    Of course. If it was anyone else doing it to anyone else, there'd be LOL memes everywhere.

    I don't think anyone is out to get him.

    I think it's a symptom of jealousy and a rep that won't shake.

    He's been the best player in the world for a few years and, any year he wasn't, he was top 3. He came into the league with some maturity issues and people won't let them go.

    theres literally pictures in this thread of an NHL team filling the urinals at their arena with pictures of crosby so the fans can piss on him. If thats not unjustified hate then i'm not really sure what is

    There were several different tweets with different Crosby urinal pictures out there. But it was obviously the work of one fan or a small group trying to be funny.

    The Flyers organization came out and denied any part of it.

    I assumed, when posting it, people would understand that it had nothing to do with the team or anyone working at the arena. I don't think any professional working for the team or at the arena in their right mind would do that.

    Anyway.... here's a pretty brutal article, but enjoyable reading depending on who anyone is rooting for...

    I remember this. If I recall correctly, that game went to a shootout and Crosby scored the winning goal.

    I have no idea how the Penguins are beating the genius that is Dave Hakstol, but I'm surprised!

    Flyer fans better hope Crosby never stops "sucking" when he plays them...apparently if he played well theyd get crushed so hard they might have to fold the franchise and start over lol

    I really wish people would stop and appreciate the player. Crosby is a top player ever to have played the game at a competitive level. All he's ever done is show up on the big stage over and over again. All he knows how to do is win. When all is said and done and his career is over he will be in the same breath as Mario, Howe and Gretz. Appreciate what we're all seeing here, people. He's as close to a playing legend as there can be and most of us will likely never see it again in our lives.

    here's hoping he gets the chance. Last time was obviously not great, I'm sure he'd like another go at it. But let's not get ahead of ourselves. Here's hoping for no more letdowns vs the Flyers.

    Holy **** that part about Flyers fans bemoaning Crosby’s line-treading, after glorifying Clarke and co. for years, is so accurate.

    Got to be Washington

    Philly did get the better of Crosby once. Washington can’t even say that.
