The attention this kid gets on our boards has seriously detracted from the quality of these boards over the past 2 years.

No kidding...
I myself don't like Crosby but all this whining over Crosby for petty stuff is getting ridiculous. Go look and the Lidstrom All-Star captain thread. The topic has nothing to due with Crosby yet half the thread is nothing but pot shots at Crosby. One in every five threads on this board turns into a mosh pit of Crosby hate.

It also doesn't help that the OP brought it up in that thread.

bitchboy87 won't skip that s***, he doesn't have the balls to do it like Lidstrom and Datsyuk did in 09. He's a *****!


Haha, if he skips he's an ******* that deserves to get in trouble. If he doesn't he's a pussybitch.

Yeah skipping the All-Star game because of a knee injury vs a concussion issue is a wee bit different. Being around bright lights and flashing lights all day is not a smart idea when dealing with a concussion.

Bitching about all the bitching about Crosby is equally as annoying, and takes up as much space in a thread as the actual bitching about Crosby. So in essence, you're contributing to the problem by saying you're above it.

Just like Lidstrom or Zetterberg, if the guy wants to make sure he is healthy for the game. I do not think he should be suspended. However if he isn't, and this book ends between other people being suspended for doing this I would be really upset.

Guy shouldn't have to play, plus it would piss Bettman off. Always a good thing.

Tootoo does NOT belong on this team. He is classless and I would rather see the Wings be bad than classless. I feel the same way about Bertuzzi as well, but he at least CAN make the team better. With Tootoo the team becomes worse and in danger of being classless. Would you have liked Claude on the team? Or Roy? No. So why would you be okay with that POS.

This thread has been closed due to emotions being higher than people's ability to read, interpret, and properly respond to simple posts.

People wouldn't be bitching about the bitching if the people originally bitching actually did research before bitching.

Stop bitching about the bitching about the bitching. Now that I'm bitching someone else is going to start bitching about my bitching.

The bitching needs to stop.

We need an "I hate Crosby" section of the forums.

Lebrun, Dreger and a slew of others have already squashed that idea. They said he's angry that he won't be involved because of his concussion, but also noted that last time he was hurt and couldn't play - he still showed up.


How old is he? :lol:

Oh brother :rolleyes: , why now all of a sudden. There's been headshots going on all season and since he now has one he's crying fowl. Besides he's suppose to have a "slight" concussion but he's still out. Sheesh I thought maybe that hit to the knoggin would have knocked some damn sense into him but alas, no!

Do you need a ***** slap?
Can't wait to read the "Phoenix: I still think it's a hockey market" chapter of Gary Bettman's autobiography. I'm guessing it's going to be chapter 11.

This thread isn't meant to complain about Crosby, so all the people complaining about our complaining can stop. If the title was "___(some other player)____ boycotts all star game" and we wanted to discuss it, does it make us obsessed with that player as well? It's an interesting story. And no one is forcing you to read. Just ignore it.

Very true. This forum needs a "Everything Crosby" sub forum on here.
