    Never been punched

    I was talking with some guys at work today and I brought up the fact that I have never gotten punched or punched someone out of anger. I was looked at like I just spoke another language. Apparently I'm in a huge minority here.

    I got into wrestling-type fights as a kid over dumb stuff. I also had someone throw a punch at me during a floor party in Willow, but it was some drunk d-bag and I dodged it easily and shoved him into a wall. Other than that, I've broken up plenty of fights but never really participated.

    Just me?

    Re: Never been punched

    Had a grand total of three fist fights as a young dude. None of which couldn't have been avoided. So maybe you're rare, but not totally?

    I haven't been punched as much as I have probably deserved it.

    Re: Never been punched

    I haven't really since middle school, even that was not really even a fight. I was a bad kid in elementary school; I blame my mom for making me too smart. I've been threatened a few times by a few idiots but you'll have those.

    Re: Never been punched

    I was punched twice a party. I was a lil intoxicated so it didn't really affect and my buddies stopped me before I did anything. My face hurt a bit in the morning.

    It all turned out well, he was kicked outta the party and his friends gave some of his beer. Good times.


    ďUrgency,Ē Rhoads said. ďThatís exactly what I told our staff. Itís exactly what I told our players. Urgency in getting your job done. Thatís in a 100 percent rate of speed at executing your responsibility ó whether itís a fit, whether itís a tackle, whether itís a route, whether itís a cut-off block. Everybody needs a little bit more urgency in coaching and playing.Ē

    Re: Never been punched

    I've never punched anyone or been punched. There have been several times where I would have deserved to be punched, but never happened.

    Re: Never been punched

    Broke my nose twice in "fights"...both times sucker punched. Never thrown a punch but I did use my blackbelt skills to roundhouse a guy in the face.

    Re: Never been punched

    Never involved in a physical conflict with a stranger, but been punched in the face by my brother a couple years back, and have given out my fair share of gut punches to roommates/bullys in HS and during my undergrad. When I say gut punch, it's not necessarily out of respect for the face or hair, but because the recipients of said punches were about a foot taller than me.

    Re: Never been punched

    I can't believe this is that common. I have never been punched or have thrown a punch before.

    Never been in a real fight. Never had a reason to.

    I'd be willing to bet that the percentage of people that have thrown a punch in anger is a lot smaller than the percentage of people that have been punched in anger. Only takes one drunk ******* to punch half the guys at a party. I've been swung at a few times, always by somebody who was drunk. I've never punched anybody on purpose.
