    SYG is relevant only if Zimmerman could have retreated from Martin.  The only eyewitness to the fight said Martin was on top of Zimmerman and appeared to be punching him.  So, if this is the case how could Zimmerman have retreated when someone was on top of him?

      or clothing.

      Have you ever punched someone in the face?  How many times can you do that without getting sweat, tears, snot, spit, or blood on your hands?  Well, I can tell you from experience:  Zero.

      The physical evidence disproves punching claims.

      You're trying to invent some "out" whereby SYG wording was not in the instructions and SYG concepts were not in the minds of the jurors.  As B37 said the concept was clearly on their minds.

      SYG was a part of the case from start to finish -- from the moment of first police response and the resulting poor investigation because it was assumed that the shooter had stood his ground.

      Finally, I'd like to see how you pull a gun out of the back of your waistband with a guy on top of you punching you. Look at where the guy's legs are. You can't get there from here.
