"This guy kind of like got in his face a little bit, like he was going to stand there and make an issue," said Damon, who said he's not a football fan and didn't know Rodgers played for the Dolphins.

This is what I thought... I mentioned this in an earlier thread, the initial report mentioned that the other guy stood up when Derrick came to the table... this led me to believe that Derrick at least percieved that he was standing up to square off...
I really didn't believe the punching/kicking his wife allegations either... I see Derrick as being of a higher caliber than that.
It's my hope that this other guy won't want to persue this assault charge too emphatically... I'd like to see this thing blowover so we can get to playin some football!

I agree with Muck - this chick does not deserve a stand-up guy like DR. If I saw a stranger talking to my wife I'd hit him with more than a chair. The guy got what was comming to him and I don't care how much smaller he was than DR!
This kid was 19, and he stood up to "challenge" Derrick Rodgers? Was he dropped on his head as a kid? Derrick is huge. He is a linebacker for the frickin' NFL. What in the world was a 19 year old kid thinking getting in the face of a guy as big as him? Was he asking for a metal chair to the back of his head? Some people......
