I know we are still in football season, but being from Pittsburgh and a diehard Penguins fan, some things I can let go, but they're are some things that require attention. I distinctly remember reading about how Philadelphia Flyer fans and Washington Capital fans would constantly accuse Sidney Crosby of being soft...a cry baby..basically what my avatar says. Every fan is entitled to their own opinion, which is fine. Personally, I believe the truth to be jealousy. No one, including me thought that my Penguins were going to beat the Red Wings in the Stanley Cup finals last year. But, they did. They got they're 3rd Stanley Cup, and did it by kicking Flyer and Capital ASS in the process. So, when one's team is defeated, the natural reaction is to accuse of cheating.. say the other team got lucky..anything BUT give credit where credit is due and understand that the better team won.
In last years series with the Capitals, Ovechkin was accused of being dirty. He blatantly tried to take Gonchar out, I believe in game 4 it was, and here's my question. Alex is so damn talented, why do you have to resort to cheating...to on purpose try to injure another player? It's nothing to see every Capitals game..to go the the box score, and barring a shutout by the opponent, see "Ovechkin (Goal)" every time. And to make matters worse, the guy who Ovechkin pissed off this time went after the coward, but all of Alex's little supporters(also known as jockstraps) jumped in to take the fight away from their franchise player. Alex needs to learn a little from Gretzky. If I recall, Gretzky lead the league in scoring many years, but also won a few gentlemenly awards as well. He and Mario Lemieux played the game the way it should be played. Malkin won the scoring title last year, you don't see him intentionally injuring other players. Eventually, when no one suspects it, someone is going to line up that little pansy and knock him into next week. Then all his little Capital jockstraps will cry to the league saying this isn't right...why did this happen?...and all they'll have to do is realize that Alex the _ _ _HOLE brought all of this on himself.
Hockey is a phsyical sport. If you want to be a punk ass and try to injure someone, it's going to come back to haunt you. Last year, the Penguins were smart, because it was in the playoffs. They went about getting even the right way by sending "The Jockstaps" home early and to visually show them how to win a Stanley Cup. Alex has a lot of talent, but needs to grow the f@#k up if he wants to be still playing hockey in April.
