Former Miami Football Player-Turned Announcer Praises Brawl

Surprisingly, this time the former Miami player, who went on TV and praised the sort of indefensible acts that he used to commit, was not Michael Irvin. It was Lamar Thomas, who said:

"Now, that's what I'm talking about," Thomas said as the brawl raged out of control. "You come into our house, you should get your behind kicked. You don't come into the OB playing that stuff. You're across the ocean over there. You're across the city. You can't come over to our place talking noise like that. You'll get your butt beat. I was about to go down the elevator to get in that thing."
That's a lot worse than what Steve Lyons said, if you ask me.
