There's fallout from the violence that marred last year's annual pre-season "Battle of The Bay" between the San Francisco 49ers and the Oakland Raiders.

Because of fights in the Candlestick Park stands that spilled over into the parking lot, where there were two shootings, the game has been cancelled.

That ends an 11-year run of preseason games between the 49ers and Raiders.

The teams won't meet in the regular season this year either.
