Bottles Smashed and F-Bombs Dropped in Chargers and Cowboys' Fan Fight

And this is why we don't have nice things, people. 

On Sunday, the Cowboys lost to the Chargers at Qualcomm Stadium, 30-21, but before the game, a fracas broke out that saw bottles smashed on heads and general buffoonery taking place. 

Guyism's A. Isaac spotted the following NSFW video that shows the latest fight among fans who are actually dumb enough to believe sports loyalty somehow justifies violence. 

And with that, we have lost faith in humanity for the day. 

Isaac did well to identify a couple of real geniuses who decided to take what was a shouting match and escalate that to a bottle-bashing soiree. 

As one Cowboys fan seems to be walking away from whomever wants to get in his face, these two guys are the ones who begin breaking bottles on people's heads.

Do your magic, Internet. 

Now you would think sensible adults could actually enjoy a football game without inflicting harm on another. We know better. 

This is an issue that extends well beyond NFL parking lots. Recently, a Dodgers fan, Jonathan Denver, was stabbed and killed outside AT&T Park after a Giants game. 

The deplorable act came just two years after Giants fan Bryan Stow was beaten in the Dodgers Stadium parking lot on Opening Day

Because videos like this cause me to overreact and spew things out of emotion rather than sensible thinking, maybe we don't need alcohol at sporting events. Perhaps we should do away with any and all forms of tailgating. 

Sure it's ridiculous, but so is people getting their heads smashed with bottles, stabbed and killed all because they follow a different team than you do or happen to shout something that angers you during a big game. 

As it turns out, we are a pretty stupid species. 

We can't go to something as trivial and as wonderful as a sporting event without causing bodily harm to another. It would seem like a fairly easy task to go to a game, cheer on your team and return home safely. 

Of course I don't think we should really outlaw all alcohol and tailgating across the board. However, the more videos I see and stories I hear, the line I thought would be ridiculous to cross looks far more sensible than the alternative.
