Can I criticize Crosby without being berated on here for it?

Seriously guys just because other players do certain things doesn't make them any better.

Probably not.

And to be fair to those like myself who do the berating. If the Crosby haters didn't start a thread for every single thing he does that they don't like, it probably wouldn't be a big deal. But since they do, it has become a broken record and I for one don't want LGW to become the home of bashing Sidney Crosby. Let the Flyers board do that.

And the haters in my mind are such hypocrites. All they do is say that Crosby annoys them, that he gets far too much attention, that he doesn't deserve all the attention and then out of the other side of their mouth they point out that just because he's Sidney Crosby he shouldn't get any slack for pulling bulls*** or for whining to the refs or whatever.

So which is it? So when he is just playing the game and playing it well he shouldn't get so much attention because there are other great players.

Or

When he does something wrong, OMFG! Let's nitpick and point out everything b/c he's not just like every other player and we need to point out all his faults.

If Sid shouldn't be getting so much attention when there are other great players out there, then by all means the haters are free to nitpick everything that AO or Malkin or Thornton or anybody else does. When they start doing that, i'll start buying their bulls*** that Sid shouldn't get so much attention or shouldn't be the league's poster child.

I'll admit that Crosby jumping a guy shouldn't really matter on a Wings board but the "crotch punching" incident was pretty unique and worthy of discussion here.

The guy gets the most attention out of any player. On HFboards there is an ad asking if I have a higher IQ than Sidney Crosby every time I do anything there. It gets annoying. Just like it would be annoying to see any other star get that much attention.

My view on Crosby is he is a kid with a lot of emotion but doesn't really know how to deal with it yet. He gets incredibly ornery at times and just loses it in inapropriate moments. He will mature over time.

What the heck is wrong with hating Sidney Crosby? Are you going to determine what can and cannot be posted? Are you kidding me? Anyone can start thread about anything as long as it's not against board rules and if you do not like it then do not read it. Simple as that.

Nothing. I explained to him that people will complain about him because fans expect more (and at least try to be on better behavior crosby won't be perfect all the time, and we know this, and we shouldn't expect him to, because nobody is perfect) of the person who carries the title of 'face of the NHL' , more so than a regular player or a player who is merely the face of a single franchise.

Oh brother. Yes, that is my intention. I want to tell everybody what they can and can't post. Grow up and get a clue. And did I ever say ANYWHERE that there's anything wrong with hating Sidney Crosby. No, I didn't. All I've been saying is that it is getting old seeing so many Crosby bash threads on LGW.

Come up with something better than the old "change the channel/don't read it" argument. Look around, i'm not the only LGWer sick and tired of bash threads over every little thing Crosby does. If people want to bash Crosby relentlessly, they can ******* go over to the Flyers board and to that s*** where there are plenty more like minded people.

LGW doesn't need to be the home of bashing Sidney Crosby. That's just my opinion. Don't preach to me. You're nobody to be preaching to me. Really, you're nobody to me.

Bitching about people bitching is more annoying than the people bitching in the first place.

I actually don't mind bitching either way because threads like these give me something entertaining to read at work. Some very funny posts come out of threads like these.
