I hope Emery is suspended and off this team eventually and Holtby gets the shutout.
I'm already pissed off by the team but jumping a guy like Holtby that has no interest in fighting, is far below him in skill, and has by no means ever done anything unlikeable is just disgusting and intolerable.
Every single fan base and broadcasters are laughing at how awful the Flyers are with some of the worst contracts, you honestly don't see it ? Really ?
You wrote it's in the flyers dna to be the laughing stock of the league , which implies we've been terrible for a long time. Yes we ****ing suck now, but have been extremely competitive for a long time therefore it is not in our dna to suck.
Typical **** going around now, about how dirty the Flyers are. Outside of Emery nothing was dirty but OK.
Instead of trying to win or not getting shutout the Flyers seemed to have more interest in winning fights and starting scrums then actually playing hockey. Beyond that Emery jumped a player that didn't deserve it and our own announcers are supporting it.
We don't deserve the stigma as a fan base, but don't act like the team isn't being pathetic right now.
Problem is that is the way a very large portion of the Flyers fandom views hockey and maybe even more of a problem the way the bulk of the organization views hockey. When Ed Snider talks about the team not needing a culture change, that's the culture that he holds to.
