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.
Dude, that’s no way to talk to a fake lady
Fight Combatants: UFC heavyweight Matt Mitrione & transgender fighter Fallon Fox
Fight Details: Mitrione went on a diatribe against the transgendered Fox, leaving little doubt what the former NFL lineman really thought of the woman who underwent gender reassignment surgery in 2006 and now fights women.
“That is a lying, sick, sociopathic, disgusting freak,” Mitrione said of Fox. “And I mean that. Because you lied on your license to beat up women. That’s disgusting. You should be embarrassed yourself. And the fact that Florida licensed him because California licensed him or whoever the hell did it, it’s an embarrassment to us as fighters, as a sport, and we all should protest that. The woman that’s fighting him, props to you. I hope you beat his ass, and I hope he gets blackballed and never fights again, because that’s disgusting and I’m appalled by that.”
The UFC responded to Mitrione by suspending him.
Fight Scorecard: Fox via decision. Look at all the buzz she created for herself by leaving manhood behind to beat up women. Genius marketing move. Now let’s see you not get your ass destroyed by Rousey.
He was hacked, right?
Fight Combatants: ESPN college football’s Mark May vs. Ohio State fans
Fight Details: There’s a mutual hatred between Ohio State fans and Mark May. He doesn’t hide his disdain for the school and the love is returned by Buckeye fan.
Then May (possibly hacked or he’s just this big of a grammar moron) sends out this tweet.
Fight Scorecard: This is so bad it’s impossible not to give this fight to OSU fan. Someone tell me he was hacked.
When bragging about Stanley Cups goes wrong
Fight Details: The scrappy Kings’ account picked one too many fights. If you’re going to troll the Devils over last year’s Stanley Cup, at least make sure you have more Cups.
One of you jerkoffs need to drop the gloves
Fight Combatants: Alain Berger of SC Bern and Sebastien Schilt of Gottéron in Swiss league
Fight Details: What can possibly be said about this ugly display of hockey fighting?
Fight Scorecard: Both disqualified.
Dana goes ‘One Direction’ on punk who was asking for it
Fight Combatants: The Champ & some fat chump
Fight Details: The People’s Commissioner, Dana White, has been flying quite a bit – Montreal & Sweden – and isn’t in the mood for Twitter smartasses who would like to challenge him. If Dana wants to bitch about customs, he’s going to bitch about customs.
Which led to…
Fight Scorecard: And the fight is all over when White drops a One Direction. You can go a couple rounds with the guy and then he’s going to drop your ass. Name another commissioner who’ll trade Twitter punches. You can’t. –– TKO.
