Video: Zac Rinaldo Was Mic'd Up During Crombeating, Later Asks Ref If He Was Dirty

Even for the most staunch supporter of fighting in hockey, watching Zac Rinaldo connect with blow after blow to B.J. Crombeen's face last night was a pretty brutal sight. In real time, many also questioned whether Rinaldo was still landing punches once Crombeen was down on the ice. Rinaldo apparently wondered as well, and asked the referee after the fight if he did anything wrong. The ref then clears him of any guilt, noting Crombeen was still on his way down to the ice when Rinaldo landed the final blows.

So while Zac Rinaldo appears to be a mad man at times, the kind that you often want on your favorite hockey team to mix things up, I suppose it's good to know he appears to want to stick to whatever fighting code there seems to be between two hockey players.

Also, it's just damn fun to watch a guy mic'd up get into a brawl.

NBA draft prospect Josh Jackson pleads guilty to misdemeanor for hitting car

NBA draft prospect Josh Jackson pleads guilty to misdemeanor for hitting car

LAWRENCE, Kan. -- Former University of Kansas basketball player Josh Jackson pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor traffic violation for backing into a car and driving away.

The Lawrence Journal-World reports that Jackson entered his plea Tuesday in Lawrence Municipal Court to striking an unattended vehicle. Two other charges, inattentive driving and improper backing, were dismissed.

Jackson, who is expected to be a top draft pick in next month's NBA draft, will be on probation for six months and must pay a $250 fine. If he violates his probation, Jackson would have to serve 30 days in jail.

Coach Bill Self suspended Jackson for the opening game of the Big 12 Tournament because of the incident.

The 6-foot-8 Jackson has now resolved two cases that had dogged him during his lone year at Kansas. He earlier reached a diversion agreement that requires him to attend anger management classes, write a letter of apology and refrain from using alcohol or recreational drugs for a year for his confrontation with a Jayhawks women's basketball player last year.

Jackson had pleaded not guilty to a misdemeanor count of criminal property damage after he argued with McKenzie Calvert on Dec. 9 outside a bar in Lawrence. He signed the diversion agreement on April 26.

Allen Iverson shares a tale of Michael Jordan trash talking Aaron McKie

It appears the Big3 League media blitz is already underway.

Allen Iverson and his Killer 3s team doesn't start play until the end of June and doesn't roll through Philadelphia until the middle of July, but that hasn't stopped the Answer from doing a little promo for the gimicky league.

A.I. sat down with actor and general hoops junkie Michael Rapaport for Fox Sports 1 for a segment that will air next month but they shared a teaser online.

In it, the topic of trash talking comes up. Iverson says he wasn't much of a talker himself but witnessed plenty from the likes of Michael Jordan who used intimidation to get to Aaron McKie.
