Eric Davis Jr.?



Seriously, i wonder if it was his son, or a boyfriend of one of his daughters.

Would this cost Ray his gig?

And now you know why cops/emts don't like domestics.
No I know why, in New Jersey they'd arrest both people and sort it out later who was at fault.

I would think it would, even if he's never found guilty.

It's how things are these days.

Looking at the video posted above, it seems that the blow Knight threw was completely uncalled for.  I never knew he was such a hot head. I'm guessing he was the bad guy in this altercation.

Along with Dusty, I'd hope to see Carp, FP, Knight, Holliday, Wood, et al given their walking papers too. Time for a "new broom."

Wasn't Ray a Golden Gloves boxer growing up? I remember Johnny mentioning that a couple of times. That might explain why the younger dude got admitted to the hospital.

Possibly, but that video is over 30 years old.  People can change in three decades.

Out of those, I wouldn't mind seeing Holliday back, especially if Ray stays.  I'll happily drive Carpenter to St. Louis myself if it means he stays there permanently.

But that was my point: he doesn't seem to have changed.  65 year-olds generally do not get into fist fights.  Even when provoked.  I cannot imagine a circumstance where I would throw a punch, unless it was a clear case of self-defense (or protecting someone else).  Let's see if that's what happened here, I doubt it.

If that's the case then it's possible he can be charged with assault with a deadly weapon.  No joke. Depends on the jurisdiction.

As much of a jerk as Knight (apparently) is, he has a brilliant insight into the game which would be difficult to replace.  I also would not like to see Wood go. People don't seem to realize, there just aren't that many people around who can do that sort of thing.  I would like to see that stupid TV show (Nats Talk) go away and just become a radio show.  Either that, or masn should provide sufficient resource to make it a legitimate tv show, like video, etc.  I would like to see that useless sidekick (Wallace) go away.

Oh for heaven's sake he got into a fist fight, I'm sure he's not proud of it but he didn't plan anyone's murder and it's not like he's a habitual offender so let's cut the guy some slack.  If they fire him for this I'm going to be SO angry  >:(

Angry enough to go punch someone at 4 am?

The fact there wasn't an 18 year old Viet Namese pool boy involved is disappointing

Interesting because it seems he lives in our neighborhood, based on the street name.

Not if he comes out of the closet

He did give Davis quite a hip thrust :hysterical:
