Jones Fight

Unfortunately, the Springfield board at MassLive is more about flame wars between Falcons fans and Phoenix Coyotes trolls (Phoenix used to be their parent) than about talking about the games. J-town's fans do a better job of sticking to talking about what's happening on the ice (although some of them do a fair share of griping too).

From today's SF Republican

The second period produced a scrap between a pair of rookie centers, Blair Jones and Lowell's Rod Pelley.

"It was just one of those things where we got on each other's nerves," Jones said. "I guess that's how you settle those, sometimes."

Pelley scored a takedown win in what was the first professional fight for each, prompting Jones to say he might go to his roommate, Falcon heavyweight Mitch Fritz, for some tips.

"I'm sure he won't be afraid to give me a few pointers," Jones said. "
