Man killed after fight between Dodgers-Giants fans following last night’s game

ATT Park

My god this crap has got to stop:

A man was stabbed to death when a fight broke out between rival fans just after a San Francisco Giants baseball game near San Francisco’s AT&T Park late Wednesday night.

It started with words between rival fans after the game. No information yet on whose fans started it and who the victim was a fan of, but that hardly matters.

It’s baseball, people. It’s just a sport. How on earth it can lead to this sort of thing is utterly beyond me.

(thanks to Halladay’s Biceps for the heads up)

    Latest from sfpd is that it was a nightclub fight.

    Like most Dodger fans I hate everything about the Giants. However, that hate extends to what happens on the field and absolutely ends when the game is over. Win or lose, we are all humans and (mostly) US citizens who still need to live and work together. Root for your team, as hard and as vocally as you want, but leave that passion and aggression in the stadium. It has no place in the real world where there are real world consequences for actions such as this.

    Somehow that message got lost last night, and someone lost their life over a game.

    Do you honestly think this was really about the Giants and Dodgers? Come on.

      SFPD seems to be confident that it was:

      San Francisco Police Chief Greg Suhr say the argument that led to the fatal stabbing was over the Giants-Dodgers rivalry.

    The behavior of some fans involved in rivalries is beyond stupid. I’m a native Clevelander living in Cincinnati (don’t ask it involves marrying a southern gal). I get to at least one Indians game against the Reds each year and go attired in Tribe gear. At most we get a little friendly ribbing. However, at football games it gets ugly. I work concessions at Bengals games for our charity group. When the Steelers, Ravens or Browns come to town there are always fights in the stands or parking lots. Worst was playoff game where Palmer’s knee was blown out early. Even women were fighting by the end of that game.

    Let’s just ship both teams back to New York.

    This had nothing to do with the Giants or the Dodgers. Mexican street gangs have hijacked both team’s gear and colors and have used them to identify themselves. They also do it with football gear from the niners, raiders, cowboys and steelers. If you’re in san francisco and you’re walking around in cowboys or dodgers gear, they only reason you’ll face any real danger is because you’re probably being mistaken for a sureno gang member, or more likely, you’re seen as “disrespecting” a notreno in northern territory. Thats exactly what happen to brian stow down in LA when he got mouthy with a couple of surenos. It wasn’t that they thought he was a norteno, it was that they perceived him as being disrespectful to surenos and the south…

    People are f****king idiots. I am a former 700 level Eagle fan and have traveled to plenty of away, sometimes by myself, and have never had one incident. NOT ONE! And I get jacked up on beer and shots. So it is about the individual, not saying this guy deserved to die but one comment or one middle finger and you are now involved. Idiots

      Two words: San Quentin. Say hi to Charles Manson. Tell him I said F-ck you!
