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.
Draw! I cant stand shelley but I still notice a good bout and that my friends was a good bout!
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.
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.
just your average hockey fight!!
good fight. -cote was wiping him at first-shelly came back at the end but not enough for a win
Draw,,looking forward to the rematch that will take place Weds. night !
Cote is a tomato can....a real crowd pleaser by being a punching bag.
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.
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.
Both guys landed some solid punches. Entertaining scrap. Draw
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!!!!!
Cote is becoming this generations version of Stan Jonathan, wins some, loses some but will give as good as he gets.
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!
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.
Cote held his own. Slight Slight SLIGHT edge to Shelley
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.
Great fight. gonna call that a draw
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
Good scrap one of shellys better bouts against a young upcoming tough guy
nice to see a flyer get waxed for a dirty hit.they must practice that.
Cote got what he derserved for taking a run at Boyle
Shelley with the win, Did cement head Cote ever win a fight?
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 was outhit by Shelley.....
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.
All Shelley. Too much size and experience for Cote to handle as it is in alot of his fights.
like somone said earlier... everytime cote fights... the crowd wins! :-) this guy is pure hockey fight entertainment!
GEEZ! Isn't Riley going to win a fight this year? Shelly wins this one.
Shelley's always entertaining. Could have been better though, it ended too soon.
Cote is 0-2-1 on the year.
SHELLEY DOES'NT GET A LOT OF W'S IN THE SUPER HEAVY WEIGHT DIVISION,BUT HE EARNED A DECISION IN THIS ONE WITH A DECISION OVER THE TOUGH COTE GOOD T2T BOUT!
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.
He may not win all of his fights, but Cote is the funnest to watch. Hardley a dull fight with him.
Cote stood toe to toe, but I give the edge to Shelley as he looked much more sharp in this bout.
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.
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.
Shelley definitely lands more, but Cote never quits. Good fight.
Good scrap Though this one appears to be closer than it is, Shelley lands more facial blows. Shelley with the win.
Shelly Dominates this fight from the beginning. At least Cote tried. Shelley hands down.
good scrap. both landed some, Shelley landed more. Cote's a tough kid.
ok fight shelly wins but boogaard will kill him
This was barely a win by shelley
Shelley was better....not much separated these two......if Cote was 6'4" instead of 6'1"....
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
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.
Good fight, Shelley all the way.
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.
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!!!
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
Shelley landed more quality punches in this fight! i think he proved his point.
Normally I hate Jody´s way to fight, now I was amazed, W JS
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
cote good ,shelley better!
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.
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?
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.
Good fight. Edge to Shelley.
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.
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.
Good fight but Shelley owned Riley, not a domination but this fight wasn't close either.
Cote puts on another good show, Edge to Shelley thou.
Shelley with the edge.
Great fight. But Shelley landed about 5 more shots than Cote. Shelley gets the win here.
not even a question.
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.
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?
Shelley wins on points. Cote is winless thus far in the fight department and his team is winless in the standings.
Great scrap! You always get your money's worth with Cote. Win for Shelley with the bigger bombs landed.
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.
Great fight, Shelley gets the win
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
Hey scottso what fight were you watching?? Shelley beat the crao out of Cote.
shelley is a good scrapper!
Makes me miss Jody even more. Win, Shelley.
Clear win for Shelley....
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
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.
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!!!!
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.
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.
Cootie is again a punching bag. Shelley with a decisive hammering of this puckbag.
The Shelley of old!
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
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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
Edge to Shelley. Very good job by Cote again, the guy is fearless and i love that.
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.
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
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.
Shelley wins this fight with the harder punches thrown. Cote landed quite a few, but they were short and didn't have much effect.
shelley with a win in a nice active fight! more of these, please.
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
Shelly with the harder blows gets the win - gotta love they way these guys throw 'em
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
Cote is an exciting fighter to watch and this was a good scrap. Shelley is a monster, though and gets the victory.
