You said it was subjective and that you were not clear on what the rule for Launching is. You said that players needed to understand the rules have changed and actually understand the rules.
I am simply saying that he did nothing wrong and it is, IMO, ridiculous to chastise the player for making a block within the confines of the rules.
I liken this to a guy who goes out and wins the Olympic Gold in the 100 but is ridiculed because he did not break the world record while winning the Gold.
The play was clean and I see no reason to jump all over the guy for simply applying a legal block.
