Unless your name is Dan Dority, it's probably never a good idea to fight anyone who goes by the name of "Captain." But not only did Minnesota Vikings wide receiver Percy Harvin(notes) fight Carolina Panthers defensive back Captain Munnerlyn(notes), he did it right on the Panthers sideline, where the odds are not exactly in his favor.
Then again, I guess no fight is ever that dangerous when you're wearing an NFL helmet.
The final fight scorecard? Well, no one was hurt, or even landed a punch, really. But Harvin drew a flag for a personal foul, while the Panthers amassed no laundry. Harvin caught four balls for 58 yards on the day, but the scoreboard itself decides this one: Vikings win, 24-21.
I continue to be amazed at how loosely the NFL enforces its "throw a punch, get ejected" rule.
