If Sens fans are constantly reminded of the prominent role that Crosby holds as a Penguin, why shouldn’t they show their displeasure?
Furthermore, can someone explain how Crosby can be described as “mature” and “wise beyond his years,” but when criticism arrives in the simplest of forms en masse, he is referred to as a “boy?”
He isn’t a child, being pummelled by bullies sporting red, black and gold. He doesn’t require protection or leniency from critics, simply because he’s a gifted player under the age of 20.
To state so suggests a separate standard being created for the phenom—revered and worshipped, high atop a lofty perch free from negativity and critique. Something tells me that No. 87 would be the first person to vehemently disassociate from such a scenario.
