Kyle Hadala thinks the blame is on Dallas Goedert for the situation that resulted in the Eagles player getting punched.

Hadala has been charged with simple assault after allegedly lighting up the Eagles tight end during a bar altercation towards the end of June, but he thinks the blame falls on the shoulders of the young NFL player. In fact, he thinks Goedert and his friends escalated the whole situation in South Dakota. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football)

“They were extremely aggressive and disrespectful,” Hadala told TMZ when discussing what happened prior to the alleged punch.

He also said that a buddy of Goedert told him they were going to “beat the s*** out of” his friend. Goedert then made contact with someone in the video, and it was off to the races.

“At this point, I was in fear for both of my friends’ well-being especially due to the fact there were 10 of them and we were not familiar with the area. I protected my friend and then was ambushed by 5 to 7 individuals that punched, kicked, threw beer bottles, etc., trying to cause me bodily harm which I received medical treatment at the hospital for my injuries the next day,” Hadala explained to TMZ.

I will say that it certainly does appear in the video Goedert touched somebody right before getting jacked in the face.

Does that excuse the fact that he got lit up like a Christmas tree? No, but it certainly helps provide a little context to the situation.

Having said that, Hadala still just should have informed the restaurant of the issues or the police before it escalated to that point.

If someone is acting aggressive or threatening you, then don’t wait for a brawl to start in order to do something.

Tell management or the police immediately. Deescalate the situation before it gets to a point where a guy is obliterated on the floor. Fighting at a bar is never a good idea.

We’ll see how this all shakes out in court, but it certainly seems like Hadala thinks he has a solid defense.
