    I've got to agree with what prelag states - other then self-protection, it isn't the best move to insert yourself in a fight.
    This might have been a different outcome if the police were called imediately upon signs of the problem escalating.

    I don't know the guy but I enjoy reading BFS posts and wish him a speedy recovery.

    While I agree the smart thing to do is to wait for the police to show up - that isn't always the right thing to do. If there was a knife involoved then who knows maybe BFS saved some other guys life by getting involved. While it sucks for him to be where he is now, who can predict what could/would have happened had he not intervened.

    I dont think it is necessary to sit lecture right now. Neither of you know the story.

    I am biting my tongue right now because the response i want to give both of these posts will get me banned.

  • Yeah, come on. In that situation your first instinct IS to step in and help, not call the police and wait 15 minutes for them to show up when some serious damage could have already been done. You did the right thing BFS, be proud of what you did! Get well soon man, I'll be prayin' for ya.

    Guys, I appreciate the manner that you intend with your advice, but this isn't the place for it. Keep this for well wishes for a friend in need please. I know your not trying to be disrespectful, so take that discussion into the lounge. Thanks.

  • I hate hearing stories like this. My prayers are with you BFS and I hope you have a speedy recovery.

    A few months ago I made a post about myself breaking up a fight and being assaulted because I intervened. I was in the hospital for 2 weeks and BFS gave me some good advice on these boards about being proud that I stood up for the person that was being attacked. My heart goes out to you BFS, get well soon bro :thirishdrinkers:

  • Hello my fellow 12th Man and thank you for the 5 pages of

    I am BFS/Leif's younger brother. I am sitting in the hospital right now.

    here is the story - Leif was at a bar in downtown minneapolis watching the vikings packers game. there was the usual banter between opposing fans and nothing much was happening, late in the game it became more intense and a vikes and pack fan started getting more heated and leif stepped in and separated them, the bartender told each party to go to separate ends of the bar and the groups were separated, leif later made eye contact with the packer fan and he (pack fan) motioned with a head nod to meet him outside, since leif was the peacemaker and had no beef with the guy and was the one who separated the two leif figured the guy just wanted to have a smoke and apologize and make peace, leif went outside and the guy had his back turned and leif said "what's up" and the guy turned around and stabbed him in the lower left-side of his abdomen, leif initially thought he was punched and then looked down and realized the guy stabbed him, he said to the guy "are you serious?! you f'n stabbed me?!" he then stumbled back into the bar and doesnt remember much from there.

    he is very very lucky, the wound missed his intestines, kidney, liver everything, the stab actually knicked but didnt sever his intestine, had it cut it, he could have suffered septic poisoning, the doctors had to cut him open and squeeze his internal organs to check for punctures and leakage so he is also experiencing pain from that too, there is about a 12 inch incision from below his belly button to his zyphoid.

    leif is in a lot of pain, he is doing much better today but by no means is in the clear, they switched up his meds and they seem to be working much more today, he can speak more clear and his thoughts seem to be more coherent, it is not pretty and he is expected to be in here 3-7 days.

    i'm sure he will hop on at some point to update everyone more but that is the story and the status update for now.

    Again, thank you to everyone for the concern. Myself, our family, and Leif greatly appreciate it.

    Go Seahawks!

    Having the info as to what actually happened helps on this end. Gee, I've always respected Packer fans.....oh well. I hope he at least "glittered" the guy.
