I'm not saying this as a Penguins fan and/or Crosby apologist, but in general I think burning or destroying an item shows the emotionally maturity of a 3 month old Capuchin monkey.

If you are truly disgusted with either Crosby or the fact that as Flyers fan you are tainting your fandom by keeping a Crosby jersey in the same closet as a Flyers jersey, why not donate it/sell it/give it to a friend, etc. I am sure you could make some kids day if you dropped it by a local children's hospital.

What the #@#@#@#@'s the difference between Crosby's emotional maturity, and a 3 month old Capuchin monkey? In general I think there the same, therefore the destroying of the aformentioned Jersey is warranted

Your first illogically fallacy is trying to legitimize the burning of a jersey by using my original example of emotional maturity and comparing it to Crosby. Assuming you believe that Crosby's emotional maturity is equivalent to that of a Capuchin's is understood.

However, is Crosby burning jersey's? No. Therefore, one can not legitimize or warrant the destroying of the jersey by saying that Crosby is acting like a child.

Your second fallacy is essentially the straw-man fallacy. Crosby had nothing to do with the original comment. He only appears in jersey form. I would say the same thing about Crosby had he expressed a desire to burn a Jagr jersey and post the video on youtube. I expressed the same sentiment to a fellow Pens fan in July of last year when he was insistent upon burning a Talbot jersey after he became a Flyer.

I understand your main issue is the fact that you feel that Crosby is an emotionally immature, whiny d-bag. I get that. He's 24 years old with no wife and no kids. You are probably right about his emotionally maturity.

Down 3 games to 0 with the way the Pens have played this series I am way past being upset. The third period (besides being a disgrace) was downright laughable.

From a purely rational standpoint, it makes no sense to me to destroy something of value when much more good could be realized. In general, people are highly irrational though. Just another good example of that I guess.

Yes, this series has clearly shown the Flyers fans to be the ones who are 'feeble-minded'.

Either way, I think burning a jersey is stupid...if you're going to destroy it, at least do something creative. Or better yet, just give it to the salvation army (or some related charity).

But, it is his property, so he gets to do what he likes, whether we agree or not.

I can agree with everything except the bold part.

There's no need to insult an entire base simply because you are upset that your team is doing badly.

I agree that the OP should probably donate or sell the Crosby jersey, there are plenty that would love to have it.

Has this video been posted yet? I'm looking forward to seeing it. I know a couple buddies of mine burned their Dany Heatley jerseys and they were pretty entertaining, so I hope this one is just as good

If the Flyers lose this series, he might burn his Flyers jerseys instead.
