    Fan Fights During NFL Playoff Games

    Seems there isn't a game that goes by that there isn't a fight in the stands or parking lot of every NFL game. Here's one from the Chargers vs Ravens game last weekend.

    What do you guys think? It's one of the reasons I don't enjoy going to games. There's no excuse to act like an animal. I really don't understand why people get physically violent? Is it the alcohol? Is it their low IQs? Is it because they suffered abuse? Is it mental issues?

    Anytime you bring 60,000+ people together in a venue with alcohol, the chances of an idiot being in there somewhere is pretty high. I'm surprised that I've never seen a fight in any game I've ever attended. I've seen plenty of fights in bars with far less people.

    So is it more sports or more alcohol?

    I was just wondering why it happens.

    As another example, soccer matches seem to have more insane fans than any other sport. Europeans have a lot more pent up aggression they need to let out. Maybe they're bigger drunks? I dunno.

    It happens because there are idiots in this world who are looking for a fight or who turn to violence when things aren't going their way. I think it's more sports because tensions are high. But alcohol definitely plays a role because you see idiots in bars getting into fights, even without the tension that sports brings.

    Had a buddy whose brother was just a plain bad dude. He would go into bars specifically looking to beat the S out of people. Been in and out of jail a few times, but doesn't seem to care who he hurts or maims.

    I think the Alcohol has 70% to do with it.

    43% of all statistical percentages are simply made up on the spot.
    Steeler teams featuring stat-driven, me-first, fantasy-football-darling diva types such as Antonio Brown & Le'Veon Bell won no championships.

    Super Bowl winning Steeler teams were built around a dynamic, in-your-face defense plus blue-collar, hard-hitting, no-nonsense football players on offense such as Hines Ward & Jerome Bettis.

    We don't want Juju & Conner to replace what we lost in Brown & Bell.

    We are counting on Juju & Conner to return us to the glory we once had with Hines & The Bus.

    Well, I said " I think" ; I have no scientific data to back up that percentage. LOL. But I do think it's the majority of the problem.
