Well, it's no big deal to have it posted in more than one forum, especially since there are a lot of people who post here but not in SF&F, and vice versa. Plus, while this story seems to be greatly overblown because of the humorous circumstances (there wasn't even an actual fight), I'm looking forward to seeing how people will have fun talking about it here.

However, it does need a working article link, so here are the two from the other threads on this:

Here's one of my favorite fan rivalry clips, albeit a fake one from the Conan O'Brien show:

First thing that came to mind is the Phineas & Ferb episode. :lol:

When I saw the headline, I thought of Fanboys.

Doctor Who fans had an actual fight at a mini con here a couple years back. Some long held dispute.

Dr. Who versus Star Wars? I thought it'd be Trekkies versus Star Wars fans.

Wasn't this an episode of the new Outer Limits, starring (of all people) Colin Mochrie?
