albertosaurus vs Spinosaurus

Just like ninjasaurus rex, I love my tyrannosaurids. But I seriously got to go with the more likely candidate for winning and that is... Spinosaurus.
It was huge compared to old Albert, around 6x bigger!
Spino had huge arms with long fingers on them. On each long finger was a curved dagger that could be used to even impale slippery fish. Tyrannosaurids, such as Albertosaurus, had small, two-foot arms that had sad claws at the end. They were very uncurved and they were blunt just like the hindclaws.
Spinosaurus was also more bulky compared to the albertosaur.

Yes, I agree that spino would have pwned alberto, but alberto's claws were not blunt at all.

I disagree strongly. Spinosaurus is over twice the size of Albertosaurus, with superioir weapons and stregnth (except mabye bite force, but this is debatable).
70/30 to Spinosaurus.
Don't you see? Although Spinosaurus is twice Albertosaurus' size, it doesn't mean it is extremely formidable. Take the fight between the Velociraptors and the Maiasaura, for example. The Velociraptors hunt in groups, whereas the Maiasaura lives in solitude. The Velociraptors are definite to win. Likewise, Albertosaurus hunts in small packs, up to 3 members. However Spinosaurus has an advantage in size, as in te way Maiasaura was able to swing off the Velociraptors hanging on it. I insist on my ideas, unless you can prove it to me.

This is a ridiculous mis-match. Spinosaurus was over 6 times the size of Albertosaurus, and since it is a one on one fight, hypothetical packs do not count.
I would also rate dromaeosaurids giant killing abilities above tyrannosaurids abilities to do such things.

To be precise, Spinosaurus is 6 times bigger in terms of mass, and around 2 times bigger in terms of legnth.
Spinosaurus WAS extremely formidable. It was a giant bear on steroids (well, sort of).
And comaprining this fight to Maiasaurus vs Veliciraptor is completely sinsane. Completely. And where in the title does it say that the alberatosaurus in this fight is in a pack?
Also, can YOU prove your own ideas?
I am using common sense.

Spinosaurus to win atleast 70/30.

Hmmm, I thought they were. But still, the claws on the hind feet are usually formidable weapons in most theropods, but tyrannosaurs hindclaws were blunt. That's why GSP believes that the dinosaurs that had sharp claws could of hopped on their tails like kangaroos and use their claws to jab a pretty nasty wound.

Except that theropod tails probally were not designed for such a thing, and is a pretty laughable thing to suggest. Even weak jawwed theropods would probally still be able to do more reliable or plain old more damage with their jaws.

I've never personally heard of the hind leg claws being blunt, in fact on wikipedia it indirectly said that they were sharper than an allosauruses'. But it doesn't really matter in this.

i'm pretty sure most therapods had sharp claws on their feet.

I was informed that carnosaurs and tyrannosaurs had blunter hindclaws then the ceratosaurs. And I didn't say that I thought the tail-hopping hype was true or not Spinodontosaurus.

Hmm, really? Mind finding a link? All the pictures of the hindclaws show them as being pretty sharp.

Sorry, they don't have the whole book, Predatory Dinosaurs of the World, on Google Books. But in it, it has a page (and at the back of the book a reference) explaining the claw sharpness. I can't find it at the moment but its in there.

Well, still, the hind claws were not blunt. They may have been blumter, but they were still sharp.

spinos bite was moderate not weak, his arms were tough enough to puncture iron (Biggest killer dino documentary) he would easily kill albertosaurus.

Although that documentary was inaccurate, I agree. Spino's arms had at least 2 tons of force to them, and capped with 15 inch claws, they could easily rip open 1/8 inch steel.
