Default From the Commissioner's Office, new initiative for NY and Philly fans

"Hockey fans have long been known to show support for their favorite team by embracing the tradition of the playoff beard. However, we at the commissioner's office felt that after the past couple weeks of whining and complaining coming out of New York and Philadelphia; fans, players and coaches would be better served by "growing a pair" instead of growing a beard. We hope this will stem the outflow of whining and complaining coming out of both of these metro regions. All questions on this new initiative can be directed to the newly created office of Vice President of Coach and Fan Whining & Complaining which will be headed by the newly dubbed Broad Street Whiners."

Leave it up to a Penguins fan to come up with this, considering the experience they have with whining, they do have the queen on their team.....

Well we know the Flyers don't because if they had, they would have won a Cup more recently than 1975. Hey, don't forget.....the Steelers also get preferential treatment as well!

Anyone who saw that Super Bowl against Arizona knows that to be true.

Could have been worse....we could have been caught filming the other team in order to get an advantage. Imagine that embarrasment.

HAHA! Every team in the 70's did that, including the Raiders.

It was the 70's dude.....football players used steroids and baseball players used speed, it's what they did to get by until George Jung came onto the scene.

OMG HILARIOUS THREAD!!!!!1!!1

Is there seriously any fan-base in hockey that is more blindly homers than the Pitt fans? Even the so-called "knowledgeable" ones couldn't feel objectivity if it bit them in the ass.

Oh look...Another complaint from the "whining' Flyers/Rangers: CHERRY CRITICIZES CROSBY, SAYS HE SHOULD STOP BEING A WHINY LITTLE BITCH

Whoops no it isn't...it's just a knowledgeable commentator giving his opinion on the game. My mistake...

Even as a casual hockey fan, I'll never understand how the Penguins get such preferrential treatment or how big the rose colored glasses of all Pittsburgh fans can be...

I'm a Blue Jackets fan, so I pretty much just sit back and watch other teams kick my favorite team's ass every night, so this isn't me having an issue with the Pens, aside from them bringing to question the integrity of the game.

1. The penguins are the pussiest team in hockey. for 2 reasons. malkin and hid girlfriend.
2. The rangers are the best team in hockey. for 2 reasons. they're men, they block shots with their faces and 1/3 of the team scores over 20 goals.
3. I hate philly (clearly you know why), however i think the philly v. pitt matchup is gonna be nuts. First one to put crosbys head thru a wall wins a stuffed penguin...?

Gotta love the jealousy.

I suppose I would be jealous too. The penguins will be cup contenders for years all while having the number one and number two best players on planet earth.
and
The Steelers being a super bowl contender seemingly every single year. Yea, I'd be jealous too.

BTW Ryan Callahan cries more than any other player in the NHL, but he's on a "man" team so it's cool.

That's such a false, oversimplified argument against what everyone is arguing. Everything is automatically invalidated cause "duhhh everyone is jealous."

You think John Tortorella is bitching enough to be fined, because he's jealous? Do you think all the fans who watch the games (like myself) and see the double-standard (Penguins, I'm talking about), the dirty crap they do and then STILL see them have the audacity to whine about things on their end?

If you really think that, then you are just as blind of a homer as some of the other pens fan who post around here. But yea, keep telling yourself it's just jealousy.

Go back and see what the city of Boston has accomplished in the last 12 years.

Try again.

Can we please keep the Pittsburgh bashing on the sorry azz franchise that deserves it, the Pens, and not the greatest dynasty the NFL has ever had, my beloved Steelers of the 70's

That is all. Thank you and carry on.

Yes, this thread is about the Pens. I have no real animosity towards teh Steelers. Although I might have a slight bit of animosity towards you for being a Steelers fan, but that's an issue for another thread

That's because nobody gives a damn about Ryan Callahan and most hockey fans have never even heard of him.
