    I love when Mac just snaps and goes off. It's pretty funny. Hope he doesn't injure his hand or anything though during one of these fights.

    That punch at :54 connected straight to the side of MacArthur's head.

    LaRose connected one hell of a punch it looked like.

    Unfortunately for him, it only made the beast that is MacArthur even more angry.

    Mac takes this decision easily.

    In the arena they showed a replay looking straight down on the fight (from the scoreboard I guess) and it looked a LOT harder than on the TV clip. He basically roundhoused MacArthur in the temple.

    LaRose seemed to go into some sort of spinning spaz-attack after his punch lol. I prefer these kind of fights than when the heavyweights go, personally. More emotion, and generally more entertainment.

    Same here, I love when the players get so frustrated that they fight.
    No pre mature fight talks just in the heat of the moment between two people who don't usually fight.

    Shows how much they are in the game.
     
  12. And Macarthur basically spun him around like his *****

    Mac said he felt he had unfinished business with LaRose after how the last game ended between the Leafs and Canes. As for the fight, it was definitely entertaining to see Mac ragdoll someone as if he's Chara. The best part is how everyone is going around saying Mac is a fighter, he's not even close to a fighter, he leads the Leafs in points. LaRose got handled, but I guess people can seek solace in his ballerina "roundhouse to the temple" as if it mattered.

    Jesus the inferiority complex with you guys is astounding. Kudos to Mac for beating up 5'9'' Chad LaRose, as he should. It is possible to appreciate LaRose's nice connect despite Mac ragdolling him immediately after.

    "Unfinished business" is ridiculous too. Does this still stem from Grabovski's vendetta?

    I really think fights like these are so much more entertaining than anything we see from heavyweights. More emotion here than in staged fights.

    Inferiority complex indeed. Nobody is saying that LaRose won the fight, just that he connected the best punch.

    Of course, it was only the second best punch of the night :sarcasm:

    He doesn't do it often, but he can scrap pretty well.

    First of all, what you're attempting to claim, it wouldn't be classified as inferiority complex, but I'm glad to see you're committed to throwing out stupid remarks in more than one thread, keep on trucking. You keep bringing up 5'9" like it supposed to somehow make LaRose a hero and Mac a villain. Mac is 6'0, that's not that much bigger than LaRose. No matter how you spin it, "LAROSE IS A NON-FIGHTER!!!!", "OH CONGRATS ON BEATING UP SOMEONE 5'9", LaRose got beat up by another non-fighter, big deal, stop grasping for something to make it look better for LaRose, it's really not that big of a deal to say Mac beat up LaRose.

    We don't know what is said on the ice, we don't see or hear everything that goes on. If Mac felt he had unfinished business with LaRose that's his prerogative. Obviously LaRose felt there was enough there to drop the gloves.

    Hahaha, I love it when you can't win an argument in a thread, so you start throwing around the equivalent of "You mad?". Landing the best punch, that's rich. If you classify the "best punch" as the one that did the least amount of damage and had absolutely no affect on the fight, then sure.

    Good on MacArthur for not throwing while LaRose was down.

    :laugh: What in the **** are you talking about? I don't care if Mac pummeled LaRose or not. LaRose wanted to fight, so he got what was coming to him. All I'm doing is complementing the fact that LaRose landed a hell of a nice punch on Mac. I'd compliment LaRose if he landed the same punch on Ray Whitney or some other random small non-fighter, because it was a hell of a punch for a guy like LaRose

    Good god, now I understand why everyone hates Toronto fans. I know there are a lot of good ones out there, but some of you just embarrass your fanbase. :facepalm:

    I don't understand what the big deal here is.

    LaRose landed a beauty of a punch to MacArthur's noggin. If it had been a real fighter throwing that punch, MacArthur would be in a coma right now. But it wasn't a real fighter, it was little Chad LaRose who is the NHL equivalent of a yapping chihuahua. Getting clocked by him is like getting bitten in the face by a chihuahua... hilarious, embarrassing and awesome at the same time.

    Wait, I just realized why you guys are making a big deal out of downplaying it. Carry on.

    Your consistent, I'll give you that, one stupid remark a post, good stuff. You brought up 5'9 in your original post because? Was it just to fill us in on his height? Was the kudos legit and the height comment just a randomly inserted thing? Give me a break, you're not clever, you're not fooling anyone. Ahh yes I'm a complete embarrassment to my fanbase, that's it. Why not just come right out and say that you're not that bright and can't think of anything to say that makes you come out as intelligent in this discussion.
