Somehow, we've made it close to 24 hours without a fight at a sporting event. It started Friday night with the brawl between the Pistons and the Pacers and their fans
. Then, yesterday, South Carolina and Clemson got into it a brawl.
What ever happened to good sportsmanship?
I guess it's gone. I hope that the players on both sides of the SC/Clemson fight are suspended for their respective bowl games and, if they have an eligibility next year, for a couple of games next year.
As for the NBA--that was an ugly scene all around. I've only seen the footage 1800 times on SportsCenter and the news. First of all, I have to say the players had no right to go up into the stands like that. But, on the other side of things, the fans do not have the right to throw things at the players on the court. In this case, both the players and fans are in the wrong.
