Default Fights erupt at Falcons camp

http://msn.foxsports.com/nfl/story/5873396

FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. (AP) - The broiling tedium of training camp finally made the Atlanta Falcons snap.

"This is football, and as long as it don't translate into the things in the locker room, everything will be fine," Milloy said. "In my 11 years, this has been one of the toughest, if not the toughest, training camp in my career. You have to expect tempers to flare."

Milloy's fight with Lehr escalated so quickly at the end of an 11-on-11 drill that the 32-year-old strong safety quickly found himself lying face-up on the bottom of a huge pile of players.

"This is the part of camp where things start to wear on you," Milloy said. "In the end, though, you've just got to remember what color jersey the other guy's wearing."

The Milloy-Lehr matchup served as an undercard of sorts for Hall's insult-laden shoving match with Crumpler. Off the field, the two players have maintained a friendship, but several teammates and coaches twice had to restrain Hall, a Pro Bowl cornerback, and Crumpler, a three-time Pro Bowl tight end.

Hall only ended what he started earlier in the 90-minute workout. Frustrated by Jennings during a 7-on-7 drill, Hall punched the rookie receiver so hard that Jennings' helmet flew off his head.

"Didn't mean to tangle with him, but you've got to be aggressive sometimes," Jennings said. "He's an aggressive guy, but he's my teammate, and I have a lot of respect for him."

Nobody was hurt from the incidents, though Hall didn't participate in the night session with his left wrist wrapped in a bandage. Coach Jim Mora long ago established a precedent of giving his starters and important reserves extra time off during camp.

According to Milloy, who signed a three-year deal five months ago with $3 million in guaranteed bonuses, Mora challenged everybody during a team-wide meeting that preceded the morning session.

Mora sidestepped the specifics of his message, mostly because he wants the team's energy to flow first from high-profile veterans Milloy, Hall and Crumpler.

It honestly blows my mind that anyone can be dumb enough to take a swing at someone wearing a helmet. Not that I condone fighting, especially with your own team, but if you have to fight pull his facemask down and hit him in the stomach. That said, it seems that teams aren't waiting for gametime to start fights anymore.

training camp fights are nothing to worry about. when ur out busting ur arse in the mid-day summer heat, anything pisses you off. fights rarely amount to anything once the season starts.

I know there are scuffles in camp, but Hall punched a rookie WR so hard his helmet came off. That, IMO, is unacceptable behavior.

I heard somewhere that he was favoring his hand afterwards .... in fist v. helmet battles, the helmet usually wins ....

So fighting in practice is OK as long as the guy doesn't fight like a girl? Is he supposed to hit him so hard his helmet comes off? Helmets don't even come off that often in a game going full speed.

Unless you are a Raiders TE that gets in the way of Romanowski.

Plus, I seem to remember Stephen Davis coming off pretty poorly after a fight with Michael Westbrook.

Did you see the video? The rookie grabbed Hall's facemask to start the fight, threw the first punch. Hall then grabbed his facemask and hit him in the chinstrap. It's a fight, **** happens.

Whatever happened, you say stuff happens, say Hall would have broke his hand when he hit the guy, then I doubt it would just be stuff happens to the Falcons and their coaches, especially over a stupid fight in practice.
