you can't have it both ways. most of the posters in this thread have a grasp of reality. the calls for those two to stick up for thornton were probably aimed at the ones who don't.
I don't think Chara needs to stick up for Thornton, but I think it would have been a good idea for Chara to say "I got this one" like he's done in the past with BGL and Brashear.
Because, let's face it, Thornton can't fight everyone and win every time. Scott was just too big and got a quick upper hand. In all honesty, if they fight 100 times, I truly believe Thornton wins more than he loses.
I think as a leader,Chara should have taken on Scott. I'm betting that on Monday or Sunday when they play, Thornton goes again with Scott and wins.
With a better strategy this time...Lol.
