DRAW. nothing going on here.

Posted by drjones on March 26, 2009 at 12:32 AM

mcb as usual is wrong. nothing will become of the Flyers as they will LOSE in the playoffs.

Posted by scwildcat on March 24, 2009 at 10:20 PM

This was more of a draw, yeah Rupp threw more punches but basically he gave Cote sleeve burns on his nose. never really connected to anything but Cote's helment. And yes i think it is bad for Cote to go after Rupp after he is down

Posted by crosscheck52 on March 24, 2009 at 06:53 AM

Rupp seemed to have an edge in punches that landed, but he did little to control the action. Cote fought well enough to deserve the draw.

Posted by Bear72 on March 25, 2009 at 06:42 AM

Good scrap edge to Rupp. Cote got a good one in early and then it was all rupp till the takedown

Posted by Flyersfan4life2 on March 24, 2009 at 08:47 AM

Gave this one a draw. Wonder why cote was pissed at the end of the fight, because once cote got his arm free and starting landing shots, rupp turtles and goes down. When rupp was hitting cote, you didnt see cote turtle and go to the ground. Bannerman - What do you mean classless move by cote? He wanted rupp to get back up and take the licking he deserved. Instead, when cote got free, rupp went down. Cote didnt hit him when he was down at all. He just wanted to let rupp know he wanted more and rupp pussed out. On that note, i think Rupp is one of the most improved fighters this year along with Belak. Rupp has had some good showings this year.

Posted by creeperama on March 26, 2009 at 08:44 AM

It does actually look like Cote caught him about 18 seconds into the fight. Look close and one of those left catches Rupps chin, then he goes down like a sack of potatoes. I am a Flyers fan and voted for Rupp because it looked like to me he dominated. But take a look around the 18 sec mark.

Posted by staceyb on March 24, 2009 at 05:38 AM

Rupp got in more punches but Cote was just getting warmed up at the end. There was one telling left that Cote landed at the opening that must have rattled Rupp's grill. That was a fantastic game last night between the Flyers and Devils. Things were really mean out there and it's a wonder there wasn't about a dozen fights.

Rupp looked like he was trying to start a lawn mower which was Cote's face. Too bad Holik the chicken shit wouldn't go with Asham!!

Posted by holydrums on March 24, 2009 at 01:19 PM

wow can cote take a punch. win rupp

Posted by Behn Wilson on March 24, 2009 at 10:42 PM

Rupp did enough to win, although Cote seemed to sting a couple of times.

Posted by Riomouse911 on March 25, 2009 at 12:33 AM

Luckily Cote has a chin of granite as he goes for the face-first approach again. 10-9 Rupp. I think if it went 10 more seconds Cote would've pulled it out though, he looked more into it than Rupp did at the end...

Posted by SCOTTSO on March 24, 2009 at 08:16 AM

drab fight

Posted by paddyd on March 24, 2009 at 04:40 PM

Rupp with the "W". Come June you won't know the Racoon because he will not have any more black eyes till Sept.

Posted by Dovermv on March 24, 2009 at 06:55 AM

Is there a different fight that some people are watching? Cote won the fight? How do you win a fight these days? By beating up the other players with your face? Rupp with a easy win.

Posted by youthattack on March 24, 2009 at 04:55 PM

i love the flyers and cote, but maybe its time for the flyers to take a look at their "enforcer" situation. riley cote will drop the gloves with ANYONE and i respect him for that, but at the same time i can't keep seeing this guy get beat over and over again. does he honestly have a win this year? i've watched every flyers game and i don't remember him winning a single fight. with asham and carcillo in the lineup, maybe its time to trade cote or just put him with the phantoms.

Posted by bouch19 on March 24, 2009 at 04:42 AM

mcb your as retarded as the rest of you flyer fans who think cote keeps winning his bouts. If thats a win...the I am sure my 90 year old grandma could kick your ass anyday!

Posted by Jellyczar on March 26, 2009 at 08:03 AM

Cote acts mad real good....but can't fight worth a damn. Rupp wins

Posted by jealeman on April 04, 2009 at 02:46 AM

Goodness I hate Cotex...glad he ate fists in this one. Narrow win for Rupp...dry humping at the end won't earn you a win in my book...

Posted by Lucy Brown on March 25, 2009 at 08:55 PM

Cote is hilarious. He's got guts but thats about it. He just doesnt get tired of getting his ass beat. He has to be the most entertaining fighter to watch even though he loses just about every fight. Flyer fans should be embarrased. Wearing the black and orange used to mean something in that town.

Posted by brazos on March 24, 2009 at 03:47 PM

Cote seems to have lost his edge. Rupp started quicker and threw more punches, not sure how many landed but he was in charge in this one. Did the thumping Cote received by Brashear affect his fighting ?

Posted by BooSanta on March 25, 2009 at 12:58 PM

Rockem Sockem Riley lands that nasty left to Rupps chin to start. Afterwards Rup scored the victory on the flurry of rights to Rocked and Socked's helmet and head. Some might say Rupp turtled in the end but it looked like that big shnozz of his hit the ice when he slipped down. Cote looked P.O.ed tearing his jersey trying to get a few out of code shots in because he must have thought Rupp turtled. I tend to think Rupp slipped down as he is quite clumsy and perhaps shocked by his improvement over his subpar year. It seems that Cote is still going to have to get in close to win his fights. His Rockem sockem style is getting him in trouble too much. See his previous scrap with Ruppemup this year .

Posted by LINYRFAN on March 24, 2009 at 02:46 AM

It's official.....Flyer fans are just retarded! Rupp with the win over Orr's punching bag!

Posted by Tanqueray on March 24, 2009 at 02:05 AM

Rupp wins, but Cote is one tough mofo. Why was he pissed at the end? He ended it by dragging Rupp down.

Rupp won it. Call it anyway you want.

Posted by bnntbrwr on March 25, 2009 at 01:38 AM

Cote is punk and I'm glad that Rupp pounded him in the nose. But the fact is that Cote held his own. I give the nod to Rupp, but if they stay standing for another 5 to 10 seconds, we'd be crowning a different victor. That's for sure.

Posted by RichterNYR35 on March 24, 2009 at 08:45 AM

If Cote is not the definition of a dump truck, then IDK what is!!!

Posted by pepsigenerate on March 24, 2009 at 10:10 PM

rupp throws all the punches here and wins with ease in this bout.

Posted by daflyersman on March 24, 2009 at 10:53 AM

I thought most of Rupp's punches in that fight landed on Cote's helmet, but the fact that his were getting through while Cote was hitting Rupp on the shoulder says something to me. I've always said that if Cote had been a little taller (like 6'3" or 6'4") he would be a great fighter because he is so tough. But him being how he is, trying to fight the heavyweights who all have longer reaches than him is not a great idea. The Flyers need to acquire a real heavyweight next year who actually has size to use to his advantage.

Posted by SirYohans on March 24, 2009 at 12:39 PM

Win Rupp. I seriously don't understand why Cote keeps doing this. He used to at least throw some punches. Now he just takes punches and once the fights over, then acts like he wants more... More what? Still hungry to eat more punches. Are we to believe that Cote was just about to "let loose" and KO Rupp. That's what some of you would like to believe. It's all good, you can be a dreamer.

Posted by merle johnson on March 24, 2009 at 01:29 PM

win for Rupp.landed more and cleaner shots.Cote started off with 2 solid lefts,Then Rupp got the right goin...Rupp did turtle at the end,W.T.F was that all about????

Posted by timm0 on March 24, 2009 at 03:16 PM

Rupp with an easy win. Love Cote, but book must have been made on the guy because he can't even buy a win any more. He's a shadow of his previous effectiveness. With rare exceptions this year, he's just a punching bag for a Flyers opponent. I feel bad for him because he's a gamer, but he's got to be facing the end of his career at this point. Who wants an enforcer who has no tangible game skills and loses 4 out of 5 fights? And of those losses, half of them aren't really even close? Cote will get less ice time at this point of the season and see fewer fights - fewer chances to prove he deserves to stay in the NHL... just about time to write him off....

Posted by MetalMitts on March 25, 2009 at 12:40 PM

Clear win for Rupp. Like someone said already, I give Cote cudos for dropping 'em - he usually gets pounded, but is always entertaining. He'll stand his ground and try to trade. In this one he appeared to be a bit beaned up on something. My guess is that Rupp went down b/c his hand hurt and needed to end it. Nevertheless W for Rupp.

Posted by kylethrashers on March 25, 2009 at 12:20 AM

This is the best performance from Rupp since he dropped Coburn a few years ago. Winner Rupp, Cote can take a punch though.

Posted by bruiseyoureye on March 24, 2009 at 10:23 AM

michael rupp opened up the proverbial can of whoop ass on cote...........cote is just a punching bag for all the fighters in the leaugue......ive come to the conclusion that andre roy is the worst fighter this year and there is no one even being as close to as awful as a fighter than andre roy.....not even stortini.....but id have to say that cote is the second worst fighter this year..........but andre roy is by far the worst heavyweight of all time in the history of the nhl.....if youve ever seen riley cote up close his face looks like grated cheese from getting pounded on fight after fight.....enough is enough riley before you end up as a parapalegic..........easy win for rupp even as an average at best fighter in rupp......PFLY64 i totally agrre with you on the officiating the officiating sucks across the whole league and are ruining the whole nhl not just a few games...all of them.....and with the new pusy rules for fighting i probably wont even watch hockey next year........fuccccck gary bettman and fuccccccck the officiating and fucccccck the nhl.....they ruined the nhl.....congratulations gary bettman for ruining the nhl thanks alot diccckead

Another beat down to Cote. This guy really needs to stop being a human punching bag. The Flyers are a very soft team, that's for sure. Cote, your an embarrassment

Posted by niftyweave on March 24, 2009 at 05:29 AM

Notice that mcb always has the first entry to these reviews. That means he has absolutely no life or friends and still lives with his parents. I can just picture him sitting at his computer waiting until the fight gets posted so he can write the same stupid thing EVERY time. Get a life man, go get laid, go do SOMETHING else for a change. It's really kind of sad that this little website is your life.

Posted by ETR on March 25, 2009 at 03:56 PM

Another in the L column for Cote.....

Posted by PFLY64 on March 24, 2009 at 07:25 AM

Cote lost, of greater concern is the continuing officiating that ruins the game of hockey, not just the Flyers but league wide the officials are awful and versus is just as bad, does versus choose not to replay most penalties or is it an order from Buttman. Carcillo 4min. high stick rule 60.1 follow through, the biggest problem in the NHL is officiating

Posted by b.t.wilson on March 24, 2009 at 09:31 AM

I love Cote but Rupp with the edge for landing more, even if Cote's helmet took the brunt. Cote may not win many this year, but he's always game for a go and I love his energy and willingness. He rarely has a boring fight, win or lose or lose or lose.

Posted by Don Gorgon on March 25, 2009 at 03:28 PM

Cote is regressing as a fighter quick. I dont think he threw a punch that would have landed above the shoulders on Rupp, except for the first jab. Can the NHL force a mercy retirement on this guy before he gets hurt permanently? Its getting sad to see him get pounded every week.

Posted by bird12068 on March 25, 2009 at 08:32 AM

easy win for rupp,i agree rupp went down when he got turned around and out of position at the end but he was still hammering cote,he did the same thing when he fought asham a while back he started hammering him got turned around and looked lost, still think he needs to get a little more balls and he could be a good h-weight.

Posted by Snowrider on March 25, 2009 at 12:16 AM

Cote look so fustrated, he could not accept defeat, that suck. But great fight for both. Can't belive some people vote for Cote!!!!

Posted by pens08 on March 24, 2009 at 05:02 PM

who called this fight a draw? rupp clearly won this fight. cote was only pissed because he got beat again. i give the guy credit for being game but he has been all but useless as a fighter this year. he has no real hockey skills and he loses most of his fights. he will be in the minors before long

Posted by Happy2 on March 24, 2009 at 07:02 PM

Posted by mikebflorida on March 25, 2009 at 02:14 AM

Typical hf voting but hey, what can you do? Cote lands 2 lefts, Rupp lands 3 or 4 rights, Cote gets in better position, lands a left and Rupp bails out. Win Cote Anyone who has ever said Uncle, loses and Rupp screamed Uncle!

Posted by Static908 on March 26, 2009 at 12:51 PM

I don't know what fight everyone was looking at but maybe you should replay it. Cote got in a few nice ones in the beginning. Rupp came back but if you look right before Rupp dropped to the ice, Cote catches him on the chin with a short left. That punch dropped Rupp to the ice. Win Cote for knocking Rupp down and he obviously didn't want to get back up. Click replay people and watcha alittle closer..

Posted by cotefan92 on March 24, 2009 at 09:42 AM

Rupp Turtled i dont know who is more funny MCB 79 or the fact that he is always the first one to post and always gets under your skin LOL

Posted by KevMack on March 24, 2009 at 12:39 PM

Quick start by Cote, good finish by Rupp. No way this is anything else but a draw, regardless of what the Cote haters say, or the Flyer homers say. I think you're both equally ignorant/annoying.

Posted by joer1980 on March 24, 2009 at 03:04 PM

At first I thought Cote got his A$$ kicked again. After watching in slow mo, I think the uppercut at the end might have buckled Rupp a little bit. Hard to call. If the last blow landed, I give it to Cote. If it didnt, I give it to Rupp.

Posted by TrueBlue26 on March 24, 2009 at 11:27 AM

cute cute

Posted by marinermoose38 on March 24, 2009 at 04:25 PM

To me, this looked like a DRAW. Cote definitely got in a couple early and Rupp seemed to have connected with a few in the middle-part of the fight.

Posted by goon10 on March 24, 2009 at 08:05 AM

I score it a draw for this reason: Rupp lands more shots but he looks absolutely out of it at the end of that fight. Cote doesn't pull him down, he basically crumples. So either he collapsed from exhaustion from throwing all those punches or Cote knocked him senseless with one of those short shots at the end. Rupp very clearly goes to the ice but the question is what sent him there.

Posted by Boogeyman2383 on March 24, 2009 at 06:20 PM

Rupp with the clear win. dont like the douche cote throwing punches when rupp was down. P*ssy move. the usual mcb post, so homerlike

Another fight, another loss for the NHL Punching Bag. He got really tough after Rupp fell down. What a sad goof piece of Flyer garbage. All you guys responding to cum-eater Mcb789 realize he pulls out his 3 incher and flogs it reading about all the attention he gets don't you?

Posted by tomales2 on March 24, 2009 at 03:36 AM

Clearly Rupp

Posted by BigBadBruins68 on March 24, 2009 at 02:39 PM

I don't think I saw one shot land for Cote. Maybe his first shot, but that was it. Rupp must've landed at least 15 unanswered punches. I think that constitutes a win, don't you guys agree?

Posted by Rex from MN on March 24, 2009 at 10:44 AM

I'm giving the win to Rupp on the principle that Cote went for the takedown when he was way behind and beaten hard. (Even though it's possible Rupp fell in this case.) Then Cote acted tough and mad when the refs were in. He did the same takedown thing against Orr. On one hand, I don't blame him for trying some damage control to his scrambled eggs brain, but he should stop instigating against the heavies if he wants to last long. On the other hand, I kind of love seeing Flyers get pounded, especially by Rangers...retribution for the old Bully days is still sweet.

Posted by bigwilly37 on March 24, 2009 at 11:35 AM

Cote wants more after the refs jump in, knew he lost another one I guess. Rupp has been a surprise this year, a few big wins and good tilts! Rupp with the victory in this one!!

Posted by stanggt3 on March 24, 2009 at 09:22 PM

Cotes face took a pounding. It was like a bobblehead He got punched around like a punching bag so bad he was actually angry at the end of the fight and was looking for cheapshots. Big W for RUpp who has had some poor fights lately

Posted by Flyers967 on March 24, 2009 at 02:29 AM

looked like rupp turtled when cote got his arm free.

Posted by kitcarnut on March 24, 2009 at 04:00 PM

Ah am I the only one who watched rupp clearly get dropped at the end????? One quick inside shot from Cote and rupp goes down. WTF you idiots watching. Rupp was beatch slapping with quick pulled punches that weren't bothering cote much. May score points with judges,but the one licking the ice at the end is clearly the loser.and that was Rupp.
