Ticats have big scrap at practice

Frustration is boiling over for the Hamilton Tiger-Cats.

At the team’s practice in Calgary on Tuesday offensive and defensive players engaged in a large scale brawl that involved several members on both sides of the ball.

It started when quarterback Zach Collaros got into an altercation with a defensive player that led to some pushing and shoving. On the next play, all hell broke loose.

Guard Ryan Bomben and defensive tackle Davon Coleman were engaged in a serious scrap and players from both sides quickly joined in. It took coaches and players from both sides several minutes to calm things down.

The Ticats are currently 0-5 and coming off a humiliating 60-1 loss to the Calgary Stampeders. They remained in Calgary this week before heading to Edmonton to play the undefeated Eskimos on Friday night.
