Chris Therien gets called out, and responds...

Postby shafnutz05 on Mon May 07, 2012 8:17 am

Apparently Chris Therien (Flyers radio color guy) was being Tweeted by a whole group of people for his blatant hypocrisy after the Giroux headshot last night. During the Pens series, he was on a nonstop tirade against Crosby for his antics on the ice, and was extremely critical of Neal for headhunting on Giroux. Yet, he was completely silent after Giroux's cheapshot last night, and even suggested it was clean. His response?

What has Giroux been up to? I haven't been able to watch any of the series so far.

Reminisen....remanisca....reminiscen......does it remind you of the Hobey Baker comment we're all familiar with? Or not as bad as that one?

this is about 50 times worse. and i'm not exaggerating. the 2 comments aren't even close to comparable.

i'd like to see this get some traction on puck daddy.

After being anointed best player in the NHL after last series and applauded for his cool and calm leadership after Crosby went berzerk in that series, Giroux turned into the frustrated madman last night and went after Zubrus. Looks like he's just another player today.

Yeah, a joke about an old hockey player that not one living person has seen play is distasteful, but to make light of the Jerry Sandusky stuff when dozens of people that are still quite young were molested? It's not even close.

Not quite sure why it's necessary to compare the comments.

Dude should lose his job over this. This is worse than all the Jeremy Lin stuff that cost people their jobs.

making a bad joke involving the circumstances in which someone died like 100 years ago is just dumb.

Making light of a situation where God knows how many children were molested... A wound that isn't close to being closed for Penn state, the country, sports in general, and most importantly the victims of the abuse... That is extremely mean spirited. Plus it was typed and submitted, so he can't really use the same "words that came out of my mouth" defense. This is absolutely disgusting on every conceivable level.

"contrite" isn't exactly the word i'd use to describe his follow up tweets.

I don't necessarily like the "so and so should be fired" argument. But I'll say this. He should be on his knees apologizing right now. If he doesn't do that then yes, he should be fired.

Between this guy alienating himself from anyone the city who went to PSU, Giroux's suspension, and Bryce Harper stealing home, the emotions should be pretty high in Philly...

COMCAST will probably give him a raise for that Sandusky tweet.
He epitomizes the city of Philly, their dbag fans and entire organization.
