Tim Floyd says, 'Security!'
In an interview today, Floyd told me that when the fists started flying he "waited 20 or 25 seconds for security to come but no one came. I just thought somebody needed to step in and stop things."
Since the video clip went public, Floyd said, "Friends have been calling suggesting I start applying for jobs as a security guard. That was more physical than anything I saw in the Pac-10."For the full story, jump to my sports media column at latimes.com/sports. Floyd, by the way, settles the question as to whether the man who prevented a woman from hitting Floyd with a chair was indeed Henry Bibby, as Jim Rome has said.
