    Default Vince Young in training camp donnybrook

    Not the wisest thing to punch someone with your throwing hand:

    Video: Vince Young Involved In Scuffle With Teammate

    http://www.wsmv.com/sports/13801252/detail.html

    ......Trainers helped Filani to the side, then Nickey broke up the pass by taking receiver Courtney Roby to the ground on the very next play by putting his right arm around Roby's neck in a chokehold move. Young, who had thrown the pass, erupted.He yelled at Nickey and asked him what he was doing, telling him to quit that stuff. Young ran over as Roby stayed on the ground. Nickey put his right hand on Young's chest before the quarterback shoved back and took a swing at the safety.

    Tight end Bo Scaife came in and helped push Nickey away from the fray, and 13-year veteran center Kevin Mawae got in front of Young, pushing him clear. Young took several minutes to cool off and continued yelling back. Fisher pulled his team together at midfield and reminded them to cool it. After practice ended, Nickey met with Roby and shared a half hug, and Young hugged Nickey. Fisher then made the three stand behind him as he talked with reporters.

    "My preference is not to see my quarterback throwing punches with his throwing hand. Secondly, we need to avoid the stuff on the field, and hey, it happens. Everything is OK. Right?" Fisher asked of the trio.They all said yes.Young said the incident was over, families fight and they all got it off their chest. Asked about throwing a punch with his throwing hand."That's bad. That's bad. That's real bad," Young said. . .

    Maybe they can come up here to our training camp to see how professional football players really prepare for the season

    If you guys think small spats like this don't happen at a lot of NFL camps your wrong. And for the record if one of our second string safeties lit up Marvin, Reggie, Gonzalez, Clark etc. you can be damn sure Peyton would let them know he was upset. WRs have to trust their QBs and know they have their back. Vince did the right thing. Granted the punch with the throwing hand wasn't the wisest idea, but I'd bet money most people in the Titans locker room gained more respect for Vince because of this.

    Vince did the right thing. It's training camp! Why take your own teammate down like that? I mean, I know coaches want the players to go all out and practise sometimes like it's the real thing, but c'mon!

    This happens quite often. After seeing the video, I think Vince was actually wrong for confronting him on this one. The hit wasn't that bad.

    It sounded from the article like Nickey had already taken out one receiver before that and the hit on Roby did look like a high collar shot, unnecessary in practice against your own teammates. Still, ya don't want to lead with the right if you're the starting QB. Send the Pulling Guard out to do your dirty work.

    The thing is, Donnie Brook got spit on last year by LenWhale..so he's obviously doing something to **** his team-mates off.
