While you make a distinction between gouging and contact with the eye / eye area, T Bone, they have effectively become interchangeable in contemporary discussions, certainly the press and social media.
Did KS set out to literally blind Paterson? No, I don't believe that for a second.

Did KS make contact with Patersons eye/eye area? I think so. The panel tomorrow will have more angles/pictures etc to help them make their determination. If they agree that he did a ban should follow.

Yes, I appreciate that there is no separate offence of gouging now, so it's hard to see how he's not guilty of the offence of making contact with the eye / eye area. Just pointing out, more in response to some of the rubbish I've seen on twitter and facebook than on here, that from what I've seen I genuinely don't think anyone could say with any certainty that he's done something truly unpleasant and poked someone's eyes. I realise that is not what the offence covers though.

At the time, as well as saying "well what about what happened to my eye" Ward was asking the ref to request a close up of Paterson's eyes to show that there were no marks.
