True, because basketball is not a contact sport in the same way that football is.  My point is that everything moves so fast and the game is so inherently physical that I believe there needs to be some leeway.  Also, I believe the intent of the player that committed the targeting foul needs to at least be a consideration.  Two targeting fouls from the same player in a game should result in an ejection.  One targeting foul that is deemed egregious and/or intentional should also result in an ejection.  To kick a player out after one unintentional, non-egregious targeting call seems excessive to me.

I'm all for player safety and I think the current targeting rules help to protect players, however ejecting a player after one targeting foul is too harsh in my opinion.  Similar to technical fouls in basketball, I believe if a player commits two targeting fouls he should be ejected.  If the player is unable/unwilling to adjust after the first targeting foul then he should face the consequence of an ejection.

I think the hit in the ASU game was clearly worthy of an ejection and, if I'm being completely objective, Bosa's ejection was probably justified based on how the rule's written but it certainly could have gone either way.  The ASU hit should result in an ejection every time.
