Chicago Hockey Legend

BURNS

Jay Cutler Jersey [VIDEO]

9/24/2012 1:40 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

092412-chris-chelios-launch-v3Chicago Bears QB Jay Cutler might officially be the most hated man in the Windy City -- because last night, one of Chicago's most storied sports legends turned his back on the guy ... TORCHING Cutler's jersey inside a bar.

The video was shot inside Stanley's Kitchen and Tap in Downtown Chicago -- showing Chicago Blackhawks legend Chris Chelios lighting Jay's jersey on fire while some hot chick dangles it from her fingers.

One source inside the bar tells us Chris lit the jersey then said, Cutler's "nothing but a bitch."

FYI -- Cutler has been under heavy fire in Chicago from Bears fans who think he's not just a terrible QB ... but a cancer in the locker room who's bringing down the team.

Cutler's performance on Sunday didn't do much to win over his critics -- Jay had a very underwhelming performance in the Bears victory over the Rams ... throwing an interception and ZERO touchdowns.

We reached out to Chelios for comment -- so far, no word back.

For those of you not familiar with Chris Chelios , he was the most hated player in the NHL during his career. Even his own team-mates didn't like him. He also effectively ended the career of Brian Propp of the Philadelphia Flyers (the Flyer's best player at the time) giving a vicious elbow to Propp's head, knocking him unconscious. Go to youtube to see the play.Chelios also played on Team USA one year in the Olympics and when the american team was eliminated, Chelios was one of 4 players that trashed their hotel room, breaking every piece of furniture there. Chiris Chelios also threatened violence toward the commissioner of the NHL when there was a strike several years back. Finally, 2 people that worked in Chelios' restaurant were murdered there a couple years back (perhaps it's a shady place? It wouldn't surprise me). Chris Chelios is the definition of a BITCH. In the words of Brian Propp (and agreed to by several NHL players past a present) " Chris Chelios is a terrible human being."

You reached out to Chelios but not Cutler! The story is more about Cutler.

the guy didn't kill americans, he threw a few INTs last week against the packers. get over it. chelios actually took a free agent contract to go play with the hated DETROIT RED WINGS of all teams, for more money and nothing else. i wonder if chris remembers how much he was hated here in chicago after he did that?

Just when you think Cheli couldn't be any more desperate for attention... The real story here is that this 50-something-year-old washed up hockey player spends most of his Sunday nights at a bar in Chicago with a bunch of twentysomethings while his wife and daughters are at home in Michigan. Jay may be a bitch, but Cheli is a famewh*re and pathetic husband and father

This story is such bs. All the dislike of Cutler is on the national level, not in Chicago. I hear people defending him on the radio all of the time. As others said before, Chelios is a total douche and people here can't stand him. He certainly doesn't speak for all Chicago Bears fans. What an a**.

Chelios is a legend. He really fit in with THE DETROIT RED WINGS. I watched him play for most of my life. He still played in the NHL when he was 47 years old. Love the guy, one of my favorites.

Hey As a Blackhawk fan, Chelio has had his jersey burnt a few time. Chelio was a good player, but he's no one to be saying anything about losers. The Hawks did nothing when he was playing for them. So, HEY CHRIS< LEAVE CUTLER ALONE.. and look in the mirror ********...

In Dec. 2009 Chris Chelios was arrested for drunk driving (probably leaving the bar you see here). You can watch the arrest on youtube. Type in :Video of Chris Chelios Arrest.

Stop making **** up, TMZ. If anyone in Chicago thinks this it's a very small minority. Most people here know that even though Cutler is far from perfect he's a big upgrade from every other QB we've had recently.

So he didn't do good during a football game? So what? I'm sure he isn't the only quarterback that has ever been off his game. People are acting like he killed someone. Chill out.

Being that I am Bears fan from Chicago I can tell you that the only accurate part of this article is that it contains words.

No one in Chicago hates or even dislikes Cutler, while Chris Chelios is seen as a disgrace. Maybe do some fact checking before posting these obnoxious articles.

Bit you guys did your job, you post to another dumbass article to get hits, and you got me. So cheers!

I was at the cubs game yesterday and was sitting 3 rows behind Chelios. The funny thing is that Chelios couldn't have watched the bears game from his seats at Wrigley. Maybe it was a few too many beers with at the Cubs game.
