I'm not complaining about every detail, I was arguing a point that when push comes to shove Philly gets down and dirty. I don't mind the fights, or clean checks. I don't like the dirty stuff, it takes away from the game.
This is all your opinion and message sending is a part of hockey too. The Flyers have always had an image of being a tough team and that will continue. If the teams get dirty, oh well. This is a man's sport and as long as players aren't getting seriously injured this will continue. I love watching the Flyers physical style of play and that includes the occasional dirty play.
