Connor McDavid Called Brandon Manning “Classless” and Claimed He Hurt Him on Purpose Last Year

Oilers superstar and apparent whiner Connor McDavid did his best Sidney Crosby and showed his lady parts inside the Villanova locker room when he criticized Brandon Manning, who broke McDavid’s collarbone last year, calling him “classless” and claiming that Manning injured him on purpose. Here’s McDavid:

“You know what, I did all I could defending him last year in the media. I didn’t want to make a big deal saying he did it on purpose. He wanted to make some comments today about what went on last year and I thought it was one of the classless things I’ve ever seen on the ice. He said some things and our guys responded accordingly. We can put the whole “He did it on purpose” thing to rest, because what he said out there confirmed that. It shows what kind of guy he is, how he doesn’t step up and fight some of our guys.”

Mr. Manning?

“I think anybody who knows me or who has played with or against me along the road here, knows that I am not that kind of player. I am not out there intentionally trying to hurt people. I’m a guy who plays the game hard and I take pride in that. I think going back to last year, it was a total accident, I mean, there were three players involved and there was never any intention on hurting anyone.”

It’s a classic he said-she said.

McDavid and Manning had words during the game:

Score one for Manning and the good guys. The Flyers won, 6-5.

        1. It’s pretty dark down here in mom’s basement sometimes. But the medication seems to be helping right miss Robin? Hello? Is this thing on?

  1. The greatest game of the season, a truly awesome hockey game and all this article says “the Flyers won”. Jesus fucking Christ Kyle, really?

  2. And once again, the 300lb tub of goo aka Anthony Gargano is slobbering all over Brian Baldinger’s Johnson, and talking EAGLES EAGLES EAGLES.

    1. Am I the only one who can’t listen to Baldinger? I literally turn it off immediately. I actually liked the morning show with Marks and Anthony, even with MCW who sounds like she never worked in radio before. But Baldinger is ear cancer man, so brutal.

  3. I was at the game last night and even I could see after 8 beers that McDavid and his teammates were going at Manning from the start. Manning and his teammates were smart not to give them what they wanted. Crazy night down there . Old time hockey ? and it would be nice if 97.5 took a break from some Eagles talk to speak about this game . So boring hearing about the Eagles and their classless organization everyday

  4. “It shows what kind of guy he is, how he doesn’t step up and fight some of our guys.” Hey McSissy pants, if you’re that bothered by it, take
    off your girly underwear, and FIGHT him YOURSELF. Or just STFU. You’re the one with the problem, so do something about it. Why should Manning get beat up by Lucic, when he can just beat up you. And, before anyone yells about it, I know that’s not how hockey works, but still, what a siss.

  5. here comes the crybaby portion of the flyers fan base who want to complain about sports talk radio not talking about the flyers. if you dont want to hear them talk about the same stuff every day, then dont listen. its that simple. you guys sounds like kyle every time a villanova win does not get any coverage.

  6. And I was right…..tuned into 97.5 and nothing but Eagles talk. Unbelievably boring talk too. Gargano slobbering all over Wentz as usual, ripping Ertz, and sucking off Baldy.

    1. does someone have a gun to your head forcing you to listen to it? no? okay, then just put something else on. you complain like a woman.

  7. Look out Poundtown pistachio guy is monitoring everyone’s comments now. Fuck off loser.

        1. yo bo! primo’s has the best knuckle sandwich! comes with fresh muttzarella and roasted peppers on a delicious liscio roll! swat! swat! you know what i mean!

  8. The morning show is barely listenable. Why are both sports radio morning hosts just blatant, unfunny, fat losers with bad haircuts and high cholesterol? The Myrtetus Tom Brokaw thing is old, and his stupid kid’s monopoly on bullshit car commercials ruins every commercial break. I honestly blame Evan Myrtetus as the reason Fletcher Cox is playing horribly.

  9. Connie McDavid says Manning won’t fight any of our guys. Whatever happened to fighting him yourself you crybaby crosby waannabe.
