Within 30 Seconds It's Obvious This Argument Over Football on an Atlanta Train Won't End Well

"Ride with respect"

It starts with some vulgar banter. 30 seconds later, the personal insults start. And that's when you realize that a video of two men arguing over their football teams isn't going to end well.

The video was posted on Sunday and shows two men on an Atlanta transit train arguing about the Dallas Cowboys and Atlanta Falcons. While most of the conversation is unintelligible, hard to follow and filled with slurs, the crux is clear. When the Cowboys fan starts hurling personal insults, the Falcons fan steps forward to confront the man. The Cowboys fan strikes him, then dares the other man to "swing."

He does.

And for almost a full minute the Falcons fan unleashes blow after blow. Bystanders try to separate the two, but it takes some time to actually do it. The video eventually ends when the doors of the train open.

According to WGCL-TV, the men have not been identified and police are looking for help to nab them.

Atlanta's transit authority, MARTA, did release a statement and characterized it as a "rare" incident:

"This type of rare and unfortunate incident is being addressed through enhanced police patrols, the installation of security cameras on every vehicle and the enforcement of a customer code of conduct that will lead to the suspension of anyone who's caught engaging in this kind of unacceptable behavior on our transit system."

The incident comes as the city announced a "Ride with respect."
