The beat goes on and on and ...

When asked to explain Flyers’ fans disdain for Sidney Crosby, Glen explained that Crosby’s appearance is a major contributing factor.

“He does have that expression that looks like he’s always going to cry,” Macnow said. “It’s a Tony Romo, Eli Manning kind of whiny-crybaby-hate-the-face kind of guy, and as much as you guys admire Sidney Crosby and those cups and all that, I believe even you would admit — the man is known to take a dive.”

S O S I'd a victory, but I'd love to see Flower, Evgeni, and Sid dominate.

When ever anyone mentions Crosby diving, I used to be quick to point out that Crosby was first given the label of a diver after having a tooth chipped by an uncalled high stick because he showed the broken pieces of tooth to the ref. Then, he went on to win the game in OT. In any other sport,.he would be praised for his toughness. In hockey he's labelled a diving crybaby.


Nowadays, I just ignore it

I think Forseberg chirped him first if I recall then he whined about it to the media. I think you're right, that and the Hatcher high stick really didn't endear Sid to the Flyer faithful. I love it.

Crosby dived his first few 2 seasons. I wasn't to keen on him then. But now-a-days he draws penalties by out working his oppenents until they are forced to take a penalty. No one works harder than Sid.

This guy is just stiring the pot.

Though last game he did go down easy a few times when players sticks got around his feet. But it was hard tro tell he actually dove.

i don't think crosby was ever a "diver". he embellished, and still does. but never "dove". i think the list of actual divers in the NHL is pretty small.

I enjoy the video from the MTL fan made of Bruins (mainly or maybe only Marchand) diving. It was spliced together with the Bruins press conference complaining about MTL diving. Good stuff. Now that is an actual diver...they even got Marchand on tape saying "I was trying to draw a 5".

I'm one of the biggest eli manning haters out there. Never thought he looked like he was going to cry. He has looked like he was trying to combine words to form thoughts, but not like he was going to cry. Crosby seems to look pretty normal. Romo definitely looks like he is going to cry sometimes.

Thats a perfectly fine reason to dislike someone. Thats why I don't like Phil Kessel. Well one of the reasons. One of the many reasons.

All 3 of those guys are in Philly's division and beat them on a regular basis. The radio host has to find something to hate them.

Actually, I get what he means. There are just some people that have a face that you just want to go up and punch. There was someone I worked with that was like that. Nice person. But for some reason, when I looked at them, I just wanted to punch them. If he wore a ski mask, I'd probably find hanging out with him enjoyable.

And I get along with everyone.

I think what he meant to say was, "He's good and does not play on my team and lives on the wrong side of the state."

Sid earned the whining rep early in his career - the diving stuff, I think they just lump that in there because they don't have much else to say.

LOL such morons. The more i hear flyers fans talk about crosby it makes me laugh how pathetic and stupid they are. They are so ignorant its hilarious

crosby maybe took a few dives early in his career but not nearly as many as people state hes taken. IF i didnt know any better listening to a flyers fan i would assume he dives once a game. Nothing will change their short sided pathetic view of crosby but its just so funny how they hate him so much when hes done nothing that resembles a dive or crying for a long time.

In the last 2-3 years i cant even remember watching a game and going wow crosby stop crying to the ref. I am so tired of hearing people say hes a cry baby and blah blah all the time. He has done nothing resembling any of this stuff for a long time

I don't like prust because he is either a total diver, or weak enough to get knocked loopy by one punch from Jordan Staal

I still remember last year during the playoffs, I was listening to the one game on XM (I think Game 3) where Sid fought Giroux, and a ton of fights occurred, and the Philly feed was on, and the Philly color guy just bashed and cried about Crosby because of the fight. And even later in the game, anythign that happened, even if Crosby was nowhere near the action, it was all Crosby's fault. He was even saying how someone should just go hit him in the head again and put him out of the game for good.

It's amazing the butthurt they have flowing over there.

I think one needs to watch that Marchand video to see what a diver is.
