Re: Crosbyâs Accusation Against Chara Another Low Point For The Face Of The NHL

My my an agent no less, must be a secret agent 00 00, shaken but not stirred. Retardded comment, he must be looking for some more money certainly not any more clients. Booby Orr was hit harder than that on a good night. Certainly this is an example of 21st technologies negatives. Damien Cox sold some more "support" from the zombies of loyal readers. Yikes. Hockey is going the way of the NBA if this is truly the agents point of view, if not a 90s "bling bling" of that generation's paparatesi.
Sarcasm: Crosby lost his game cause he was picked on by the Bs. The Pens lost four straight for Crosby was not super. What explains Malkin then? Iginla? Norris trophy candidate Letang? Brooks Orpik? et al. NONSENSE!
In response to SanDogBrewin's comment:
"Well, Crosby’s not even doing the complaining himself, leaving his agent, Pat Brisson, to be his mouthpiece. As Damien Cox of the Toronto Star passed along on Friday, “Sidney Crosby’s agent is convinced Zdeno Chara of the Bruins intentionally punched Crosby where he had broken his jaw in Game 1. Nasty.”
"But in super slow-motion, and with some sort of mega zoom, Crosby and his agent were convinced that Chara had purposefully taken the time to carefully target Crosby’s exposed jaw with a direct jab in the middle of a scrum. And so they gathered the video and sent it along to TSN, which was happy to “report” on the wretched assault on hockey’s golden boy. (TSN’s Darren Dreger actually took Chara aside to show him the video. Chara is in the middle of playing for the Stanley Cup.)"
While the Zapruder-esque slow-motion footage provided by TSN looks damning for Chara, the video at regular speed (uploaded to YouTube by user @dafoomie) of the “incident” shows it for it is: nothing."
Way to go Dafoomie!
Crosby did sort of refer to the play in question after the game.
“They’re letting a lot go out there, and the more it gets like that, the more it’s going to escalate,” Crosby said of the referees, who penalized him for interference as well as slashing in Game 1. “You can only control and channel that stuff so much. You keep letting guys do that stuff, you’re just going to push the envelope. That’s something we obviously want to stay away from, but it’s kind of a natural thing when it gets like that.”
Crosby hiding behind his agent now. What a Doosh!
