What's With All The NFL Camp Fights This Year?

I'm not sure if there are more fights in NFL camps this year, I actually doubt it, but there certainly is more media than ever and more attention on the things that happen during practice.
For the Packers, it was two assistant coaches; OL coach James Campen and LB coach Winston Moss. Having met Winston Moss once, I'm not at all surprised he was involved; he's a very intense guy. He probably looks like he's ready to go onto the field and tackle someone at every practice. But as the beard comment above indicates, this fight wasn't a big deal.

As for the rest of the goings on in practice this week, I don't want to read much into it whether Julius Peppers is off to a slow start. In his case, he's a player known for taking plays off so it shouldn't be a big surprise that he didn't bring his A Game last week during a monsoon in Tennessee. I'm not expecting to see too much of QB Aaron Rodgers against the Rams on Saturday because keeping all the starters healthy is the No. 1 goal this preseason.
