    Colts Linebacker Erik Walden Headbutts Helmet-Less Titans Player (GIF)

    Things got a little testy last night between the Colts and Titans. And by “testy,” I mean Indianapolis fell behind early—again—so linebacker Erik Walden decided to vent his frustration by ripping the helmet off Tennessee tight end Delanie Walker…and then headbutting him while his own helmet was still on. No joke. Midway through the second quarter, with Tennessee up […]

    Headbutting: Is it safe? Should it require a helmet? I’m guessing that Alex Boone of the San Francisco 49ers would answer those questions with a “yes” and a “no,” respectively.  Although, his teammate and recipient of the un-helmeted headbutt during Sunday’s game, Colin Kaepernick, might feel a little differently—at least if his facial expression after receiving […]

    Remember the good old days when it was just soccer fans who were batsh*t insane?

    Hockey players wear helmets for protection, but Patrick Kaleta of the Buffalo Sabres has a knack for using his as a weapon. He has done it in the past, headbutting members of the opposition on two separate occasions last season.  He was at it once again last night, as he drove his head into the […]

    Another Vicious Soccer Headbutt (Video)

    What is it with soccer players and headbutts? In a Champion’s League play-in match between Spain’s Villarreal and Denmark’s Odense, a rather minor run-in between two players quickly turned unnecessarily violent. Andreas Johansson of Odense took down Borja Valera of Villarreal. The foul was probably worth a yellow card, but it wasn’t especially vicious. After […]

    It wasn’t AC Milan’s day today as they fell to Tottenham by a score of 1-0 during the first leg of their UEFA Champions League round of 16 match-up. After a scoreless first half, the Rossoneri dominated the run of play for much of the second half, but couldn’t capitalize on their chances.  Tottenham, on […]

    We all know that soccer players can be whiny diving sissies at times, and the same can be said about their coaches as well.  This clip says it all, as a player and the opposing coach exchange a few words before butting heads.  At that point, it is a race to see who can hit […]
