There is some animosity growing in the City of Angels right now, and it’s going to make for a fun storyline as the 2017 NFL season approaches.
On Wednesday, the Los Angeles Chargers and the Los Angeles Rams held a joint practice, and things got more than chippy.
Fox Sports’ Lisa Lane caught a video of a brawl that broke out after Rams cornerback Trumaine Johnson and Chargers wide receiver Dontrelle Inman got into it following a pass interference call.
Keenan Allen decided to go full Goldberg and spear Rams defensive back Nickell Robey-Coleman. It might cost Allen a chunk of change, but he should be glad he didn’t get hurt in the scuffle. With as many injuries as he’s suffered in his career already, the Chargers can’t afford for Allen to get hurt in a joint-practice brawl.
However, the fighting didn’t end there. Things heated back up in a hurry, and the Los Angeles Times‘ Lindsey Thiry managed to hit the record button in time to catch the second round of the Chargers-Rams tag-team match.
With as much tension as there is right now between the two L.A. teams, who ironically weren’t L.A. teams as early as two years ago, it’s pretty disappointing that we have to wait until Aug. 26 to watch them go head-to-head on national T.V.
The Rams’ are gearing up for their first preseason game against Dallas on Saturday, and the Chargers are preparing to take on the Seahawks on Sunday.
