while the 6-foot-5 Weaver worked as a security guard at an April taping of the "Jerry Springer Show."

Umps must get paid terribly.

Sweeny is a puss, let's go on record for saying that, it takes a big man to charge up on someone with their back turned.

Weaver is a pitcher, Cosby.

least sweeney kicked his ass, u don't see that too often, usually they just kinda push each other around. Hell, last time I saw someone get beat up was when Robin Ventura charged the mound on Nolan Ryan and Ryan got him in a headlock and started punching the shiat out of him...

hell, Weaver is a punk, he was trying to push sweeney's button's, he said some real stupid shiat to someone who wasn't gonna let him get away w/ it...all he had to do was move the bag to the back of the mound and there would have been no problem.

heh, i was at the game, it was a cool fight either way... :)

Detroit manager Phil Garner called it "the most vicious thing I've ever seen."

Good to see that Phil hasn't lost his knack for hyperbole. Either that or he's never watched the evening news.

When is a fight, not a fight? When it's a basebrawl. Baseball fights look like bad high school wrestling. Give me ol' Juan Marichal swinging his Louisville Slugger at Roseboro's dome, now THAT'S fighting.

This was in the sixth inning, not the second, and this was clearly Sweeney's fault.

Never forget 1984.

It was only Sweeney's fault in that he charged the mound. There are certain things you can let slide, and there are things that you can't. Weaver obviously crossed the line because Sweeney isn't the type of player who'd just run out there for no reason. He's one of the last guys I'd expect to go.
Good for Sweeney, good for the Royals. They could use some fighting spirit. As for Weaver, I hope things didn't get too rough on Springer while he was there. Apparently, he can't take the rough stuff.

X3rO: What about when Mark Whiten nearly took Black Jack McDowell's head off? That was awesome. Still one of the better punches I've ever seen

Profanity or not, Sweeney made a conscious decision to rush to mound, and deserved to be ejected.

Hell yeah, Chach. The memory of the boys of '84 live on in the threads of Fark.

Reminds me of the Cubbies and Phillies fights and the Cubbies and Mets fights and the Cubbies and Reds fights. Oh the good ol' days.

Dogbone: yeah, that one was great too...I always think of the Ventura/Ryan one because well, ventura got the shiat beat out of him by someone twice his age... that's funny shiat...hehe

Ventura forgot that Ryan was a working rancher. Nolan said it was just like bulldogging a young steer. Ventura said it was like getting hit with a shovel by your grandpa. Strange analogy, but I think we all get it.
