I think this forum would be a lot better off with a rule along the lines of no Crosby threads unless its actually relevant. Seriously.

I'll sign that petition.

Sort of felt it was too good to be true, if you're good at physics you can actually confirm if it's possible or not.


A puck weighs 6 ounces. A goal net weighs close to 70 pounds. That alone is enough to tell anyone with a brain that it's a fake. Smart idea for a ad, though. It's clearly viral, and the ad's point is that the stick provides a ton of extra power on your shot.

A gumball, weighing 3 ounces can pierce your skull if it reaches terminal velocity. Weight vs weight is a terrible argument if you don't factor in speed. Anchor in one post like the video and I could find a friend to replicate it. A shot is like 100+ foot pounds, which is clearly enough to move a net.

1. The pegs were in the posts.
2. Plenty of those shots are fishy.
3. The net moves WAY too much on some of the shots.
4. It's a reebok commercial meant to "demonstrate" the amount of power you can unleash on a shot.

Let's assume that a 9mm bullet fired from a gun is what would be required to move the goal frame. If that's so, then the puck would have to be fired at close to 200 mph. As you may have guessed, that's much faster than the puck is moving in the video. And another telling fact; the last shot hits the bottom third of the net, and lifts it off the ice. The first four hit it in the top half and don't. If they're that powerful, they should have.

At 0:45, when the camera zooms closer to the net, the net moves before the puck makes contact. Not only is it fake, but its not even faked well.


Reebok sucks, and Crosby is still a ******.

Crosby is going to be unstoppable like Michael Jordan of the 90s. Better let the NHL know, mindfly. I think you're onto something here.

Same here. I swore off Reebok after they put that ugly mug in those performance shoe commercials.

1. It isn't real. It's a viral ad for Reebok's new stick.
2. Nobody on LGW wants to hear about a stupid ad from Sidney Crosby.
3. Stop trying to troll people.


This is what I hate about society now. Advertising is so ingrained that people can't even tell when something is a commercial. The blurring of lines between reality and fake is just ridiculous.

What I don't understand about Reebok is how their marketing team thinks putting Crosby's face on everything in an area like Detroit is going to sell more gear. I was at target the other day, and they were selling Reebok skates with Cindy's mug on the box. Wouldn't they be better served putting Zetterberg on it for the Detroit market?

That was a commercial? I could have sworn that was a documentary on a new species of hamster.
