Video of Decatur Football Fight?

I've got word that Fox 4 is thinking about doing a story on the Decatur football brawl but is searching for a video  of it.

Anyone?

Obviously the two schools do because the coaches had to be rolling game footage. Don't make Fox 4 do an Open Records Request.

This is not really news worthy, happens about 5-6 times a week all across the state unfortunately. Let it go people.

Who gives a damn about any of this? It sounds like it was just a little fight...no big deal...

This should intimidate future opponents

I don't know why its such a big deal. Fights at sporting events break out all the time. Bench-clearing brawls in baseball games, hockey fights. Just part of what goes on.

If someone from the other teams does something "outside the lines" to one of your teammates, you better kick his *ss.

just like someone from decatur trying to sugarcoat it.. if this would have happen in bridgeport or paradise or boyd.. you would want neighbors, henson and cartwrights heads to roll...just admit people from decatur,,when everything is going great theiir infront of the cameras..if its bad they make excusses to sugar coat it or run and hide..

It IS news worthy. And wherever it happens, they usually run a news story about it. Too bad if it makes your kid/school look bad

A fight is important. Everyone else is doing it? That's justification?

Let's wait on the UIL report. The Decatur program is known for it's personal fouls, unsportmanlike penalties ets. That needs to be addressed from the Supt to AD.

Just another example of how the Decatur Aristocracy wants to cover up/deny anything that indicates their kids are like the others in the county. Reminds me of Col. Jessup,"You want the truth? You can't handle the truth!"

I heard that our kids were attacked and only defended themselves. I am good with that.

Go Eagles

You make me Proud!

They also need to talk about the gang fight between Lake Worth and Castleberry the week before.
I talked to a Lake Worth police officer after the Decatur game and he told us Castleberry came to Lake Worth with knives and guns to a fifth quarter, several were arrested from Castleberry.
And for you Decatur haters,if one of your bulls was on the ground with his helmet off and three Castelberry players punching and kicking them on the ground. Your sideline would come to help. Castleberry had one ejected in the first quarter. Decatur held is composer for thee quarters. After the the ejections of the Castleberry kids there were no more problems on the field. If you didn't see the game
SHUT UP you bulls will get to play in gang land next year.

Sounds like our middle child, short-man complex neighbors to our West have some issues.

From what I understand, this happens at Castleberry all the time, hence all the police officers at the game. I was there and wondered why there was such a presence of police when we arrived. Now I know! If you were to see video all you would see is the Decatur boys defending themselves. The Castleberry boys were triple teaming players, taking them to the ground and punching them. I would hope that any team would feel that they had to defend themselves and their teammates against such. All you people that hate Decatur and school administration, etc. can try all you want to make it into something that we are at fault for, but next time maybe you should be at the game so you can see for yourself. The parking lot arrests of Castleberry parents ought to tell you something!

"not really news worthy"
"Let it go "
"no big deal"

If your team isn't at fault, then I would think that you'd want as much coverage as possible to prove that the other team was responsible for the trouble. Otherwise, it looks as if you're trying to sweep something under the rug

You should check your Bulls schedule, Bridgeport DID play in "gang land" this year. Unlike Decatur, our boys kept their focus on why we were there, TO PL.AY FOOTBALL.

The bulls did play in Castleberry this year and guess what....no fights in our game.

Walked a block to my car on the west side of Barnes Stadium after Bridgeport/Castleberry game - never felt threatened. Stopped and waited for Castleberry players to go thru the stadium gate after the loss - they stopped and told me to go ahead. When you treat people with respect - as I was by waiting for them to get out the gate - it's amazing how they respond. If I were guessing ... Decatur was mouthing and probably had been all week on FB and other sites not to mention on the field.

I went to a game with friends one time to watch Gainesville play Decatur.....the Decatur coaches were asses and the players were just about as bad.

"Decatur coaches were asses" - I am sorry you were given a bad impression of them. I must respectfully dissent. Decatur coaches are not asses. They are honorable and respectable individuals. Thank you and goodnight.

Their behavior reflects the disrespect the board shows for the district staff. What a sad situation. The place has become a laughing stock across the state.

Will be interesting to see what the UIL rules about the fight. Wonder when that will be. Spring?

I was at the game. There was a lot of jawing the whole game. When the fight broke out, it was hard to tell exactly what happened. There were fights that broke out all over.

My kids at the high school say there are videos of the brawl over the high school. A lot of them have the video on their computers. Shouldn't be too tough to come up with one.

decatur kids are a bunch of mouthy lil F heads neways, thats all they do is run their mouth, even when they r loosing, so im guessing it wasnt bc the Castleberry kids just wanted to fight! Hey Eagles, keep ur damn mouths shut!

Fox 4's Brandon Todd reported on a story at that Castleberry school not too long ago. I saw him and honked at him while he was on the air. In all honesty I wanted to do more like dancing around in back of him and in the camera shot.

As I read these posts, I'm realizing it's no wonder our kids act like they do - when adults set such a pitiful example! Go back and read all of the little kindergarten rants that have been posted on here concerning Decatur this morning!

I live in Bridgeport, and I don't understand why people from Bridgeport and Decatur feel like they have to hate each other! Yes, I understand the whole "we-play-better-than-you-do" banter regarding sports. We live so close and yes, there is a certain rivalry that exists. But, for the life of me, I just don't understand why those from one city feel as though they have to HATE the other city!

I was not at the game, so I only have hear-say information concerning it. But, no, I am not going to assume that Decatur is a horrible school, with horrible administrators, and horrible coaches because there was a fight on the field. And for those of you who assume that just because Decatur was involved, they are the problem.....one day you might be surprised to see your own child involved in such a situation. And when that time comes, would you really want to see all of those hateful comments on this blog from people who were not even involved and have no clue of what really happened?

Grow up and set a decent example for your kids to follow.

Why do you think this is coming from Bridgeport? We are far superior to such, and have already successfully kicked Decatur's butt, so why would be care? sheesh

9:43 ASSUME = makes a ass- u- me and the STACKED Decatur School Board. Still no turf vote from me.. DHS class of 76 (Blue & White) football player back when we were Good.

To combine this story with the Barnett Shale story---you cannot buy class!

So you're saying that mouthing doesn't normally go on at a game??? Does that give a player the right to throw a punch? Maybe it was just a lack of discipline or self-control on the part of the Castleberry players,that evidently from the beginning of the game, started throwing punches. Just sayin, mouthing goes on all the time! I wasn't there, but geesh...

I believe the Eagles have a little fight in them yet!

I bet Luttrull will support continuing this failure.

One and done!

Well I am a player for castleberry and I played the entire game that night against Decatur and I have never played a team that talks as much as the eagles. Number 50 was swinging at me constantly do I began to defend myself back in response. I wasn't involved in the actual brawl, but from what I saw Decatur took it over board and WE defended ourselves. Obviously we didn't instigate the fight due to the fact that we had 4 players ejected compared to Decaturs handful, including number 50. And castleberry is not threatening or a "gangland" we show class in every sport we play, but when a team disrespects us, we respond back. Referring back to the bridgeport game, they kicked our butts, but they showed the greatest respect and we went out with handshakes and high fives.

Well, i am a Castleberry Football player and i did play that night against Decatur and i have never played a team that talks as much trash as the Eagles. The guy i was going up against swung at me in the 2nd quarter or so, so i reacted the following plays by playing dirty also. I wasnt involved in the actual brawl, but from i saw, Decatur took it over board and started to push around one of my team mates, and we had enough and WE defended ourselves, then Decaturs sideline went from 50 something to probably 7 or 8 cleaning the benches. Obviously Castleberry didnt start the fight hence the fact that we had about 4 players ejected compared to Decatur's Handful. Castleberry is not threatening or a "gangland", the rumors about gang fights against other teams is completely false. We show class in everything we do, but if a team disrespects us, we respond. Going back to the Bridgeport game, they kicked our butts, but we handled it because they showed respect and we ended the game with handshakes and high fives. WE may have lost on the scoreboard, but WE WON the war on the field:) Thank you.
