Bench-clearing brawl erupts between NYC police and firefighters at charity hockey game

brawlYou’ve got to be kidding, right?

A bench-clearing brawl between New York City police and firefighters marred a charity hockey game Sunday at the Nassau Coliseum, The New York Post reported.

“It was reminiscent of the old-time Rangers-Flyers games in the mid-’70s,” said an NYPD cop who was at the game.“I was waiting for Dave Schultz [a legendary Flyers player] to come out on the ice.”

The fight erupted in the second period while the game was tied, resulting in a 25-minute delay, according to the Post.

One fan who said he had been coming to the charity games for 20 years told the Post he had never seen a bench-clearing brawl before.

Aside from some ejections, there are no reports of any players being charged, which indicates that it is legal in New York to beat the crap out of one another, so long as it occurs in the pretext of a “hockey game.”

NYPD eventually won the game, 8-5, breaking a five game winning stretch by FDNY.
