Cowboys fan beaten unconscious by Raiders fan after Thanksgiving Day game

The Dallas Cowboys hosted their annual Thanksgiving Day game against the Oakland Raiders on Thursday. The Cowboys managed to come back from a 21-7 deficit to win the game.

After the game however, a Cowboys fan was attacked by a group of four Raiders fans and viciously beaten. The victim was left on a sidewalk unconscious.

From the Dallas Morning News:

The assault happened shortly after the game and left the man unconscious on a sidewalk at Cowboys Way and AT&T Way, according to authorities.

The man, who was not identified, was taken to a hospital by ambulance with injuries that were not life-threatening, police spokeswoman Tiara Richard said.

No arrests have been made, and a detailed description of the silver-and-black-clad suspects was not available.

“Officers attempted to find witnesses but had none willing to come forward last night,” Richard said.

Post game violence is seeming to become a more regular thing. There was the most famous incident from 2011 involving San Francisco Giants fan Bryan Stow who was attacked in Los Angeles by Dodgers fans. In September, a fan wearing Dodgers gear was stabbed and killed leaving a Giants game in San Francisco.

There was a video of Jets and Patriots fans getting into at MetLife Stadium recently, and just earlier this season Cowboys fans were involved in a bottle smashing confrontation in San Diego at the Chargers game.
