Throughout sports, there is a lot of tension between certain players or teams. Whether it is just a heated rivalry or something happened between the two sides in the past, there is no way to avoid this.
When the two sides matchup, there is a lot of tension. This usually ends up in an altercation of some sort.
Denver Broncos’ Cornerback Aqib Talib and Oakland Raiders’ Wide Reciever Michael Crabtree really know how to make this a reality.
During the first quarter of Sunday’s game in Oakland, a fight broke out between the two rivals. The fight got started after Talib reached out and snatched Crabtree’s necklace from his neck. This ended in both the players getting ejected and having to leave the field.
This might have been a big fight, but this isn’t their first rodeo.
In week 17 of the 2016 NFL season, this same incident happened between the two rivals.
“They have a little bit of a history with the chain snatching” -Raiders’ Coach Jack Del Rio
This altercation from Sunday’s Game led to a Two-game ban for both of the players. This did not make Oakland Coach’ Jack Del Rio very happy.
🤔Hard to understand the reasoning for this judgement based on most recent ruling w/ altercation see WR Cin and DB Jax = 0 games suspended https://t.co/jH9cZRecPn

Del Rio is confused on how this altercation is any worse than the one between Cincinnati WR A.J. Green and Jacksonville Jaguars’ Defensive Back Jalen Ramsey.
Crabtree and Talib got a two-game ban while Ramsey and Green ended up with no suspension.
I guess we can say the NFL snatched this one from them.
