Video- Capitals Question Rich Clune Fight With Patrick Wey

from Katie Carrera of Capitals Insider,

That Clune, an experienced fighter, took on an inexperienced player who has barely any track record with fisticuffs didn’t sit well with some of the Capitals even though they acknowledged Wey wasn’t ambushed into fighting.

“They had a little tangle before the fight and they were talking to each other a bit and Weysie seemed to be a willing combatant,” Troy Brouwer said. “But at the same point guys who are known to be fighters, they have to have enough respect to pick their spots to know when guys are able to fight fighters.”

Said Oates: “I’m surprised the guy would do that but they had contact, they kind of looked each other in the eye and Patrick also didn’t back down. Got to give him credit for that.”

more including Oates saying it appears  Wey will be okay.  No concussion test was given last night but he did not return to the game..

Watch the fight below...

If you watch the video a few times, you can see clune pretty much initiates the fight, and throw the first punches before wey even knew what was coming at him. It was like clune wanted to fight and that was that, there was no “you wanna go?” That’s what pussy’s do. Great job a fuc*ing clown clune.

Clune got his gloves off first, but it’s not like Wey was dazed before he could cast off his own mitts. In fact, Clune’s gloves came off while Wey was throwing a gloved punch at him.

You don’t want to fight Dicky Clune? Then don’t *#$%@& fight him. Turtle and then tell the press in the postgame that you don’t want Dicky Clune’s career; you want to be a hockey player.
