unfortunately for all the voters, neither landed a punch

Posted by tonetone1 on November 14, 2011 at 12:33 PM

Hardly a fight, both threw two or three hard ones and then tripped. obvious draw.

I don't think Bradley connected on those shots to the back of Rinaldo's head; he threw him down with one arm more than anything. Rinaldo had just come out of the box on a charging call. He flies around the ice with wild abandon and hits anything that moves. Bradley wanted him to know it wasn't appreciated. One thing I've noticed--when the Flyers have Rinaldo in the lineup, they play an uptempo offense and win.

Rinaldo's a d-bag.

Posted by LegionofDoom95 on November 14, 2011 at 05:03 AM

Rinaldo can fight its just his size that he looses many fights because of him being fearless and he would fight almost anybody. As sad as i am to say this its a W for Bradley but hopefully Rinaldo picks up some more experience in the NHL and win a lot more fights.

nice win for bradley.

I' ve always compared (unpopularly) Bradley to Brown.. i.e. under-rated fighters that often give the ''up, and comer, wanna-be's'' a surprise, reality check. Although, I am starting to appreciate Rinaldo's fearless, pinball, style... this fight was won on experience.

bradley idnt land much,he won this one though...gave it 4

The best thing here was what led up to the fight. The Zac Attack Steamrolled Kapetshop 2 minutes before. Even though both feeds thought it was a pretty clean shot, it was so vicious that the refs used the "defenseless player clause" because he didn't see the Zac attack coming. As a result this was a one sided fight with a furious Bradley stepping up for his teammate. The Zac attack is not going to win too many of these because of his size but he is fun to watch.

bradley gets the win.

Posted by fernben8 on November 14, 2011 at 12:04 PM

Good showing by Bradley though not many punches connected. Another 10 lbs.on him and a few more fights under his belt and Rinaldi will be another terrier, similar to the likes of Dorsett...and I say that in a good way !

next

Rinaldo's helmet was already off, but it looks pretty cool when you throw an upper like that and see a helmet rocket into the air. Bradley.

Posted by moramike on November 13, 2011 at 07:49 PM

Slight edge to Bradley, but not a lot of punches landed in this one - maybe a good upper cut toward the end but the camera angle wasn't that good. I like the way Bradley handled himself in this situation. He went after Rinaldo for an earlier hit, got his shots in and then let it go once the guy was down.

Posted by Clark75 on November 15, 2011 at 10:29 AM

Wow! Bradley actually won a fight and wasn't gushing blood everywhere. lol

Posted by mckendo83 on November 14, 2011 at 08:56 AM

I'm not FOR the instigator rule, but if its there, thats clearly time to use it.

Posted by Sasky001 on November 14, 2011 at 06:47 PM

Rinaldo fights like the soccer player.

Posted by hkhk on November 13, 2011 at 09:23 PM

rinaldo is scrappy but the flyers have to dress shelley ..we need old time hockey back .

Posted by Big Little Tank on December 10, 2011 at 12:35 AM

Rinaldo....Has he even won a fight? Can he even stand up on his skates? Why is he playing in The Show?!?!?!?!?!

Posted by hal29 on November 14, 2011 at 07:48 PM

Bradley with the easy win and big uppercut.

Posted by FightsOfHockey on November 13, 2011 at 09:22 PM

bradley wins easy

Posted by tsquared on November 14, 2011 at 07:12 PM

Bradley by a nose! That uppercut shot is underrated.

Posted by jaycee1742 on November 14, 2011 at 05:03 AM

kind of a quick fight

Posted by GreatMurray on November 14, 2011 at 06:27 AM

YEEHAW! Bradley wins a fight. Philly got cheesesteaked!

Posted by Thursday385 on November 15, 2011 at 08:10 AM

Matty B woulda won wether they squared off or not

Posted by EDDUBBS on November 14, 2011 at 06:43 AM

Anytime a guy drops his gloves then engages I disqualify him as a cheapshot. This bedbug Bradley has a reputation as a punk so i am giving the win to Rinaldo, much like the award of the boxing maych to Bernard Hopkins, a personal friend of mine. PS - They should disband the Panthers and the lightning since there is no support in FLA for these teams -they don;t even support baseball and football!! It is a retirement state and that is the community they serve best.

Posted by ETHREE on November 13, 2011 at 09:51 PM

In regards to that charging penalty that someone referenced in order to downplay Rinaldo's abilities, I suggest you look at it again. No need for a penalty other than he destroyed Kopecky and the refs figured they needed to call something because it was so bad. The hit was clean, and amazing like most of his checks. he can hit with the best of them especially since he's 5'11 and 180... Bradley wins after he runs Rinaldo down, square away like a real fighter and Rinaldo wins hands down. Needless to say Bradley wins this one, but it needs to be said that Rinaldo is here to stay, plays with grit and heart and the Flyers need someone like him as does every team. Hitters are b!tched out every time they throw a nice hit, the people that criticize are killing hockey. BTW well said BooSanta, although I think Rinaldo will win many more..

Posted by motcrue68 on November 14, 2011 at 10:34 PM

Pussy move by Bradley. You jump a guy after he hits your player not three minutes later. I guess he was afraid to give Rinaldo a chance to square up a tee off on him.

Posted by dorian on November 15, 2011 at 06:57 AM

Win for Bradley?

Posted by CloweStaubi on November 13, 2011 at 07:58 PM

lots of punches by bradley, but nothing landed... good to see bradley not bleed this time around

Posted by chad420 on November 14, 2011 at 11:41 AM

win MB...gotta love Rinaldo though

Posted by travist on November 15, 2011 at 12:32 AM

bradley was mad.

Posted by muskokadangler on November 13, 2011 at 07:30 PM

Certainly have to give that baby to Bradley

Posted by kkdowning on November 14, 2011 at 09:56 PM

Bradley with the win and no need for a blood transfusion after the game (so a double win). The Caps are missing the Bradley Fighting Vehicle this year.

Posted by dutchman on November 14, 2011 at 07:25 AM

I feel that Rinaldo already got payback from the hit by getting the hit right before the fight, and it's so cheap to run up to a player and just fight w/o giving him a chance to ready himself like bradley did.
