Yep people go to jail for assaulting strangers who have done nothing to them. Other people get no punishment at all after being hit with a projectile and then challenged by the person who threw it.
Here's the simple facts one more time...
Quentin shouldn't have charged.
Greinke shouldn't have challenged him to charge.
Greinke shouldn't have led with his shoulder.
You have turned those facts into another crusade...
Quentin shouldn't have charged. It ends at that. That was the violent act, and the only one.
Greinke didn't challenge him to charge. There wasn't enough time for that. Saying "what" in any way isn't saying "come attack me". And Quentin didn't hear it anyway, so it's completely inconsequential.
Shouldn't have led with his shoulder? Right...Just like you shouldn't lead with your face when someone punches you. He was being attacked. You react how you react to lessen the blow.
