A vicious brawl broke out between fans of the San Francisco 49ers in the stands during their second preseason game this weekend. The insane untimely sparring match was caught on camera and posted to social media shortly after taking place, and fans of NFL teams all across the league tuned in to watch the absolute mayhem taking place at Levi’s Stadium.
At least three fans can be seen throwing punches and participating in the melee. As the video progresses, one fan, wearing a number eight Steve Young Jersey, is seen being held back from the fray by a number of other fans. Two more participants continue their battle, falling on top of each other as each throws punch after punch and bystanders do their best to protect those who wish to remain uninvolved.
The one-and-a-half-minute video shows kids just one row behind the action trying their best to avoid any accidental blows that might come their way. One of the kids, however, seemed to be too interested in the fight to leave as he looked on in disbelief at the scene taking place before him.

In more optimistic news for the San Francisco 49ers, up-and-coming quarterback Brock Purdy made a positive impression on the game as he rehabs from an elbow injury that ended his season prematurely last year.
Speaking to the press in a quote shared by the team’s official transcript, Purdy said, “In terms of my arm and everything, yeah. Yeah, my arm feels great just still building back-to-back days and trying to gain all the strength that I can back from the rehab process of things and I feel really confident.”
Purdy also noted that he feels good about the way this preseason is trending for him and the team. He said, “Yeah, it felt good, just going out there, new look, new environment and not going against our defense. So, it felt good just to be able to get a different look and work on the stuff that we needed to work on. So, that was a good day.”
After his injury last season, Purdy was quick to put his recovery into God’s hands and trust in His plans. He said, “I don’t try to make it more than it is. I’m a faith-based guy, so that’s how I stay grounded. I don’t look at football like it’s literally everything. It’s [not] do or die or anything like that.”
He later added, “I’m not just a quarterback. I wasn’t born to just to be a quarterback and play football, and that’s it. Like, I have a life and everything like that. And I remember that, but at the same time, man, I’m a competitor. I love to compete. I want to win at all costs and so, I’ve been enjoying that as well, so that’s where I’m at. That’s how I stay grounded with it all, but I’m definitely thankful and blessed to be here.”
