You’ve been sitting around the house, eating greasy pizza, watching the NFL Network and avoiding your annoying girlfriend or wife. You haven’t moved off the couch in 48 hours and your phone died, rendering your Twitter account worthless. Meanwhile, sports smack-talking maniacs have been using social media and other outlets to vent on fellow combatants. Athletes are fighting writers. Writers are fighting writers. Athletes are fighting fans. This is where Busted Coverage steps in on a weekly basis. The gatekeepers. If someone is in a sports-related war, we’re all ears. If you know of a sports-related beef, we want to hear about it. There are no sports beefs too small for The Schoolyard editors. Try us. mail@bustedcoverage.com When Family Feuds Turn To Punches Fight Combatants: Former Dolphins WR Mark Duper vs. his son Fight Details:  Duper was arrested Thursday on a felony child abuse charge, according to the Palm Beach Post. Former Dolphins defensive end Hugh Green told The Associated Press by telephone that he witnessed the brawls. He said Marcus Duper started the fights, thinking he could “beat his father.” Green and his 18-year-old son had stopped to visit Duper and his son after attending a charity golf outing in Miami earlier in the week. “I saw Mark defending himself after a young son was defiant,” Green said. Fight Scorecard: Is there really a winner here? Ok, Mark did knock out his son. Chael Starting Feud With WWE Fight Combatants: Chael Sonnen vs. CM Punk & Vince McMahon Fight Details:  It’s good to see Sonnen back on his Twitter game. He’s been pretty quiet lately, but no longer. It seems he has some sort of beef with Vince that has now erupted into a cage match challenge. This might all stem from Dana White saying that Vince once challenged him to a match. Fight Scorecard: First round to Sonnen. CM Punk (@CMPunk) hasn’t tweeted since late February so this might not go any further. And Still Undefeated! Fight Combatants: The commissioner vs. some Twitter dbag Fight Details:  Just the usual chirping Dana has to deal with from punks who badmouth his UFC fight cards. Name another commissioner who will go on Twitter with some dude, Chris White, who has 46 followers. You can’t. Fight Scorecard: Dana remains undefeated in his Schoolyard history – via guillotine. Welcome To The Show, Rookie Fight Combatants: Rookie Eric Selleck vs. Kevin Westgarth & the NHL Fight Details:  Selleck made his NHL debut this week for the Florida Panthers in a game against Carolina. The logical move is to instigate a fight late in the 3rd period. Actually, that was the wrong move. Two punches later and Selleck was KO’d, carried off the ice and assessed 17 penalty minutes. Then the NHL reviewed the fight and gave Selleck a two-game suspension for leaving the bench with intent to instigate a fight. Fight Scorecard: NHL via KO. Billionaire vs. The Hair Fight Combatants: Rich guy Mark Cuban vs. supposedly rich guy Donald Trump Fight Details:  These two have been beefing all week on Twitter. There was a Harlem Shake challenge and a scrum over which guy had more money. Then there was Cuban’s latest response from Wednesday’s Mavs game (photo above). “Blown off again.. GO MAVS!” The Mavs lost to Brooklyn, 113-96. Fight Scorecard: Draw. Filed under: Schoolyard
