I've never commented on a fight in over 8 years, just filled my vote and moved on. This fight is so pathetic and looks so bad for simmonds it's forcing me to talk. Gutless cowardly brad marchand / pk suban style act from him. Erskine would murder him. Back to 8 years of silence.

Posted by The Doggfather on March 05, 2014 at 09:39 PM

There were literally 3 Flyers climbing in Erskine before this fight-- what a bunch of homers.. Erskine bloodied Vinny the Guinnea. Simmonds would have enjoyed a fistful had he found a pair and danced w Erskine

Posted by BAAAAANNERMAAAN on March 06, 2014 at 08:31 AM

A lot of dudes would turtle up against Erskine. Good for Vinny.

Posted by jwc3 on March 06, 2014 at 05:40 AM

Who ever voted for Vinny is an idiot, Simmons is a little bitch. Not a fan of either team.

Posted by bigmike53 on March 05, 2014 at 09:57 PM

If Lecavalier can fight so great why does he need Simmonds help with the tag team on Erskine! Simmonds was quiet when he was face to face with Erskine but when he gets behind him he's a superhero. Simmonds should have been tossed for 3rd man in and instead he gets a double minor. Win for John Erskine.

Posted by BruinsAllDaySon on March 05, 2014 at 09:29 PM

Lecavalier had no intentions of going with Erskine but all of a sudden realized he was in a jersey grab with him and Erskine was going to throw no matter what so he threw em off and gave it his best shot - I like it

Posted by pch49 on March 06, 2014 at 12:15 PM

With Schenn (?) and Simmonds on his back, Big John beats up Vinny.....

Posted by IMPEACH on March 06, 2014 at 11:36 AM

Come on people, if Erskine went after Bergeron or Malkin or Callahan you'd all be saying how great a team-mate Simmonds is for jumping in (which is what the gutless Caps didn't do when Emery tuned up their goalie, who's never been the same, by-the-way). McGuire is, as Behn says, not to be believed about anything. Lecavalier cares, but he's no match for Erskine. Where's the supposed code? Why is an experienced knuckler like Erskine going after a potential Hall-of-Famer like Vinnie? Everyone here loves fighting but hates the Flyers. Doesn't make sense.

Posted by Behn Wilson on March 05, 2014 at 10:11 PM

Simmonds stirs the pot but it's Lecavalier that ends up being in the wrong place at the wrong time as Erskine attempts to dole out some indiscriminate justice Despite McGuire's (usual) over-exaggerations vis a vis "Vinnie's fighting prowess"... Things did take a decided turn in his favour once he realized that when fighting the likes of Erskine... it's always best to bring a friend That being said... (my Tony Maranaro self-contradiction homage) BruinsAllDaySon makes the right point

Posted by bigdog2007 on March 05, 2014 at 09:26 PM

Simmons vagina was showing when Erskine stepped in. Vinny did well.

Posted by CantSkate on March 06, 2014 at 01:28 AM

At the 54 second mark you see 3 guys on Erskine, yet he still won. How the hell did Simmonds not get tossed.

Posted by Sasky001 on March 06, 2014 at 08:37 PM

Erskine is one of my favourites, but when goons go after real players they deserve everything they get. Props to Lecavalier.

Posted by clarkpk1 on March 05, 2014 at 11:19 PM

Lecavalier doesn't land a punch until Simmons is holding Erskine back. It's 2 on one and Lecavalier is the one who leaves bloodied. Would have loved to see Erskine get a fair shot at teaching the Flyers the proper way to fight.

Posted by Leejayd on March 05, 2014 at 09:02 PM

From a guy who likes both teams, Simmons is a fucking idiot. He backed away from a fight with Erskin then goes after him mid fight? Not to mention the 3 guys jumping Erskin before the fight. I respect Phili for being a tough team that likes to fight, but have a little tact about the whole thing.

Posted by Hands of Stone on March 07, 2014 at 01:27 PM

Erskine deserves 3 WINS for this "king of the ice" battle.

Posted by jitu patel on March 06, 2014 at 06:54 PM

Loser Vinny cannot fight without help from teammate. Only when his teammate grabs John's neck, then he can connect. Otherwise, Vinny would have serious lost the fight and beaten badly.

Posted by staceyb on March 05, 2014 at 09:07 PM

Erskine wanted to go with Simmonds but he took on Vinny Lecavalier instead. Vinny got him with the best shot as Erskine was being pulled down by Simmonds. The Caps looked like they were playing totally lost in that first period and now they've lost their two heavyweights to game misconducts. Not smart hockey at all.

Posted by rocky 1 on March 07, 2014 at 01:40 AM

Erskine was killing Lecavalier when two other flyers hand on to Erskine so Lecalvalier can throw a free one on Erskine.Is this how the flyers do it?Dirty,dirty, dirty!

Posted by shootthepuck on March 10, 2014 at 06:05 PM

Flyers tactics from the 70's..Although in this case you have a heavyweight against a goal scorer (or former goal scorer) so the third man in is understandable from Simmonds perspective. I can think of at least one other team in the Caps division that could really use Erksine...

Posted by Spinner55 on March 06, 2014 at 05:45 PM

Boycott Mini Baby Bel cheese...%&^$#% commercials.

Posted by hizzy4shizzy on March 06, 2014 at 09:24 PM

Agree with IMPEACH, everyone applauded Clarkson for coming off the bench to pull Scott off of Kessel.

Posted by nhlofficialsblo on March 06, 2014 at 09:20 AM

No way Lecavalier survives a one on one with Erskine if Richard the gang banger Simmonds doesn't pull his typical garbage. I'm glad I'm not forced to be a Criers fan geographically. Any player donning the stupid halloween colors becomes instant trash. Watch Simmonds trying to get head from Stoa. What a gang banging scumbag he is.

Posted by harpdog on March 06, 2014 at 02:22 PM

simmonds should have gotten third man penalty causing Eskine to get hit

Posted by Orr Fourever on March 06, 2014 at 10:55 AM

Draw Old Time Hockey....... Good to see the Caps with some push back.

Posted by cami19 on March 08, 2014 at 10:42 PM

Simmonds doesn't come off this looking great. Had the chance to go with Erskine at the very start and didn't look interested 1 bit. Well until Erskine had his back turned and was involved with someone else anyway & then gives a cheap cross check to the back followed by a jumping from behind. Doesn't make sense from a usually guy who is undoubtedly tough and usually pretty fair game from what I have seen. Think maybe my opinion of him isn't gonna be the same now!

Posted by b_eazzzy on January 29, 2017 at 05:53 PM

Fuck John erskine......all you fucking pansies out here calling Simmonds a bitch, can you not see he was trying to get his attention, Erskine was the puke picking his spot on lecavalier. After watching erskine get away with murder in the OHL, it was actually refreshing to watch a style he would use, used on him.

Posted by tpr1960 on March 06, 2014 at 05:42 PM

Erskine goes looking for a fight, because Rinaldo was steamrolling every Cap on the ice {Legally} then he fights a hockey player, and for his efforts gets tagged at the end big time ! Love it ! Caps roster is Wilson, Erskine, Volpatti and 15 pu$$ies ! hahahahahahaha luv all the Philly haters, thats why we're the best at it . Dont you dummies get that yet? Oh how bout that Luke Schenn ! hahahahahahahahaah OH Philly won...............Don't despair Cap fans {There is such a thing?}, Montreal is a bigger puss wad team than you !

Posted by chl37 on March 06, 2014 at 08:23 AM

Simmonds obviously wanted no part of erksine. then so bravely grabs his erkinse from behind while he is pummeling Vincent. who do you think you're fooling Simmonds? it was your fault vince get pounded in the first place.

Posted by boldbilly on March 06, 2014 at 02:13 PM

the unbelievable hypocrisy and stupidity of some of the posts here.....In what universe does Vinny have to fight Erskine.....shame on Erskine !!!!! If you're mad at Simmonds ...fight him ....or there is always next shift to get even.........WHY IS LUCIC TOO VALUABLE TO FIGHT THE FIGHTERS .....BUT WE EXPECT LECAVALLIER TO MAN UP??????? Simmonds was just trying to save Vinny's life......he should have gotten a 3rd man in call BUT THATS IT.... I am sorry people Simmonds is no coward and fights is also not his job to fight Erskine.!!!!!! When John Scott tried to beat up Kessel everyone was is Erskine here any different for going after Vinny........What a joke

Posted by pepsigenerate on March 06, 2014 at 11:20 PM

Erskine gets ragged dolled around.Lecavalier buckles erskine to down to the ice.Winner Lacavalier.Simmonds would have outboxed Erskine.

Posted by Luvdafights on March 06, 2014 at 03:24 PM

Lecavalier gets take down on Erskine thanks to Simmons.

Posted by Lupac on March 06, 2014 at 12:20 AM

Vinny is the man for stepping up, simmonds is no bitch either he just didn't think he would have to fight the goon until he attacked Vinny But by then it was too late. Not to mention he's lucky Berube is a poopy head for not starting Rosehill who would give erskine a good fight, last but not least, I have a big penis. Good day gentleman.

Posted by Gustis on March 07, 2014 at 09:55 AM

I have no clue why everyone is going after Simmonds, he's a great fighter and in one quick instant suddenly everyone is all "Simmonds is a coward!!".. Simmonds DID NOT deny the fight with Erskine, because Erskine wanted Lecavalier the ENTIRE time (a simple post game interview would have cleared that up), and Simmonds, knowing Lecavalier isn't really a fighter is trying to protect his teammates (you know, what good fighters usually are good fighters for). In fact he charges through 3 Capitals as if they were pillows and gets to Erskine. To be honest with you, Lecavalier landed the best punch of this fight. I can't make sense of these "Erskine would have destroyed him" comments because Erskine misses about 90% of his punches ALL THE TIME and is still one of the sloppiest fighters I've ever seen. He had plenty of fair chances to off Lecavalier and didn't, and in fact was caught by 2 hard punches from Vinny, so you can put those comments to rest too. Even though there were plenty of people grabbing at each other (Which is what happens in BRAWLS) how come Simmonds is the only one being attacked by you guys even though he's simply trying to protect his teammate? Say what you really want to say...

Posted by dfedrics on March 06, 2014 at 11:46 AM

Confirms my dislike of simmonds

Posted by SEMO_Yogi on March 07, 2014 at 07:11 PM

Erskine win! Lecavalier and Simmonds are both female sex organs. I only wish that Simmonds had the orbs to go with Erskine.,,clearly he's man enough for that though.

Posted by kyhammer on March 06, 2014 at 07:27 PM

Erskine wins here. Simmonds is a several time proven bitch. Flyers are punks.

Posted by gogrg on March 14, 2014 at 08:16 AM

Theres no such thing as a fair fight but come on holding a guys arm back? Erskine KO'd Orr earlier this season, imagine what he would have done to Simmonds, or Vinny if he didnt get held back

Posted by mahogoney10 on March 06, 2014 at 06:31 PM

How did Simmons not get third-man in this donnybrook. He ruined what was a good old fashioned beatdown by Erskine.

Posted by rjbrenn3 on March 06, 2014 at 12:34 PM

Can't believe the stuff that comes out of Flyers fans' mouths. Erskine instigated? If anything, the whole brawl started when Wilson wanted to drop with Schenn. A lot of people are also saying Erskine went after Vinnie... No, he went after Simmonds when he gave Stoa a cheap shot while on the ice. After Simmonds skated away, 3 Flyers attacked Erskine, and him and Vinnie just happened to pair off. Are you guys watching the fights?

Posted by LiamG138 on March 06, 2014 at 03:50 PM

Wayne simmons deserves a third man in. Erskin could have knocked out lecavalier if he wasn't getting grabbed from behind. Just before this three flyers jumped on Erskin. I don't understand how a team can have every player be a dirty jerk.

Posted by ghjkfdhgfd on March 06, 2014 at 12:08 AM

That was fun! Big John won that, but Vinny tagged him.

Posted by Mikemaster11 on March 06, 2014 at 12:57 PM

Great line brawl

Posted by doobi1 on March 06, 2014 at 08:35 PM

Erskine pounded the crap out of Vinnie on this night. Sneaky Pete who stuck his hand in at the end should have his ass hammered for being the turd man in.

Posted by BillyFromPhilly on March 07, 2014 at 04:01 PM

Wait a second, I can't vote for Wayne Simmonds in this fight? Erskine is a douche for even throwing with Lecavalier. First, he is not a fighter unlike Erskine. Erskine's last four fights...Lecavalier, Orr, Parros and S. Thornton. One of these things is not like the other.... Secondly his last name is Lecavalier which clearly translates to goal scorer not fighter in french canadian (canadien, sorry). Simmonds shows how a true teamate stands up for his mate. Great work.

Posted by tiburon4 on March 06, 2014 at 02:22 PM

Much better than the other "tussle" to vote on, but I'm glad there was a lot of action among all the players on the ice. Regarding this separate fight, it looked like Erskine was winning but LeCavalier gets the slight edge with the last punch.

Posted by pvdrummer2000 on March 06, 2014 at 09:51 PM

Erskine was handling Vinny pretty well until Simmonds grabbed him.

Posted by chad420 on March 06, 2014 at 11:14 AM

As expected,allday HeresJohnny!....nice linebrawl....gotta love it

Posted by cribbdeath on March 06, 2014 at 06:50 PM

I didn't see Simmonds as a fight winner option? Oh yeah, he was the third man in. Or was Lecavalier, or maybe Brayden Schenn? I couldn't tell which of the three started fighting first. One thing is obvious, the Flyers thought it would take all 3 of the players. Way to be classless Philly, at least you are consistent.

Posted by Mounty in NC on March 09, 2014 at 11:23 AM

IMPEACH....nobody likes the Flyers because of all their bullshit and cheap shots. 3 on 1 really???? Simmonds started the whole thing by being a bitch and slapping the Caps player. Erskine went after Simmonds first but Simmonds kept backing away like he was a scared little bitch. Lecavalier stepped in and up to the plate and got handed an ass whoopin. Notice how Simmonds didn't mind jumping in then, from behind. Simmonds should have received a third man in and gone for the game. Lecavalaier had his own bitch move by throwing a punch when it's obvious you could see Erskine was being held by Simmonds. Both Simmonds and Lec should have gotten game misconducts!!!

Posted by CrackMan on March 06, 2014 at 08:57 AM

Lecavalier showed heart, but he didn't win this bout - certainly not single-handedly.

Posted by CG3 on March 08, 2014 at 01:06 PM

The only punch Lecavalier landed was when Simmonds was pulling Erskine down, Simmonds should've been tossed for third man in

Posted by Biggus on March 05, 2014 at 11:16 PM

Big grin while writing this. Barroom blitz! Lecavalier gets mixed up with Erskine and finds out that big John can make it hurt even when he gets mostly helmet. I like that last poke after Simmonds had a hold of Erskine.

Posted by Amerkfan8 on March 07, 2014 at 11:20 PM

So Erskine gets tackled by 3 Flyers and the has 1 Flyer hold him in a headlock while another punches him in the face. Despite that, he still manages to throw the best punches in this fight. He dominates pre-Simmons. How the Hell does Simmons not get tossed here?

Posted by King of Goons on March 05, 2014 at 11:39 PM

Strange fight. Erskine picks on Lecavalier, which in my book is kind of a cheap bully move, and then Vinny gives Erskine a real cheap shot when Erskine is tied up and distracted by the surrounding scrum. I almost felt bad for Lecavalier when this altercation began. It was funny to watch Simmonds and any other Flyer close to the action desperately try to get to the scene to save poor Vinny's life. Lecavalier might have been beaten into a coma if these two were not interrupted by all the traffic on the ice. This was an 8 (Erskine) fighting a 3 (Lecavlier). You won't see more of a mismatch then this ever. Vinny is lucky he didn't wind up in the hospital or lose his head. ...and Simmonds is a dick who needs a beating (Wait, that didn't sound right).

Posted by English_Bruin on March 06, 2014 at 12:11 PM

Schenn is a gutless piece of shi-ite, turtled then snuck a few in. Fair play to Simmonds tho for trying to help :o after chickening out of course.

Posted by omorales on March 06, 2014 at 11:13 PM

Erskine vs. the Flyers Forward line W Erskine...

Posted by billy jack on March 08, 2014 at 12:13 AM

simmonds saved vinny from a pounding,plain and simple.PS maguire makes vinny out to be a warrior,the guy is six four and he has 3 fights,hell little Gallagher probably has that and not the one from shameless.

Posted by BooSanta on March 22, 2014 at 05:46 PM

How on the Big Cheese's creation did the Wayne Train not get a third mug in on this is not to be believed. Lacav scores one of the filthiest "tkos" in the history of cheap shots, but will not get the win for all the blood on his jersey. Erskine, when not being piled on, gave a pretty game fighter/scorer in Lacavalier the business. Guess Lacav appreciates his teammates here. These 2 teams made for a great rivalry this year. You can only hope they clash in the playoffs.

Posted by bdpetroni on March 07, 2014 at 12:12 AM

From what I've seen of Simmonds in the past, I've always respected the way he plays and fights. That being said, this sequence is embarassing. If this isn't 3rd man in, I don't know what is. And Erskine takes a huge shot from Lecavalier because of it. Next time these teams play, Simmonds may have several dance partners, including Erskine.

Posted by dropem99 on March 06, 2014 at 01:46 PM

Erskine picks his spots here, takes on non fighter Vincent Lecavalier and gets a win. Erskine gets popped while being held.

Posted by Kaderson on March 06, 2014 at 10:37 AM

Simonds is a coward. Big John would have dismantled Simonds. It would have been just a beating. Erskin has fought the likes of Lucic. Simonds should be suspended. Joke.

Posted by dingdingding on March 06, 2014 at 05:47 PM

Big John just wanted to make sure the dental work Vinny received courtesy of steve olesky was up to par

Posted by orangecuse on March 06, 2014 at 09:46 AM

The only punch Vinny landed was when Simmonds grabbed Erskine what a bunch of cheap shot players the Fly Girls are.

despite the announcers this was ERSKINE all night .a late cheap did not change the result

Posted by Gillesthebeast on March 19, 2014 at 11:25 AM

Typical Flyer clowns...Lecavalier doesn't have the guts to go 1 on 1 and needs 2 other Flygirls to help him with Erskine..Simmonds wanted no part of Erskine when they nwere 1 on 1 but as soon as Erskine is engaged with Lecavalier he jumps in...the refs were a joke not throwing Simmonds trhe scared little girl out of the game

Posted by honest truth on March 06, 2014 at 09:20 AM

It's not a KD or a TKO or a KO or even a win when you get help from someone else. Big, bad Richard Simmonds should have tossed and wanted none of Erskine.

Posted by bg3152 on March 06, 2014 at 08:43 AM

Simmonds is a punk, wouldn't go with Erskine then grabs him while he's fighting Vinny - and doesn't get 3rd man in??? Vinny held up well but John wins the fight, that last punch doesn't land if Suzy Simmonds isn't grabbing Erskine.

Posted by downtownwc on March 06, 2014 at 12:02 PM

Lecavalier is lucky Simmonds came to his rescue. Big John handles business as usual.

Posted by TheodoreRex on December 31, 2017 at 03:23 AM

erskine is the beast fight 3 flyers at once haha.lecavalier was unlucky and lucky at the same time.he was unlucky cos out of them 3 flyers it was him who ended fighting erskine man-to-man eventually and he was lucky cos he didnt get destroyed by erskine.erskine took it easy on him.probably out of respect. good job by simmonds coming to help to his teammate while being paired up with another man

Posted by mpagano22 on March 06, 2014 at 06:32 AM

It's hard to have a fair fight when there's another flyer attached to your jersey. Still dont understand how Simmons did not get third man in

Posted by srehm1 on March 05, 2014 at 09:14 PM

Erskine was getting the upper hand on Vinny when Simmonds came in from behind. Then Erskine gets pulled down as Vinny lands a right. Erskine with the win.

Posted by petiepab1 on March 06, 2014 at 05:41 PM

Erskine did not seek out VLC for the fight, Erskine got jumped by 3 dudes at once, one of whom was VLC, and Erskine got up and grabbed the first Flyer that he most people would...unfortunately for VLC, it was him. Simmonds should've gotten 3rd in, but Erskine would've gone with any of those girls on the ice.

Posted by anthonyman on March 06, 2014 at 01:59 PM

Simmonds did what he had to do. He is a proven fighter that would welcome a scrap with Erskine. Haters gonna hate and if any of you keyboard jockstraps played the game you might value a line mate that would have your back like Wayne did. #waynetrain #simmerdown #youmadbro #iceup

Vinny with the TKO.

Posted by sedinfan on March 05, 2014 at 09:52 PM

When i saw this match up, i was expecting a disaster, but Vinny survives with a little help from Simmonds hanging on to Erskine and lands a heavy punch at the end.

Posted by Ovdaman on March 06, 2014 at 10:03 AM

The flyer are a disgrace. 3 going after Erskine at once is BS. Simmons should have been tossed. Pierre Mcquire is a troll talking about how tough Vinny is. The only punch(cheap shot) was when Erskine was held. Typical

Posted by Great Murray on March 06, 2014 at 01:01 PM

A superstar that will throw down...awesome. LeCavalier rescues Simmonds from a train wreck. LeCavalier holds his own with a very tough guy and lands the better punches. He had Erskine leaking...he wins. Simmonds should have got gamed as third man...lame move by him. He backs down from Erskine and then tries to jump in after Erskine is at it with Vinnie!

Posted by bobowen34 on March 05, 2014 at 08:51 PM

Simmonds should have been called for third man in. Erskine with the win.

Posted by pwb94 on March 07, 2014 at 10:08 AM

Lecavalier wanted to go but his girlfriend Simmonds wouldn't let him.. draw because of interference but much more Erskine then Vinny...

Posted by TERMINATOR on March 06, 2014 at 10:34 AM

Looked like a pretty even affair to me, Erskine's problems with Simmonds notwithstanding.

Posted by 6Dupont on March 06, 2014 at 09:29 AM

Wonder if the Crapitals' young punks (like Oleksy) or old farts (like Erskine) will ever have the stones to go with someone besides Lecavalier? Maybe they need to bring back Lou Franceschetti.

Erskine? Are you people retarded? DRAW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Posted by samtheman on March 05, 2014 at 09:51 PM

Erskine thought he'd have an easy time with a non-fighter and end up getting his ass KO'd. He got some help from Simmonds but so what.

Posted by Boston Garden on March 05, 2014 at 11:45 PM

Spot-picker Simmonds sh*t his pants when face to face with Erskine, he just won't fight him going back to last year. So in typical cowardly Flyer fashion jumps Erskine from behind.

Posted by Raoul Duke 708 on March 06, 2014 at 02:03 AM

Vinny must have been awfully surprised when he dropped Erskine. Similarly, he must have been mildly dejected when he saw the replay and realized he only got a shot in because Simmonds was pawing at his dance partner... Screw it. Win Vinny. (Erskine has no business going after actual hockey players like Lecavalier to begin with)

Posted by kkdowning on March 06, 2014 at 08:51 AM

Stay Classy, Philadelphia. Three guys jump Big John Erskine and he still roughs up Vinny LeCav, Simmonds should have been kicked from the game for 3rd man in -- actually 3rd man twice. Vinny's only shot was a cheap shot. If I am Erskine and watch this video, I take my "partner" 19 year old Connor Carrick and give him a fatherly talking to.

Posted by BehnWilson3 on March 05, 2014 at 09:06 PM

Win Erskine

Posted by sjeffh on March 06, 2014 at 04:51 AM

Not sure it was a fair fight. Regardless, it was Lecavalier that got in the best single shot. It looked to me like Simmons was going with Erskine at one point and once Erskine was beat, he got up and went after Lecavalier for some reason while Simmons was still on his tail. Erskine's a tough guy but he'd do better to fight one person at a time.

Posted by mikebflorida on March 06, 2014 at 09:27 AM

Its amazing how people come up with some of the comments they do. This was a BRAWL dumbasses, things happen in a brawl, pushing, shoving, grabbing, slashing, spearing, gouging and it's all happening spur and heat of the moment. Erskibne instigated this from the get go, he was going to fight someone, anyone and is one of the baddest dudes in the league. Did you all know that or are you just ignorant haters and racists? Wayne Simmonds does not need to fight Erskine you morons. So Big John goes after someone else, he totally instigated the whole thing and starts firing punches at Vinny who can take care of himself but is NOT a fighter at all and yet floors Erskine with a booming right aided by players grabbing Erskine. Wouldn't you step in if your $5 million a year center was being bullied by an enforcer? That's what good teammates do you dopes. And yet most votes are for Erskine who got laid out and didn't land a single clean punch except to Vinny's helmet. Haters gonna hate but the Flyers stood tall, stood together, and won the fights and the game. I guess that's gotta burn some of you dicks. I don't even know if it's worth reviewing fights anymore, it's not about the results of the fights but what jersey is being worn. Win Vinny.

Posted by Bigswami on March 05, 2014 at 10:15 PM

Simmons would destroy Erskine that's why he wanted to throw with Vinny. Erskine really laid it on him glad Simmons was there
