    If someone's trying to murder someone with a baseball bat and someone's yelling at that person to stop, is that a feud between the baseball bat wielder and the person yelling at the baseball bat wilder?

Is that a feud? I don't know. To me, it doesn't seem like a feud. To me, it seems I'm pointing out the fact that he's a terrible man whose words have resulted in death.
