Pensblog a bit out of line

Postby Sabres_Fan on Fri May 29, 2009 4:06 am

At the top of the page... They take a major shot at Vlad Konstantinov being disabled by the car accident.... I can see all the crybaby Crosby.... MAF spinning like a ballerina... Pavel D/billy Dafoe... its all in good fun but u kinda have to leave tragedy alone.

That was very "Flyer Fanish" IMO.

I didn't care for it, but I think it's more Family Guy-ish than Philly-ish.

I don' t find it that offensive, its not like they were saying that they are glad he was injured.

My sense of humor is very edgy - so I'm not going to spend too much time ripping someone else - but I tend to stay away from paralysis jokes. I don't like them on shows like Family Guy and I didn't like it on the Pensblog. But it doesn't enrage me to the point where I'm going to write them a nasty e-mail or stop reading. Humor will always offend someone and you have to accept that occasionally it might be you.

Even to bring him up is classless. The joke is not even funny and is in extremely bad taste. Good thing they don't represent the Pens fans in general.

Are their rules on what people we are and aren't allowed to make fun of in society? It was a somewhat funny joke about a guy that cant stand up.

It's the same thing that they used to do with the Dany Heatley car crash. They've jumped the shark anyway. tPB was great for a good year and a half and then became a little too narcissistic and a victim of their own success.

It's a classless joke. There are just some things you don't joke about.

Yeah, it's gotten played out. They haven't kept it fresh, just jobbing around anymore.

Since I don't watch either of these shows, I'm curious... what real, paralyzed people have these shows made fun of?

Probably Christopher Reeves, but I'm sure this post wasn't referring to EXACTLY paralyzed people, rather making light of similar situations, well after the fact (ie not "too soon?").
