The Dallas Cowboys and Oakland Raiders' joint training-camp session turned ugly when not one, but two fights broke out during practice. 

The Dallas defense and Oakland offense got into it when Cowboys cornerback Morris Claiborne put tight end Mychal Rivera on his back, then barked at the crowd, according to one report from Tim MacMahon of ESPNDallas.com

NBCDFW.com provided a full video of the altercation:

The players' pushing and shoving appeared to get very close to fans during one of the fights.

They weren't done after that, either, as the two teams fought again when the Cowboys offense took the field and a backup reserve had his helmet ripped off. 

Cowboys cornerback B.W. Webb, who appeared to be hit by a fan, spoke about the incident to Tim MacMahon of ESPNDallas.com:

"Two teams going after it and happened to be some fans, too," Webb said. "Hey man, it happened. I wasn't expecting that. But whoever jumped on my back, I had to get them off. Hey, you got to let them know, man, the only thing protecting you is this fence."

Since the squads don't meet during the regular season, this will unfortunately have to remain unfinished business.
