ROOT says we cheated in GM 2 win

Specifically Jagr.

Here's the link from Crossing Broad and a summary (I believe the broadcast of it is in there):

Quote:
Lost in the shuffle of the Flyers destroying their unfortunate foes this weekend was an (albeit minor) controversy that arose when ex-Penguin Jaromir Jagr scored the Flyers’ game-winning goal on Friday night. The controversy existed solely in the minds of ROOT Sports broadcasters Paul Steigerwald and Bob Errey, who thought that Jagr had an illegal stick. Behold:
(link to broadcast video)
That’s quite a bit of prattling based on purely circumstantial evidence. What’s more, though, is that the ROOT Sports folks - who opined that Jagr may have switched back to a legal stick after scoring the goal - failed to notice that Jags had actually broken his stick on the play, forcing him to - get this - pick up a new one:
(link to broadcast video)
See, broken (it's not completely obvious, but the stick broke in two on the shot).

I didn't do a very good job of including video links and such - if any Mod wants to make it more readable, please feel free to edit

Jagr could have blown on the puck and MAF still would have missed it.

2 things

1. Could we stop with the posting of Kyle's site? While i read it, it's almost as bad as those gossip magazines... He needs to try to write about the stuff with just a bit less bias showing.. And the profanities could go as well

2. They so mad

Agreed but I can't find another site that summarizes the ROOT segment - he has the footage and puts it into a package.

I would have rather had better options as well

Even Pittsburgh fans hate Steigerwald and Errey. Nothing to see here.

I don't think it was lost in the shuffle so much as lost because everyone ignored this idiotic commentary.

Meh, it's a blog, not the NYT. That's why we read it, for the bias. If I want an unbiased piece about a team I'll look to a national outlet, not a Flyers one.

Undoubtedly - however, if there was a general thread about Pens (their team, org, fans and announcers) being whiners...this would have had a place there.

Something to fill the time while all of us wait to see what happens to Neal and Asham

just so you guys know, jagr has been known to use an illegal stick at times. He used it on the capitals, so they knew about it and would call him out while he played on the rangers. They did it numerous times, trying to catch jagr using an illegal stick. It was funny seeing refs measuring jagr's stick. I can't find a video of it. Penalty if caught is only 2 minutes so to me it's not that big of a deal of players use them once in awhile, it's quite genius.

edit: found a thread from 2005 on it:
http://hfboards.hockeysfuture.com/sh...d.php?t=194904

edit2: LOL that topic was from the crazy game where it went to 15 rounds in the shootout and marik malek scores this crazy goal:



bottom line, let's pretend this thread never exists

I watched the replay on root too just for a laugh. Had no clue it would be so hilarious. I spit my soda out when he said that.

Well I already thought these two were idiots. I didn't need any more proof, but that is ridiculously bad. You know some Pens fans likely believe it to be true and combined with the Briere offsides, their excuses will be plentiful on these boards this summer.

I like how they act like theres no way he could have spun around and shot the puck along the ice unless there was a 90 degree curve on his stick, like he just whipped it top shelf or something.

I heard a UFO commandeered by Holmgren came down and laser beamed MAF in his eyes on the Jagr goal....

No TV broadcast team is more loathed by home fans than Steigerwald and Errey

They called him out on it earlier when Jagr got the 2 goals in the game we lost in Philadelphia.

I actually thought that was hilarious. People are too sensitive. I mean the guy died in 1918, c'mon. This may be the single best thing I've heard come out of their mouths.
