Fighting in Sports
By now the basketball fight between the Pacers and Pistons (along with the fans) is fairly well-known. What pisses me off (and convinces me even more that sports in general is completely out of touch with reality and overblown) is that no player was arrested. Artest should have been sent to jail immediately, period. I don't know if any fans were arrested, but I bet some were, and I also bet none of the players will see any jail time. I realize suspensions have been set, but...so what? That kind of behavior was sickening, and it makes me that more set against ever seeing another professional sporting event in my life.
