Bill Belichick kicks out two Patriots for fighting

Early in training camp, New England Patriots coach Bill Belichickforced his team to run laps after a particularly annoying series of fights. We haven't heard of too many problems in Patriots camp since then ... until Thursday.

Wide receiver Julian Edelman and linebacker Niko Koutouvides threw down at practice Thursday and Belichick promptly tossed them out.

It's fair to wonder how much coaches really mind camp fights. It's part of August, but there's a line where it crosses towards getting in the team's way. It's fair to say Belichick thought that line was crossed Thursday and didn't waste time letting his players know.
