This is like the front page of a blog some 14 year old Flyer fan would make. Yeah I get it's a snarky tabloid, but they make the New York Post look subtle.

They're a tabloid magazine! They don't have time for silly things like common sense or...math!

Flyers beat writers are quite bad. This is just dumb. They are just trying to sell newspapers.

Pretty unprofessional if you ask me. You're meaning to tell me they are actually selling that paper to their public tomorrow?

I'd be embarrassed if my newspaper sold THAT tomorrow. That's something my high school newspaper sells, not my city paper sells.

I don't know what's more sad - that a newspaper thinks this is something that will HELP them sell papers or that they might be right.

The paper cover and the t-shirts. I don't have a problem with either. But the people getting a partial over these things like they are some of the wittiest things they've ever seen? Wow.

I smile at these things the same way my 5 year old giggles when he farts. Doesn't make it new or inventive. Just makes them look like a 5 year old.

Eh so are ours... Nobody knows how to be a journalist anymore. Just sensationalism to appease the masses with very little substance in between.

God that's pathetic.

As someone who has journalistic experience writing for a town newspaper, seeing garbage like this actually being published makes me sick. It's something that a 12 year old mainboard mouthbreather would create. How the **** do these people have jobs? Saddest thing is that these are adults creating this *********, not kids.

Just when I think Philly cannot become any more of a joke....

* Why get your panties in a twist over this? It's like getting outraged over a NY Post headline. There's serious journalism, there's journalism that takes itself too seriously and there's stuff that ultimately is shallow but captures the zeitgeist of the community. It has a place, too, and the target audience is not Penguins fans, so the paper doesn't give a **** what we think. Actually, outrage on our part can only help to sell more copies of the paper.

* Obviously it's a poor photoshop, but sometimes these things are intentionally rough to call attention to the fact that it's an illustration ... if it's a seamless, perfect fake, then more attention is spent with people asking "Did Crosby ever pose in a lion costume?" and not on "OMG, did you see how the paper made fun of the captain of the other team?"

* Given the Twitter exchange posted in this thread and the number of journalists I know who are satisfied with childish puns and who think empty wordplay actually is clever, I doubt it was intentional, but ... if you think it through, this would work as a rebuttal to the stupid "Wizard of Cros" nickname that's thrown about every now and then. Of course, I'm 99-percent sure that wasn't the intent here.

It's official...there is no longer a line between amateur blogger and professional journalist. If you can't do anything else in life I guess you either work at McDonald's or become a sports writer. It's probably a good thing these people don't actually hold down jobs that are important in the grand scheme of things.

It happens with every fan base, but the majority of Flyers fans I've ever met do fit in that category unfortunately.

You have to remember that the people they're trying to get to buy their paper are the same ones that chant "Crosby sucks" even when he's lighting them up for 2+2. Not a lot of synaptic activity there. Have to keep the bar low.

Don't they also chant that when they aren't even playing the Pens?
