You kinda develop that gut feeling once you've seen a player getting lit up like a Christmas tree, in the middle of a field, in full view of many players, shrug it off, and say nothing hit. The best part was when two BB's hit the player's helmet with a "PING". -- Anyways, I digress.. and I agree I can be wrong
