Duke Football Player Loses Fight To Duke Lacrosse Player

According to Andrew Beaton of the Duke Chronicle Duke football wide receiver, Johnell Barnes, suffered injuries from a fight with Sophomore middie, John Shaffer. Shaffer, who has Barnes beat in size by 2″ and 10 lbs, apparently had an altercation with the Freshman football player at 1am in popular Durham bar, Shooters. Barnes has been seen wearing a cast around campus. Both coaches have declined to comment.

Shaffer is a Delbarton product who registered two goals in his Freshman campaign. Barnes is the main kickoff returner for the Blue Devils. Bar fights happen more often than you think. Hopefully both parties have squashed it.

    I agree with MR3, why is this a story. The title alone makes it seem as if it’s supposed to be cool they fought. No one cares. Immature journalism.

    With recent negative PR of lacrosse players have received (Cornell, Marquette, Auburn)….does publishing a “story” about a fight a lacrosse player was in sounds like a good idea???

    This has nothing to do with the game. Why publish, let alone hype, another example of off-field violence by a lacrosse player?
