The first Miami Beach Bowl was a notable one. Memphis beat BYU 55-48 in overtimel. The celebration, almost instantaneously, devolved into a brawl with full-on punches thrown. Multiple people at fault here. It appears Memphis players threw the first punches, though its not clear what those were in response to. BYU DB Kei Nacua had a notable low light with this sucker punch.
Things eventually cooled down but it left a black eye in what was a pretty good game.
Daniel Orton, a one-time five-star recruit at Kentucky, never panned out in his one year of college or the pros and is playing for the Sichuan Blue Whales in the Chinese Basketball Association. Here is the 24-year-old getting into a brawl in a game vs. Tianjin.
One commenter on YouTube put it best, “If the wind will do that to your face at 150, imagine what the asphalt will do at 150.” I actually can imagine that. Quite vividly, too. Just blood and guts and human stool splattered everywhere.
Buffalo police officers responding to that alleged threat stopped a 2005 Ford F-150 pickup truck in which Kelly was a passenger at 458 Pearl.
Kelly was forcibly removed from the vehicle, officers said. Police said Kelly kicked and tried to swing at officers as they removed him from the vehicle. They said he resisted getting into a patrol vehicle and struggled with staff at central booking.
Kelly is the nephew of legendary Buffalo Bills QB Jim Kelly.
An official release from the league further specified the Week 16 incident and supplied context to Raiola’s discipline-heavy background:
In the third quarter of Sunday’s game, Raiola stomped on the leg of Bears defensive tackle Ego Ferguson at the conclusion of a play, violating Rule 12, Section 2, Article 12 (b) of the NFL Rule Book prohibiting “kicking or kneeing an opponent.” Raiola has been previously disciplined five times since 2010, including once earlier this season, for safety-related rules violations.]
