Not everything was hunky dory at Soldier Field last night following the Bears dramatic victory over the rival Green Bay Packers. After the game, as Packers safety Nick Collins headed down the tunnel towards the locker room, a rowdy fan allegedly yelled racial slurs at Collins (according to Collins, the fan used the n-word) and Collins retaliated by throwing his mouthpiece at the fan. League spokesman Greg Aiello told the AP, "[The NFL is] in the process of reviewing all the facts." WITI Fox 6 in Milwaukee spoke to Collins who apologized for his outburst. The network also aired footage but NFL rules prevent them from posting the clip of Collins' confrontation with the fan online.
