Dan Wetzel and Darren Rovell got into it on Twitter Thursday.

The latest case of Twitter Wars involves an ESPN personality and a Yahoo columnist going head-to-head over claims former U.S. women’s national soccer team keeper (and unsuccessful USSF presidential candidate) Hope Solo made about the cost of youth soccer.

Here’s the fight between ESPN sports business reporter Darren Rovell and Yahoo columnist Dan Wetzel over Solo’s comments:

Wetzel’s responses are perhaps the most notable, though, essentially calling Rovell “an idiot that is nitpicking her words” and going in hard on Rovell’s data, which includes recreational players and players who likely aren’t bound for a high-level competitive.
