A fracas, slobberknocker, fisticuff broke out in the stands of the LA Rams pre-season opener versus the LA Chargers last night.

Call it the first So-Fight.

In the instant replay camera angles available to us mere laymen it is difficult to say with any certainty what caused the altercation to break out, escalate to a roiling brawl, become a melee and then erupt into some serious malice in the So-Fi Palace action, complete with at least one cup of liquids being chucked.

But here’s one observation: There can be no denying that whoever he is, we must give him this: In true Aaron Donald-like style, one man takes on several men. Just as his favorite player, All-Pro defensive lineman Aaron Donald, takes on entire offensive lines at times (or so it seems.)

So the above was the first video of the, um “unscheduled event” I happened to watch.

First takeaway: What is up with the pugilist that starts punching the aggressor in his buttocks while the guy is down?

Second takeaway: Alcohol was a contributing factor.

Third takeaway: The dude was holding his own for a long time until he lost the higher ground and then it was curtains.

But later, I saw the battle royal as filmed from a different camera angle:

First and only takeaway: Ursula the Sea Witch walks among us.

I just hope everyone involved is identified by internal SoFi Stadium security camera footage and each and every person involved in the fight is barred for life.

While that does seem like a rather knee-jerk reactionary stance, given the potential for something like this to escalate into a Bryan Stow-like nightmare scenario, the hammer of justice should come down as hard as possible on everyone involved. . . . and be wielded with a wide swath.
