    The WWL just spent three minutes dissecting Vince Young's "fight" in Titans training camp.

    It's training camp. There are slap fights in every camp. Who cares that Young slapped at a defensive teammate?

    Flippin' absurd.

    Makes for good video and it beats showing actual highlights (what, those exist?)

    Good video, my man junk.

    It's a slap fight that was broken up almost immediately. Every team fights. It's about as big a deal as a coach scratching his ass while yelling at a lineman.

    I have to give ESPN their due - Gasbag Berman was narrating a piece about Bill Walsh the other day on ESPN news. They gave highlights and talked about The Catch in 1982, and Berman did not, repeat did not interject himself into it and talk about how he was standing on the field behind the end zone that day.

    It was a momentary episode of reason.

    I think when some assbag safety fights your franchise quarterback, it's a story. What if the guy broke Vince's hand? Dislocated his shoulder?

    Someone needs to tell Vince, "Don't punch a helmet with your throwing hand."

    Rhody's right. If two slob linemen grapple, that's five seconds of video during your "around the camps" update. But a QB getting involved is rare and moderately big news for early August. You can tell it got Fisher's attention.
