i don't actually care what the "league" thinks...............Been a fan since day one 1967, folks around the league back then and during the cup years laughed at the Flyers too.........I love it ! What are the flyers on whole really known for ? Toughness !The Flyers feed on that reputation my friend .
But that doesn't work like it did in the 70's. Skill and team toughness wins now. Cup years were tight teams that were tough and skilled, this team is neither. You would not of preferred team come out hitting hard and putting up 4 goals to try and get some confidence to pull out of this mess.
You are one of the senior members here, how can you be happy with the direction this team is heading in ?
i'd like to listen to the Washington feed of the brawl.
were they flipping out?
Not really. Just Laughlin repeating over and over how Emery was going to have the book thrown at him and then one of their other guys (not Beninati) saying how Schenn suckerpunched the guy he fought. Pretty much what you'd expect from the Capitals' feed.
Except our own announcers supported it, our fans at the arena were cheering it, even a few fans on here are supporting it, and the Flyers culture as a whole still has the BSB era ingrained in them as if it's comparable to modern hockey.
That is why the rest of the league thinks the fans are nothing but brutes and the team is nothing but goons. That and apparently we can't do anything but fight right now successfully.
All I said was the Flyers don't deserved to b called dirty cause Emery is an idiot. Fans cheering and the announcers don't have much to do with the on ice play which is what's being called dirty.
Why are they waiting to play now? 2nd period was a no go for some reason.
