The Raiders have long been done with Oakland, their 2020 move to Las Vegas the result of years of apathy toward the Northern California town.
On Sunday, after the team’s last home game in the region, Oakland showed — in over-the-top fashion — that it was done with the Raiders.
Some fans charged the Coliseum field following a 20-16 loss to the Jaguars. Others remained in their seats but threw items toward the playing surface. Most people booed.
Several people appeared to be injured in the chaos. Security personnel and fans could be seen clashing on video.
Things are descending into chaos in Oakland. Media has been asked to leave the field as security engaged in full-on brawl with a fan. Another woman gushed blood from her forehead, appearing as if she had been hit by trash heading for the field. pic.twitter.com/zOlImU7hEh

The Raiders’ departure marks the second Oakland sports team to depart in a short span. The Warriors moved to San Francisco earlier this year. And the A’s, who are about to become Oakland’s lone occupant, are not exactly in a stable position, either.
