Historians will agree that 2012 was NOT the year sports fans stopped acting like idiots and fighting each other. In fact, throwing a few haymakers is now almost a part of attending a game. Let’s put up our dukes and examine some of the best fan brawls of the year.
9. Fan Knocks Out Two Other Dudes at Mexico-Canada Soccer Match, April 9
A real international affair. Presumably this happened after a spirited debate over the merits of NAFTA.
8. Watch an Absolutely Hammered Texas A&M Fan Start a Fight in an Airport, November 13
Nothing like seeing a racist asshole get what’s coming to him. Hope his idiocy doesn’t hamper Johnny Football’s Heisman campaign.
7. Buffalo Bills Fans Keep Warm By Beating Shit out of Each Other, November 13
Hey, it was cold. Solid excuse.
6. Society Reaches New High Point as Texans, 49ers Fans Brawl in Stands, August 31
It’s important to note this was a preaseason game. Who says those games don’t matter? These fans believe they’re worth shedding blood over.
