It's one thing to despise a player -- that's fine, and particularly understandable given how Crosby has tormented the Flyers. But, seriously, there should be an element of human decency that factors into the situation. Have some respect for him as a person, what he went through, and what he means to the league. The crowd should've given Crosby a nice round of applause when his name was mentioned for the first time and then reverted to form and commenced the vociferous booing the second time.

The "Crosby Sucks" chant remains the lamest in hockey, but I know there's no changing it.
If Pronger comes back next year by some miracle, I am sure the Pittsburgh fans will applaud him .

There is a reason Crosby doesn't have the same kind of respect Lemieux did, and Philly isnt the only city that feels that way.
