LOL! None of us feel "sorry" for the man... he's gonna get paid, y'all! He's just been handed a blank check, it's just a shame for him the check is from a washed up never was who doesn't have the vast resources to go after of, say, a Jay Z or a Bruce Springstein.
I just think you lose your man card if you start a fight and then lose and then sue. Sure you're legally in the right. Sure the other guy started the fight, you even have a little bit of moral ground, but that's no man.
If you think getting flipped off is grounds for a fight, then you are truly an idiot and don't need to be around regular people.
But if you flip someone off for 10 minutes and then NOT expect a fight you're an idiot. That's how fights start. You can't start a fight and then cry about it later.

So, if I was at a football game and I stood up for a quarter with my middle finger up and the Middle Linebacker jumped into the stands and beat my ass would that be ok? That is what happened. Screw punk culture or any of that other crap with these guys. Ness is not 'punk rock' anymore unless the band is still living in a 20 year old van.
I cannot say that the guy in the crowd was wrong. Did it trigger someone, yeah, and after thinking about it there should be no law suit but criminal charges would be fine with me. It is battery. If I walked up to you on the street and beat the # out of you I would be in jail. If you gave me the finger and did it I would be in jail.
