Another Detroit Brawl?

Yep, it happened again. Another brawl at the Palace, only this time it's a WNBA brawl. If you haven't seen it already, here's a video of the fight and some breakdowns of what happened:

This is, of course, terrible for not just the WNBA, but also the NBA (the NBA is already considered somewhat dirty and it could be leaking over into the WNBA). When the best player in your league, Candace Parker, is involved, it becomes tough to suspend her and still have a well represented league. I don't know much about the WNBA, but if this begins a trend, they will have to take action.

I would suspend Parker 10 games. I know there will be plenty of other suspensions also. Rick Mahorn claims he didn't push Lisa Leslie, but it certainly looks like he did. It's a big mess; we'll just have to wait for the league to dole out suspensions.
