Are you serious?

Are you fuging kidding me? This is baseball right? Home-plate collisions are part of the game, also this happened in extra innings, great play by Cousins.
poo happens sometimes and it sucks that Posey is seriously hurt, but in no way is this a dirty play and no way in hell should they be taken out of the game.

I'm hearing waaaaaaay to much blather about changing the rules, requiring catchers to play the plate like the other bases are covered (over, not in front).
Don't get that.
I understand asset protection, but lets not further tarnish the image of the game towards greater pussification.

Collisions are pretty much part of the game as is breaking up a double play at second.
And I am a die hard Giants fan who has a serious Man-Crush on Buster.
edit: I just saw the replay and now I change my mind. That was a blatant upper body hit. I would be more accepting if it was Buster's fault for being in the base line but he was just in front of home plate like he should have been.
I'm still cool with collisions but this was pretty blatant.

There is no way he was trying to hurt Posey.

If you want to protect your star players, it's simple: don't put them at home plate where they can be drilled by runners.
Kinda hard to keep a catcher away from the plate.
