I started following the Flyers at the beginning of the next season after the disaster season.

That was the joke. Woof started liking the orange and black in '74...one of the few times we've actually won something (I was still 13 years away from being born).

Hahah! They're the last to pick! I've always had a soft spot for ANA in my heart and DET is sort of a rival for 'em. Still the main reason being the fact I love tough 'n rough stuff on ice - Redwings brings none of that! I could very well be cheering for some random team right now if Riley never fought his way up all the way from ECHL to NHL.

Yea I think when I first joined though, there was an age thread and I remember being astonished that I was the youngest here (at the time, I think I was just 16 turning 17).

Im a junior in college and just turned 20 in September. Im a youngin.


So yea I guess I was 16 when I joined.

Oh yeah, go Flyers!
Coincidentally, I found the mobile site last night. So, if you were last, I was next to last. Doh!

No, Flyer fans are required to hate their team, the GM, the coach and half the players, win or lose....

Tim P. has a column regarding the stick infractions...

http://www.csnphilly.com/11/11/10/Fl...633&feedID=704

Quote:
When you think of “regular” offenders – guys on the Flyers who take a lot of penalties, you probably think Scott Hartnell is the worst offender.

He’s not.

Actually, Jeff Carter -- yeah, Carter -- leads the Flyers with seven stick infractions, followed by Danny Briere (six) and then Braydon Coburn (five).

Hartnell? He has two.

“I can’t catch a … break this year,” Carter said. “I don’t think I had this many penalty minutes all year last season. I just got to be careful with my stick. Make sure it is not dangling around and catching guys in useless situations.

“I have to be wiser with my stick. We have had a lot of stick calls. We know. It’s something we have to work on.”

A rule change came into effect a few seasons ago where a player getting four minutes for a double high-sticking is counted as one penalty in the “official” book-keeping stats by the league.

In the Flyers' overtime loss at Washington on Sunday, Chris Pronger got a double minor for high-sticking. It appears incorrectly in the final box score as two penalties. According to Elias Spots Bureau, that has since been changed at the league’s book-keeping level to a single four minute penalty for high-sticking.

We checked the revised game sheet and sure enough, it was changed to a single, four-minute high-stick.

Interestingly, Briere feels a need to use his stick once in a while.

“I agree that its one thing we have to improve, myself included,” Briere said. “It’s something I want to make a better effort to avoid. Especially, after that suspension.

“But at the same time, I feel at times that [stick] is what has kept other players honest, too. If they take advantage, I will have to pay a price. But I understand there is a fine line where you also have to be in control of your stick. There are good times and bad times. I think this season, we have taken way too many in that department."

Clearly, "Dr. Hook" was Briere's hockey idol.

I am old enough to be your mother, LOL! I was almost 12 when I switched over to the Flyers!

It always amazes me how many of you weren't even born when the Broad Street bullies were around! Oh how much you missed!
