One guy couldn't play due to injury and the other had to transfer to another school as a condition of not being charged with assault.
Not having been there, I can't attest to what happened, but you give a guy ONE free pass on that. Either homeboy said it repeatedly, OR said it in a context which pissed his boy the vugg off. That sounds unpleasant.
