Another Football Practice, Another Football Practice Fight Between Teammates
Man, the way these guys have been pushing/punching/choking their teammates, you'd start to think that football was a violent sport.
In what has been a week defined by intra-team skirmishes at the professional ranks (Cam Newton, Geno Smith, etc.), the young guns are finally getting in on the action, with two Texas Longhorns casually punching each other in the facemask. Hooray! Offensive tackle Tristan Nickelson -- who tips the scales at 320 pounds -- and defensive end Derick Roberson -- who is 30 pounds lighter and five inches shorter -- went at it Thursday during a practice designed specifically to make the team better at (get this) beating OTHER teams.
At one point, Roberson landed a right hand to Nickelson's helmet while holding a handful of his facemask -- a brilliant strategy if his hands were made of adamantium. They are not.
