Bench-Clearing Brawl Between Pirates, Brewers

Cole should've been tossed, also...it's his delicate sensibilities that started the whole thing. Gomez was looking, out of the box, at either a home run or a fly out.

Lucic was fined $5,000 for intentionally spearing Dekeyser in the crotch. Quenneville was fined $25,000 for grabbing his own. NHL discipline at its finest.

I believe $5000 is the max a player can be fined, per the CBA. Coaches have no such protections...

That's totally incorrect. After the 1967 expansion, Original Six teams still faced each other 6 more times in the next 12 seasons. The last time was in 1979 (Canadiens vs. Rangers).
