Argentine Soccer Match Abandoned After 12 Red Card Brawl [Video]

A third-division soccer match in Argentina between Deportivo Roca and Cipolletti was abandoned, after a brawl involving players, substitutes and riot police resulted in 12 red cards.

The Cipolletti defender Marcos Lamolla was initially given a yellow card for a foul on Fernando Fernández, who protested and was sent off. This led to more protests, a scuffle and Lamolla was given another yellow card and dismissed.

Lamolla then ran the entire length of the pitch, squaring up to Fernández, who was on his way to the dressing room, before being intercepted by a player. The pair lashed out at each other and that quickly led to a free-for-all with players lunging at each other with flying kicks and punches, before Cipolletti players fled down the inflatable tunnel.

Deportivo Roca’s coach found the players’ actions “disgraceful.”

Reno Aces and Albuquerque Isotopes Had a Huge Bench Clearing Brawl, 10 Players Ejected [Video]

The Reno Aces and Albuquerque Isotopes, AAA affiliates for the Diamondbacks and Dodgers, had one of the biggest baseball brawls of the season.

Isotopes infielder Erisbel Arruebarrena was upset after he felt he was thrown at in the top of the second inning by pitcher Mike Bolsinger. He then shoved Aces catcher Blake Lalli after striking out and threw his helmet at another Reno player. Things escalated from there, as the two teams rushed the backstop.

This was not your typical MLB crowd convergence. Takedowns. Punches thrown. A melee at the backstop. This was a full-on backyard rumble. Ten players were ejected.

Richard Sherman Involved in Fight During Seahawks Minicamp, Jersey Torn & Punches Thrown [Video]

There aren’t many players in the NFL that like  Seattle Seahawks star cornerback Richard Sherman, and now it seems that feeling is  spreading to his own teammates.

During just the second day of the Seahawks’ minicamp on Wednesday, the outspoken cornerback got into it with wide receiver Phil Bates, and the altercation ended with Bates’ jersey being torn off and punches being thrown.

Teammates intervened, and Sherman, Earl Thomas, Percy Harvin and Doug Baldwin all got involved in the offense vs. defense civil war.

In traditional Pete Carroll fashion, the Seattle coach played off the skirmish, and joked about the situation.

Sherman, who has established himself as one of the most talented yet talkative players in the league during his time with Seattle, just can’t seem to stay out of the news this offseason.

According to Gordon Edes from ESPNBoston.com, four members of the Red Sox were ejected during the game. Starting pitcher Brandon Workman, third base coach Brian Butterfield, manager John Farrell and bench coach Torey Lovullo were all sent to the showers early.
