Never mind, wizard of oz I'm guessing.
Yeah, wizard of oz, but in what relation? What was the cowardly act?

It was stupid when Chicago did it, this is probably the worst photoshop I've ever seen. It isn't clever and it insults the intelligence of anyone that looks at it.

Do you expect Flyers fans & media to be? Elementary school humor is what cracks them up, fart jokes, etc.

Their t-shirt slogans at games are probably the worst in the league. I remember way back when they had the "Why not us?" crap and now they have something else that is very childish about Sid saying he doesn't like the Flyers.

I want to hope that this is put up in the Pens dressing room with every other media clipping about the Pens and quotes on the board with the coach not having to say a single word and just letting that do the talking to get the Pens to come back and win 4 straight.

I really want to hope for that. But with not even 1 redeemable game this series, I highly doubt it.

They can brag this year, but next year...Pens better make damn sure that they have nothing to be cocky about.

Yeah, it does .

Oh for the love of all things hockey, let the Pens come back and win this in 7. The hilarity would be phenomenal.

If they do, I'll track down a paper copy of this rag and frame it.

Couldn't even get the current logo on the helmet right...classless

Seriously though, this is what Philly fans live for. They are like rabid animals and the best they can do is make stupid photoshops with Crosby in diapers, Crosby with a pacifier, Crosby in high heeled skates, etc. Then they keep up the childish acts by continuing to call him Cindy Crysby and whatnot.

As much as I would love to see it backfire and the Pens rip off 4 straight to bury the Pens, it sadly won't happen and Philly fans will be relentless until October.

To quote emptynetter: "I'm pretty sure @DNFlyers doesn't realize how big of a hornets nest he just poked his finger into."

Dejan exchanged some words with someone from the paper on twitter, here is most of it...

@Dejan_Kovavevic
Quote:
Someone at Philadelphia Daily News thought this front page tomorrow provides a service to their readers: http://twitpic.com/9b3puc #Pens #Flyers (its the news cover)
@DNFlyers
Quote:
@Dejan_Kovacevic Is this coming from a homer columnist (http://*******/I1sHTy) who got blasted in his team's locker room last Thursday?
@Dejan_Kovavevic:
Quote:
@DNFlyers Beg pardon? You mean "homer" who wrote this? http://*******/IZyXwV ... Don't know you, Frank. Wouldn't presume you designed cover.

@DNFlyers Moreover, if I'm a "homer," and you bring up #Pens blasting me last Thursday, how do those two things dovetail?
@DNFlyers:
Quote:
@Dejan_Kovacevic Not getting into war on here. Just saying I enjoyed your 180 this week. Unprofessional? We were trying to have fun with it.
@Dejan_Kovavevic:
Quote:
@DNFlyers Here, Frank, is OUR sports cover tomorrow. http://pic.twitter.com/gKxUS4gc Oh, and I have column PRAISING Jaromir Jagr for picking #Flyers.

@DNFlyers I did the same 180 the #Pens did. Height of absurdity to stick to a forecast that blows up right in front of you. You know that.

@DNFlyers Bottom line: I don't know you, you don't know me. I've known Tim Panaccio for years. I hope we can shake hands at arena tomorrow.

I find this classless to be quite honest...I mean, I understand rivalry and the playoffs on all that...but for god sakes have some respect for yourselves and the sport. That is just sad...

They either used an outdated helmet or a helmet that doesn't exist

Crosby dressed as a lion sells papers better than their own team one game away from sweeping rivals? I mean, this is one of those things I get (major PR and more hits), but I don't get (why not your own team on the cover?)

Surely some type of subtle, veiled concussion reference there, right?

thats what i said to him. Why not make a cover about Couturier emerging as a shutdown and offensive force in the playoffs against the likely Hart winner in malkin? They need gimmicks and stupid photoshops to be interested? Good hockey interests me.

I guess the Wizard of Oz theme is fitting, because anytime a Flyer gets touched they lay on the ice like someone dropped a house on them.

Best part is if we were up 3-0 and one of our papers had some photoshop on the cover, it would already be on the main board as more bs against us.
