Yup. Physically fighting anyone as an adult in a society is maybe one of the stupidest things in the world. Comes in second to actually picking or starting said physical confrontation in the first place.

Agreed but I'd say it was a distant second. There is no time in my life where I would have behaved like either party involved in this incident but if this guy was verbally abused, drenched with a beverage and then sneak-attacked after being told it was over, I can understand his reaction. At least up until the post-beating celebration.

At least for the beer part of it, one has to ask themselves is it worth having a criminal record by retaliating.
We had to fire a guy bc he had a record from a fight that occurred 9 years ago. Not bc we wanted to fire him, but bc a broker dealer wouldn’t clear him to operate on their platform. So yeah, carrying that record can be a real beast of unintended consequences.

I don’t disagree. And sometimes you literally cannot avoid it if they’ve cornered you and you need to defend yourself or others. But 95% of the time there’s an alternative route to non-physical violence.

for instance, if you were doused by beer, and those sitting around you would be witnesses, I’m pretty sure those knuckleheads would be tossed by security.

More details about the fan fight have come out:

https://kdvr.com/news/local/video-fight-between-nuggets-and-suns-fans-goes-viral/

The fan who shot the video, @cbj3000, said in the tweet that the two Nuggets fans were leaving when the Suns fan waved bye to them and yelled “Suns in 4!”

The Nuggets fans got up to leave, stopped, turned back and dumped a beer on the Suns fan’s head, the fan said in the tweet.

The Nuggets fan threw a punch at the Suns fan and the Suns fan grabbed the Nuggets fan. He pulled his head down and continued punching him.

See. When the Suns fans wife divorces him, she shows this video to the judge and bye bye kids. This is the kind of stuff I deal with all the time. I get to try to help people after they ha e made such messes.

I am sorry but this is the finals. Booker not showing up is beyond unacceptable.
