Most times, if you are looking for a good hard nosed fight you can go to your nearest watering hole on a Friday or Saturday night.

But in recent weeks, you do not have to look any further than a NFL training camp to get your fight fix for the week.

Every day, it seems we see at least one brawl that has broken out in Flowery Branch, Ga or Green Bay, Wisc. or Phoenix, AZ.

Training camp fights are not new, we see them every year but it seems that this year more than others in the past they have become headline news.

The incident out in Oxnard, CA. between Oakland and Dallas crossed over into the bizarre once fans started getting involved.

Most coached will tell you privately that they do not mind a little back and forth between teammates because it stirs things up for the team.

But when they become commonplace, then that is where something has to be curtailed.

Who needs UFC when you can just go to training camp and see close to the same action.  By the way, to this point there have been no UFC like activities at Panthers camp.

Does this concern you that maybe the team has not gotten after it enough?

Only time will tell.
