This article presents the author's comments about fights among various rugby football players. Olin Kreutz, a player of the Chicago Bears football team, busted the jaw of teammate Fred Miller last month. What's surprising about this altercation is that anybody else found out about it. Fights like these happen all the time. They take place on the practice field, in the locker room, in somebody's backyard, and the players usually keep it under wraps. They don't need coaches to police them when they scuffle. They settle it on their own.
