Well, how many women actually understand the sport?

oh wait.... (RUNS FOR COVER)

Well, she's entitled to her opinion.

Appears to me that she's just trying to make a name for herself by being over the top and no better way than to say Crosby sucks or Crosby rules.

Plenty of sportswriters feel the need to say something controversial. We see it here often enough.

On the other hand, I don't think it's very mature to dislike an 18-year-old because he displays a little immature behavior now and then. That's the nature of the beast.

She is just looking for ratings so she can keep her job for another week.

You're very lucky, Bowser. The Steelers won the Super Bowl, so I'm in a good mood tonight. I'm going to give you a pass -- just this once. :twisted:

I will not forgive a woman who's career is to know sports. :oops: shame on you Hicks/witch! Don't come sniffing around Sid when he's winning the Calder! Or whne Canada does not get IT done in
Turin.

2nd or 3rd rule of the media, build up to tear down!

She's an Idiot

Postby Mad City Mike on Mon Feb 06, 2006 9:47 am

She follows up here anti Sid screed with this:

Here’s a new theory on Ray Emery: If he was allowed to be himself without constant grief — that would include getting tattoos, dying his hair and choosing designs for his mask — wouldn’t it stand to reason his confidence would return in short order? The first year in any career is a hypersensitive time. It will do more harm than good if Ray is scolded after every attempt to express his character.


So she hates Sid for being himself, but wants Emery to be allowed to be himself. Yeah, right. Whatever :roll: .

She's just mad that Sid refused to put it in her 5 hole. Can't say that I blame him. :shock:
That piece is more letter to the editor quality than a supposedly professional written column. Can't believe she's paid money for that.

Yeah, my first thought was "who is she to criticize anybody? She can barely do her own job." And then she did show her true colors with remarks about Emery. Hypocrite.

She'll change her tune in four years when Sid leads Canada to the Olympic Gold Medal. (Am I the first to predict this? :lol: )

The time will come when Crosby won’t be able to rely on his delicate age as a cure-all excuse for his transgressions. One hopes that day, and his eventual emotional maturity, arrives swiftly. Surely if we’re subjected to another 20 years of this, the Crosmaniacs will spin themselves into the ground.


Well golly...how profound is that? "The time will come when Crosby won’t be able to rely on his delicate age" The delicate age that he is now because he hasn't matured past 18 yet. I'm surprised that a woman wouldn't recognise this; unless she herself is immature. :P
This woman gives women in the sports media a bad name.

Some people, seriously. That woman obviously doesn't know hockey, or know anything about Sidney. I hate people like that, the people that just keep bashing Sidney. He freakin' saved the Penguins this year, without him, who knows how much worse we could be doing? Well, I don't care what she says, I think Sidney's great!!

She just gives the media a bad name period. Pittsburgh natives should be used to it with the sports columnists that "work" in this town.

You're right of course, but I thought being female might give her the edge on seeing that Sid is still a kid. And that he'll grow up pretty quickly. Guess I was giving her too much credit.

yea, congrats on getting your superbly well written article in on time to your editor.... what exactly is this article putting forth? what is it informing me of? I'm a journalism major, rule numero uno in writing: Remain neutral on issues and REPORT THE NEWS...... No one asked this woman of her opinion and I can only guess why; dont try to be an enthusiast if you cant get your facts straight, just because your canadian doesnt mean youre an expert on the sport.
