Penguins Fans Ruin Moment of Silence for Ed Snider by Being Dirty Yinzers

There are few more classless sports fan moves than disrespecting the honorary moment of silence. You can’t shut your fat mouth for 20seconds at worst? You just gotta make sure everyone knows you have something to say, and this is your time to say it, respect be damned?

Today’s culprits? Some. Fucking. Yinzers.

A couple of seconds in there you can hear someone yell, “Flyers Suck!” before of buncha yinz join in with “YEAH!” I get that all your city has is a shitty sandwich place and a number of bridges (and the band Rusted Root, so that’s cool), but you couldn’t go three seconds with your stupid mouths shut? “Yes, I agree that the Flyers suck. Let me raise my Coors Light in this moment of supposed respect and shout ‘YEAH’ so everyone knows I, too, am an asshole.”

It was a nice gesture by the Penguins organization, it’s just too bad Pens fans can’t be trusted to be respectful for the amount of time it takes to say their shitty city’s name.

    I have a moment of silence for snider every time the flyers are blacked out

    • Lil' Ant April 18, 2016 at 8:43 am

      The flyers had 2 moments of silence that last 2 games.
      Each ‘moment’ lasted 60 minutes of game time.
      They will never win another stanley cup.

  • Anger E April 14, 2016 at 9:28 am

    “and the band Rusted Root, so that’s cool”
    I hate you, Jim.

    • Johnny Feltersnatch April 14, 2016 at 11:14 am

      I wish we could send Jim on his way…..out of town.

    • Slowpoke Rodriguez April 14, 2016 at 11:46 am

      never was bothered by Jim’s writing until I read that…
      who the fuck cares about rusted root?

      • Diners, drive ins and GFY April 14, 2016 at 11:53 am

        Hates Primantis but liker Rusted Root?

        Maybe you would be happier having some overrated Genos with a side of even more overrated crab fries from Chickies and Thieves.

    Actually flyers have so many drunk fans it’s insane. For anyone from a fan base that pelted Santa Claus with ice balls, batteries at players and cheered an opponent’s potentially broken neck to call another fan base classless is a special kind of learning impaired. Flyers fans have an inferiority complex! The 40 years without a Stanley Cup? The zero Superbowl championships? The city-wide crime rate and filth? Come on! 1975!

    • Rangers Yankees Ny giants fan April 14, 2016 at 9:40 am

      Drunken Philadelphia sports fans also:

      Booed Donovan McNabb at the 1999 nfl draft
      Shot a Chicago Bulls fan leaving a Sixers vs Bulls game in 2012
      Killed a fan outside of Citizens Bank Park
      Vomited on a little girl during a Phillies game also at Citizens Bank Park
      But I know I know; everybody always picks on poor little innocent Philadelphia.

      • don't forget April 14, 2016 at 10:31 am

        Beat the hell out of a skirt Ranger fan and put it on Youtube for all to enjoy.

      • Slowpoke Rodriguez April 14, 2016 at 11:51 am

        After all, the Yankee fan base that gave us:

        -Someone who stabbed a Red Sox fan at the Chowder Pot III restaurant in Branford, Conn.

        -Someone who struck and killed a Red Sox fan with her car after a confrontation in Nashua, N.H.

        -Someone who threw a 5-inch hunting knife from the upper deck of Yankee Stadium, striking Angels first baseman Wally Joyner on the arm

        -Fans who spit and threw beer at the wife of Rangers pitcher Cliff Lee – possibly affecting the team’s subsequent unsuccessful attempt to sign the left-hander.

        -A vocal history of h o m o phobia

        -The need for a guide to “How to Survive the Bleacher Section at Yankee Stadium”

        Of course, we could go on and on.

        • Frankford and Dyre Tommy April 14, 2016 at 12:54 pm

          Come up here and say that to my face wise guys!

          • mayor of Colwyn April 14, 2016 at 2:34 pm

            don’t forget the loser Giants fan that got knocked out on the El platform after he got done running his mouth!! Go DELCO

    • Penguins fan obssessed with Philly sports April 14, 2016 at 9:40 am

      Not sure why I spend all my waking hours on Philly sports blogs

      • Penguins fan who didn't get into Pitt April 14, 2016 at 10:25 am

        Because I have a tiny penis and I am very insecure.

    • Get off a Philly blog April 14, 2016 at 9:47 am

      So were you too dumb to find a college in Pittsburgh? Or did you also recognize your city is a hell hole. Go get fucked

      • Howard Foreskin April 14, 2016 at 10:24 am

        Not smart enough for Carnegie-Mellon.
        Not athletic enough for Pitt.
        Not Catholic enough for Duquesne.
        Not HPV+ enough for Robert Morris.
        Not toothless enough for WVU.

      • you cant read April 14, 2016 at 10:50 am

        puke boy got his ass beat by people in the section. flyers suck guy got ‘yeahs’ and cheers.

        leaving a sixers game, or on a train in chester miles away. i guess that’s still leaving

        man who orchestrated the boo at the 99 draft is named Angelo, and is hated by many.

        or nyi fans cheering a crosby injury

        or that rich-valued Jets fan who sucker punched a woman at a football game

        or that steelers fan Andrew Robles who was arrested for punching a woman in the head

        or that steelers fan Tyler Matthys who was also arrested for punching another woman in the face

        that QB must set the standard for treating women

        or super steelers fan david grillo who smashed a beer can in another fans face, also arrested

        or that yankees fan who decided to run over a crowd of redsox fans

        just a tiny handful of ny’s and pitt’s better moments.. like all those around the nation.

        • Greg hardy har har April 16, 2016 at 10:53 pm

          Woah, woah, lay off the sucker punching a woman at a football game, if she was in the kitchen where she belonged, then said sucker punch would have never happened, but fuck the rest of them.

    • Pauly April 14, 2016 at 10:42 am

      I’m sorry, didn’t you guys cheer as Lundquist was writhing in the ice in pain after taking a stick to the eye? Or was it another game I was watching? It’s nice to know how much you obsess on Philly fans that you can rattle off all these incidents. I’m sure nothing like that has EVER happened in every other arena in the country. Sarcasm off.

    • Pens fan who goes to Temple is addicted to Felching April 14, 2016 at 10:49 am

      We also gave Mario Lemieux a standing ovation when he came back from cancer.

      But I see why you’d not want to mention that, since you have a half-assed fucktard mentality.

      Did you know the Pens were a team before Crosby showed up? Suck a dick and get out of our city, you parasite.

    • Call me "Ed" April 14, 2016 at 1:39 pm

      You do know that it wasn’t the REAL Santa Claus, don’t you, little boy?

    • Sloop April 14, 2016 at 5:47 pm

      I stopped reading when you brought up Santa. It proves you don’t know what you’re talking about.

  • K Shaw April 14, 2016 at 9:34 am

    “It was a nice gesture by the Penguins organization”. Jim, they did it at the other games too, it was the NHL’s idea, Pittsburgh had nothing to do with it.

    • Sloop April 14, 2016 at 5:48 pm

      But they would’ve done it anyway. Mario was fond of Ed. Still, their fans are trash.

      • Bitch gave me crab fries April 16, 2016 at 10:56 pm

        You guys are letting yourselves get trolled, stop replying to these dipshits, they know we know that other places suck shit as well, but who cares, I say embrace being the worlds shitbags and toughen up.

  • Dr. Marvin Monroe April 14, 2016 at 9:50 am

    But Crossing Broad was filled with anti-Semitic jokes about snider the day he died.

    How is this any different?

  • blue89 April 14, 2016 at 10:14 am

    It’s not a big deal. They were generally respectful except for a few drunks. I’m sure most of the people there were rolling their eyes at those subhumans for making them look bad.

    • Call me "Ed" April 14, 2016 at 1:42 pm

      All true… plus, it was Mike Milbury who yelled “Flyers suck!” in the first place.

  • Pashyunk Ave Tuxedo April 14, 2016 at 10:19 am

    C’mon Bro…Primanti’s ain’t nuttin like Primo’s. Me n Uncle Joe roll with The Diablo. Robbie E? C’mon bro , he’s a Medican

  • Amen April 14, 2016 at 10:43 am

    Rusted Root is legitimately one of the most trash bands of all time. That *one* song they have that everyone likes is utter drek.

    FUck Rusted Root.

  • JG April 14, 2016 at 10:57 am

    Pittsburgh is the New Jersey of Pennsylvania, so what do you expect?

  • Collegeville Capitals Superfan April 14, 2016 at 11:01 am

    No moment of silence tonight in DC. Caps fans will be cheering after all 6 goals we score. I’m headed down to 30th street to catch my train to the game tonight.
    Caps in 5. Flyers are a classless joke of an organization.

      Ovechkin is the AI of hockey. all stats and no rings

        At least AI made it out of the second round.

    • Flyer rob April 14, 2016 at 11:41 am

      Good buddy!
      Flyers top line defensively over the Caps’ head to head. What the Flyers need to do is get the Caps in the penalty box, which isn’t hard to do. Flyers had about 18 power plays in 4 games against them this year, Tom Wilson would an easy target to goad into a game misconduct, 5 minute major, and I bet that happens, possibly even a suspension.

      Flyers in 6

    • Call me "Ed" April 14, 2016 at 1:47 pm

      Pick yourself up one of those nifty “XVI” caps so you’ll have something to throw on the ice when Voracek puts 3 past Holtby.

  • MM April 14, 2016 at 11:11 am

    Pens fans are really feeling it this year. They’re thinking this is the year man! this is the year Sid gets his 2nd cup! Watching that game last night you can see how nervous the whole fanbase is, just waiting for the other shoe to drop. Nice original idea on the yellow shirts as well. Kyle wouldn’t even sell those ugly things. This collapse will be the most epic of all and send that franchise down the drain been circling for the past couple years.

  • pgh person in philly April 14, 2016 at 11:15 am

    So, i am pittsburgh native living in philly, and i have to tell you that when the flyers fans cheered lemieux when he came back from cancer, and when lemieux shook lindros’ hand in the line after the pens playoff loss to the flyers and told lindros that it was his turn, those are my two favorite memories of sportsmanship between the clubs. Also, i attended a game in pgh after tim kerr’s wife passed giving birth and there was a very long and heartfelt moment of silence.

    • Awful place April 14, 2016 at 11:18 am

      My favorite moment is when Kasparitis hit Lindros in the head and the Pittsburgh fans cheered his concussion. Classy.

  • Nova 96 April 14, 2016 at 12:35 pm

    Went to the Caps – Pens game last month in Pitt, the gentleman next to me alerted me that the bohs frum wilks-bahr were really changing their fortunes.

  • ScalpThePCs April 19, 2016 at 3:52 am

    Fuck Cindy and the the Pengwhines, but are we sure it Pittsburgh fan who did this? They were playing the Rangers, after all…

  • Nothing to see here April 19, 2016 at 5:06 am

    Before throwing stones, check the structural integrity of your own house.
