    12 Memorable NFL Fights and Brawls

    In the NFL you have to bring the intensity on every single play. And this fact, combined with the inherent violence of the game, sometimes leads to on-field scuffles between players and coaches. Of course, when that happens there are always ejections and fines. We all have to act like we disapprove, because nobody wants to encourage such behavior. […]

    When a brawl breaks out in an NFL game, the league fines and suspends everybody involved, then they issue statements condemning the whole thing. When a brawl breaks out in an LFL game, they’re like, “Sweet dudes, let’s put it up on YouTube!” Because the point of the LFL—formerly the Lingerie Football League, now the […]

    World Cup Brawl: Croatia Fans Battle Mexico Fans in Recife (Video)

    The 2014 FIFA World Cup has been going on for two weeks now. You would have thought we’d have seen tons of soccer brawls by now, given how soccer fans like to get wasted and wail on each other.

    You know who’s not caught up in the Olympic spirit? Pretty much everyone at the peewee hockey game between Brokenhead and Sagkeeng in Winnipeg last Saturday. There was no sportsmanship or camaraderie, and there was no setting aside of differences. Instead, there was only physical violence and an abundance of foul language. The two teams […]

    If I say two soccer players got sent off for fighting, you automatically assume I’m talking about two players on opposing teams. And I certainly don’t blame you. However, in this case, I’m actually talking about teammates. The team? Top-tier Lithuanian side Dainava Alytus. During a recent league match against Banga, which they lost 1-0, […]

    Lacrosse is an interesting sport. It was invented by Native Americans, which is pretty cool, but it kind of feels a lot like hockey with weird sticks and no ice. There’s almost as much padding, probably as much checking, and definitely as much fighting—and that includes your standard one-on-one fights, plus your garden variety line […]

    Hey, did you happen to catch the mens doubles finals of the Canada Open Badmintion Tournament on…um, I don’t know, ESPN 14 over the weekend?  No?  Well, me either. I don’t think it was actually on ESPN 14, or any other fictitious sports channel for that matter. And it’s a shame, too, because we missed […]
