This past year, you would be lucky to find 50 flyer fans in the arean for any of their games, and they were barely noticable, you had to really look to notice them. The only game I noticed opposing fans at all was one game this past year, Montreal, and even that game I bet there were no more that 100 - 150 fans.
I hear ya Jaded.

You remember the late 70's?? There must have been say 1k Flyer fans that came in buses, for each of their games here. All siting together. Sounded like 5k.

I remember one game at the Civic arena, Flyers ended up scoring 10 goals. And probably after the 5th goal, the Flyer fans were doing the chant of, "1, 2, 3, 4, 5, WE WANT 6". All the way up to 10 goals by the end of the game. It was great for them, haha, incredibly awful as a young Pen's fan.
