Having watched the video of the brawl, once again, and at the risk of beating this dead horse once again, I think LaRue "had it coming" to him, if you will. In the middle of one of many excuses supplied by Tim McCarver in regards to Carpenter getting knocked around a little bit, they showed the clip again with a spotlight on Cueto. Jason LaRue was clearly coming after Cueto when he got it in the chops. Johnny was pinned against the net, with no other choice but to defend.
Now I have to call my cable operator because my television continues to have a "whiney beyotch" on my Fox affiliate out of Lexington, KY.
