Fights at football games seem to have become more common recently.
In many cases, the combination of alcohol and interaction between two fans or opposite teams creates a scuffle that is embarrassing to both parties. However, there was one incident this past NFL weekend that involved two fans of the same team.
Two Steelers fans fought in the stands of Heinz Field during Sunday’s game — mind you, one Pittsburgh won 29-14 over the Cincinnati Bengals, an AFC North Division rival.
The scuffle began with one fan yanking the other down several rows, before the other fan retaliates by landing several punches, leaving the original aggressor busted open.
Here’s a clip of the incident:
Once again, there were no Bengals fans shown or presumably in the area to rile up the two Pittsburgh fans fighting each other. Granted, we don’t know what was said between the two parties and it isn’t the first incident involving fans of the same team trading blows.
Still, it’s not a good look at all, especially given the fan base’s recent antics, which included one fan calling head coach Mike Tomlin a racial slur for allowing the the team to participate in a protest of the national anthem.
Stay classy, Steeler fans.
