In response to Fletcher1's comment:
Respect for McCormick there, but truth be told, I don't even think that was necessary. I don't see anything wrong with hitting a guy after you pull the jersey across his face. That to me is part of the fight. The guy can always go down if he can't see anything and he's getting hit. You should try to win the fight. However, after you win, injure a guy, and guy goes down -- you stop.
At least here, Glass can go down if he's losing. Crombeen was already down, injured, and defenseless. Rinaldo kept going. Bad form.
Whattf, is this bloody british fencing.
The only bad form would be to kick him when he is down, like I said wail away til you are pulled off.
Unconscious, seizures, etc? Just wail away? It's easy to beat your chest about how bad azz you would be, but there's a code of decency because you're playing a sport, not defending yourself from back alley attacker. Punching someone who's lying injured on the ice, in a hockey game, is cowardly. And his teammates would probably knock your teeth out for it.
But yeah, I think pulling the jersey over the head and punching a guy is fair game. Win the fight. Then stop.
