Coaches Behaving Badly… What's Your Dream Fight?

Posted: Updated:
PHILADELPHIA -

These two hockey coaches have figured out how to really solve the big issues in professional sports. They're Washington Capitals coach Adam Oates and New York Rangers coach John Tortorella.

After their series wrapped up earlier this week, Oates said there were too many penalties called against his team. Tortorella called it whining. So when Oates was asked if he could beat up Tortorella, he said yes. "Easily."

It wasn't over. Tortorella fired back, "We've got everybody and their brother whining out there in Washington about what happened in that series. And I think that's a big reason they lost that series."

Hockey guys have it right. Don't settle it on the ice. Let the coaches duke it out. You might remember the same John Tortorella got into it with then Flyers coach Ken Hitchcock during the 2004 playoffs.

But who can ever forget the ultimate coaches royale? Buddy Ryan, Jimmie Johnson in the 1989 Jessie Small-Luis Zendejas "Bounty-gate."
