B. Banks (US Presswire)
The details of the Brandon Banks nightclub stabbing are starting to emerge, and it doesn’t shed great light on the Redskins punt returner. The “superficial wounds” Banks suffered were more serious than initially reported (which explains why Banks wound up staying in the hospital through Monday).

What’s more, Banks and his friend, Christopher Nixon (who was severely wounded) appear to have been the instigators in the fight. NBC 4 of Washington reports that security cameras show Nixon throwing the first punch.

The stabber was 24-year-old Jason Shorter. After Nixon’s punch was thrown, a club bouncer stepped in to break things up. But Shorter pulled a knife anyway and attacked Banks and Nixon. Banks got sliced in the torso region; Nixon was cut in the face.

All this took place before Banks and Nixon even entered the club. Shorter was charged with one count of assault with a weapon. Charges could be coming for Banks and Nixon, pending an investigation.

Banks is a product of his environment but not the way in which you might imagine.

You know how NFL players chip at one another after a play?... They get all bad ass and go face to face with one another while wearing a full suit of pads and a helmet ? Knowing full well a pseudo authority figure, the referee, will step in - even though in actuality there is no way in hell he could stop two well conditioned NFL athletes from assaulting one another if they wanted to? Well, that's what I'm talkin' about!

Banks and his buddy Nixon start chippin' at Shorter outside the club. Nixon throws a punch. The bouncer intervenes. Banks thinks it's over. But the bouncer isn't a referee and Shorter could give a blip anyway - this ain't the NFL. Shorter pulls a knife and welcomes Banks and his buddy to the CLUB.

If you are rich, famous, and arrogant, stay out of nightclubs.  All bad sports stories contain the word nightclub or bar in them.

Thankfully Brandon Banks' companion was named Christopher Nixon.

These internet reporters are worse than tabloid gossips.

Worse these tabloid gossipers are also writing about football and have a whole generation thinking that QBs are assigned wins like MLB pitchers...

The rest of the team doesn't matter at all, so why even write a story about anything but QBs?

Or is Christopher Dixon Dennis Dixon's QB brother?

Now that would be news...

Wow...what a surprise.  I can't believe this pleasant young man could actually be instigating a fight outside of a bar.  Surely the cameras must be mistaken.

The local ABC affiliate is reporting that cell phone video of the incident shows Banks throwing the first punch. It is unclear when the knife was pulled by the report but it is implied that it was after the first punch was thrown. Unfortunately, ABC did not publish the video so it is hard to ascertain the credibility of the report.

Of course, Haynesworth's fondling incident is getting more play than this much more serious incident by local washington media.

Lets see here. You have battery vs assault with a deadly weapn and possibly attempted manslaughter. Both of which have nothing to do with Banks other than him defending his friend. Man, he sure looks screwed. These assmouth internet reporters are worse than tabloid gossips.
