It’s not often that you see fan fights escalate to this level, but this was one of the most intense fights I’ve seen. This brawl during the Wild-Avalanche game was quite nasty.
From the City Pages:
City Pages reader Keenan Price sent along a much better video of the fight in the stands during Saturday night’s Wild game in Colorado. Just as we suspected, the whole thing started because an angry drunken Avs fan got way too fired up.
Price, a Wild fan, said his section was full of people cheering on the Wild, and as the game progressed what started as good-natured trash-talk ramped up into something more serious.
“I started filming because I thought the guy getting all worked up was funny; I didn’t think it was going to escalate into a throw down,” says Price. “It was definitely people just getting worked up over no real reason, then more and more people got involved and there you go.”
