but one could make the claim that fights are determined by the ultimate situations. I remember fights on the football field in high school. They were not seen as a "fight" more as two team mates going at one another and then, whoopdie doo, we are a team agian. But if its two strangers, then the fight is probably seen different and the outcome could be different. Also, i think that ties into the AL and PAC situation that they probably wouldnt of took the fight that far because the are familiar with one another and they know the consequences by a full blown fight. Hmmm. What ever happened to Joey Porter went he fought that bengals lineman. i dont recall the grim reaper(goodell) doing anything about that one. He was fined, but fighting another teams player, puts a bad name to the league, and he got no suspension for it. That grim reaper always gets the calls right.
