The Rams are back in Los Angeles, so you would think that their fans would be happy right now, right? Most of them probably are, but the ones in this video? Not so much. They were more angry than happy when their team took on the Cowboys in the first preseason game of the 2016 NFL season, and they showed it by pummeling on a bunch of Dallas fans who showed up at the Coliseum. Who knew tempers could flare over a preseason matchup that featured a bunch of backup offensive and defensive players?
As you can see in the clip, the Cowboys/Rams preseason game—which was meaningless in the grand scheme of things—was taking place in the background when this fight happened. Maybe these guys were upset over paying full price for seats at the Coliseum, or maybe they were ticked off about shelling out $100 to park in some places. But whatever the case, this got ugly. Fast.
And lest you think this was just a one-off situation, we should note that the YouTube user who posted this clip pointed out that this was just one of many fights to take place in this specific section of the Coliseum on Saturday. "Fight at first home game for the Los Angeles Rams," boRn_N_DA_80s wrote. "There were a couple in my area, but this was only one I could catch on video."
As a "bonus," here's another fight that took place outside of the Coliseum prior to the game. It also featured Cowboys and Rams fans going at it:
So it looks like 2016 will be another great year for NFL fan fights, huh? SMH. At least wait until the real season starts, folks. There's no need to get so worked up over the preseason.
