Yep... I totally agree. Rather than turn it to something A LOT worse for the team, he avoided escalation. Divens had his wits about him. Of course, this kind of behavior would prevent fatal violence in many situations, but so many young ones are concerned with being "Dissed" that they feel the need to keep it "real", just like the Chappelle show.
plus its a opportunity for the kids to puff out their chest on the zone and tell us what THEY would have done

what type of time could brooks face?
I don't think he'll do any time because the victim isn't pressing charges. If he gets convicted of anything, felony or misdemeanor, he'll probably get a suspended sentence with some kind of community service and the stipulation that he has to go into a class to help him stop drinking. But, that probably will get him a three or four game suspension with the NFL.
The smart thing to do, the right thing to do is cop to it, apologize, take the anger management and alchohol awareness counseling with a good attitude, and try to do better for yourself, family and teammates. Wouldn't that be astonishing. Don't go Hernandez on this Brooksie.
