Cote with the mean hit, size disadvantage, yet early lefts in the fight, but Shelley with the comeback rights makes this draw-ish in my books.

Posted by megnlou06 on October 19, 2008 at 02:28 AM

Draw! I cant stand shelley but I still notice a good bout and that my friends was a good bout!

Posted by Gunslinger on October 20, 2008 at 05:00 PM

Based on what I've seen so far this season it looks like the ol' Gunslinger may have to eat some crow considering how much I ragged on Cote last year. Oh well, as a Flyer fan, thats a meal I'm happy to eat. Mmm, tastes like chicken.

Posted by gdameo on October 20, 2008 at 10:00 AM

Good fight by them. I like Cote's fight style, he's one of the only few fighters in the NHL that is willing to exchange the punches and take some punches unlike Parros, Peters, Brash, etc.

Posted by hockey_nut69 on October 19, 2008 at 02:27 PM

just your average hockey fight!!

Posted by JABUSHFSU on October 19, 2008 at 09:52 AM

good fight. -cote was wiping him at first-shelly came back at the end but not enough for a win

Posted by QUIGGS22 on October 19, 2008 at 10:57 AM

Draw,,looking forward to the rematch that will take place Weds. night !

Posted by mr. putzoo on October 20, 2008 at 07:22 PM

Cote is a tomato can....a real crowd pleaser by being a punching bag.

Posted by pogo619 on October 19, 2008 at 06:55 PM

Don't understand the Flyer haters... Anyone that is NOT a Flyers hater would see what really happened in this fight. Cote early, Shelley later in the fight. Cote gives away size, Cote's tough. BGL said it best, pound for pound Cote is the toughest fighter in the league... This was a draw and nothing else.

Posted by dukeofearle on October 19, 2008 at 02:10 AM

Cote is easily becoming one of the most exciting fighters to watch. he throws bombs and will take on anyone. Draw on this one, but pretty close to being a Cote edge.

Posted by Poop Jack Pappy on October 19, 2008 at 09:15 PM

Both guys landed some solid punches. Entertaining scrap. Draw

Posted by bostonrs555 on October 19, 2008 at 10:53 AM

I see a draw here, maybe a slight edge to Shells.... but this Cote is a pleasure to watch. No Chuck and Duck Here folks!!!!!

Posted by BigPapa08 on October 19, 2008 at 01:13 PM

Cote is becoming this generations version of Stan Jonathan, wins some, loses some but will give as good as he gets.

Posted by FlyersDosage on October 21, 2008 at 07:34 AM

both guys trading...Cote early, Shelley later...easy one to call - Draw & kudos to both fighters...love to see Cote take on any & all comers!

Posted by flyboy88 on October 19, 2008 at 07:37 AM

IDK if there are Flyer haters on this board or if everyone is being honest, but Cote didn't lose that fight. I watch every Flyers game and Riley Cote is a tough SOB. He trades with everyone, and hasn't been knocked down yet. This was a pure draw.

Posted by iluvdonuts on October 19, 2008 at 01:55 PM

Cote held his own. Slight Slight SLIGHT edge to Shelley

Posted by beantown on October 21, 2008 at 06:52 PM

My friend was at the game, right on the glass where the fight started. HE said that Cote started with a vicious left that rung Shelley's bell. You cant really see it on the video, except at the beginning of the replay. Obviously Shelley shook it off and went for the jersey pull when he knew Cote was gonna start winding up. Slight edge to Shelley overall. Close to a draw. Anytime a Flyer is involved in a fight you have to take the poll on here and add 20% or so to the flyer to get an accurate bead on the fight-- considering all the flyer-haters that are out there.

Posted by tattooedkingpin on October 19, 2008 at 10:49 AM

Great fight. gonna call that a draw

Posted by pjfoster13 on October 19, 2008 at 11:24 PM

close fight, lots of punches thrown. I think Cote is the best fighter in the NHL and shelley is certainly no slouch. Cote never disappoints. i couldn't find a clear winner, draw for me

Posted by Bear72 on October 19, 2008 at 10:53 AM

Good scrap one of shellys better bouts against a young upcoming tough guy

Posted by bgbdbrew70 on October 20, 2008 at 03:04 AM

nice to see a flyer get waxed for a dirty hit.they must practice that.

Posted by jaken99can on October 20, 2008 at 08:41 PM

Cote got what he derserved for taking a run at Boyle

Posted by trollio on October 18, 2015 at 11:25 PM

Shelley with the win, Did cement head Cote ever win a fight?

Posted by 2probert4 on October 19, 2008 at 09:54 AM

You never see Cote in one of those hugfests like Brashear is famous for. Guy is a scrapper even though he did lose this one.

Posted by Jellyczar on October 19, 2008 at 09:20 PM

Cote was outhit by Shelley.....

Posted by SirYohans on October 19, 2008 at 10:15 AM

I gave it to Shelley for obviously getting the better of that exchange. I know I've dissed Cote in the past but the guy is game and I'm starting to love his fearlessness. Always down to trade blows and put on a show and never EVER declines a fight. The dude is plain crazy because he's always taking on guys who know what they're doing out there. Also it seems, for the most part, Cote is still standing at the end.

Posted by TheBomb413 on October 19, 2008 at 09:43 AM

All Shelley. Too much size and experience for Cote to handle as it is in alot of his fights.

Posted by GrrrHockey.com on October 19, 2008 at 06:06 AM

like somone said earlier... everytime cote fights... the crowd wins! :-) this guy is pure hockey fight entertainment!

Posted by Filthadelphia on October 24, 2008 at 10:35 PM

GEEZ! Isn't Riley going to win a fight this year? Shelly wins this one.

Posted by whasittoya on October 19, 2008 at 05:46 PM

Shelley's always entertaining. Could have been better though, it ended too soon.

Posted by Pittsburgh Dan on October 21, 2008 at 08:26 PM

Cote is 0-2-1 on the year.

Posted by SCOTTSO on October 19, 2008 at 08:11 AM


Posted by Wensinkfan on October 19, 2008 at 02:42 PM

Shelley got more in than Cote did by far. I love the Cote fights but this one goes easily to Shelley for more punches connecting and the sweater to end it. Very close but not domination.

Posted by mrunohoo on October 20, 2008 at 07:39 PM

He may not win all of his fights, but Cote is the funnest to watch. Hardley a dull fight with him.

Posted by jealeman on October 19, 2008 at 02:34 AM

Cote stood toe to toe, but I give the edge to Shelley as he looked much more sharp in this bout.

Posted by eadamson on October 20, 2008 at 12:56 AM

As visible at the end of the clip, most of Cote's shots in the beginning flurry were totally ineffective. Shelley landed some straight shots right to Cote's face. Shelley gets the win.

Posted by vortases002 on October 19, 2008 at 12:24 PM

Cote is tough and will drop the gloves with anyone. Jody will too, but he is not the fighter he was three years ago but won't ever back down. Gotta love him! Jody wins TKO! Great fight and effort by both. Can't wait to see Cote take on DB for the Caps.

Posted by PastorJ on October 20, 2008 at 11:59 AM

Shelley definitely lands more, but Cote never quits. Good fight.

Posted by thegreg on October 19, 2008 at 12:15 PM

Good scrap Though this one appears to be closer than it is, Shelley lands more facial blows. Shelley with the win.

Posted by tplop103 on October 21, 2008 at 02:42 PM

Shelly Dominates this fight from the beginning. At least Cote tried. Shelley hands down.

Posted by qmchugh on October 19, 2008 at 07:49 PM

good scrap. both landed some, Shelley landed more. Cote's a tough kid.

Posted by Goon24 on October 19, 2008 at 06:53 PM

ok fight shelly wins but boogaard will kill him

Posted by smwarpig63 on October 23, 2008 at 02:54 PM

This was barely a win by shelley

Posted by Ragtop1day on October 19, 2008 at 08:41 AM

Shelley was better....not much separated these two......if Cote was 6'4" instead of 6'1"....

Posted by kingofkings1124 on October 19, 2008 at 10:04 AM

Decent fight, but really not close... Cote threw a few good shots early but got nearly dominated in how many quality shots landed to the head. Anybody outside of Philly votes this for Shell

Posted by tomales on October 19, 2008 at 02:55 AM

Atta boy Jody!! We haven't had a decent guy since Parker (hurt too often), and McSorley (my favorite but too many battles by the time he got to us). JS seems much stronger this year. Already several good fights this season.

Posted by Humper on October 19, 2008 at 11:07 AM

Good fight, Shelley all the way.

Posted by rugby on October 20, 2008 at 11:32 AM

Almost every bout on here now is the result of a guy getting thumped with a clean bodycheck. I like that it creates the fights, but it shouldn't be the catalyst to every fight. It's time some players manned up and learned how to take a hit.

Posted by mcpheefan on October 19, 2008 at 10:26 PM

cote is fearless when it comes to defense he throws them and where they land he takes his chances , this is his second beating in a week. shelly is a big warrior and is in a different weight class!!!

Posted by pens08 on October 26, 2008 at 09:41 PM

i love to see a stat for how many shots cote winds up taking compared to what he gives over a season. hes a tough kid but he seems to eat more than his fair share of shots during a fight

Posted by LAKINGSNUT on October 19, 2008 at 03:59 AM

Shelley landed more quality punches in this fight! i think he proved his point.

Posted by siltmipa on October 19, 2008 at 01:40 AM

Normally I hate Jody┬┤s way to fight, now I was amazed, W JS

Posted by slshbleed on October 19, 2008 at 11:30 AM

Cote tried to re-grip and get into a better position to throw. Shelly tagged him and took over the fight. The problem with a lot of fights is the fighters don't take chances. Once they are in the " lock out" position they just have each other at arms length, and it turns into a stalemate. At least Cote took a shot at getting in better position. Win Shelley

Posted by KD315 on October 19, 2008 at 08:24 AM

cote good ,shelley better!

Posted by Brashearfan on October 20, 2008 at 09:08 AM

Shelley gets the edge here. I guess Shelley's embarrassment from last season made sure he didn't take Cote lightly this time. Cote will go with anybody regardless of the results. You win some, you lose some.

Posted by Riomouse911 on October 19, 2008 at 11:15 PM

JS with the win... too bad the shirt came over Cote's head, or they might have gone a bit more..GAWD I HATE the RBK piece of crap jerseys.. what are they made of, spandex?

Posted by Screaming Buffalo on October 19, 2008 at 11:50 PM

Cote is not the best, but he might be the most exciting fighter in the league. Shelley gets the win, but I love watching any Cote fight because it's all punching with very little defense.

Posted by Spanky_Jazz on October 19, 2008 at 08:25 AM

Good fight. Edge to Shelley.

Posted by Lucy Brown on October 19, 2008 at 09:59 AM

1st let me say the Cote gets credit for always putting on a good show. Always stands toe to toe, none of this ducking dance that most so called fighters do these days. Having said that, Cote is just short of a punching bag. He has won maybe 2 or 3 fights tops since he's been in the league. To bad his fight with Orr was over before it started last week. I cant wait to see Orr destroy Cote again.

Posted by chl37 on October 20, 2008 at 04:33 PM

cote won't be hungry for a week after all the rights he just ate. nonethless another entertaining fight from cote. experience over toughness in this one. not to say that shelly isnt tough though.

Posted by BattleAxe13 on October 19, 2008 at 09:39 AM

Good fight but Shelley owned Riley, not a domination but this fight wasn't close either.

Posted by Killah_punk on October 19, 2008 at 01:13 PM

Cote puts on another good show, Edge to Shelley thou.

Posted by Juha82 on October 19, 2008 at 12:23 PM

Shelley with the edge.

Posted by DetroitIan on October 19, 2008 at 10:13 PM

Great fight. But Shelley landed about 5 more shots than Cote. Shelley gets the win here.

Posted by SOCALFAN on October 19, 2008 at 07:43 PM

not even a question.

Posted by BooSanta on October 19, 2008 at 07:12 PM

Cote had it early with the lefts after a good clean hit instigated it. But like everyone of Cote's opponents, Shelly is bigger stronger and has the reach. If you get in a slugfest with Cote you can land the bigger punches that eventually wears him out. Jody shelled him as the fight went on and got the jersey over Rockem Sockem's head to end with the spoils.

Posted by deanwormer on October 19, 2008 at 11:45 AM

Fairly easy win for Shelley.. never been impressed with Shelley though but he's fought pretty well this year thus far. FLYBOY88, I guess you missed the uppercut by the "Stache" that knocked Cote on his ass earlier this year?

Posted by staceyb on October 19, 2008 at 06:04 AM

Shelley wins on points. Cote is winless thus far in the fight department and his team is winless in the standings.

Posted by tonydomi1 on October 19, 2008 at 01:35 PM

Great scrap! You always get your money's worth with Cote. Win for Shelley with the bigger bombs landed.

Posted by BROWN - KOCUR on October 20, 2008 at 05:29 PM

Another great scrap from Cote. He really needs to work on getting better grip and position on his opponent during a fight. He either gets his own arms tied up or doesn't tie up his opponents sledgehammer and eats more punches. He'll be alright, just needs more work.

Posted by Ajax11 on October 19, 2008 at 01:58 AM

Great fight, Shelley gets the win

Posted by retrolust on October 20, 2008 at 09:11 AM

shelley the clear winner here and cote sure does know how to take one in the mush, i will give him one thing, he sure is a willing combatant

Posted by blues10 on October 20, 2008 at 11:24 AM

Hey scottso what fight were you watching?? Shelley beat the crao out of Cote.

Another awesome fight for Cote win or lose i love the way this guy fights. Shelley got the better of him here but again great fight.

Nice fight both guys just going at it. Shelley with the better shots and the win.

wow all the cote homers are hilaious, another loss for cote whats new

Posted by tyrone on October 19, 2008 at 11:50 PM

Take note BGL and wussy Brashear. This is how a fight is suppose to be. Reminds me of the fights from the late 80's. Shelley with the nod, but Cote needs to be noted as the most energetic fighter. He is about the size of Poo Poo and I wish he would just cave that little wuss's face in. i wish MN had a energetic fighter like Riley Coyote.

Posted by merle johnson on October 20, 2008 at 03:46 PM

Edge Shelley,,I dont care if people hate the flyers ,you gotta give this kid his props.He stands toe to toe with everyone he goes against.And he goes against all comers, every night.He is the most exciting fighter in the league.At 6 ft 1& 210 lbs he is hardly a heavyweight, .Who cares if he wins or loses.Just keep bringin it Cote,You are BadAss!!!!

Posted by BuffSabs76 on October 19, 2008 at 01:39 AM

Great fight. Cote puts on another show with one of the top heavyweights in Shelley. Have to give the edge to Shellster for the late blows and strong finish.

Posted by blackgoldfan on October 19, 2008 at 11:42 AM

well well well. Heavy weight main event. Fight of the nite! Shelly with a hard fought "W". Cote gives up a lot of size fighting the heavys but always makes a great fight.

Posted by wannago on October 19, 2008 at 10:23 PM

Cootie is again a punching bag. Shelley with a decisive hammering of this puckbag.

Cote started off strong but Shelley finished him off good. Shelley win.

Great fight...Shelley won...was kind of a close fight but shelley kicked ass

Posted by tkoiceman102 on October 19, 2008 at 12:01 PM

idk why everyone put shelly as a winner he fell twice and cote was killing him in the beginning and never fell. This was a good fight tho.

Posted by Flyersfan4life2 on October 19, 2008 at 09:28 AM

I dont understand how the voting is so lopsided. Shelley didnt dominate this fight at all. Are people saying he finished strong? Yea he threw more punches at the end but none of them landed. Then cotes jersey came up over his head. IF anything, this fight was a draw.

Posted by sickagain on October 19, 2008 at 08:35 AM

Maybe someday the pussies with the white tape on the bridge of their glasses will give the edge to Cote. He gives up 2-3" and 20-30 lbs. every fight. Ninty-five percent of the other fights (?) are snoozefests. I have a gate in my back yard that swings better than most of these enforcers.

Posted by Spaz on October 19, 2008 at 10:46 AM

both guys landed some...both guys took some...they just throw 'em....isn't that a draw? It is at least not 80% for Shelley. The west coast voters must have an early jump on this one.

Posted by nofx8881 on October 19, 2008 at 03:30 PM

I don't know which fight 73% percent of you people were watching, but it must have been a very different fight than the one I saw. This was a draw if ever I've seen one.

Posted by CFG1787 on October 19, 2008 at 01:37 AM

Win Shelley

Posted by pvdrummer2000 on March 05, 2015 at 02:41 AM

Shelley gets revenge for their last bout... this time he shows no code punching when the jersey was over Cote's head... good for Jody

Posted by thepolishkid88 on October 19, 2008 at 02:52 PM

Edge to Shelley. Very good job by Cote again, the guy is fearless and i love that.

Posted by bigdog2007 on October 21, 2008 at 04:28 PM

Another fight, another loss for Miley Cote. Why does he bother? Owned by Shelley. Flygirl88 is a homer with a man crush on a clown who cant win. I love the Flyer fans who whine about a 210 pound guy not being a heavyweight when he gets filled in. (Johnathon, Nilan, Domi anyone?)They call draw every time he takes a beating. Worst homer fans.

Posted by chad420 on July 24, 2009 at 10:23 PM

shelly landin more & harder ...real good fight...cote early with the quick jump...then jody get position n lets em rip..win shelly...a good 8

Posted by barnibizer on October 19, 2008 at 06:04 AM

Great fight. Shelley makes BGL look like a fag. Cote gets a few in early, but shelley comes on strong thereafter. Cote reminds we a little of Fedoruk in his early days, keeps throwing. Am worried Cote is a few fights away from a knockout loss.

Posted by CocoQuaker7 on October 19, 2008 at 12:17 PM

Shelley wins this fight with the harder punches thrown. Cote landed quite a few, but they were short and didn't have much effect.

Posted by Rynryn on October 20, 2008 at 12:44 PM

shelley with a win in a nice active fight! more of these, please.

Posted by TBLightningGuru on October 21, 2008 at 08:30 PM

You never see Cote in one of those hugfests like Brashear is famous for. Guy is a scrapper even though he did lose this one. Cote is exciting to watch. and very willing aswell

Posted by bam932 on October 20, 2008 at 09:21 PM

Shelly with the harder blows gets the win - gotta love they way these guys throw 'em

Posted by Let-m-Go on October 20, 2008 at 03:49 PM

Nobody has a bigger heart or B*lls then Cote unfortunatly there are a few guys with bigger punches and Shelly is one of them. Edge to Shelly for harder punches but Cote puts on another great show

Posted by brawler03 on October 19, 2008 at 06:37 PM

Cote is an exciting fighter to watch and this was a good scrap. Shelley is a monster, though and gets the victory.
