It sums up the tedium of West Bromwich Albion's goalless draw against Fulham that Paul Robinson became the centre of attention merely for avoiding injury after a clash of heads with Moritz Volz, writes Hyder Jawad.
Robinson, the Albion left back, is nicknamed Mad Dog by his team-mates but now he might be known as Brick Head.
Having emerged unscathed from the challenge, Robinson was delighted that Volz did not suffer serious damage. Robinson was able to see Volz afterwards, before the Fulham player was sent to hospital for a check-up.
"I just tried to get on with the game," Robinson said. "I'm a bit disappointed because he has been rushed to hospital but hopefully there is no serious damage.
"It was a fully committed challenge from both of us and the ball was there to be won and unfortunately for Volz he has come off worse. Hopefully there will be no serious damage.
"I was not hurt at all. I am made of brick! I think the adrenalin sometimes takes you through the pain barrier.
"I give 110 per cent and if I have a bad game, I hold my hands up. I like to put my foot in. I enjoy the aggressive side of the game although sometimes I have to curb that.
"I have to be careful what I do. Mad Dog, I think some of the players have called me it because in training I am the same. It is just a bit of banter between the lads which has just carried on and now everyone calls me 'Mad Dog' now."
Robinson was sent off in the previous match against Fulham - a League Cup tie in September - but that particular story appears to have a happy ending. Robinson claimed that the red card, for a "foul" on Zat Knight, was an injustice.
"I thought it was me that got battered but I give a lot of respect to Zat Knight," he said. "He came up to me today and apologised and there are no hard feelings between him and me."
