Sure he's the opponent but that's no reason to boo every time he touches the puck... by that logic they should boo every single person who touches the puck who isn't a Flyer. The only people who should get type of treatment are people who left on bad terms or at least people who left of their own free will aka free agency.

If a tree falls down in the forest and nobody is around to hear it, does James Neal still cross check it in the face? #AskNeal

@penguins #askneal what favorite memory have you robbed from one of the players you kneed to the head?

Coburn equals Sinisalo in games played for the Flyers tonight...

526, good for 25th all time, 9th amongst defensemen.

To be fair, Bruins fans do also participate.

I didn't say never boo him. If he scores or something sure, you boo him (even though when umberger scored 3 against the flyers fans threw hats, this was at home now). I would have no issue with that. To boo him every time he touches the puck is dumb.

Werth is a different situation. He turned down good money to go elsewhere. Obviously the pay was better but it's not like the Phillies were offering pennies on the dollar. Richards had no choice in what happened and by all reports was upset to leave. What Werth did is more boo worthy IMO. Sure richards didn't win here bit he captained the team that got the closest the Flyers have been to a cup in a long time, and he played an integral part in that run (took out krejci which was pivotal in the comeback, he lead the team in points heading into the finals and he helped shutdown the then PO scoring leader in Toews).

That #AskNeal is great.

My favourite so far went along the lines of:
"A black-eyed bean is just a regular bean that has been elbowed by Neal"

Can't find who wrote it now though....

Which Pens social media employee is going to get kneed in the head for thinking #AskNeal was a good idea?
Quote:
Carly ‏@nuclearuterus 6m

I love how the @Penguins just totally abandoned the #AskNeal endeavor without even making up a fake excuse.
So apparently this was like a thing originally started by the Penguins? What moron thought that was gonna go well?

#AskNeal, who did you enjoy cheap shotting more, Giroux or Couturier?
I mean seriously this guy has to be one of the most hated in the league right now, who thought this was a good idea?

The Pens live in their own little world, they probably had no idea that the whole league hates Neal haha

But... but... he's a Penguins player and they are all good Canadian boys...

As Don Cherry would say, "He's a good Canadian boy!"

I personally wouldnt boo either of them. They may not have been role models or model player.....WIDE RIGHT or anything but they never asked to be traded. They both landed eventually with a cup and thats great for them. I hold no grudges because they did win one and we havent, yet

Nope, you'll see plenty there today. It's a Flyers jersey not a Kings jersey I assume?
