Lions players trash-talked fans after sideline-clearing brawl with Raiders

The Oakland Raiders were hosting the Detroit Lions Wednesday for the second day of practices between the two teams heading into Preseason Week 1.

The action Tuesday involved a minor spat but nothing major occurred. Then Wednesday, all hell broke loose.

As the sidelines cleared, Raiders fans started chanting, which then led to some Lions players taunting them.

There’s always a bit of danger that fights like this will break out when two teams meet up for practice during training camp.

However, it’s one thing to engage in some fisticuffs with your opponent, and quite another to start going after fans, even verbally.

Let’s just hope that cooler heads prevail in the future.
