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.
