Fight breaks out at Steelers' OTAs

The Steelers’ organized team activities were enlivened on Tuesday by a fight between rookie wide receiver Antonio Brown and second-year cornerback Keenan Lewis.

Ed Bouchette of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette described the fight as “a nice exchange of punches to each other’s facemask.”

“It’s just competitive nature,” Brown said. “Guys are fighting, there’s high intensity. But we’re all on the team. We’re all Steelers.”

Veteran wide receiver Antwaan Randle El told Brown, “you’ve go to know where to punch,” and Brown acknowledged that hitting someone in the facemask isn’t a very good idea.

“I could have broken my hand,” Brown said.

    They were fighting over who gets to be on the receiving end of Big Ben’s next drunken rager.

    Not so sure I’d be fighting to get Ben’s sticky seconds tbh.

    ARE giving advice on fighting is amusing. I’m sure in the back of his mind he’s thinking “Stupid rookie. How can you wave for a fair catch when you have a broken hand?!?”

    *Insert obligatory ill-informed Roethlisberger joke here*

    Good luck to the other teams. It will be nice to finally watch some football.

    Ahh, nothing says “I’m a moronic meathead” more than swapping punches to the facemask.

    Wow crappy wr vs. Crappy CB?
    LOL don’t matter they both suck

    Roethlisraper was upset there were no girls to assault… And turned on his teammates

  14. highjak78 says: Jun 2, 2010 8:37 AM

    You mean it’s a SURPRISE when you put a bunch of wife-beaters, rapists, crackheads, drunks, and steroid abusers together and they fight? NO WAY! Good luck Sqeelers – have fun in the basement this year! HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!

    You may as well just officially make this a Steelers site, because everyone reading it and writing on it would rather hear about them than anyone else I guess. This happens all the time and because it was in Pittsburgh it gets written about. These guys dont even play!!!!
    Let the love affair go already!

    LOL, yeah, neither one of them can hold a candle to the no talent ass clown typing on his computer claiming they suck. LMAO at the big man who feels compelled to knock a rookie and a second year player on a team notorious for developing guys and not thrusting them into games too soon.
    They made the NFL, what the hell have you done with your life?

    @RayLewisKillsPeople
    LOL. How do you know the folks that are commenting are Ravens fans? The Bengals and Browns fans think the Stoolers are the scum of the earth to.
    Nice try at deflection though. This is about your thugged out team and how poorly they have been run lately. So go back to your corner and cry your little eyes out while you watch the piss stain and black self destruct.

  20. BonnieD says: Jun 2, 2010 9:35 AM

    I don’t like the Steelers, but even I don’t think this story is newsworthy. Happens ALL the time, especially between WRs and CBs.

  21. robmart0906 says: Jun 2, 2010 9:47 AM

    @RayLewisKillsPeople
    hey genius, that “overrated qb” is actually 3-2 in the playoffs. obviously you havent had your coffee this morning.
    anyways, this isnt newsworthy. there’s always a fight in OTAs and minicamps

  22. steveinohio says: Jun 2, 2010 9:52 AM

    the only thing missing was the old helmet removal, just before the fight…dumb rookies.
    oh yeah,almost forgot… Ben Rapistberger.

  23. robert ethen says: Jun 2, 2010 10:11 AM

    Failing to do any damage to Lewis’ helmet, Brown took out his frustration by punching out the blocking sleds.

  24. Tony Snow says: Jun 2, 2010 10:12 AM

    No wonder most of these posters know nothing about football ….they’re all working on their comedy routine! (Drumroll …please!)

  25. Otto Graham says: Jun 2, 2010 10:22 AM

  26. brownsfn says: Jun 2, 2010 10:27 AM

  29. RayLewisKillsPeople says: Jun 2, 2010 11:03 AM

    robmart..
    u are correct..
    overrated Flacco is 3-2..
    yr 1..Dolphins game- played terrible..
    Titans game- was bad as well
    Steelers- was AWFUL
    yr 2.. Patriots game- AWFUL
    Colts game- AWFUL>
    for someone with A big arm, he underthrows more wr;s than anyone in the league..
    Flacco sucks..He may be a good guy, but i will take Big Ben and his baggage over that stiff Flacco
