I've been to numerous Flyers games in New Jersey and, since moving up to NYC, I've been to Madison Square Garden a handful of times.
Whenever I go to games, I quietly watch and applaud good plays when necessary. This is true for both home and away. I don't engage fans of the other teams much; at the Wells Fargo Center I've had more than a few intelligent discussions and shared some beers with visiting fans, but never talked down to them or made trouble. Not once.
When I go to away games I'm similarly reserved. I wear my Flyers gear, but I don't celebrate much at all, let alone obnoxiously. I don't partake in chants or anything like that; I just mind my own business. Without fail, Jersey and Rangers fans have taken every opportunity to yell at me, curse at me, and attempt to instigate me, but I don't fire back, except once or twice when a simple statement that's fairly neutral usually shuts them up.
There are plenty of classless Philly fans, but there's plenty in all arenas.
