Coach suspends Carew after fight

Tempers flared between the two high-profile professional soccer
players before the squad's training session in Drammen even ended.
Teammate Steffen Iversen came between the two and tried to settle them
down.

But the two were seen continuing to irritate each other. Newspaper VG
reported that Riise spat on Carew's shoe when the players were
jogging, while Carew motioned several times for Riise to meet him at a
stadium exit.

When the team emerged from the locker room and boarded the bus that
would take them back to their hotel, tempers boiled over. Carew was
seen punching Riise, while teammates and officials frantically tried
to shield the incident from gawking spectators.

The national team's coach didn't acknowledge the fight until mid-day
on Tuesday, when he confirmed he had suspended Carew. He said Carew,
who recently started playing for Roma, himself opted to fly home.

Coach Nils Johan Semb told reporters that Riise and Carew had
reconciled, but that he had to react to Carew's "unacceptable
behaviour."

Riise also said the two had settled their differences, which mostly
amounted to quarreling on the field that grew out of proportion.
"We're friends again," Riise claimed.

The extent of the *** is new. Apparently Carew came from behind
and blindsided Riise with an elbow to the side of the head, sending
him head first into the window pane and knocking him unconscious. He
followed that up with 3 punches to the head of Riise before he was
dragged off.

That's jail time.
