A Las Vegas Raiders fan gets into a fight with a Seattle Seahawks fan at a preseason game.
The Raiders were one of a handful of NFL franchises last year that did not get to play games in front of the home crowd. Allegiant Stadium may have been brand-spanking new in Southern Nevada, but the only Raider fan who got to watch a game there in person was owner Mark Davis. To make up for lost time, a member of Raider Nation did what he could to win a stadium fight.
Violence is never the answer, but like a car crash, we can never look away from fans fighting.
Las Vegas Raiders fan fights Seattle Seahawks fans during a preseason game
While some may argue the pen being mightier than the sword, diplomacy is overrated when your pen don’t got no ink. The last time we saw the Raiders and Seahawks get into it this physically, Bo Jackson was running over Brian Bosworth into the end zone. While it has been years since these two teams played in the old AFC West, there has always been bad blood between these rivals.
With a glorious Death Star to call their own in Sin City, whatever happens in Vegas should stay there. While the Raiders have a proud and loyal fanbase, every visiting team will have fans in attendance at Allegiant Stadium to get the whole Vegas experience. Even if this is not what they signed up for, getting punched in the mouth by an angry Raiders fan is just par for the course now.
The Raiders won the meaningless preseason game that did not count over the weekend, 20-7.
