NFL threatening significant punishment for fights that occur before and during games: report

The NFL has reportedly sent a stern warning to teams about players involved in fights before or during games. 

ESPN obtained a memo on Sunday from the league to all 32 teams, which stated fighting “is irreconcilable” and “never acceptable.”

“These actions send an inappropriate and unacceptable message to players, coaches and fans at all other levels of the game.”

While the NFL didn’t discipline anyone in any fight last week, this memo warns that discipline should be handed out in the coming weeks if something were to go down. 

Scott Thompson is a sports writer for Fox News Digital.
