Link  (Just in case it's not in the camp link which I haven't been through yet).

 

 

With his fists waving up and down, an angry Rivera warned players about the dangers of losing their cool in practice.

 

"We can't have chippiness or late shots toward a teammate," Rivera said afterward. "The concern obviously is it escalates and it festers and it lingers and the next time we go out on the football field somebody is taking a shot... We can't afford to afford to have anybody that we truly need get caught up in this."

 

There were several confrontations during the morning practice, the biggest involving a heated altercation between the offense and defense involving more than a dozen players by the time quarterback Cam Newton and others pulled players from the scrum.

 

It appeared to start after offensive tackle Byron Bell and defensive end Greg Hardy got into it during a running play.

 

 

 

Although it can be bad, I am going to look at it as a good thing...especially now that Rivera is getting it under control.

Back on topic...

I like the attitude, we need more of it. Just not directed at each other obviously.

For what it's worth, Rivera said on an episode of This Is Gross that he had been called that since playing for Ditka...

No need to get feathers ruffled... Some people knew it, others did not.

No big deal.

This is a good thing. I have heard multiple head coaches say that they prefer their team to have at least brawl in training camp. I have even heard of coaches telling their vet players to start one. This shows that the intensity, aggression, and violence level is there to start start the season on a positive note.

Football is a game you play on the edge, and the only way to know where the edge is, is to go past it once in a while. Obviously as a coach you have to act a certain way so things don't get completely out of control, and Rivera did so appropriately.

Looking forward to watching our guys let some of this loose on the Seahawks opening day!

Back on topic. I just KNEW Cam Newton was going to be mentioned in this article from espn. Surprisingly, he's seen as the good guy. Bravo!
