Hartnell's nickname in Pitt?

Ok I'm assuming it's "Fartsmell?" I'm surprised that nickname would bother him although I know all last year Flyers fan were referring to him as "Fartsmell" too along with plenty other pejoratives...

Even Leino was referred to as Jay Leno...now he's earned his legit name back.

Maybe this thread could be about opposing team's nicknames for players. I remember Denis Potvin was harassed by Rangers fans for years because he beat his wife supposedly.

Quote:
In recent years, winger Scott Hartnell has been a target of Pittsburgh's fans. He said they serenade him with a vulgar chant that rhymes with his last name.

"They make fun of my name out there. I'm not a big fan of it, but I have to go and battle through it," Hartnell said.

When we chant bad things about crosby he has 5 point games.

When they chant bad things about hartnell he gets angry and takes penalties.

didnt Hartnell sign a a jersey last year for a Pens fan that was wearing a Fartsmell jersey? or was that the year before last. I remember reading something along those lines.

Rangers fans also threw sugar packets at Bobby Clarke as well.

I'm sure Hartnell's haircut will be a hot topic for Steigy and Errey tonight.

I wonder if Steigerwald and Errey will laugh if Hartnell gets hurt like they did a couple of years ago.

Yeah it was a kid...he signed it as "Your pal Scott Fartsmell" or something like that. He also gave the kid his stick from the game.

Yeah I had heard about this story that's why I'm not sure why it bothers him since it's more a playful kid kind of jab which he seemed to acknowledge in a good sport kind of way by signing the jersey??

Now I can see him getting bothered by Scott Nohartnell etc....

BTW I will have to post pics of a pizza delivery car that I see daily when I head into work. The guy has his car decked out in flyers emblems with a big Crosby Sucks decal on the back window and a hanging little penguin on the trunk. It's pretty over the top...Like the earlier poster said...we say he sucks and he gets 3-5 point games and when they say our players suck they kind of do. Hopefully, Pronger's knee is up to speed tonight b/c the Pens tend to take him to the outside and skate around him...

He would have 3-5 point games against us whether we chanted or not. Don't stop the chant. As long as we chant he'll know there's nothing on earth he could possibly do to stop them. He could have a 10 point game for all I care I would just walk up to him and be like, "you still ****ing suck".



Also Pens fans have stupid nicknames for everything. They think they're all clever and witty over there. "Go home Flyers" is probably the lamest chant on the face of this planet.

Ha! I had a guy sitting behind me in Pittsburgh who spent half the game chanting that to me. I was mighty offended, I tell ya. Otherwise known as completely ignoring the bozo.

He had a couple of nicknames after he bit Letang but I think people in Pittsburgh are starting to forget about it.

Perhaps, they need to take a page from the great flyer fan base... "crosby sucks" (usually as he is lighting it up in your building) now there is originality!

I think my favorite Hartnell nickname from around here is "Not Smartnell." I forget who posted this, but I lol'ed the first time I saw it.

pretty much

Who cares what they call our players? It can't be any worse than the Crosby chant and subsequent filling of the scoresheet.

I can only imagine a conversation in the parking lot after the game between Crosby and one of our wonderful drunk fans after the game...

fan- "Hey Cindy! You Suck!"
Croz- "...But I just scored 2 goals and got 5 assists against you guys tonight, and sat the final 10 minutes..."
fan- "yeah.....yeah well you still suck! bahahahaha!"
Croz- *presents picture holding the Stanley Cup*
fan- "you got lucky, last year we...uhh...CROSBY SUCKS!"
Croz- *presents picture holding a gold medal*
fan- *unprovoked eagles chant*

And he wouldn't give a ****.

I could see the chant not being dumb if it was creative or bugged Crosby, but it definitely does neither and it's actually arguable that he plays better because of it so why ****ing do it? Telling Crosby that he sucks is just ****ing dumb. That's like trying to say that the sky is green.

You've got to be ****ing kidding me.

You think that something as unoriginal and dumb as "Crosby Sucks" is somehow a good idea while a traditional chant like "Go home Flyers" is the lamest chant on the face of this planet? Give me a ****ing break.

And that is why it's a really stupid chant.
