He went to a Flyers/Rangers game at MSG, what the hell did he expect? If you guys drove down and game to a Flyers/Rangers game at the Wachovia Center, you'd expect us to be hostile--okay, well not really with the corporate atmosphere, but still--and anyone with half a brain would expect you guys to be hostile towards us at MSG. It's part of the rivalry!

That is the biggest load of crap I have ever read. I am sure he was just sitting there doing nothing. I'd love to know what really happened.

Then you should see the guy that fell into the penalty box with Domi. Sued everyone and everything, and said it was very hard for him to sue the Flyers because he's such a fan yada yada yada. Not all of us are idiots like these guys.

hahaha I didn't realize that guy sued!!! I think every team has fans like that though.

honestly the story could check out in which case then its a shame no matter where you go. either way to get into a fight over sports teams is just mental.

other then that i dont have a problem with the guy except for the "makes you want to hate new yorkers line". from a third person perspective people in philly and ny can very easily be confused for each other.

In England, at football games, away fans aren't allowed to sit in the same sections as home fans. In fact that might just be the case throughout Europe. One would have to ask in this case how this man was identified as a Fliers fan.

Galatasaray fans hold up signs to visiting teams and supporters informing them: "Welcome to hell."

England fans were advised not to travel to Turkey for the recent international qualifier, in fact the Turkish authorities refused entry to the stadium to every foreigner.

Every major ground in England has CCTV, for the purpose of identifying "hooligans."

In other words, you have to expect violence, so the authorities and teams should do all they can to prevent it, but on the other hand, you have to be somewhat responsible for yourself. According to this guy's own story, he walked right into the trouble.

you punk. Ahh just jokin'. Anyway I'm not sure what this guy expected to happen. Hes at the 1st Flyer/Ranger game since the Lindros trade and should have known things woul dbe a little tense. Granted when you go to an away game especially if you have your teams jersey on you expect to get a little harrasment. You know the usual blank sucks, go home, this and that. I've been at Isles/Rangers games to many times and have had only 1 problem when we had about 15 guys behide Richter up in the green seats and Turgeon scored his 50 goal in OT. A few hammer heads came over yelling this and that luckily there some security around and everything stayed pretty quiet. Other than that I always wear my jersey and as long as you're not much of an ahole and remember you're in the other teams arena you shouldn't have a problem. Sure you can go back and forth w/ the other fans and cheer when youre team scores or lands a big hit you can do some yelling just don't run around everytime they get a goal looking for trouble you should be ok.

The assailants didn't flee, he ate them.

Edge 10-15-2003 12:36 PM

i dunno personally i dont care what the sport or what city, sports is a game and the fact that people get into fights over it really highlights why i think humans as a collective species are pretty {expletive} stupid.

There probably is intelligent life out there somewhere, but why the hell would anyone want to visit this planet.

Hell even i wouldnt mind leaving it if i could =)

what a joke

Edge 10-15-2003 05:27 PM

oh gimme a break.
i say the same thing to myself when i go back to ny, and i grew up there!

Cmon NY is a wonderful city but lets not kid ourselves about the..... "personality" the city has. NY is a very abbrassive city. Like that uncle you love. He's fun, he's bright but then it's time to go home because he can be too overbearing.

somehow i knew someone was gonna pick a 9/11 line and shift the focus
