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.
First, how many times have you been to Flyers games in Philly? This stuff happens as I've witnessed it. Second, it's possible that Ottawa is a little more laid back. Third, I don't consider Ottawa to be a rival.
