SYMPOSIUM SLUGGERS IDENTIFIED

Posted by Mike Florio on July 2, 2008, 10:51 p.m. EDT

We ve been able to confirm via two sources the names of the rookies who were involved in a symposium slugfest.

The players were Aqib Talib and Cory Boyd. Talib was a first-round pick of the Buccaneers; Boyd was a seventh-round selection of the same team.

The players were in a budget and finances meeting, where rookies from four teams were gathered. Talib and Boyd had been jawing at each other for a while, and it came to a head during that specific session.

Few are surprised by the development. Boyd was suspended by South Carolina coach Steve Spurrier in 2005. Boyd was forced to apologize upon returning in 2006, after scoring a touchdown and uttering for the camera, I m back! I m back liked cooked crack!

Talib s draft stock fell due to repeated positive drug test results while at Kansas. As one league source explained Talib to us on Wednesday night, Trouble just follows Talib. . . . He can t help himself, and it s never his fault.

It s unknown whether the players were or will be disciplined.

It's so true. I can't tell you the amount of times I've been in a benefits meeting at my job, and someone takes a swing at someone else. Yeah, a 401k is great, but doesn't really help you save if you have to pay to have your teeth replaced. ;)

Agreed! It raises a bunch of questions. Then again it's the Bucs, so I really don't have to think about it. Just sit back and enjoy the show. :D

You clowns must be reaching for something becuase this is a non-issue.

Keep having fun with it, anything that makes you forget about your horrid franchise has to be looked at as positive

Contrary to statements and intonements made by certain media sources (one of which being ProFootballTalk.com, the other more local), the supposed "fight" between Bucs Rookies Talib and Boyd are greatly exagerated.

According to a source close ot the situation, heated words were exchanged and the two men may have gotten in one another's faces, but that's as far as it went before Rob Davis (The Packers Director of Development) stepped between them.

Tempers were still flaring as they left the room, and they exchanged a couple words (from a distance) as they left.

That's as far as the incident went. There was no fight at all. No swinging of punches.
