Tempers Flare in The Sporting World

NBA players have at it, while a soccer official protects himself from a disgruntled fan.

Tempers Flare in The Sporting World

It wasn't a week for the faint hearted in the sports world, with Rajon Rondo turning into Raging Rondo, while a linesman in Trinidad & Tobago had to take matters into his own flag when a spectator didn't like one of his calls, and an under-10 ice hockey game turned into a free-for-all brawl on the ice!

Rondo took umbrage with how Kris Humphries challenged Kevin Garnett during Wednesday night's game between the Boston Celtics and the Brooklyn Nets.  Humphries and Rondo were both ejected and the Nets went on to win the game 95-83. Check out the melee here:

Meanwhile, a soccer linesman had to take some drastic measures during a recent game when a spectator took to the field and tried to assault him. The official managed to come out of it unscathed, showing some neat flag moves to drop the intruder and help police detain him.


Finally, this under-10 hockey game in Russia had to be called early because of incessant fighting among the players. These kids don't mess about.
