Other Penalties: Jesse Winchester and Robyn Regehr each received a roughing.
You know, I used to like Neil a few seasons ago, but I now see what a piec of sh-t he is. Trust me, I like a good agitator as much as we all do, but he just plain is bad for the sport these days. Jamal wants to square off and get er' goin' but Neil just does the grab and hold on until Jamal is off balance and goes down, then Neil feels tough, and throws a few punches. Way to go tough guy-hope you feel better about yourself- way to kick a guy while he's down. Are you the same guy that steals candy from children!?! DRAW because Neil has no respect!
Draw, mayers slips and cheapshot Neil hits while he's down, I refuse to count those cheap shots, so DRAW it is
both fighters were tied up, Neil resorting to his old tricks and hitting his opponent while he's down, fuck I hate that guy -- draw
meh whatever fight. i agree with swany65. piss on "the code" check history for fights. a fight is a fight. if you let up on a guy when he is down good on you. classy. but get in a fight and protect yourself at all times. dont expect to be let off. this code crap is made up by armchair pugilists to console themselves when their boy gets beat down. if you're gonna fight Neil deal with it. if jamal didnt like it he can fight him again and headbutt him - whatever. o,r take Neil down and throw a few after. since when were there rules in a fight? and who made them?
draw, no points for punched when down
Hey morons it is called a fight - I don't give a sh1t if the guy falls down, nothing wrong with throwing a few extra. However, what comes around goes around.
One of these days Neil is going to fight someone who will keep pounding his ass when he is down just to prove a point. It will probably happen when there are multiple scrums on the ice and the refs won't be able to save him so quickly. And he will deserve every extra shot he takes because of how often he does it, then he makes it worse most of the time by showing the other guy up to the crowd. When Orr and Carkner went all 3 times did anyone see either of them hit each other when then were on the ice(not while falling down but on the ice)? NO, and each win was decisive and the last one Orr TKO'd Carkner and all he did was skate to the box and sit down. No show boating, no hitting when Carkner went down. Neil is just pushing his luck and when it catches up to him it will be brutal. Mayers did slip too!!!
DRAW---Neil does'nt land anything until Mayers is down but thats how he roles---Neil is a piece of garbage
Win for Neil, but a gutless move for a seasoned guy to keep throwin' 'em while Mayers was down
mayers is a terrible fighter, Neil with the win.
Glad to see Neil throwing, but he needs to lay off a bit when the dude is down. W for Neil.
Darren McCarty's comments on Versus last night were great. "If i had Jaml Mayers on the ice id keep punching him too." W Neil
Total lack of class by Neil to continue throwing punches after he's wrestled Mayers to the ice. But a win for Neil nonetheless.
I hate Neil he is a cheap shot artist but he won the fight Mayers need to hang up the skates he just sucks overall.
If Mayers doesn't lose his balance, its probably a draw.
Mayers has been a fighting machine since he's been traded! Neil handles Mayers in an ok fight at best.
Neil needs to get a f***ing a$$ kicking by someone for always throwing punches when the guy is down. Needs to start showing some class in his fights, not impressed gave this one a draw because punches that land when the guy is on the ground shouldn't give a fighter the edge
Neil is a tough mother but is classless. Stone169 obviously only watches Sens home games because the scrappers with class don't have to show boat. Neil is the same as that piece of crap Carcillo
Well, since joining Calgirlsarehairy, Mayers finally fights a guy that actually knows how to fight and loses. Typical Flamers crap. Neil's a pretty bad dude and I love seeing him beat on a Flamer.
neil takes it but those extra shots are just lame, an "old" guy like neil should know better than that. doesn't seem like mayers was too damaged by it all, i hope not anyways, but then again thats not my melon being punched by those big hamhocks.
neil gets the win but he should have stopped punching once mayers went down.
The more I watch Neil fight, the more impressed I am. Think about it......Years in the league with same team and not afraid to take on the big guys....he's won his share, and lost just as many. He's a gutsy player who knows his role. Neil wins decisively in a "sleeper"......Jamal is just not in the same class yet.....
Why do all of Mayers fights seem to end the same way, i don't think i've ever seen one of his fights last longer than 20 seconds.
Neil is a rat, I notice he fights at home and is generally a kitty cat on the road....did he even play in toronto last week ???? gutless
Win Neil. But he has no class and he needs get asskicked to learn the code.
I guess I have to, begrudgingly, go with Neil's big finish... but things were pretty even until the mutual helmet loss.
Lorne2006...Lorne2006...Watch out Chritine, he is coming to 'visit you'...he is the internet bully that loves cheesburgers....Lorne2006...HE IS NOT A LEAFS FAN! LORNE2006...LORNE2006..he coming to sit on you soon.
Neil you big puss boy hitting while that little puss boy Mayers is on the ground it figure's you alcoholic peace of shit ,by the way both teams suck my BIG BLACKHAWK!!!!!!!
Cheapshots delivered by Neil when Mayers was down--total bush league.
Ok fight, nothing special. However I'd have to disagree with all you people whining about "The Code". If you have ever been in a real hockey fight you would understand that the last thing you are thinking about as another guy punches your face is how nicely you will let him off. Once the fight is clearly over is when a respect level is necessary and if you watch this fight, or many other Neil fights he lets up when its over. One extra punch in the heat of a fight is nothing. If you don't beleive me try actually fighting instead of rating them.
You kinda get the feeling that Mayers is one of those guys that nobody is going to follow the code with don't ya fellas? Who knows what he said about Neil's Momma. I've seen Neil hold up more than once this season when he could have let a guy have it. Let's leave the decision up to him shall we?
i agree with wannago_letsgo. win neil tho
Neil with the win!
Crap move by Neil at the end of the fight. Win for Neil though.
Hats off to Mayers for moving up in weight class. Not the same as fighting Tom Kostopoulos is it ? Good showing ...edge to Neil. Neil knows better than to pull that S*&t !
Neil clear win!
good shots by neill the win over rypien must have given him a boost. mayers is a calgary fagg and gets to pay his due in this one win neill
Neil proves he is the MW champ of the NHL, he can pick apart any chump in the league. period
Win Chris Neil.
I just want to say to all the Neil haters. Neil isn't the only one in the league who still throwing on the way down. Most of them do it and all of them have done it at some point in their career. As for the showboating comment...They all showboat in their home building.
Old school hockey, fight till the linesmen or the cops jump in.... W Neil, who ends up taking a big steaming dump on the book of codes!!!!
Neil with the win.
who cares if he punbched them when they were donw they arnt enforcers. Win niel
its funny how chris looks at him like " are you sure you wanna do this ?" and then destroys him..
Neil may not be a heavy weight but he is a scrapper. You either like him or love him. I find it funny that people criticized Neil for not fighting Mayers when he was a leaf, but Mayers does not fair well at all in this one.
neil's a class-less idiot. Look forward to his funeral
Crap fight, how does this get an average rating of 4.6?
Free Bart Powwow!!!! Woof woof....Mayers is a bum....Christine....biggest pu$$y and biggest head in the league, picks and chooses his fights, Why didnt ya try Orr saturday night Christine??? ya seen your buddy Carkner doing the " seal" on the ice...is that why? Woof Woof!! 6 cheeseburgers for the 2007dog!
OTTAWA 'FANS' ....HOW Can you support a *ussy like chris neil when he attacks a palyer who is clearly on the ice???? and don;t even get me started about asking what i mean???? jesus...this guy is the epitome (i know, big word for those who like ottawa but tyr the dicitonary, you might find it interesting) of a 'POS' ......
Is Chris Neil the biggest piece of crap in the league? Let's look at his last three fights - he gets beat by Bolton and throws a late punch on the ground, after the Rypien fight he jeers to the crowd like a circus clown and then here, the late punches again. Can you really be authentic when your year of fighting includes Steve Begin, Luke Schenn, Steve Downie? Actually he did fight Godard though but that's right, a late cheap shot after the refs came in and he still lost the fight. Chris - I know you read these posts. Clean up the act. You're half a step away from sideshow status.
Neil showing how good of a fighter he is once again.....punching people while there down on the ground.Draw
Might have given the slightest of edges to Neil until the bs once Mayers had slipped. Chris, remember, you don't play for the Nucks. Mayers, while game, is probably getting a little old for this sort of thing.
Surprise, surprise ... Chris Neil throws punches while the other guy is down. No clear winner, draw!
Neil makes me embarrassed to be Canadian. He's perfect in Ottawa, where rodents thrive. He's a total rat, punching a good guy like Mayers when he's down. Between pretty boy Alphie, Mike the saint Fisher and white trash Neil, Ottawa fans get what they deserve - a team of losers for their loser city.
pretty even..bad code for Neil
is it just me or do most of Neil's punches land after Mayers is down?
Back in the day players would fight until the refs ripped them apart. Didn't matter if on the ground or standing up. All this "code" bullshit started when these damn staged fight started happening between heavyweights. And what's with this bullshit about asking a player to go. Niel didn't ask Mayers to fight here, he just did. This is the way all fights should be.
riffraff - this code crap is made up by armchair pugilists to console themselves when their boy gets beat down...since when were there rules in a fight? and who made them? swany65 - All this "code" bull**** started when these damn staged fight started happening between heavyweights There's a book out called, oddly enough, "The Code" that discusses the whole code thing. Guys like Tony Twist, Marty McSorley and others talk about their experiences and how they learned what it was all about. Maybe you can have someone read it to you.
mayers sucks neil's balls.
Neil does nothing until he puss puss wrestles mayers down so he can punch him cause thats what tough guys do, wait until their opponent has no chance then hit them. If thats the case Neil must be the toughest guy in the league. C-7 enforcer, it will never happen because Neil picks and chooses his fights like the piece of garbage that he is and the people that he fights arent complete trash like him. Neil reflects the senators, and their fans perfectly, complete garbage. Neil has never been a fighter, he never will be until he actually fights rather than tying someone up, holding, holding, holding, then 2 quick punches, hold hold hold, 2 more make the other person fall then hit em a few more times, skate off waving my arms in the air like I deserve the recognition to make all those idiots cheer like rednecks at a nascar race.
No clear winner here but a clear loser in Neil for his typical dirty actions, plus I think he may be racist
