Report: 49ers, Raiders will no longer meet in preseason

Fooch's Note
I figured I'd just use this FanShot to discuss this topic. Tim Kawakami is reporting a "high-ranking NFL source" has said "it is certain that the 49ers and Raiders will end their annual exhibition game against each other." The series would potentially instead be replaced with a closed 49ers-Raiders scrimmage during training camp.

As the FanPost writer posted, it's a shame that a group of morons have created this problem. We've got a story stream over at SB Nation Bay Area, and it sounds like there is a good chance this was gang-related. They've arrested suspects in some of the more serious attacks, but they are still looking for suspects in others. If you were in attendance at the game and did see any of the incidents in question, please contact the SFPD tip line at (415) 575-4444 or text a tip to TIP411 and begin the message with SFPD. I realize some folks might view this as "ratting somebody out" but attacks like this are done by cowards that deserve jail time.

The fan-on-fan violence that marred Saturday’s game between the Raiders and 49ers will result in the NFL to stop scheduling the teams to play each other in the preseason.

Tim Kawakami of the San Jose Mercury-News reports that the 49ers and Raiders will end their annual exhibition game. The local police strongly support ending the preseason rivalry, Kawakami reports.

It’s a shame that the actions of a handful of fans are going to end an annual preseason game that tens of thousands of fans have attended without causing any trouble, but if the local police think Raiders and 49ers fans can’t be controlled around each other, then canceling the annual tradition of having them play each other is probably the right move
