It is no secret that hockey players will often have gripes with fans of their rival NHL team. However, Sidney Crosby of the Pittsburgh Penguins was just put on blast for how far his hatred for Flyers fans goes.

Sidney Crosby has made no bones historically about his distaste for Philadelphia Flyers fans. He was always met with jeers from the crowd and proceeded to play as hard as he could. As a result of this determination, Crosby is currently the all-time leader in goals, assists, and points against the team.

"Pick a category, any category - Sidney Crosby is the all-time leader in NHL history in goals, assists and points against the Flyers 😎"




Yet, his anger for the fans does not stop at obliterating their team on the ice. In a recent interview, American entrepreneur and jeweler Larry Flowers shared details about his talk with the player on how deep this runs.

«We were playing in Philly. It was a huge game. It wasn't a playoff game, but it was huge. Playoff implications. And this is probably going back now like 10 years or so, and they're on the bus, and they're pulling into the Wells Fargo Center, and there's a million Flyers fans watching the Pittsburgh Penguins team pull into the barn, and they're all throwing things, or throwing eggs at the bus, and Sid goes, we're out golfing, and he's telling me this story, and he says, ‘You know, Flowers, I look to my left, and people are going at me, and they're throwing all this sh*t, and I looked over to my left, and I saw this kid on his dad's shoulder,' And the kid must have been no older than, like, five years old. And the kid just had two little fingers up in the air, and he was like, f**k you, f**k you,' and he looked over, and he said, ‘I hate these f**king fans.' He really, genuinely hates the city of Philadelphia.»



With a clear hatred for the city of Philadelphia, it is no surprise that Crosby has been fueled in his games against the Flyers by the fans' boos. With another expected season ahead for the veteran Penguin, he will almost certainly have another chance to show the team how he feels about them on the ice.

"Sidney Crosby, fueled by Philadelphia 'boos'."
