First, Nelson was totally out of line to kick the unconscious guy in the head, obviously that is terrible.
From a criminal standpoint, i've already seen his lawyer stating that the 'real damage' was done by the Redshirt Guy and witnesses all do say that the punch rendered the victim unconscious. So I assume that is your argument if you are Nelson's lawyer, prove beyond a shadow of a doubt that it was Nelson's kick and not the knockout punch that caused this terrible damage.
Also, I don't know if anything matters about Nelson being punched by the guy first. Obviously kicking a guy who is knocked out is not self-defense, I just don't know what rules are about retaliating against someone who has already assaulted you.
Agree with the posters who talk about how worthless bar fights are, nothing good can come of them and this shows the gruesome side of where they can end up.
In another weird twist...the lawyer for Nelson, just got done representing and winning the case for the MSU coach (where victim played). If you remember he was accused of child porn for having photos of his kids playing naked on his university issued cell phone.

So this will probably be taken the wrong way, but....
Rosenberg appears to have violated several codes that a good journalist should abide by. However, he had two people that he really despised Martin and RR. And say what you want but he had an instrumental role in the downward spiral that forced them out. Now I don't agree with his methods, and I don't know if 'credit' is the right word. But for a journalist with an agenda, he was able to force some of his will on the landscape and future of the Michigan Football World. It may have been a scheisty way to go about it, but the guy got what he wanted.

On another board, and this is hearsay...but from a guy on the track team that knows Denard. He gained about 10 lbs of muscle since his track days at Michigan...he says that this inevitably would slow him a little bit, but I think it is a worthy trade off if he is a little more durable.

I'm honestly weary from trying to reason with people.
