The difference is that when the catcher is blocking the plate a runner can run into home. Trying to make a tag on home plate. You don't see players running to the plate and SLAPPING the Catchers' mitt. They just truck over fools.
AROD was obviously running with his fists closed then opened his hand and SWIPED at Arroyos' mitt. It was so blatant and obvious in the replay. If you did not see it. Like the rest of the world then there is absolutely no point in argueing with you.
If you have noticed the other posters are no longer replying to you directly because you appear to be insanely bias.
EVIDENCE is the KEY and you are definitley not make a subjective or objective judgment. Watch the replay again and seriously try to back up your orginal statement. AROD clearly changed his running style from a closed hand to a opened handed swipe directed at Arroyo glove hand.
Even with replay you may never change your mind. Thats why you never argue with people who are unreasonable**crazed fans for whatever team**. No matter what you say they have already made up their mind. And there is nothing you can say or point out that can change their mind no matter how wrong they are. Hence UNREASONABLE.
