how the hell did neil stay up?

Posted by CRUNCH31 on December 30, 2007 at 06:25 PM

don cherry said neil win the fight so.....cherry is dumb*** we all know. brash refuse to fight mcgrattan..why? may be because mcgrattan only plays a few shifts/game? clear win for donald.

Posted by JDForCommish on December 30, 2007 at 10:26 AM

wow. I hate Neil but he absolutely earned alot of respect from everybody for this. He manned up fought the best heavyweight, took his best punches and even landed a bomb at the end. Obviously a win for brash, but neil must have earned a ton of respect around the league for this.

Brashear domination

Posted by vuggieri on December 30, 2007 at 05:12 PM

Brashear won... but what a douche bag... wouldnt go the true heavyweight MCGRATTAN in the 1st but he goes to Neil... WAIT TIL MCGRATTAN GETS AHOLD OF HIM

Posted by tormakesmelaugh on December 31, 2007 at 02:40 PM

he stayed up because half the 14 (in total punches from brash) didn't connect or hit him on the back of the shoulder...he did take a few nice hits tho....And how everyone calls a win for Orr as i have too...against a flurry of Belaks punches and calls this a loss for Neil is beyond me..the winner is who is standing at the end...not who threw more..If mike Tyson beat the shit out of a guy for 11 rounds then gets knocked out in the doesn't go to decision.,..he loses..just like in a hockeyfight but you usually have about 30 seconds to determine the win...not 12 rounds..Neil standing over Brash on the ground..WIN NEIL Same with the Orr fight..he ended it and he won...maybe some of you hypocrites mght want to check your voting privelige at the door if you can't be consistant

Posted by renceoreilly on December 30, 2007 at 08:30 AM

Saw the game live. Brashear was challenged many times by McGrattan and Brash walked away!!!! Then after a clean hit by Neil on Backstrom, Brash wanted Neil. Neil is Ottawas middle weight... McGrats is the heavyweight. I like Brash but was very dissapointed he wallked away from two strong attempts by McGrats. Congrats McGrats for doing your job, shame on you Brash for not tangling with the heavyweight.

Posted by penguinsfan123 on December 30, 2007 at 07:14 PM

kd win for neil just like bgl brash

Posted by mailman1194 on December 30, 2007 at 10:06 AM

Brashear with Philly could never get this punk to go, so better late than never as a Capital. Brashie doesn't even have his guard up because every time he's challenged Neil, he's never answered the bell. Now, we know why. That was a down right pummeling that brought the biggest smile to my face. Phuck, this just made my week. By the way, didn't see the challenge by "Glass Joe" McGratten. Probably did him a favor. To Sensenforcer: "To all you Neil haters, phuck you all" should be "To all you Sens haters, phuck you all". That's not nice or very sports-man-like. But this is: "To all you Sens, Neil, McGratts,etc fans, EAT A DICK!"

Posted by NoKnuckles on January 01, 2008 at 07:30 PM

I hate Brashear, but I love to see him beat up Neil because he's such a dirty player.

Posted by Riomouse911 on December 30, 2007 at 02:33 PM

Neil never hit Brashear "and deck him" as the announcers said. Landed on the cap of his shoulder pad. Brashear killed him. ( And I don't like huggy bear, but he won hands and fists down)

Posted by dropkick25 on January 01, 2008 at 01:50 AM

First off,I don't like either of these guys.Brash throws a ton, lands a couple to the face,6 to the back of the head,Neils takes em standing up and puts him on his back with 2 rights. Some may say he lost his balance,just like when he was hammering Domi that time and "slipped" as soon as Domi got in position to take his head off.Brash is one of the best,but has made an art form out of bailing the very few times he gets in trouble.

Posted by steakbelly8000 on December 30, 2007 at 06:43 PM

Brashear must be throwing muffins out there... He hits Neil with about 10-15 shots, and it does nothing... Neil hits Brashear twice at the end and DECKS HIM! Even the biased Caps announcer admits it... Big win for Neil against what I thought was a tough dude... ** By the way, for the unknowledgable fans talking about Brasehar and McGratton, McGratton destroyed Brash 2 years ago, when Donald was with Philly... It was a one-sided fight!

Posted by Xeshybrid on December 30, 2007 at 06:42 PM

Brashear was a pussy that game, Mcgrattan tried to fight him several times brashear never took match, so then he fights neil, which is not there toughest guy, brashear is a pussy.

Posted by awstin316 on December 30, 2007 at 09:46 AM

Wow, total domination by Brashear, and although he would have been winning on the judges score cards he got knocked the #@$% OUT by Neil. Brashear hits like a girl. He piled up the points with girly little lefts but then goes to sleep when Neil connects with 1 single thundering right. This is exactly why Brashear wouldn't challenge McGrattan. If Neil knocked him out with one punch Mcgrattan would probably have left Brashear the glass jawed bobblehead in a coma. Great fight by Brashear but he stuck his glass jaw out a little too far. Winner Neil with a knockout.

Posted by sens4 on October 26, 2008 at 02:01 PM

Brashear just threw small jabs. Neil threw harder punches even if there was fewer of them and Neil had the take down. Neil for the win.

Posted by sasso09 on December 31, 2007 at 10:54 PM

To all of you people talking about how brashear dodged mcgrattan, and brash is a puss... and to the dude posting a link of mcgrattan beatin brashear.. how about the three other fights of brashear man handling him? mcgrattan is a solid top 5 fighter but noone is on the same level as brashear and laraque

Posted by Leafs2006 on March 27, 2009 at 12:52 PM

well....2 great posts from 2 of the Seniorita's biggest fans....powwow...and gomermd......gomer, first of all, this blog is for fights....not for your evaluation of the mentality of other followers that actually comment about the you need a wahhhhhhhbulance for your tears as Christine got killed? And of can throw a brick at Neil and he'd eat it....real cerebral comment there, did you notice, powwow...that Christine got hammered?? I think you 2, pwowwow...and gomermd....should hump each others leg....Brash owned closed!

Posted by mojeff on December 30, 2007 at 11:34 PM

Brashear clearly won the fight and is a top heavy but not fighting McGrats shows why he isn't the most respected dude in the leaque, especially with the little dust up thing with hands at the end of the fight.

Posted by mAnYsTyLeS on January 02, 2008 at 02:16 PM

I hate that mutant. Brash for the win. Neil definitely hung in there though...

Posted by probie83 on January 01, 2008 at 04:54 PM

Why is he fighting Neil not Mcgrattan I hate both of these guys but It should have been McGrattan I actually earned a little respect for Neil.

Posted by nypd6476 on December 30, 2007 at 11:22 AM

Who ever says that this was a good fight and gives the win to Neil is either an Ottawa fan or an just a plain idiot. Brashear pounded him into the ground. I don't like either guy put I totally enjoyed watching Neil get his *** whooped. Next to Avery and Hollweg he is one of the dirtiest players in the game.

Posted by unvy on December 30, 2007 at 09:30 AM

Brashear hands down. Can't believe he wouldn't go with McGratton, though. Puss.

Posted by dala56 on December 30, 2007 at 07:52 AM

Wow Brashear can really throw them! Clear win for Brash. He prolly got in more shots in this fight then any other fight I've seen with him the last 2 seasons or so.

Posted by gilesy23 on January 02, 2008 at 11:39 AM

Brashear Through bombs..and Neil took them like a man but Donny gets the W!

Posted by nycbob on January 02, 2008 at 10:04 AM

I hate both of these guys, so some serious damage would have been nice. I'd hate brashear a lot less if he'd drop the showboat cr-p with hands after the fight. Neil took a bunch from a bigger guy and cracked him at the end. No need for the BS

Posted by JOCCOCHRIS on January 02, 2008 at 12:55 PM

most punches Brashear has thrown in years. If a few landed maybe Neil would have actually been hurt. Best punch-Neil, most misses-Brash

Posted by McGoon on June 25, 2008 at 10:38 PM

Brashears a fucking bitch, throws 20 lefts, 19 of them miss completely, Neil throws one, he goes down like a pile of bricks. Fight someone your own size you fcking bitch. Although, you got your knocked out by Neil.

Posted by wannago on December 30, 2007 at 09:14 PM

Brashear is a VAGINA. He will not fight the heavy on the opposition, instead fighting Neil at the end of a period. Neil gets my nod simply for staying in and taking the best this MONKEY has to offer. In between periods Brashear gets to boot up his steroid IV from the trainer and get someone else to piss for him if tested. What a puckbag.

Posted by umaksgx on December 30, 2007 at 06:31 PM

Donald did not get much, but Chris got one realy good.

Posted by The Mob on September 19, 2011 at 08:25 PM

Don't get fooled by Donny's bitch slapping. He's got nothing in those punches. Neil piles in the show - stopper at the end.

Posted by pitslam on December 30, 2007 at 05:14 PM

I give it to neil. Brasher fights a smaller man and turtles/falls once again when he is going to get hit. The pusyy will only fight when he is the only one with a hand free. I love the video of Chris Simon knocking his dumb ass out.

Posted by jasmine6979 on December 30, 2007 at 04:11 PM

during the first laraque/brash fight this year laraque hit brash several times, at the end of the fight brash connects with one laraque goes down. alot of people called brash the winner because of the kd. neil took several punches by brash , but connected with one at the end and down goes huggy bear. neil won this fight based on the kd. brash is not the champ, hes a big bitch.

Posted by billy jack on December 30, 2007 at 07:17 PM

neil took the punches,brashear takes one punch and goes down,if you cant take a punch you dont win,even thiough i hate neil brash didnt hurt him but he dropped brash,once brash gets hit he goes down or hugs,.

Posted by RandyBoyd on December 31, 2007 at 03:43 PM

Posted by dchockeyfan on December 30, 2007 at 11:19 AM

awstin316.....your an idiot. Rebel Banker... thanks for sharing with these morons why brash didn't bother with Mgrats. You guys make Mgrats sound like he some beast. Watch some of his recent fights, he's looked horrible. Don't think brash is to worried about him. Not to mention, now that Brash is getting more ice time, he's only throwing when he needs to teach punks like Neil a beating.

Posted by westernNY on December 31, 2007 at 07:44 AM

Don Cherry according to insiders had at most 4 fights a year in his playing days in the AHL for the Rochester Americans. He was a spare part when it came to the rough stuff and the teams he played on had a real bull for a fighter in RED ARMSTRONG AND LARRY HILLMAN. Cherry according to those who saw him said he was not the guy to stand up on a regular basis. I guess in his old age, Cherry tries to make himself some kind of fighting expert and rewrite his career! What a joke this guy is!

Posted by CapsFan39 on January 05, 2008 at 05:50 PM

Great fight Brashear definetly won this one, even though he took a fall at the end. But Neil got wat was comin to him, and Brashear definetly took care of him. I like how Brashear wiped his hands of after the fight!

This should have been Brashear vs Mcgratton. I guess Brash prefers to fight middleweights.

Posted by preds321 on December 31, 2007 at 02:35 PM

first of all, I was impressed with Neil's ability to stand in there and take that beating. But the win clearly goes to Brashear, although the hand-dusting thing is pretty ridiculous. what an ass.....

Posted by crazybubs on December 30, 2007 at 02:40 PM

Brash with the win, I'm impressed that neil went toe to toe with him and didn't go down, nice shot at the end too. Brash is a heavy weight, neil not so much, but as Cherry likes to say, he's farmboy tough.

Posted by Andyman on December 30, 2007 at 05:48 PM

Not a fan of Brashear but he was clearly the winner here. Kudos to Neil for not turtling as he usually does against a heavyweight but after getting his bell rung, he pulls Brashear down to end his pummeling. I loved the fact Brashear does the dusting of the hands because it is something that Neil would do.

Posted by Wensinkfan on January 01, 2008 at 09:44 PM

I would love to see Brashear take on a heavyweight next time. As for this fight Neil took them both to the ice to get it over with. Winner - Brashear

Posted by CocoQuaker7 on December 30, 2007 at 09:35 AM

Brashear really laid the wood on Neil. Give Neil credit for standing in there and taking the lefts.

Ok all you Neil markers need to get real.Brashear beat Neil like a red headed stepchild.Thank you Donald Brashear.I like how Neil tried to hold on for dear life but Brash shoved him off and beat the crap out of that loser Neil.Hey blackngold Neil stayed up because Brash held him up so he could show him how its done.

Posted by Realist24 on December 30, 2007 at 03:33 PM

This fight made me lose complete respect for Brashear. He's a complete coward when confronted by a challenge. McGrattan tried to fight Brashear but DB ran away like a little girl and tries to fight Chris Neil, who is shorter and 30 lbs lighter. Brashear and McGrattan are in the same class, but then I guess Brashear had good reason to run away from Gratz, he must've remembered last time they fought:

Posted by Flames9339 on December 30, 2007 at 08:50 PM

Neil isn't a middle weight he's well over 200lbs, but from this clip he's should probably stick to fighting them.

Posted by JABUSHFSU on January 01, 2008 at 08:17 PM

Posted by gw19lax on December 30, 2007 at 11:50 PM

Regardless of the fact that Brashear was on his back when this ended, that was onesided and I guarantee that after left hook number 13 Neil realized this was a Brashear

I agree with slshbleed, no need to try to show a guy up, especially when you're the one getting off your back. Not saying Brash didn't win, he landed a bushel of shots to Neil. I just hate trying to show someone up. If you win the fight, you don't have to broadcast it, everybody knows. I don't try to tell me it's to intimidate the other team, again I say the fight says enough. Credit to Neil for taking shots and still trying to throw at the end. But a decisive win for Brash. Too bad him and Big George didn't open up like this, heh heh.

Posted by Gunslinger on January 02, 2008 at 11:06 AM

Posted by mikebflorida on December 30, 2007 at 11:19 PM

Holy crap. Neil has a hard head but I can't give him any kind of win for one punch. He literally ate about 15 shots. Gotta give him credit for taking a punch though and for taking on Brash who is out of his league. Win to Brashear

Posted by Super Mario 66 on January 01, 2008 at 09:26 AM

Brashear lost his balance at the end, not from KO punches from Neil. Anyone who calls this a draw or a win for Neil should be banned from this site. Also, if a guy gets the crap beat out of him then lands a glancing blow at the end of the fight to take the other guy down.....he doesn't win the fight! If it's a complete knockout, sure, but not if he pulls the guy down.

Posted by Sasky001 on December 31, 2007 at 12:06 AM

No question Brashear dominated this fight. However, I have a problem with all the people saying his punches are devastating. He landed 20 lefts hooks (remember Brasiere is a south paw,) and it didn't even seem to stun Neil. And, as usual, huggy bear goes down as soon as Neil lands one punch.

Posted by Sukoshi84 on December 30, 2007 at 08:10 PM

Posted by fwg214 on January 01, 2008 at 10:53 PM

There are takedowns from a punch that turns a fight (Brashear-Laraque), and there are takedowns when a guy is trying avoid getting crushed (Neal-Brashear). Neal was crying "save me" with this take down. Clear win Brashear.

Posted by DGetz on January 01, 2008 at 01:04 PM

Brashear simply dominated. It ended with Brashear going down, but it wasn't because of a KO punch by Neil. Neil just shoved him off-balance and Brashear fell.

Posted by KDOGG on December 30, 2007 at 03:35 PM

Awesome to see Neil get his ass kicked all he ever does is fights guys smaller then him he finally fights a heavy and the end result his he gets his lunch handed to him .

Posted by wallysy1 on December 30, 2007 at 06:38 PM

Funny to see senator fans determine who is a puss. Neil is the master at finding the weak dude--cheap shotting him and then fighting. Now he is faced with an actual fighter..gets his ass kicked and the best senator fans can do not admit defeat...its to bash brahear for not going with mcgratton. well....take a lesson from yourselves....when you like neil for going after smaller guys--then dont all of a sudden realize its not manly. neil is the cheapest player in the league and fans all over the nhl are happy to watch this fight over and over. and in true ass fashion-senator fans make neil the winner...what a bunch of dopes.

Posted by KORPI24 on December 31, 2007 at 10:32 AM

First of all, Don Cherry can say whatever the hell he wants to. He's about the greatest thing that has ever happened to hockey. I live in the U.S. and wish Don was the Commissioner of the NHL, then it would be worth watching again. Second, Brashear pounded Neil, but he wanted no part of McGrattan. No surprise, because Brashear was running for the showers balling his eyes out last fight I saw between them.

Posted by SeanProblem42 on December 30, 2007 at 03:44 PM

I think that too many of you are missing the main point of this fight. Seems that there are a lot of Neil haters. He didn't get his ass kicked, he wasn't even remotely stunned. Obviously Brashear won this fight on points and punches landed, but Neil showed that he can take everything Brash could throw at him and not even bat an eye. He took shots to get some in and he even showed that he obviously has the strength and balance to hang in there with anyone. That is probably the longest fight Brashear has been in in years and I give Neil mad props for going toe to toe with a disputed champion and you all should too.

Posted by Rebel Banker on December 30, 2007 at 10:29 AM

HOLY JACKHAMMERS BATMAN!!! donnie b hit him w/ so many lefts neil was cryin for a right...poor guy collapsed from exhaustion finally... why would brash fight mcgratts when his team was up big? why give a guy that plays 3 mins/gm a chance to get his team pumped up? he went after neil because he was starting to run around and needed to be put in check... yeah, the guy drops 'em w/ laraque and orr but is afraid of mcg...ok

Posted by brannonkevinm on January 01, 2008 at 06:36 PM

From McGratten: "I thought [Neil] did a great job, that he came back and won the fight at the end." How can Neil eat 15+ power shots without responding, then fall forward and have it considered a win?

Posted by bostonrs555 on December 31, 2007 at 01:31 PM

Brashear.....We love him, We hate him, He makes us laugh, He makes us cry, and Brash does what Brash wants to do!!!!! I don't get the picking spots either, maybe Neil's been running Cap's!!!! But Win to Brashear by a pube!!!

Posted by NYR-Enforcers on December 31, 2007 at 10:40 AM

wow absolute domination by brash landing about 10 solid punches, neil may have got 1 or 2 and did get the takedown but thats not much. i give credit to neil for fighting 1 of the toughest guys in the NHL and a fighter much bigger and above his weight class. i dont like brashear but he didnt dissapoint in this fight just destroying neil, im suprised neil lasted as long as he did.

D-brash lit neil up like a christmas tree. his left hooks are deadly. i don't why more guys try and tie up that left arm and force him to go right. i would rather throw with my left and have him throw with his right than the other way around.

Brash won, no doubt. But respect to Neil for standing all bombs and sending down Brashear in the end. It's great to see Brash throwing them after all these hugging years...

Posted by Jake98 on December 30, 2007 at 10:29 AM

Wow Brashear gave Neil a lesson. Brash dominated this one. Neil didn´t stand a chance.

Posted by 2001GT on January 03, 2008 at 02:07 AM

One of the biggest heavyweight beatings of the year, Doanld all the way had em running scared. If you think because Neil took 15 shots to the head and at the end gets the go ahead in the fight because of the takedown....your crazy, you either never played hockey or never fought much.

Posted by cbeam87 on December 30, 2007 at 12:56 PM

Okay lets get this straight, Brashear doesn't shy away from anyone. He's fought Laraque twice this year. He fights every other teams heavyweight. The reason he didnt fight Gratts is bc gratts isnt a "hockey player." Thats why he gets benched every other night bc he's out there just trying to pick fights. Guys like Brash and BGL are out there first to play hockey and try to help their team win. They dont need to take every challenge from Goons like Gratts, in fact they dont take every challenge. They want to stay on the ice. Brash has gone with Gratts before anyway. Neil is a punk and a puss who always hits dirty against smaller skilled guys (ex. Chris Drury). Backstrom was skating into the corner, with his head down looking at the puck, engaged by another OTT defensemen when Neil comes from the blind side and crushes him with his elbow coming up. Not a clean hit. He deserved what he got, and he didnt even land at the end. Brash lost his balance and fell. Brash, atta boy...

Brash took care of business,showed why he wears the belt.

Posted by ufclover on December 31, 2007 at 12:16 AM

i watched this game and brashear is a fucking peice of shit not too long b4 this mcgrattan was challenging brashear to a fight but the monkey bitch backed away like the little girl he is,even after the game don cherry even said that hes the biggest phony in the game.brashear landed alot of punches to the side of chris's head but neil landed to good punches at the end that dropped brashear

Posted by boomer belak on December 31, 2007 at 11:35 PM

Back again. Can't get enough of it. Neil is such a goof. As are the goofy sen fans. Grats finished as fighter with shoulder problems. Brash saved his butt by ignoring him.

Posted by laxman17 on December 30, 2007 at 02:38 PM

Brash domination. and hes fought and beaten many a fighter the level of mcgratton throughout his career so dnt even say he was scared. that said i was very disapointed brash didnt wana go, mcgrats would of given him a much better fight. all that aside, another brash domination in the fashion thats become usual this year (except 4 that hugfest w big georges last wk)2 bad he lost his balance before he could get the takedown

Posted by Juha82 on December 31, 2007 at 06:30 AM

Neil ate punches here, but stand up. He got Brashear off-balanced but more a bad balance to Brashear. Brash dominated the fight. A clear win for him.

Posted by djaye on December 30, 2007 at 04:09 PM

Props to Neil for going with ( debatable ) the champ or one of the top guys in the league!

Posted by Thunderbolt on December 30, 2007 at 08:29 AM

What no theatrics from Neil after the fight. Maybe that headache he has, had something to do with it. He was no match for Brashear.

Posted by Canuck22 on December 30, 2007 at 05:53 AM

Neil deserves it for all the shite he does on the ice! Too bad Brashear didn't knock him out!

Posted by Peters_4_Prez on December 30, 2007 at 08:32 AM

not a huge brash fan, but it was nice to see Neil get tuned-up!

Posted by slshbleed on December 30, 2007 at 04:09 PM

I don't like the Brashear "dusting" off his hands at the end. He wins, but why show a guy up like that?

Posted by pogo619 on December 30, 2007 at 07:25 PM

Never underestimate Brashear. I'd love to have him back in orange/black. He beat Neil easily in this one and I was happy to see it. I don't have an issue with Brashear not fighting McGratton. You have to pick your spots. It may not have been the right spot for Brash to accept the offer. To put some of you at ease, Brashear is the only heavy to handle Laraque. So say what you want, McGratton wants no parts of Laraque so he aint so tough...

Posted by firebirds98 on December 30, 2007 at 12:08 PM

Neil got manhandled. Brash woulda whooped up on Mcgratts or w/e his name is too.

Posted by Brashearfan on December 31, 2007 at 10:31 AM

Pure piston power by Brash.

Posted by brad houghton on December 30, 2007 at 10:07 AM

Brash fans help me out??? Brash gets beaten piller to post by BGL and knocked down three times and lands a two late punchs to knock down BGL and you make the argument the last knock down wins????? if that's was the case then....why is this not a Neil win for the late knock down....same thing boys only thing is Neil stayed on his feet and didn't get knocked down three times?? anyways i would say Brash won big just like he lost huge to BGL in their only real fight this year....but the same guys that voted win Brash against BGL for the late KD are probably not giving the win to Neil in this one for the late KD....keep the homer goggles on guys. cudo's to Neil for hanging in and scoring the late KD...makes you wonder about Brash's power??

Posted by DetroitIan on December 30, 2007 at 08:53 PM

Wow...another great showing for Brashear. Not only cn Brashear punch extremely fast, but he's got alot of power with those fast shots. Where as most guys in the league lose alot of power when they try to punch real fast. Brashear is a beast. Although, he's lucky he didn't go with McGrattan again. For anyone who hasn't seen it. Grats whooped that ass.

Posted by mod13 on December 30, 2007 at 10:26 AM

Brashear = P*SSY Props for Neil Brashear wouldn't go with McG earlier, but chooses a willing cruiser weight later. Mind you Paddock should have had McG out there for the last 2 seconds!!! I GUARUNTEE brashear WOULDN"T HAVE GONE WITH MCGRATTAN!!!

Posted by montanna4 on December 30, 2007 at 10:20 AM

Neil got what he deserved. As for Mcgratt's, he has challenged Brash a few times but Brash never answerd the bell. However, Mcgratt's does have a glass jaw. Just ask Boogard or Brandon Sugden in the minors. You tube mcgratt's and Sugden.

Posted by Sensfandan on December 30, 2007 at 10:07 AM

Brashear wins over a middle weight very tough Brash.... Too f%&*n chicken to go with Grats though ! Probably remembers Grats knocking him down with a right last year.

Posted by captain goone on December 30, 2007 at 10:43 AM

brashear won but what a pussy...he was too afriad to fight mcgrattan IF YOU ACTUALLY DID WATCH THE GAME mcgrattan chased brashear around the ice in the first and BRASHEAR WAS TOO AFRAID TO FIGHT HIM then he goes after a lightheavyweight...if u watched the canadian feed on cbc don cherry rips brash

Posted by drop_the_gloves on December 30, 2007 at 10:17 AM

Brashear proved once again he is the heavyweight champ! Total domination. Neil has had this coming for years. Neil never touched Brashear.

Posted by ETR on December 30, 2007 at 01:33 PM

Never liked Brashear, but he wins most of his fights. This one was no exception. Easy win for him.

Posted by tsbjr33 on December 30, 2007 at 05:58 PM

I hate Chris Neil, glad he got pounded. I am however surprised that he acctually fought someone of merit, not like his other fights were he takes on lesser opponents...

Posted by 23rough on December 30, 2007 at 12:12 PM

brashear did his job.the reason he didn`t fight mc nominutes,because he actually takes regular shifts.brashear will get him on new year`s day! All you brashear hater`s tune in 4 p.m.

Posted by mohanrisen on December 30, 2007 at 09:26 AM

Neil is a punk and got what he deserved, a steady diet of lefts. Neil embarrassed himself, he needs to stick to chasing down smaller players and cheap shots, that's his game.

Posted by BattleAxe13 on December 30, 2007 at 06:26 PM

Nice takedown by Neil but seriously, what idiots voted draw or in favor of Neil. It wasn't even close. Brashear landed more shots like 100-1. I was surprised to see Neil take him on.

Posted by trpaulson on December 30, 2007 at 01:58 PM

Brashear wins only because he landed more punches. He got knocked on his ass at the end but gets up dusting off his hands like he did something. What a hemorrhoid.

Posted by dcage on December 30, 2007 at 10:36 AM

Brashear was totally in control. Neil is a tough kid but he needs to fight guys in his own weight class. Let the super heavy weights fight chris. Take on tucker, mair and that punk avery and beat the heck out of them. Chris, thanks for turning me on to this website.

Posted by powpow on December 31, 2007 at 08:10 AM

Neil is a can smash him with a brick and it won't hurt him.

Posted by Ibby50 on December 30, 2007 at 10:32 AM

What a frigging chump. I used to love brashear, now he proves that he is a total loser copout jerkoff!!.. Taking on a middleweight and showing off after. If I was coach, I would have paid Gratz to outright injure Ovechkin to teach ASShear a lesson. Maybe Niel is a mouthy pain in the arse, but dammit he held in there. WIN NEIL for not getting KO'd and because Brashear is a frigging ARSEWIPE LOSER. Oh and BTW, look up Neil's fights, he'll take on heavyweights and at least try. FU ASShear!! Fricken Frog.

Posted by SensEnforcer on December 30, 2007 at 06:56 AM

Yeah Canuck22.You probably didn´t watched when Brash turns down from fight with Gratts eh?Win for Brash hands down but he is ****** chickhen!!! Cluck,cluck!CHICKHEN!I gives props to Neil,he isn´t chickehen.How told Don Cherry...."This isn´t fighting this is funny".And to all Neil haters: **** YOU ALL!!!

Posted by sedras on December 31, 2007 at 12:07 PM

Brashear threw a bunch of fast punches that looked impressive, but had little or no effect. Neil threw more conservatively, and with more purpose. His punches had much more impact, and I give this dust-up to Neil.
