A wild brawl erupted during an AFL match after a spectator repeatedly punched a fan in the jaw causing him to topple rows of seats.
The two men exchanged heated words on Saturday night during the game between Port Adelaide and Western Bulldogs in the Adelaide Oval.
Wearing the iconic teal and black scarf, the Port fan motioned for the other man to take a shot to the chin as he watched the Bulldogs take home a 19-point win over his home team.

The other man retaliated, throwing six punches in the Port fan’s face before pulling him back on the cuff of his jacket.
Before the Port fan could hit back, he lost his footing, fell backwards and tumbled in the seats behind him.
The Port Adelaide Football Club said 7 News they are aware of the vision of Saturday night’s game between Port Adelaide and the Western Bulldogs in Adelaide Oval.

Port Adelaide is urging anyone with more information about the incident to contact the club.
SA police are aware of the vision and are seeking witnesses to come forward and report the incident.
An Adelaide Oval official said their “security teams and SAPOL are everywhere at all matches, our customers are also encouraged to report bad behavior.”
It appears on this occasion that the incident, which occurred after the match ended, was not reported, making it difficult for us to take further action.
“This behavior is not tolerated at Adelaide Oval and we encourage all customers to use the 0400-TELL-US line of text to warn security of bad behavior.”
Daily Mail Australia has contacted Port Adelaide Football team, SA Police and Adelaide Oval for comment.
