There’s no love lost between Oakland Raiders wide receiver Michael Crabtree and Broncos cornerback Aqib Talib. It was just last season that Talib disrespected Crabtree by yanking off his gold chain during a game which led to a fight between the two players.
During today’s game, Crabtree got into it with Talib again after he blocked the Broncos cornerback out of bounds on a play. Both players went go to the ground, and punches were thrown. Crabtree was then swarmed by several Denver players on the sideline. The situation escalated when a helmetless Crabtree started throwing haymakers at Talib in the middle of the field.
Apparently the fight started because Talib snatched Crabtree’s chain again for the second year in a row.
Things could have gotten uglier if Marshawn Lynch didn’t personally protect Talib from getting his ass kicked by the Raiders bench.
Crabtree and Talib were both ejected for their role in the fight. Raiders’ lineman Gabe Jackson made contact with a referee and was also ejected.
The NFL is surely going to drop some heavy fines on Crabtree and Talib.
Stay tuned as both players are probably going to talk a massive amount of shit to each after the game.
