Footage shows the men brutally beating each other as they walked from the parking lot to the field full of families and children.

Shocked spectators sneered in horror while others cheered on the fight.

One person yelled at Cox to “nail that shit,” while another climbed onto a car and pulled down his pants.

The violent encounter is just the latest in a string of ugly GNFL incidents, including an all-in brawl that saw Brigades coach Jayden Schofield suspended for 10 weeks.

Maurice Brand, father of a Brigades player, was also banned from games for 18 months because of strikes.
