ANIMATED: Falcons-Bucs Fight Ends After Donald Penn Shove Of Dunta Robinson

The Atlanta Falcons are playing, which means somebody somewhere is mad at Dunta Robinson. This time around, it's Donald Penn and the entire Tampa Bay Buccaneers organization. Below, a GIF of the enormous Penn two-hand shoving Robinson, concluding a scrap that sprang up at the end of a blowout:



The fracas emerged after Robinson belted a Bucs receiver who didn't appear to be anywhere close to catching the ball. Said receiver popped up and loomed above Robinson, swatting him in the back of the helmet. This drew a shove from Robinson, a shove in return, lots of milling around, and Penn's mighty heave before Christopher Owens, Curtis Lofton, and others were able to get Robinson back to the sideline, where John Abraham and Mike Smith gave him various talkings-to.

He's now out of the game. As he didn't exactly throw any punches, he shouldn't be suspended for next week's playoff game. But it's always something, isn't it?
