Packers: Collins ‘I could have walked away’

Jclombardi covers the incident between Packers S Collins and Bears fan.

ESPN: Collins vs Bears fan incident coverage.


Two days after a post Bears game confrontation with an unruly fan, Packers safety Nick Collins apologized to his team and fans. ”This is a situation that I could have walked away from but, you know, heat of the moment,” Collins said. “Things happen. Both sides [were] out of line.”  Collins wouldn’t go into details, but he didn’t contradict a WITI-TV report that said the fan spit and used a racial slur.  ”You know, it’s going to happen,” Collins said. “I’ve got to be a bigger person and keep walking.”
