Agreed, Melvin was only in as much danger as he allowed himself to be. Obviously by the outcome of the slam, Melvin, even without letting go of Varner, was still able to tuck his head and avoid being slammed. That alone shows he was in control of the situation. That and if all ease fails... he could have always let go of Varner....

No rules were broken and no dangerous conduct was seeing this day.

I was hoping someone would point out those Throws. They were far more dangerous and simultaneously impressive.

Bottom line, if Melvin isn't screaming foul, why should any of us? It was his neck on the line and I don't see him complaining.
