Carnotaurus sastrei is ~600kg larger, it is a pretty strong animal. It might have had a weak bite, but it hada good gape, and we know for a fact that even Deinonychus antirrhopus had a very strong bite, being able to damage bones, as a paper says. So Carnotaurus would have a very powerful bite on its own, but its opponent is no pushover. Arms won't be very useful, since they can't be actually really deadly (unless they damage the foe's eyes, which I find unlikely). A slap or slash from Neovenator salerii wouldn't generate enough kinetic energy to cause severe damage.

I have explained that they can't cause that much injury (by doing a slapping move, holding and slashing is actually very effective and I agree with you if this is what you were talking about), the arm is not that heavy compared to the foe' body, which means a slap-like move won't generate enough kinetic energy to cause a powerful impact.

Well, Bears are larger than humans (by a lot), but this here is a situation where it is smaller. Also, Bears have stronger front limbs than Neovenator salerii, at parity (if we ignore the square cube law). Not by much really, but they have far more impressive, muscular front limbs.
Hatzegopteryx: That's not even the beginning, the whole forum is disturbingly lethargic.

Spinosaurus Maroccanus: I'm quite surprised how no one has touched the Argentina 97ma thread

Hatzegopteryx: This forum needs some serious attention; I'll be at it for a moment, unless I get other tasks that do not allow me to do so.

Hatzegopteryx: It's a genetic fallacy. It's basically an argument that intends to discredit the opponent's position by asserting the opponent's failure to act consistently in accordance with that position.
