Bigger ice, different jersey… same nutbag.

Kyle Scott is the founder and editor of CrossingBroad.com. He works sans pants.
I can’t even defend him here. I mean, I want to…I just can’t.
He’s lucky he’s going against a pretty nameless US team
I hated, no wait, despised, Roman Cechmanek, but at least that dude let the puck hit him in the head and that was without a deflection or two first.
As if ….this is the first time this has happened. No. Words.
New look site, still same garbage material.
So, having a goalie who is afraid of the puck isn’t something that should be posted on a sports blog?
Kyle, just stop. Yeah the Flyers deserve to be bashed. From top to bottom. I hated this years team probably more than most. But its getting ridiculous. Do you actually watch any of the play? In this instance Bryz goes down into the butterfly, like a lot of goalies do, when the shot is taken. It is then deflected not once, but twice. He throws his hand up in an attempt to make the save, because it is incredibily hard to raise your body when you are in the process of going into the butterfly. You are just becoming another one of the media members that Bryz, rightfully, criticized with the same articles over and over and over. “The Phillies are old” “J-Roll screwed up!!” “Cliff Lee can’t do anything wrong EVER” “Bynum did something in a social setting” “Bryce Harper is a douche” “Something about the Nationals” “Desean Jackson posted a picture with rappers in Vegas, I have nothing of importance to add” “Jeff Carter played hockey” “Flyers players get crap for partying in the offseason, but I’ll write about it so I can get ad revenue” “Adam Aron tweeted something to market the team he owns” Write something original like you did before you decided to become a lazy writer like every other “journalist” in this city.
Did you miss the whole head ducking? He got out of the way of the puck, contrary to what he is supposed to do.
It may not have deflected twice, the second change of direction may have been because the puck was knuckling. He did not duck though. He went down into the butterfly and the puck changed direction and went over him. That is how every goalie will play that shot. The only difference here is he is the Russian goalie that plays for the Flyers, so we need to find a reason to bash him.
Maybe your definition of “ducking” is different from mine, but I clearly see his head sink down into his chest as his shoulders raise up. A good goalie going into the butterfly does not dip his head down, they remain tall while down because there job is to, you know, stop the puck! You are acting like his head never moved, yes he went into butterfly to stop the initial shot, he was remaining ‘tall’, then once the deflection was coming in high he ducked his head out of the way. He did the same thing this season for the Flyers. HE DUCKED!
This times 1000. This blog really used to be great. Original posts to go along with the TMZ stuff, no goofy agendas or other bullshit that comes along with the media in this city. And the tmz stuff before was actually fun and light hearted for the most part..Now it’s the only thing on the site, and it’s all just lazy, baseless, ignorant trash.
“Hey look, Bynum went to the mall, he must be a terrible scum bag. I certainly would’ve given back 17 mil if that were me! Now let’s write an article trashing some other city for being racist while I let my commenters hurl racially charged language and slurs at Bynum.”
“Hey, Bryz sucks, even though he played fine and was the only reason we were still alive after the first half of this season. He says goofy things so he’s a nut bag! Now excuse me while I go write an article bashing saber nerds and people who rely too much on hollow irrelevant stats, while I rely on hollow and irrelevant stats for Bryz because they support my agenda.”
This sites critique of the media used to be spot on because the site wasn’t actually a part of the media. Now Kyles just turned into another foaming at the mouth media douche who incites controversy for page hits, and he has the balls to call out the media for exactly that. Fuckin nimrod.
Damien is 1000% right. About the “duck” and about Kyle and about this team/season. Please. Shut up. This isn’t news.
“He throws his hand up in an attempt to make the save”
Or is he trying to protect his head from the puck? I think its the later, and I’ve seen too many examples of this over the years.
He throws his hand up in an attempt to make the save, because it is incredibily hard to raise your body when you are in the process of going into the butterfly.
I was unaware that one can not throw their arms in the air while keeping their head up…..Oh wait I just did it! His head clearly goes down at which point he has no clue where the puck is. In Kyle’s defense I noticed this throughout the year, most of the time the puck went over the net but he did give up a goal this way too… He must be concerned his fancy helmet will get scratched.
Do you fucking idiots realize that with a goalie mask and all the rest of the pads on, it’s incredibly hard to maneuver your hands above your head like that without lowering it? And a split second reaction to a puck deflected high is going to look like that alot…Jesus fucking Christ, you people and your witch hunts are why people think we’re nothing but a bunch of stupid, angry assholes.
A FEW WEEKS BACK MY BUDDY DUCKED OUT OF THE WAY OF KYLES GIRLS MUSTACHE
Those $1 hot dogs look so good
Ohhh god… Take that mask off, what an embarrassment.
I’m no puckhead, but it sure looked to me like Byrz bailed. Kinda laughable if you ask me. While what he did wasn’t an offense worthy of being thrown in the nearest gulag, that gives haters fresh ammunition to use in their quest to get him run out of town. Now, I’m not a Bryz hater (frankly speaking, he’s not worth getting upset over), but it’s increasingly obvious to me that the guy needs to leave and get that cliched fresh start somewhere else. Let’s face facts, kids, Bryz is not going to work out here, if he doesn’t get hit with the amnesty bullet this year, he’s damn sure going to get it between the eyes next year. I say, dump him now and save on all the drama that’s bound to make next season just as much a circus as this one was, if not more.
But again, what do we do if we amnesty Bryz? Hope mason just magically pulls his shit together? Is he really the answer because 6 meaningless starts out of his last 4 terrible seasons were decent?
Oh, I agree that the options behind Bryz aren’t all that great. Even a knucklehead like me could see that the problem with the Flyers was their substandard defense, hell, Jacques Plante or Patrick Roy would’ve failed if they were behind that motley crew of blueliners Holmgren put together. But I don’t see a scenario where Bryz makes this team any better with his play next season, if anything, I can’t imagine the whole damn team getting any better and another year out of the playoffs is not impossible. That said, why not start from scratch and give Mason the reins, something tells me that’s going to happen sooner or later.
Here’s Kyle Scott ducking out of the way of an informative, unbiased, article on his TMZ affiliate blog… stop writing about hockey man, because you don’t know enough to write about it. Please. It’s embarrassing. The best writing I’ve seen on this site in over a year came from Damien’s comment.
