YouTubeShocking footage shows the moment a prestigious beach rugby tournament descended into chaos when players started brawling.

Security guards and police officers were forced to break up the scuffles between the stocky young athletes.

Four teams have been disqualified after the confrontations during the Beach Rugby Wales tournament on Saturday. …

Brawls were filmed breaking out on the pitches during two games – one between Porth A and Wattstown, and another between Ferndale and Rhigos.

OK, now I get why Bill Belichick signed off on letting Nate Ebner miss most of camp chasing an Olympic rugby medal. If this is what a “friendly” is like in the sport, then I’m all for it.

In the normal course of business, I’d rather everybody be at the Gillette practice field, positional meetings and the film room, studying how to be Arizona in Week One. But if rugby consists of gangs of random, uniformed fat guys from Porth A, Wattstown, Ferndale and Rhigos coming at each other from all directions like the third act of “The Warriors” then I have to think squaring off against the entire rugby-playing world in the Amazon has to help a guy get ready for the Bills and Jets.

ScooplaWe know that Nick Jonas and Demi Lovato are the best of friends [and] openly discussed his break-up with former Miss USA Olivia Culpo. The two of them dated for almost two years and were definitely one of the hottest couples out there.

When Nick was making a decision on the relationship, he called Demi for advice and she said, “Just go, create and be free.” Apparently there were other words exchanged, but Nick kept them secret – don’t tease us like that!

Demi chimed it to say, not beating around the bush, “Honestly, I didn’t like her anyway.”

“[Nick] is a guy in his 20’s and he’s famous and he likes to have a lot of fun. Listen, even when he was in a relationship, I was like, ‘Get out of that. You could f*ck anybody you want right now, so have fun and do that.”

Nice try, Demi Lovato, but no one’s buying it. Here she is, trying to burn Olivia Culpo like she’s the loser in this equation when nothing could be further from the truth.

Oh, so the former Miss Rhode Island-turned-Miss USA gets dumped by Nick Jonas and had to settle for … Danny Amendola. Instead of still being fettered to the corpse of a former boy band heartthrob whose career has the shelf life of a gallon of milk, she ends up with an absurdly attractive member of the handsomest team in the NFL, who’s a member of a great comedy duo and while we’re talking about him, a Super Bowl champion.

Amendola will still be a football legend and adding championship rings to his resume when Nick Jonas is getting slime dropped on him at the Nick Teen Choice Awards and hoping to land a hosting gig on the Game Show Network. So maybe Demi did orchestrate the breakup because she wanted Nick to get as much strange as he can before his career is over. But my guess is Olivia finally realized playtime was over and she needed to upgrade from this boy to a true man.

Either way, it’s the best thing that ever happened to her.

ComplexIt’s been more than a year now since we’ve put up any posts about Michael Vick’s brother Marcus doing anything reckless on Twitter. …

Over the course of the last two days, the younger Vick has sent out a series of tweets about how someone he knows needs to “stop spreading Herpes around.” …

And while none of those tweets made headlines because no one knew what in the world Marcus was talking about, he raised quite a few eyebrows on Tuesday morning when he responded to a tweet from Twitter user @TStauff, who suggested that Bills running back LeSean McCoy had stolen his girl. In doing so, Marcus accused McCoy of having herpes and of giving herpes to his ex.

This is just another example of why I believe with all my heart that karma is a thing. Even though sometimes it comes back to bite the wrong person in the genitalia.

Here we have poor Marcus Vick. Not only does he get his girlfriend stolen by LeSean McCoy, but his now-ex honey is tainted with the herp. Why? Because of something he did? No. But because Michael Vick went around years ago spreading herpes under the pseudonym Ron Mexico. It’s like that old Bible verse about “The sins of the brother will be visited upon the other brother, often in the form of an incurable venereal disease.” Or something like that. I’ve really only watched the History Channel version of the book so I forget.

Nevertheless, you have to feel bad for the runt of the Vick litter. He’s out a girlfriend. Even if he wants to take her back, he’d be staring down the barrel of Shady McCoy’s second-hand cooties. And his only recourse is to go on Twitter and tell the world about it, as any reasonable man would do. It’s a fate worse than being a disgraced former dog fight ring organizer.

The Blue Jays reportedly have agreed with the Padres on a trade that will send outfielder Melvin Upton Jr. to the American League East. According to Fox Sports’ Ken Rosenthal, the Blue Jays will send a not-yet identified Class-A player to the Padres for the 31-year-old. The trade needs the approval from Major League Baseball.

Upton is slashing .256/.304/.439 in 92 games this season. He has 16 home runs and 45 RBIs and is fourth in the National League with 20 stolen bases. The veteran is in the midst of a bounce-back season after batting .184 and .208 in 2013 and 2014, respectively, and playing only 87 games last year. He will earn $15.45 million this season and $16.45 million next year, but the Padres reportedly will be paying a significant amount of Upton’s remaining contract.

The Blue Jays, who trail the Orioles by three games in the American League East, likely will utilize Upton to bring depth and versatility to their outfield. Upton is quick and can play all outfield positions, but he’ll likely battle center fielder Kevin Pillar for playing time.

Upton is the fourth well-known player the struggling Padres have traded away this year, joining James Shields, Fernando Rodney and now-Red Sox pitcher Drew Pomeranz.
