    Watch Nick Foligno Send Dion Phaneuf Head-Over-Heels (Video)

    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)

    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’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 […]

    Dion Phaneuf Delivers A Devastating Check On Mike Sauer (Video)

    Many NHLers will probably tell you that Toronto Maple Leafs defenseman Dion Phaneuf is one of the hardest hitters in the game.  After being on the receiving end of one of Phaneuf’s monstrous checks, I’m almost certain that Mike Sauer would agree. With time running out in the third period of last night’s game between […]

    Huge NRL Hit Proves Size Doesn’t Matter (Video)

    When Lance Hohaia of the New Zealand Warriors decided to step up and take on Petero Civoniceva of the Penrith Panthers during a National Rugby League match, it was clearly a battle of David vs. Goliath.  And as we all know by now, David always seems to come out on top of these match-ups. This […]

    After losing their first two games of the season, the Ottawa Senators found themselves trailing the Minnesota Wild by a score of 2-0 during the second period of last night’s game.  They were looking for some sort of spark to turn their season around, and they finally found it, in the form of a bone-crushing […]

    Keep Your Head Up Kid! (Video)

    Hockey season is upon us, and while many of us can’t wait to sit back and watch all 30 NHL teams beat up on each other in order to get their shot at raising the Stanley Cup above their heads eight months from now, some of you may be thinking about lacing up the skates […]

  • The Hardest Hit Yesterday Came From The CFL? (Video)

    The Hardest Hit Yesterday Came From The CFL? (Video)

    Yes, it did! The National Football League returned to action as they kicked off their 2011 regular season yesterday, and while their players may be bigger, stronger and faster than those playing in the Canadian Football League, it doesn’t necessarily mean that they hit harder.  Just ask Winnipeg Blue Bombers quarterback Buck Pierce, who was […]

  • Here Is The Hardest Hit From The NFL Preseason (Video)

    Here Is The Hardest Hit From The NFL Preseason (Video)

    Brodney Pool and Riley Cooper probably wont get much playing time once the 2011 NFL regular season begins, so last night’s exhibition game between the Philadelphia Eagles and the New York Jets was likely their last opportunity to get themselves some significant playing time and perhaps make the highlight package.  They did just that, and […]

    Now that the National Football League is officially back, we won’t have to worry about relying on Canadian Football League highlights to satisfy our football fix throughout the fall and winter seasons.  However, until the 2011 NFL season kicks off one month from now, those CFL highlights will have to do. And here is another […]
