Mike Comrie got scratched again. You know, the million-heir that moved here with his new wife to take a new job with the Pens in a new arena. Back in September, we wrote about how Comrie was going to love the Burgh because “Pittsburgh has some of the most loyal sports fans in the world.” Now, only two months later, he is facing the opposite extreme. Pens fans are tearing the guy apart.
Despite the rabid fans in town, the newlyweds seem to be enjoying Pittsburgh overall… with exception to Hilary’s recently confessed boredom:
And even though Mike Comrie was the one to score the very first goal in the Consol Energy Center, 81 seconds into the game, he hasn’t been able to meet the expectations of Pens fans. After digging a bit deeper into some of the frustrations the fans have, we couldn’t ignore the intense animosity towards this guy:
Megdawg817 – Remember when I said how much I fucking hate Mike Comrie when we signed him & never stopped hating him? Welcome to my bandwagon.
kristianaaaaaa – remember that time mike comrie was a help to the pens in the regular season? yeah me niether
Jagrmeister – Found another glitch in NHL11. Mike Comrie scored.
HockeyJoePHT – I’d say the honeymoon is over for Mike Comrie in Pittsburgh. Hopefully the honeymoon is still on for him with Hillary Duff.
believeinfleury – I really hate mike comrie
DeniedByFleury – I hate Mike Comrie. #whatmakesmeayinzer
withlove23x – Mike Comrie scratched again? OH THIS JUST BREAKS MY HEART. Lmfao, sure 😛
Yeah, we know, it’s boring to hear a bunch of “loyal” sports fans rip into players on their own team the way they are ripping into Mike Comrie. But it just comes with the territory of losing. And this city hates to lose.
Maybe the loyalty Pittsburgh has for its sports teams is limited to the Steelers. Even after all the scandals, Big Ben didn’t attract as much disdain. Jeff Reed on the other hand, that’s a completely different story:
StaceyLeigh6387 – Ahh so happy the Pittsburgh Steelers got rid of Jeff Reed, i truly hate him, because what he has done!
tangerbabii58 – hahaha good bye Jeff Reed. take your “haters gonna hate” shirt with you.
sandiegopj – Yes Jeff, we hate you, but not b/c we’re haters. It’s b/c you not only miss kicks, but are a GIANT DOUCHE!
goaligoski – yes Jeff Reed, “haters hate.” I hate you and I’m gonna keep hating you, you ass.
ColinCurry6 – I hate you jeff reed
infielders3 – I hate jeff reed
gdwessel – Jeff Reed: I hate you. So. Much. GTFO the team.
shortdawg713 – I HATE YOU JEFF REED!!!!!! I HATE YOU!!!!!!!
branDAWG494L – Out of all the kickers in the NFL. I hate Jeff Reed the most. His legs are so fat. They piss me off.
Now it’s time for you to unleash your anger and frustration, Pittsburgh. Who do you hate more? Think carefully, you can only pick one…
Who does Pittsburgh hate more?
Jeff Reed or Mike Comrie?
For the record, we don’t hate either of these guys. We’re poking fun at the sports fans who hate them.
