Easier said than done but I don't get Rosehill...
You would think after eating the first five solid ones that he'd change his game plan. If the 'Brownie' approach is not working, your instincts would tell you to bail out and try something different !
(McGratt's first two bleeding knuckles shows he's using the correct knuckles to land with.)
Gave it a 7.
What the hell is Rosehill's face and skull made out of? Rosehill should rethink his approach on the square off . He really shouldn't lead with his chin except that his face and skull are made of some indestructible, mystery material. Rosehill gets the Homer Simpson skull strength award. Rosehill's toughness is impressive.
Why does McG get a misconduct? I think Rosehill had the gloves off first. If he got the misconduct for the showboat after the fight that would be ok with me.
First off, this was one of the better tilts in a while. Gratts just overpowered Rosey here. Not many guys just stand there and stare punches down while firing their own anymore! MacIntyre and Orr are two more that come to mind, and they are probably the only two heavies around that could possibly hand Gratts a loss.
As for the the celebration after, I have NO problem with it. Gratts earned it with an entertaining bout like that AND if it bothers other players then seine will have to take him on and give him a beating to stop it from happening. Domi used to do that all of the time and no one had a problem with it. They r pumped up with adrenaline...sometimes they just act on emotion. Not a bog deal unless the guy that lost is unconscious or something.
McGrattan all the way, nice to see Rosehill uses this site and votes for himself as the winner. If it wasn't Rosehill then some leaf fans are hopefully joking, i'm a leafs fan by the way. I watched this on Leafs TV and had a good laugh at Joe Bowen's comment about McGrattans knuckles taking the worst of the fight, fairly sure Roshills face felt worse than those leather wrapped battering rams.
Rosehill proves he has a titanium chin, taking a terrifying number of direct and full power punches from one of the hardest hitting heavyweights in the league and never once looks like he's going down. Gratts definitely won dominantly, but give Rosehill credit, he took a ton and kept returning, only landing a few, but staying in the fight 'til the end. Great tilt.
