New York Giants linemen Damon Harrison and Bobby Hart were involved in the latest of the team’s training camp fights.The New York Giants had another fight at practice today, reports Dan Duggan of NJ.com. Damon “Snacks” Harrison and Bobby Hart had to be separated from each other. NJ.com posted a video of the fight to their YouTube account.
The Giants have had several fights in camp, most notably with Janoris Jenkins and safety Eric Pinkins getting into it. According to Paul Schwartz of The New York Post, Jenkins was throwing punches in that fight. This one was more pushing and shoving than punching.
Fighting teammates is never a good thing, but it happens fairly frequently during training camps. Players are competitive, and when they are going after it as hard as the Giants players do, tensions sometimes boil. Players push and shove, take a minute to cool off, and are fine.
Football is a physical game, and players get competitive. During training camp, when players are itching to hit somebody and have no opponents to hit, this happens sometimes.
The Seahawks are known for having fights in training camp and are routinely one of the better teams in the NFL. The phrase iron sharpens iron is thrown out a lot when these fights happen.
This isn’t an uncommon occurrence and is nothing for fans to panic over. It’s just competitive players giving it their all.
