As for my original point, I do have a bit of a clue as to what I’m talking about, as it is my job to look into matters of this nature. What narrow minded, small brained jabber heads like yourself tend to do is ignore what’s best in a situation like this and selfishly say…’yeah he has no idea what he’s talking about. Sid’s going to be just fine.” Really? What medical expertise are you relying on to determine this? The facts are head injuries are a total crapshoot. None of the so called ‘experts’ have any idea what’s ailing Sid. What is truly in his best interest is not playing again. But as we all know, the selfish, narrow view of a yinzer is not to think of others, but to think only of what satisfies themselves.
The Kid is hurt and he’s hurt real bad. He’s better off not playing and getting on with the rest of his life before he gets (maybe) back on the ice only to suffer a catastrophic blow to his noggin, leaving him a vegetable the rest of his life.
Look at Boston’s Marc Savard or St. Louis’s David Perron, both of whom began the year as question marks due to nagging concussion issues. Kieth Primeau, Marc Savard, Steve Moore, Dean Chynoweth, Eric Lindros…the list is growing and won’t stop here.
Face the music Penguins fans, Sid’s career is all but over. If, IF he plays again, it won’t take long for one hit to end what could have been a great career. That is why he should stop playing now and count his blessings, as many of you so called Pens fans should. Stop putting your selfish needs in front of the mans health. There are thousands of players that would kill to have the career he did.
First, I don’t understand what “all but over” means. Really.
Second, I don’t think there’s a Pens fan alive who hasn’t internally wondered if Sidney’s career is over. John has valid points, but is, in my opinion, being a bit ridiculous in stating with absolute authority that Sid’s career is “all but over.” We don’t want it to be. But we fret it might be. At least I do. And I’ve decided to extrapolate that to the Pens fan universe, so suck it.
Third, I haven’t heard much selfishness at all from Pens fans. I’ve heard “Get better, Sid, for as long as it takes” and I’ve heard, “Maybe we need to look at a future without Sid,” and I’ve heard, “Sidney Crosby is not the Pittsburgh Penguins,” and I’ve heard, “Maybe we shouldn’t extend a new contract to Sid,” but I haven’t heard, “SIDNEY BETTER COME BACK TO HOCKEY AND I DON’T CARE IF THAT MEANS HE HAS TO BE A VEGETABLE AT 30 YEARS OLD. I HAVE NEEDS, DAMN IT.”
Fourth, “Narrow minded, small-brained jabber heads” is the new “PittGirl Cult of Personality Rose-Colored Glasses.”
Fifth, while my husband probably does, because he listens to The Fan all the time, I have no idea who John Phillips is. Off to the Google! Update: Found him on Twitter!
P.S. News hit this weekend that Sid went to a specialist in California to get his neck looked at and there it was discovered that he also injured his neck at some point, but that the injury is fully healed. The reason Sid got his neck checked is because his friend TOM BRADY told him to.
Dear Tom Brady, one good deed for our Captain does not erase years and years of hate, you Ugg-wearing, chin-dimpled succubusian concubinical cheating asshole.
P.P.S. Football makes me a violent potty-mouth. Sorry, Dad.
