Video: Jeremy Roenick on the finer points of fighting

Mar 19, 2013, 9:45 PM EDT

Fights are a great crowd-pleaser, but every now and then, we see a scuffle that shows that the fisticuffs should be left to the “professionals.” In the video below, Jeremy Roenick joins Michelle Beadle to flesh out the art and craft of dropping the gloves:

    They should be embarrassed to have this woman on a sports show. I don’t say that in a sexist way I say that in a she knew absolutely nothing kind of way

    No, Michelle Beadle, it is not wrong that you want to see Crosby get in a fight and lose. I also would love to see that happen every time Cindy steps on the ice.

      she didnt say lose and she hasnt watched hockey long or she wouldve seen crosby fight…several times. apparently roenick hasnt seen it either because he referenced a non fight between crosby and giroux. unfortunately for the haters crosby doesnt lose at fighting either…ask ference or niskanen about it

    To bad every time he steps on the ice the Pens win. Philly… Not so much. See ya in the playoffs. Oh… Maybe not. Well at least Philly can still win fights.

    Ironman has a classic case if memory loss…

    You mean the 10 strait wins. You are correct. I don’t remember the last time the Pens lost. It was sometime in February.

    Can’t see the video because this app is garbage. In assuming this is in reference to the crossover. The worst show on television….. Please get this crap off my tv. What happened to post game shows?

    What’s wrong, Michele, is that you have a high profile job simply due to sex appeal when every year thousands of aspiring sports journalists graduate college already more qualified than you to do your job.

    Crosby losing a fight? Thats just silly. He has not lost one yet.

    • jpelle82 - Mar 20, 2013 at 10:49 AM

      i think ballard got the better of him even though crosby got the takedown, but he has whooped everyone else he has fought…niskanen, zidlicky, ference

    To be fair, Michelle Beadle was dating Matthew Barnaby for a while, so she probably knows a thing or two about fighting.

    So, are NHL fights and fighters the product of pre-existing conditions…?

    Researchers determine that brain damage causes MMA fights: Written by Alexander Huntley Monday, 04 March 2013

    MORGANTOWN, VA – Researchers at the esteemed Brain Injury Research Institute have determined that brain injuries cause mixed martial arts fights.
    “Before starting their careers in fighting, most fighters had chronic traumatic encephalopathy, memory loss and the peculiar desire to smash someone’s skull in with an elbow,” explained Dr. Julian Bailes, Chairperson of the Institute. “It is this severe lack of brain function that actually compels them to start MMA fighting in the first place.”

    MRI scans on the brains of future UFC fighters reveal a goopy mush of the frontal lobe, which controls reasoning, impulse control, non-violent speech and sponsor endorsement.

    MRI scans on the brains of future UFC fighters reveal a goopy mush of the frontal lobe, which controls reasoning, impulse control, non-violent speech and sponsor endorsement.

    This news comes too late for fighters like UFC Heavyweight Champion Brock Lesnar and his wife Reno Mero.

    “It all started with the accident,” Mero stated with her husband violently assaulting a pillow in the background. “Years ago while he was completing his Ph.D in zoology, he was struck in the head by a two-by-four by his beloved research monkey Frito. That started the slow decline from football, then anthropology, the WWE and finally UFC.”

    Other MMA fighters were delighted by the discovery however. “At least now I know I wasn’t born to stand in a cage and get my face smashed in by a giant man’s knee,” said welterweight competitor Matthew Riddle. “I am a victim in all this.”

    The Institute’s next study will examine why UFC fans take such a pleasure watching two clearly mentally handicapped men roll around with each other half-naked in a strong embrace.
