Tensions boiled over Sunday night when the Pittsburgh Steelers defeated the Green Bay Packers.

It got so bad that Steelers fans were trading punches and brawling in the stands with each other. It’s unclear what started this fight, but it quickly got out of control.

Classic crazy football fans. I’ve said it once, and I’ll absolutely say it again: there is never an excuse to be fighting during a sporting event. Literally no reason at all that I can think of or even attempt to justify.

People are at the game to have some fun, watch their team hopefully win and drink a few beers. They’re not there to get their faces bounded in. Absolutely disgraceful. Fighting at a football game or any other major sporting event should result in a lifetime ban. I think it’s more than a fair enough punishment.
