Huh? I don't know about that. I live in Ottawa and attend all Flyer games here in full Flyer jear and have NEVER had more than someone boo and laugh. I have watched games throughout Canada and have never had an issue with the Flyer jersey on. In fact, it is commonplace to see numerous other teams jerseys in buildings, they get heckled, but NEVER to the point the previous poster claimed.
I know Philly has this thing about being "tough" and don't come to our city wearing the wrong colors, but really, it isn't gangland, it really shouldn't be "dangerous" to attend a game in Philly wearing the other teams jersey. Just as it shouldn't be "dangerous" to wear a Flyer jersey in another teams building.
This is just crazy.
