    AFLer Luke Breust Nearly Gets His Head Taken Off (Video)

    For the first time in a while we bring you a vicious head shot that did not take place during a hockey game.  Instead, this violent collision occurred during an Aussie Rules Football match between Hawthorn and Adelaide, as Luke Breust of the Hawks was attempting to keep his eye on the ball while running […]

    NRL Suspends Ben Te’o For Hit That Knocked Out Matt Groat (Video)

    During Friday’s NRL match between the Brisbane Broncos and the Wests Tigers, the Broncos’ Ben Te’o laid a devastating shoulder charge on the chin of Matt Groat that could keep both players out of action for a while. Players from both teams quickly attended to the injured Wests Tigers prop as he lay motionless on […]

    4-Year-Old Girl Lays Devestating Soccer Body Check (Video)

    This little girl may know that once she reaches somewhere around the age of 10, she may no longer be able to play sports with the boys.  So at the age of four, I guess she figured she may as well take this opportunity to impose her will on the boys while she is still […]

    Blake Griffin Gets Steamrolled By A Jason Smith Body-Check (Video)

    With the New Orleans Saints already taking plenty of heat for their involvement in “bounty-gate” these days, one can’t help but wonder if the city’s other sports team, the New Orleans Hornets, had a bounty program of their own in place last night that offered to pay a bonus to any player who could injure […]

    One way to eliminate vicious hits to the head in the game of hockey is to suspend players who delivered a check to the head of an opposing player.  That has been the strategy adopted by the NHL disciplinary committee. Another way that players can eliminate the problem of head-shots in the game of hockey […]

    In an earlier post on Devin Setoguchi’s comical shootout failure from last night, I happened to mention that for once, “it wasn’t the Habs embarrassing themselves.”  Truth be told, that statement isn’t entirely true.  Sure, the Canadiens weren’t the most embarrassing team on the ice during last night’s game against the Minnesota Wild, but it […]

  • Two Bone-Crushing Hits From The Flyers vs. Red Wings Game (Video)

    Two Bone-Crushing Hits From The Flyers vs. Red Wings Game (Video)

    Records weren’t the only thing falling at Joe Louis Arena last night.  Bodies were as well, as the battle between the Detroit Red Wings and the Philadelphia Flyers was not one for the faint of heart. With the Red Wings looking to tie the NHL record for consecutive home victories (20, which was set by […]

    Want To See A Hockey Player Fly? (Video)

    Many people have used the saying “When pigs fly” to describe something that is virtually impossible.  Being a sports lover and die-hard hockey fan, I have often used the term “when hockey players fly” to describe the Toronto Maple Leafs chances at winning another Stanley Cup or Scott Gomez’s chances of scoring another goal (it […]

    Some of you may recall a low hit by Brad Marchand on the Canucks’ Sami Salo that resulted in a five-minute clipping penalty and a five-game suspension for the Bruins’ forward.  Well it appears as though the NHL and their chief disciplinarian, Brendan Shanahan, have a very similar case on their hands following last night’s […]

  • The Niklas Kronwall Hit Parade Continues (Video)

    The Niklas Kronwall Hit Parade Continues (Video)

    On Wednesday night it was Vancouver Canucks forward Ryan Kesler who stepped onto the train tracks belonging to the “Niklas Kronwall express.”  On Thursday night, it was Tim Jackman’s turn to get lit up by the Detroit Red Wings defenseman. In both instances, the Wings’ opposition were able to capitalize immediately following the check, as […]

  • Cam Janssen Misses A Check, Ends Up In His Own Bench (Video)

    Cam Janssen Misses A Check, Ends Up In His Own Bench (Video)

    Cam Janssen’s punches always seem to be on target.  Unfortunately for him, the same can’t be said about his body-checks. During last night’s game between the New Jersey Devils and the New York Rangers, Janssen thought he had Tim Erixon lined up along the boards for a big hit, but when the Rangers’ defenseman sidestepped […]

    Referee Stephen Walkom Lays A Big Hit On Kimmo Timonen (Video)

    There were plenty of hits being dished out during last night’s game between the Washington Capitals and the Philadelphia Flyers, as the teams delivered a total of 22 and 21 hits, respectively.  However, their combined 43 hits were largely overshadowed by the single check delivered by the officiating crew. That hit came late in the […]

    James Harrison Will Probably Be Fined For This Hit On Colt McCoy (Video)

    The wallet of Pittsburgh Steelers linebacker James Harrison could be shedding some pounds following last night’s 14-3 victory over the Cleveland Browns. With the Browns driving down the field in the fourth quarter in search of the go-ahead touchdown, quarterback Colt McCoy was looking to escape the pressure by scrambling out of the pocket, but […]
