Breaking news: Flyers fans don’t like Sidney Crosby

Apr 18, 2012, 7:21 PM EDT

Considering the fact that Philadelphia Flyers fans have been chanting “Crosby sucks” for years, you’d think Sidney Crosby would be aware of the dislike. In fact, when asked about that rather stunning “Cowardly Penguin” cover, the Pittsburgh Penguins captain said it was one of the nicer things they’ve called him. Well, just in case there was any vagueness, the staff at the Wells Fargo Center is handing out these T-shirts:

Groundbreaking stuff, huh?

Personally, I might have gone with “We didn’t like you first” or something like that. Feel free to propose your own (family-friendly) alternative shirt ideas in the comments, too.

    Hey Jerbear, how about you keep in mind that your weak team and your girly captain took all the class out of this series…. So shut your stupid little comments and watch as a team of real men from Philly own your weak little team… We are done with you and your second-rate city’s crying

    “Groundbreaking stuff, huh?” – Perhaps we should have all the facts before getting sarcastic. The origin of the shirt stems from an interview Crosby gave after the abomination that was game three… He was asked why he pushed Voracek’s glove when he went to pick it up, and the response was “I don’t like anyone on their team,” and when he was asked WHY he doesn’t like anyone on the Flyers, his response was “I don’t like any of the guys on their team.”

    The shirt is making fun of Crosby, not stating the obvious that the Flyers don’t like the Pens.

    There’s a guy on the glass with a ‘Crosby’s OB-GYN’ shirt.

    Now that’s classy.
