According to Deadspin, two stories have surfaced in which players from the Jacksonville Jaguars were beaten up in London, England this past weekend. They’re not certain if both stories are from one fight, or separate fights. But here you go.
Let’s start with the first version, from a source in London: Two Jaguars players attempted to enter the team hotel, the Grosvenor House, with six women on Sunday. This would’ve been sometime after the San Francisco-Jacksonville game at Wembley Stadium, a Jags loss. Hotel security denied entry to the coterie of ladies. This led to a fight of some kind—also a Jags loss. The two players were treated at the hospital.
In the other story, three (not two) players went clubbing after the game, whereupon they were confronted by nine (nine!) guys, some of whom supposedly wore brass knuckles. This version comes from a source who knows the players but who wouldn’t give us their names. There was a fight, also a Jags loss, followed by a trip to the hospital. Two of the players looked “pretty rough,” according to the source—”black eyes, cuts and bruises.” (This source also dismissed the coterie-of-ladies story, pointing out that NFL security would’ve stepped in at some point.)
It sounds like the Jaguars need to start forfeiting their extracurricular activities and hang out in the hotel room rather than go out.
