Video: Jeremy Roenick is tired of the Sidney Crosby roller coaster

Oct 12, 2011, 9:30 PM EDT

Like many other people in the hockey world, Jeremy Roenick is tired of all the Sidney Crosby concussion updates.

Jeremy Roenick hasn’t been shy about praising Sidney Crosby. He dropped quite a few jaws last season when he shared his belief that Crosby is “way more talented” than Wayne Gretzky, although those comments were probably taken out of context in many cases.

Regardless – or maybe because of – Roenick’s high opinion of Crosby, he admitted to some serious fatigue about the roller coaster of updates regarding Sid the Kid’s health. Whether we like it or not, Crosby’s health will be an issue for a long time, but it’s hard to blame Roenick for feeling beaten down by the drama.

      What, are you 7 – who calls people “wussy?” If you’re going to go calling people names, maybe start with the media for reporting every Sid so much as burps. If I were him, I’d be doing everything that he’s done so far. Even aside from hockey, the guy is young and has his entire life in front of him; he has all the reason in the world to be extremely cautious.

    Does he realize that things like this become stories because of the new 24 hour digital media cycle that employ legions of analysts like himself? You don’t wanna talk about it JR? Go home.

    Crybaby<Jagr Go Flyers! Best my butt! He will never make it as long as the great ones like Grezkey!

      You’re right, Sid is not Jagr…..yet. And like it or not, he is one of the two best in the league right now.

      But have fun with our over-the-hill s****y seconds. Jagr’s only success was with the Penguins. He never won another Art Ross after the Pens and had one great season in ’06 after. He will not be the player that FINALLY gets you the Cup after coming up short so many times. And the always classy Flyers fans rooting for Jagr…..it just doesn’t feel right, as much as all of you hated him for so long.

      And Gretzky has a “t” in it. Show some respect.

        you sound very defensive about the Flyers taking your “over the hill sloppy seconds”.

    First they bitched because there were no updates. Now they bitch because there are too many updates. I guess the media / commentators are paid to bitch – it makes better entertainment !

    Is it just me or does hating Crosby for no reason go hand in hand with terrible grammar?
