One day after San Jose center Logan Couture accused Sidney Crosby of cheating on faceoffs, Penguins fans are assailing the Shark with snark.
Twitter is abuzz with the hashtag #SidneyCrosbyCheats in response to Couture’s postgame comments following a Game 2 loss to the Penguins.
When asked about Crosby’s success on faceoffs, Couture said: “He cheats. He gets away with that. He’s Sidney Crosby.”
Pittsburghers seem to be laughing off the accusation rather than stewing about it.
When his alarm goes off, the snooze button allows him to sleep a few extra minutes, just because of who he is #SidneyCrosbyCheats— djr5001 Dan (@djr5001) June 2, 2016
#SidneyCrosbyCheats at Giant Eagle, they give him the discount even when he forgets his Advantage Card.— PJ Tasser (@ptasser) June 2, 2016
What a double-standard!
#SidneyCrosbyCheats at Sudoku and just draws a big number 5 on the whole puzzle— CAPITALS HILL (@CapitalsHill) June 2, 2016
I don’t think that’s how Sudoku works.
Sidney Crosby shoots pucks and the goalie lets them in, just because of who he is. #SidneyCrosbyCheats— John Payerchin (@JohnPayerchin) June 2, 2016
Well, that would explain the whole “best player in the world thing.”
I also think #SidneyCrosbyCheats because he wears skates while playing hockey, he uses a steak knife when eating a ribeye, and when he goes to movie theaters he just sets his phone on “vibrate” rather than completely off.
