A post-game brawl almost breaks out after the Lions & 49ers game. Jim Schwartz took exception to Jim Harbaugh’s post game celebration & went after the San Francisco coach. Much more of a baseball “fight”, but this incident is going to draw fines, on both sides, if not a one game suspension** for the Lions coach.
The NYT’s “5th Down blog has some follow up comments, as well as video of Harbaugh’s run in with former USC, and current Seahawks, H.C. Pete Carroll.
**(Post Edit: Not saying it would be justified or not, but the Commissioner has certainly been heavy handed in his doling out of suspensions to players for their poor behavior. He may see this as an opportunity to show fans & players that he will be equally strict on coaches and other personnel who display poor judgement in their actions. Just a hunch, but I’ll bet on Harbaugh getting $50K & Schwartz getting $100K, but it could certainly be more.)
