It was funny because I walked in with Hartnell and Jake and everyone recognized Hartnell and were calling out to him but no one knew who Jake was! I guess the hat really made a difference or no one really recognizes him.
So everyone apart from the old guys pretty much!

My best friend and I are sitting in section 243 and my friend gets a text from his uncle that hes sitting next to Claude Giroux and Hartsy. We call ******** and he swears up and down that Hartnel is sitting right next to him and G next to Hartnel and that pretty much the whole Flyers team is in his section. Section 236 Row 3, end zone right above the Lincoln Finnacial Field sign. At halftime we decide to go scope out it. As we make our way towards their section the first Flyer we see is Tye McGinn who is standing in line with a buddy waiting to buy beer. We decide to get in line behind him because we needed a beer anyway. No one what so ever recognizes that it is McGinn standing in line but us. He orders 5 beers and Eagles fans begin to gripe and yell at him because its taking so long to serve him and we just chuckle at the fact that its McGinn. As he leaves we compliment him on his solid play on the first line this year and he turns around and smirks and acknowledges us. Just as that takes place Brayden Schenn comes stumbling through the beer line following a smoke bomb of a blonde girl like a little puppy dog. Again NOONE recognizes who he is and we yell YEAH SCHENNER GET IT he turns around and starts laughing up and walks back up to his seat. As hes walking up to his section Max Talbot comes stumbling down the stairs clearly bombed and in a stooper and makes his way to the bathroom. We are in disbelief of what we are seeing. My buddy decides to take a piss while Im still in line waiting for our beers. Rinaldo then comes down the steps and finally people recognize him and are taking pictures with him. I see him make his way to the bathroom. My buddy comes out cracking up and begins to tell me how Rinaldo took a piss in the stall and was talking to one of his buddies in the next stall about how he loves when girls recognize him because hes a hockey player and how he was going to slay some blonde after the game. After the game we meet up with my buddies uncle and he told us that G, Hartsy, both Schenns, Read, Simmer, Coots, McGinn, Jakob, Talbot, and Rhino were all in their section and all drinking and carrying on ALOT. He said Hartnel ordered at least 60 beers for all the Flyers and finally bought him 2 for passing them down all night from the server. Read joked to G every time the Eagles got booed by the fans that it sounded like the Flyers power play. Read told a story about being ****ed up in a cab in center city and puking on the cab driver. They all subliminally joked to one another about how bad upper management is. G made a comment that they might win a game soon if they actually manage to play in the 3rd period and Read and Hartnel chime in and said yeah if we dont get lit up before that or blow it with 4 minutes left. Basically the Flyers locker room is a complete mess and disaster and the players are all treating it as a joke. I have pictures of McGinn, Talbot and Rinaldo to verify.

Well take some of those claims with a tiny grain of salt. But the entire team was, in fact, at the Cowboys game:

FWIW, Read was sitting directly behind me as well as Giroux and Hartnell. None of them were hammered or carrying on all that much. They were all wearing hats so people wouldn't recognize them. Why would they want to draw attention to themselves by carrying on? I already said Hartnell ordered beers for everyone including us so that was true. Read was pretty funny and joking around a lot and kept saying that since the guy on the Eagles who messed up currently sucks so much they should trade him lol. All of those other comments I didn't hear and there was no one closer to them in the entire stadium. That last comment from Read was actually because I asked him if the Flyers are going to win on Thursday because I'm going to the game and he said to me, "Yea we'll probably win the whole game and then blow it with 3 minutes left!" I thought it was pretty funny and nothing more. You've gotta be able to joke around about stuff when times are tough. I'm sure this is nothing out of the ordinary. To be clear, I didn't hear one thing about upper management as that is total BS. They would never say that stuff in public lol.

Can we block crossing broad from being posted on here? Kyle has literally no idea what he's doing anymore. It used to be a somewhat decent site to get some news from, but Kyle went bat **** crazy and is acting like TMZ-Philadelphia.

oh jeesh....the Flyers better just start winning b/c this stuff is just going to start getting worse and worse and become a self fulfilling prophesy of sorts. I'm sure there might be some kernals of truth to some of it but who knows the whole context. If they did talk about management it would be stupid of them but at the same time it wouldn't surprise me all that much with some players....not like they haven't done some stupid stuff like bringing in Bryz or maybe doing things they don't like. I mean everybody in their job complains about management from time to time and some of it may even be warranted. People are human. I mean rumor has it that some players are not happy with Berube taking over probably b/c he knows "where the bodies are buried" and can call out the players more easily. Holmgren seemed to have implied as much and Snider even alluded to it in some ways saying we are going to find out if we "overrated" players. With a new coach from the outside maybe that wouldn't be the case or as easily done...

My favorite post by Kyle was when he ripped Jason Babin (who is a clown) for tweeting about John Boehner and spelling it John Bowhner. The "E" key is right next to "W".

That Crossing Broad article is exactly how a whole lot of stupidity gets spread among the fanbase and garbage like Dry Island gets started, or players get run out of town for idiotic reasons.

I'm just glad to see them relaxing. Maybe it'll help.

What? Why aren't they bag skating until Thursday?

The Crossing Broad guy just comes across like a jealous little twit in that article. This is the kind of crap that the morons eat up though.

If the suck streak continues and it's time to find reasons for it, we need to brace ourselves. The media will trot out this crap again as proof that they're distracted. God forbid they don't use every single second they're awake to work on hockey, and spend their sleeping hours dreaming about how to get better at hockey.

It would be nice if the people and sites who cover the Flyers spent every waking minute finding ways to be better at covering and analyzing the Flyers, and spend their sleeping time dreaming about not resorting to TMZ garbage.

Irony at its finest. Lack of professionalism by the players, but ignore the fact that my "story" reads like a high school girl's gossip note.

My guess is that Claude was talking to some girl(s) and he was sharing text messages with the team because they were giggling about it lol. Simmonds is just imposing, not hugely muscular or anything. He just seemed like he was a bigger guy to me. Grossman just towered over everyone.

Did you get a chance to say what overrated, overpaid bums they all are who couldn't beat a midget team with their lacklustre play, and that they need to get their collective heads out of their anuses and win some ****ing games?

Yeah, I wouldn't have either.

Haha the thought never entered my mind in person. They were having a good time and I didn't want to ruin it or get thrown out. But they definitely suck right now. Hopefully they show up for Thursday

Crossing Broad (Kyle Scott) is basically the ****** version of TMZ.

He has zero integrity, and all he cares about is page hits.

The Flyers go to an Eagles game, and all of a sudden the Eagles can't score.
Coincidence?
I think not.

I really hope there is little to no truth on that crossing broad article. Some of the stuff is pretty funny and some of it pisses me off. (If true).
