Milbury slams Blysma and Crosby

I couldn't have said it better. Yeah, Milbury might be a douchebag at times, but this time he's right on the money. This double set of rules for one person and then the rest of the league is getting way too old. If you act like a spoiled kid, you should expect to get punished for it. He deserved what he got. I wish someone would line him up and knock him into next week.

Elaborate.

And, predictably, Milbury pusses out while Uncle Gary makes him apologize to his precious baby boy and his crying fans. Ugh. There goes that little, tiny shred of respect I had gained for Milbury.

Elaborate.

There are a few chosen players that seem to never be able to do any wrong in the league's eyes, and get treated as such. They start fights they can't finish, they dive, they ***** and moan to the media, and they give hockey a bad name. Its not just one player, though one player is the poster boy for it.

I love the Crosby comments, hate the Bylsma comments. I hate that skirt type bull s***. Plenty of people in skirts that could kick Milbury's ass. That gender s*** is so past relevant. Grow up dinosaur.

Crosby should get hit, because he is playing hockey.

When does Crosby start fights he can't finish? No idea where you get this from.

Crosby isn't the only star in the league to dive.

Have you ever tried to fight in a skirt? I can barely sit, stand, or breathe in one. There's a reason chicks are lady-like and restrained in a skirt. In a word: pantyhose.

Although I disagree with Mike that Bylsma should have fought. Coaches should leave that to the players and just yell stuff at each other. Suits don't have fight straps, and they probably need dry cleaning, and that's expensive.

Not sure what Milbury expected.

As for sending out the line that he did, I believe that you play to the last horn. If that's how you play when your team is behind, then you play that way whether you're behind by 1 or 11.

What bothers me the most about Crosby... is that I don't think he would have acted like this if he wasn't paired up with Mario when he got drafted.

I imagine an alternate reality where he was drafted anywhere that had a true hockey player vet with class to take him under the Wing.

I just don't think he takes a dive if he was drafted by a team like Detroit and played under Lidstrom. The difference in personality might have been epic.

I don't know what you are talking about. A skirt does not restrict breathing, nor does pantyhose. I have seen plenty of girls throw down in all sorts of garments. I find it funny, because suits are harder to fight in, as the shoulder seem makes it impossible to have full range of motion with the arms, which is far more important in a fight.

I digress, Milbury is a misogynistic dinosaur, and he should be taking heat for that and not his Crosby comments. Last I checked, he is getting paid for his opinion.

Where are all the ladies when these threads go down?!?!?

I just realized 55fan is a girl. I apologize. I still don't get why a skirt would inhibit your fighting, maybe you are wearing a size too small>?

Thanks for the backup...you said what I would have said, but you beat me to it. Much obliged. :)

Not surprising. However, Milbury apologizing or retracting his statement doesn't make it less true and I'm still glad someone finally said it.

No, but he's the one that gets shoved down our throats and treated like he's the second coming.

Crosby is the poster boy for 1) the NHL, 2) hockey at large, and - and here's The Thing for an ever increasing percentage of peeps - 3) diving, bitching-'n'-moaning, and all that cheddar.

And Crosby responds because, hey, he's Crosby.

http://www.post-gazette.com/stories/sports/penguins/crosby-responds-to-milburys-digs-629716/

Oh wait, maybe he's not going to respond...

Penguins center Sidney Crosby said today that he didn't care to respond to critical remarks NBC hockey analyst Mike Milbury made about him during an interview with a Philadelphia radio station Monday.

Phew, keeping his whiny mouth shut for a change.

And then, almost immediately, he responded, albeit briefly.

...never mind.

And of course, he unknowingly admits the whole double-standard when it comes to penalizing him.

"There are times when, it's a contact sport, and I do get involved, but I don't think I've gotten one penalty in a scrum since I've been back."

...despite the fact that there have clearly been times he should have been penalized. Spoiled little baby boy just doesn't ******* get it.

The problem with Crosby being the poster boy of the NHL is his behavior. He is immature and disrespectful, that is why I can't stand him and all the praise he is always getting. I've never had any respect for him because of us unprofessional behavior...yes he may be talented but that gets canceled out when you're a whiny *****.

Today on Hockeycentral, Doug Maclean was defending Crosby and doesn't understand why so many people rip him all the time. :lol:

Hey, Milbury only stated to the hockey world what many of us feel, so good for him. :clap:

Agreed.

While guys like Milbury, and Cherry irritate many fans - I gotta admit that I find myself agreeing with them from time to time.

Haha! Hilarious.

Little doggie Milbury runs back to his crate crying with his tail between his legs the second master Bettman scolds him. And he was just calling someone else a punk? Lol, thats rich!

(even though as we all agree that Crosby does act like a spoiled little punk)

I'm sure he cares more about making a (good) living and keeping his job than to stand up for fans of a sporting event.

Well, obviously. I was pointing out the immense and quite funny irony of him ranting about Cindy being a punk, only to completely punk out himself almost immediately after making the comment.

I never said it was only Crosby, I was addressing a whole group of young players who have this air of entitlement, like they have special rules that apply only to them. And I hate to say this but, it seems they are right.
