Emotions boiled over Sunday in Toronto after a Hamilton Tiger-Cats fan allegedly spit a mouthful of beer into the face of a Toronto Argonauts player, setting off a wild scene where an Argos player took a swing at a Hamilton fan.
The Tiger-Cats beat the Argos 27-19 on the field to win a spot in the CFL Grey Cup, but it was the Argos trying to put a beatdown on fans who were yelling — and allegedly spitting beer – at Toronto players as they exited the field.

According to SportsNet, Toronto police are investigating Sunday’s incident. “At the end of the game, two men allegedly jumped a barricade and were attempting to fight with players,” police said in a statement. “Officers and security quickly intervened and both men are alleged to have been assaultive with staff and police. As a result, both were trespassed from BMO Field and Exhibition Place.”
Chris Edwards, a defensive back out of Idaho, and Dejon Brissett, a wide receiver from the University of Virginia, were the two players involved with the Hamilton fan.
