FWIW...I always figured the A’s fans were probably “worse” but that’s because of the Raiders... I’ve seen plenty of drunks, fights now and then at the few hundred games I’ve gone to over the years.
But since I grew up with an AL team before moving to Cali, I pretty much only saw A’s games... When years later I finally went to some Giants games, it was clear within 5 mins of entering the stadium that Giants fans were definitely superior to A’s fans at running their mouths at opposing fans. And better at being belligerent drunks.
I’ll wait til it all plays out, but from personal experience, I have a hard time believing that a Giants fan decked out in Giants gear at Chavez Ravine was just sitting there quietly.
He was blindsided by gangbangers. Hit from behind...like shooting an unsuspecting man in the back. Whatever he might have said, or did not say, isn’t relevant. A high crime was committed. You do understand this, right? This was three or more against one. You understand this, right?
A brawl is many against many. You understand this, right? A bar room fight can be a brawl, or one on one. You understand this, right? Shooting a man in the back, or hitting him with a deadly weapon, while his back is turned, is wrong. You understand this, right?
