With the assault on his father by recently released punter Danny Baugher, coupled with the news out of Northern Colorado that the back-up kicker stabbed the starting kicker to possibly secure a starting spot (hilarious), the Sports Hernia decided to take a look at big name kickers who have had their own brushes with violence.

Ray Finkle & Scott Norwood
Ray and Scott continue to run the violent "No Laces Wide" pub in Alaska where they average three patrons a year, two of whom are usually ghosts. Each night around 7pm you can find them squaring off to fight in the middle of the empty dance floor as The Dropkick Murphy's song from the Departed blares in the background while their favorite horror movies play on black & white television sets throughout the bar.
Bahr's violent background comes as no surprise, given the fact that NFL Films compiled an entire highlight reel on his tackles on kickoffs. After every road game, Bahr used to go to the stadium's parking lot, pick out the biggest and drunkest guy in the place and just beat the living shit out of him - all while wearing a helmet with one bar for the facemask. Bahr would also reportedly yell: "No Holds Bahred!" before pummeling that poor sap in the parking lot.
