Just saw on Sportscenter where Manny Para and Prince Fielder got into a one sided shoving match in the dugout tonight during the Reds game.
There have been more "public" confrontations this year during games (in my opinion) than in past years. I know that teams have problems with each other during seasons but it was taken care of in the clubhouse. Why is players now do it right away in the dugout instead of waiting to be alone with the rest of the team?
Does things like Sportscenter hurt because John Kruk mentions this sometimes being a positive thing (which I agree it sometimes can) because it gets things out in the air? Younger guys / kids hear this and think if it's happening then it's ok to do it.
Or could it be that media coverage is so thick there is no way to NOT see it on TV or net? It still happened back in the day but the media didn't pick up on all of it.
