Things got a bit heated at a Cowboys-Raiders joint practice, despite the gentle breeze.

There was a dense police occupation at the joint Cowboys-Raiders practice in Oxnard, California on Tuesday. The town has two gang populations, the Colonia Chiques and the Southside Chiques, which is a horrible coincidence and/or planning, who wear the opposing colors of the Cowboys and Raiders. Only one member of the crowd caused any trouble, however, as it was the players who had a frank exchange of ideas on the field.

The spark was lit by a scuffle between Cowboys cornerback Morris Claiborne and Raiders tight end Mychal Rivera, then gravitated toward the crowd, where a Raiders fan swung a helmet at the Cowboys' B.W. Webb.
