if they don't get self control. I guess Rivera could have been thinking both gone would be a net positive for the Panthers but who knows.
