Crosby has never once removed his helmet for a fight. He barely ever squares off for a fight, except for maybe a second against Niskanen, he basically rushes in as fast as he can. Every fight he's been in he's worn his visor, and started many of them, if not all.
In all of Crosby's fights listed on http://www.hockeyfights.com/players/5905
, in no fight does an opposing player take off his helmet. I'm not going to hold my breath waiting for murphydump to provide evidence of Crosby refusing to take off his helmet when an opponent has already done so.
I'm not sure what's so hard to understand here. The OP was knocking Subban for the exact same things that Crosby does. That was my point! How can you sit there and call Subban out for all those things, when our own star player does the exact same things?
Subban jumps guys in a fight before they're ready. So has Sid.
Subban fights with a visor. So does Sid.
Subban fights with his helmet on. So does Sid.
Subban is cheap. Sid has been cheap too at times.
So it's okay for Sid to do all those things, but Subban, geez, "take off your helmet!!", "don't fight with a visor!", etc etc.
I dislike Subban like the next guy, but I'm not going to sit here and pretend that Subban is the only guy that does that when our own 87 is just as much to blame.
