PITTSBURGH (93.7 The FAN) - You may not have seen it, but Flyers fans placed pictures of Sidney Crosby in the urinals of The Wells Fargo Center during Game 3 in the city of brotherly love and one Philadelphia columnist took them to task for their "stupid, sophomoric" behavior.

Philadelphia Inquirer and Philadelphia Daily News columnist Mike Sielski joined The Starkey and Mueller Show to talk about the critical column he wrote about Philly fans and their infatuation with Crosby.

"Lets face it guys, you know this as well as anybody, the Flyers have been chasing the Penguins and Crosby and Malkin for the better part of a decade now and I would venture to say that Sidney Crosby is probably the most hated opposing athlete right now in Philadelphia."

Mike went on to say that in fact, "Sidney Crosby is exactly the kind of player that they would love if he were on the Flyers."

As for their behavior towards Crosby, Mike said "They get so worked up and so worked up year after year and game after game and then there's Crosby and the Penguins sitting on the bench buffing their Stanley Cup rings."

But that's not where Sielski stopped, he went on to talk about the image Flyers fans have of themselves and how worked up they get over other fans being critical of their behavior.

"People in Philadelphia complain all the time about the image of the fans in this city and then they kind of make excuses when the behavior is acutally bad and I thought the Crosby uringal thing was just a dumb, you know really stupid, sophomoric kind of prank, the kind of thing that a meathead, high school jock would find funny."
