There really isn’t an excuse to fight on the football field, ever. It’s an emotional game, people put a lot of time and work into it, but at the end of the day, it’s merely a game. For Arlington Martin and North Crowley, it became more than a game for a split second.

Here’s the context: Arlington Martin was up big, then kicked an onside kick and recovered it. They didn’t score off the onside kick. It’s been alleged that both of the sides started the fight. There have been conflicting reports about the origin of the fight.
Obviously, it’s bad form to kick an onside kick up by three scores at the end of the game. On the other hand, it’s really not worth it to fight about it. I honestly don’t know everything that exactly happened to lead up to this, there are so many angles and so much minutia to this story that I doubt we’ll really have the whole picture.
Regardless, it’s an embarrassing situation for everyone involved.
