NFL Fight Night?

November 30, 2017

Last weekend, we saw some of the craziest fighting I have ever seen in the National Football League. A year ago, Michael Crabtree and Aqib Talib got into a big fight when they played and it seemed to have started when Talib grabbed Crabtree's chain and ripped it off. Now that one seemed crazy, but the fact that it happened again seemed even more insane to me. Here is the other thing that I can't seem to figure out - why they seem to hate each other. I was watching highlights with my Mom (since she was in town for the holiday) and she asked if that was normal and I said fights happen all the time, it's no big deal. I was wrong though as this fight is much different and rough. I had not realized that the chain had been ripped off again and that a huge brawl had broken out. Now, the other side of this is the fact that I can't lie, I found it exciting. I should also mention I like fighting, as in combat sports such as mixed martial arts or boxing, so watching some pro athletes go at it was fun. Football fights are always kind of funny too because everyone is wearing helmets and this has happened for years. It looks silly but also I get people are just so pissed at that point that they do not care that they are wearing pads and helmets, they just want to throw punches and fight. 

Now that it has been a few days and the suspensions have been handed out, you think we would know what the beef was, but we still don't. It has been almost a week and, honestly, I have no idea what this is about. I can tell you this, those two guys legit don't like each other and I would have to believe that they have some real beef going back some days. I also have to wonder since both these guys play in the NFL and they are both good players, that they must run into each other at some events in the off season. That brings me to another point about the chain grabbing - where was he going to go? I mean, I fathom that if you snatch a chain off a dude in a club you get the chain or sell it, but where was he going with Crabtree's chain? In the end, maybe we will never know what the fight or beef is really about, but I guarantee you this much - I am pumped to see these guys play each other again and I do not care one bit about either team!
