A friend of mine knows the "Eddie" fellow personally. Like "EllayAllDay" said, the person knocked out was groping females. He obviously was acting a fool in the club which is shown in the video. He in fact attempted to grope "Eddies" wife.
I don't know if many of you Men on this board have much balls. If a man attempted to sexually assault my wife, that to me is a well-justified reason to be punched in the face by my fist.

Aside from that, I'm sure most of you that are appauled at the sight of a chauvanistic, sloppy, **** talking, belligerent, drunk man being knocked out feel great empathy for the completely innocent angel-like gentleman assaulted by the big brute. And feel it's unfair to the poor ol' little man on the floor because he was "talking it out" in a grown-up manner.

FYI: That is officially not a sucker punch.

It is shameful, stupid and ignorant that people's actions can be so disgraceful and violent for no reason at all and then, blame it on the alcohol. I don't care how bad things may seem it is NO reason to act the way these FOOLS act. They need to get a LIFE and be a MAN or Woman and stop acting so COWARDLY.

A lot of people posting their ignorance. Those who are claiming moral superiority and are condemning this incident as if they are the superior being/ultimate authority to do so, are just a bunch of ignorants driven by what they see and hear on this report... Images are distorted, words used to describe the incident influenced how a person approaches and sees the incident. One needs to look at the evidence completely and objectively, and the complete evidence is not here, and I admit I have not seen the entire sequence of events, so I won't claim to know exactly what happended because I do not have all the necessary information to analyze with objectivity. Most comments written seemed to be written with emotion rather than objectivity and rationale . Some are claiming to know what kind of people "Eddie and his wife" are without even knowing them. Ignorant people are ignorant because they speak as if they were the ultimate authority when they are not.
