The days following what was supposed to be one of the best games to open a college football season ever have focused more on what happened in the stands and in the concourses than what happened on the field.
And things keep getting uglier by the day.
According to a report by Busted Coverage and multiple in-person fan and witness reports and videos, two Alabama fans — each of them has the Crimson Tide logo proudly displayed on their gear — were involved in two separate incidents during the Chick-fil-A Kickoff Game last Saturday at Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta.
The first was a brawl in the stands with a group of Florida State fans in which the two alleged instigators and many others punched and shoved each other and threw drinks and bottles throughout the section.
Here’s that video:
Then later on in the game the same two fans appeared to be at it again, this time doing much more harm. One fan captured video of the pair in a concourse near a concession stand pushing and shoving with other fans. Then you see the fan in the white attempt to throw a punch before the fan in the crimson shirt and visor grab a woman and throw her to ground.
Here’s that video:

Busted Coverage further reports that Kraver Jr. faces one battery charge and his father faces three.
Correction: Here's the Bammer who was arrested on a battery charge. Fresh marriage, fresh charges! His dad has 3 battery charges. https://t.co/PqOeo07VNj
