    Default Pirate Writer Dumps on Pens

    This guy is paid by the Pirates. What an imbicile! I can not believe someone wrote this. What a ****ing dip****.

    http://piratereport.com/page/blogs.d...o-Be-Done.html

    Like Bucs, Penguins Still Have Work to Be Done


    PITTSBURGH -- The Penguins are out the playoffs already c'mon, they lost to the eighth seed, really? but we knew that would happen.

    http://www.piratesreport.com/adminis...ail&blogID=284

    One local team did win this hockey season, though.

    Yep, the Pirates.

    Now that the Penguins have gone belly-up in the playoffs for the fourth time in five years in the Sidney Crosby era, maybe we'll hear less about how their ownership will turn around the Pirates in no time if given the chance.

    The fact is, despite every conceivable advantage from first or second overall choices in four consecutive drafts to the mother of all lottery picks to a league that operates with a salary cap to a pucks-mad fan base, the Penguins have been unable to dominate their own division let alone the entire league.

    Or did you know that, while the Pirates have gone 17 years without a sniff of .500, the Penguins have hoisted exactly one Stanley Cup in that period?

    Pure and simple, like the Pirates over the years, the Penguins have made mistakes in the draft and the open market. Lots of them.

    For instance, take the 2003 draft, in which the Penguins owned the No. 1 pick on the heels of a anorexic 65-point season. (Yes, Bubba, they were dog breath themselves not that long ago.) The golden rule states that you never, ever select a goaltender at the No. 1 pick, but the Penguins chose Marc-Andre Fleury, anyway. Here are some of players that they could have taken instead -- Eric Staal, Thomas Vanek, Jeff Carter, Zach Parise, Ryan Getzlaf, Mike Richards, Corey Perry, Shea Weber . . .

    Hey, maybe Bryan Bullington wasn't that bad, after all. Sorry, forget I wrote that.

    Here it is, five years after Crosby was drafted, and the guy still doesn't have a regular linemate that is in the same zip code as his talent level. Quick -- name the last legit 30-goal-scorer to be developed in the Penguins farm system.

    OK, 25 then.

    Uh, 20?

    God help the franchise if Sid the Kid goes down any time soon. Cart him off and the Penguins are the New York Rangers all of a sudden.

    I wouldn't wish that on even a Philadelphia Flyer let alone Crosby, who represents everything that is good about professional sports. I wouldn't wish that on any team owner let alone Mario Lemieux, a guy that only the devil could root against.

    It's just that, before people wish for the Penguins to step in and save the baseball team in this town, they should remember that the Penguins have to help themselves first.

    I didn't read the article, but Ladewski sucks. Haven't read a single thing the guy has written this season after seeing his early work in the offseason. He's one of those ******y guys who has a Hall of Fame vote for baseball and casts his ballot empty to make a statement. That's probably all you need to know about him.

    Wow, where to begin with that ****ing article. First and foremost, I gotta say I would take losing in the playoffs every year over finishing 10-20 games UNDER .500 EVERY ****ING YEAR, any day of the week.

    The Penguins have won 3 Cups and lost one championship in the past 20 years. The Pirates haven't been in a championship since Jimmy ****ing Carter was president.

    I would love to run into this imbecile in a bar sometime.

    This is still bugging me. This has to be the DUMBEST piece of literature I have EVER read. I went to the site because I was going to rip the guy a new *******, but apparently a lot of people already beat me to it, and I'm not going to waste my time registering for a site that I will never visit again.

    This just goes to show you how jealous and ****ed off Bob Nutting is about the Pens and what a low life penny pinching scumbag he is. I guess this is the Pirates so called way of getting back at the Pens for leaking the story about Mario buying the Pens. Ladewski is just another Yes man in that pathetic organization. Bob Nutting is an *******!

    That may be the stupidest thing I've ever read.

    He wants to point out taking Fluery over that list of players but merely 2 years ago the Buccos took Moskos over Weiters. I could go on...............

    Sad part is I think he actually believes what he wrote.

    well the damage control is on.....the link was pulled...this article was talked about all morning on 970 AM......The Pirates management and ownership are cheap calculated and flat out have zero credibility. **** flows down hill and Nutting is at the top of the Pirate's hill. Mario/Burkle have to be laughing their *** off if they read that joke of an article.

    If anyone thinks Pirate ownership is not controlling and had nothing to do with that article read the part of this link about half way down in which the former Pirate.com writer makes his comments. The former writer was fired for being objective(telling the truth) The Nuttings are scum.
