Sunday’s game was billed as the final Raider appearance in Oakland before the silver and black band of deplorables relocate to Las Vegas, but a fight broke out instead. Correction: fights. Many of them between Raider Nation and security guards at the stadium once known as the Oakland Coliseum.
The scenes were ugly. Fans threw trash onto the field after the Raiders blew a big lead and lost their Oakland swan song to the Jacksonville Jaguars, 20-16. Some fans destroyed their seats. They vented their rage and the whole sordid scene made national news.
