Yea well where are the other 65 people who were involved? Did this guy take on 65 people. I think its ridiculous how its all over the tv and newspaper. Is this the first fight on a football field?

Why has Oakland made their statements but Bergenfield still hasnt? We have only heard one side of the story so nobody should be judging anybody. Oakland also said that Bergenfield started the fight but I dont believe that because Bergenfield was winning so why would they start a fight? I just think this is so over rated and Oakland has nothing better to do. Also where were the refs that were supposed to break it up? They should have broke it up before it got out of control. The other coaches got suspended from 2 games and they fought but they only went after 1 coach when other coaches were involved in it.

ok listen im actually on the oakland team .... i agree about one thing with ur story that it is stupid to have all this shit on TV and in newspapers. this is the truth of what happened. after a long game of frustration bad team spirit ( from oaklands reactions and bergenfields late hits) after a play ther was a late hit from bergenfield, the oakland player pushed back, then more bergenfield players came after the oakland player, next the oakland player did throw the first punch, however the bergenfield players instigated it so really both teams were responsable. after that the kids started fighting and the bergenfield coach ran out (suposedly becasue the kid was his son) the oakland coaches saw some adult running out on the field and thaught somehting bad was going to happen and ran out, but when the bergenfield coaches arm raised into the air the oakland coaches first instinct was to get hom off of the kid. (im not saying the bergenfield coach was going to hit the kid then and there but that is how it was seen)after that the all the bergenfield players ran out onto the field and attacked, responding to this the oakland team ran onto the field and started fighting back. it was not a good thing becasue it got soo out of hand that adults were hitting kids. In the reffs deffence ther was no way the could have stopped all these people. eventually the fight was broken up. From my point of view do i think bergenfield was wrong .. yes ... but thats becasue its from my side of view, i cant judge the other players becasue i dont know there side. however one of our on coaches is actually from bergenfield so i got some reviews from him. in conclusion no one was completely rigt here, oakland threw the first punch and bergenfield instigated it. Dont blame oakland saying they have nothign better to do, and dont say it was all bergenfields fault ... one thing i will say however is ... it will be fun playing them again in high school.

Turns out at this game the alleged coach throwing punches from bergenfield did not throw a punch at all. It seems a video turned up that proved this and showed apee wee coach from Oakland attacked a kid from the Bergenfield seior team out of frustration from the beating they were getting. All charges were dropped against the Bergenfield coach. Gee and I wonder what happened to the Oakland pee wee coach that attacked the kid from Bergenfield.NOTHING because the guy who runs the league just happens to be from Oakland and most of the police department from Oakland know him or more than likely played for him in their youth. I am sure the coach on the attack is still coaching because it was just a big deflection on the part of the Oakland p.d.A--H--ES!!

yEAH WHAT HAPPENED WAS THAT THE KID FOM BERGENFIELD HAD A TIFF IN THE END ZONE WITH A KID FROM OAKLAND BECAUSE THE KID FROM OAKLAND WAS FRUSTRATED CAME AFTER THE KID FROM BERGENFIELD WHO HAPPENED TO BE RANKED NATIONALLY INWRESTLING THREW THE KID FROM OAKLAND TO THE GROUND WHEN A PEE WEE COACH FROM OAKLAND RAN INTO THE END ZONE HIT THE KID FROM BERGENFIELD WHICH FUELED THE COACH FROM BERGENFIELD WHO'S SON IT HAPPENED TO BE!!! THIS WHOLE THING WAS SET UP TO MAKE BERGENFIELD THE BAD GUYS!!WHEN IN TRUTH I WAS THERE AND SAW THE VIDEO. AGAIN THIS HAS BEEN NOTHING BUT A DEFLECTION OF WHO WAS REALLY RESPONSIBLE FOR THE ALTERCATION. THE CHARGES WERE MYSTERIOUSLY DROPPED AGAINST THE BERGENFIELD COACH ONCE THE VIDEO SHOWED THE WHOLE SCENARIO. I WONDER WHY WE NEVER HEARD ABOUT THE ACTUAL INSTIGATOR OF THIS DESPICABLE ACTION AGAINST A KID
