Is there even a reason to talk about this fight. You have this goon in Hartnell fighting someone that hasn't been in a fight in over 3 years. Stafford goes up to Hartnell in defense of several of his players that Hartnell just cross-checked in the back. Hartnell is one of the dirtiest players in the league!!!
I thought Stafford did pretty good.. and honestly i think he deserves the win. Hartnell mind was thinking "yep finally landed some good shots, better go down before I get beat down by a non-fighter" Stafford Finished well. So he gets my vote.
Welcome Back Sabrehatred jr...You must explain the Jr. ? Please tell me you did not spread your dysfunctual viral seed... Pleased to meet you, Hope you guess my name...Hartnell with a good right, gets the slight edge....Gonna be a fun year with sabrehatred back, Yeah, Yeah Yeah. !!!
Stafford didn't win - true. But, for a guy that has't dropped gloves in 3 years, on a team that is known as being soft and who is trying to change that image, this fight was huge. Hartnell cheap shotted Pommers (I think) earlier in the game, and then he took a shot at Ennis (again, I think), and Stafford had enough. Good for him for stepping up. He might not be able to fight; he certainly can't go toe to toe with Hartnell, but that fact that he did was HUGE.
