“Remember remember the 5th of November” was not uttered because of the potential for NFL fights to break out on this particular day, but after three on-field fights and a few more in the stands, if the shoe fits. There were on-field fights in Jacksonville, New Orleans, and San Francisco, and there was a fight in the stands in Miami too.
So what do we have here? We have a skirmish between one Raiders fan and multiple Dolphins fans, especially before the video was taken, but after the fan in the Derek Carr jersey gets a two-handed shove in the back, all hell broke loose. Maybe he said something, who knows, but the guy who shoved him looked like his mother was just insulted.
Maybe the most fascinating part of the video comes when the fan in the Carr’s jersey’s girlfriend (in all likelihood) comes along and says “You’re not going anywhere” to those that went after him.
Certainly seemed like there was more intensity in the stands last night than there was on the field, but the Raiders fan got the last laugh in the end as Oakland beat Miami.
When looking for an explanation for why these fights occurred all at once, “remember, remember the 5th of November”.
