    Update: This story was posted during a spate of what now seem to be minor altercations following sporting events. In light of recent, and escalating, events, the tone of the article is in appropriate. Rather than remove the link, we've re-edited to reflect the severity and growing concern around fan-on-fan violence.

    -------------------------------------

    Between Epic Beard Man and the brawls at McDonald's, the Bay Area is building a reputation for fights that are broadcast on YouTube.

    An amateur brawl video from this Sunday's Raiders-Dolphins game is on the internet:

    It's the kind of skirmish one sees at (almost?) every Oakland Raiders home game. A rival fan in attendance at the Oakland Coliseum decides to run his mouth despite being badly outnumbered by Raiders fans, and then the rival fan learns why the Oakland Coliseum has such an intimidating reputation for visiting teams' fans.

    Except in this case, the visiting team's fan gets rendered horizontal and unconscious with one punch.

    If you think fan-on-fan violence is something that Raider Nation should not be proud of, realize that the Dolphins fan in question shoves the other Raiders fans at least three times.
