That's because there is still such a thing as a gentleman in the South.

*cough* bull *cough*

Fights aren't exactly gentlemanly... and I always walk on the street side of a lady so I can protect them from cars... 'cause my mommy tought me :D

No, fights are stupid. But the idea of having rules for fights harkens back to the whole age of gentlemen and duels and such.

And as someone who spends a lot of time in both the South and the North, I can say that there really is still a sense of chivalry in the South that apparently no longer exists in the North.

anything other than a one on one fight is ricockulous.  it's the puss way out and you deserve a beat down for it.  

but see, I've learned that this mentality is distinctly southern.  All my yankee friends were like "that's the dumbest thing I've ever heard!  It's a fight! There are no 'rules'!"

there are definitely rules.  one on one, back off if he's down and walk away after he has been humbled enough to prove the point

Those are the rules.  The very rarely followed rules.

i dunno, i think if i went down south and started a fight a group of southerners would try to beat me down. havent you ever watched walker texas ranger.

heh.  Like I said, if you went into Percy's or probably Riley's, you'd get mauled.  Roy's or Ossies is a bit different crowd.  They'd still pick a fight with the fresh meat, but it would probably be one on one.

I have a friend at Springhill in Alabama and he said there are a whole bunch of Northerners too. Is that pretty common?

that is the difference right there.  If you bust out a weapon, and use it on one of their buddies, you've violated the code.  They wouldn't leave you alone, they'd lynch you.
