2. I've watched four of Thomson's fights this season. Other than Bowen, which one wasn't he given a shot at? The one off the draw, the one in Erie where they squared-off, or the one with Gemel Smith where he wanted Smith and had to be held back by the officials?
For one, who did Thomson hurt? I don't believe it was him who hit Sieloff was it? He just taunted him. I thought Alberga made the hit.
Second, he's had four fights, and Bowen's and last night's were the two he was in before he knew it. I agree the Sabourin and Crisp ones were more mutual - although, the Crisp was a non-fight. I'm just saying he has been red-lighted most of the year. I don't like that and don't necessarily agree with it, but it's the reality. Spott will not let him fight the straight tough guys. I have that on good authority. Team doesn't like the trade.
