Emrick wanted an out for conflicting broadcasts because he had commitments nationally and had other obligations including some other sports (lacrosse, IIRC). It is why Gene Hart was brought back into the fold, from radio to TV, for a brief period.
It was always unfortunate that they parted on bad terms. But I think it is a bit unprofessional at times how biased Emrick is against the Flyers.
