Those Flyer fans are all-inclusive when it comes to death threats. Three generations shall burn for this.
“The most terrifying fact about the universe is not that it is hostile, but that it is indifferent. If we can come to terms with this indifference and accept the challenges of life within the boundaries of death, our existence as a species can have genuine meaning and fulfillment. However vast the darkness, we must supply our own light.” - Stanley Kubrick
It's not like the Flygirls have done anything special with him in the line up, sans for last night's shorty.
Just as Jaded-Fan mentioned, he's way too important to the team for them not to be affected by this.
I can see the Flyers trying to rally with their backs against the wall but as long as the Devils forecheck keeps buzzing, I think this may get ugly.
Flyer fans don't believe you. I've tried to explain to them over the years that Philadelphia doesn't always sell out and they need to stop the believing that Philadelphia is anywhere near the pro hockey market Pittsburgh is (History with Pro Hockey, area-wide interest, TV Ratings etc...) despite being more than twice the size. During the 2009 run I had the Philly broadcasts on DVD and they had plenty of seats available.
i work with a couple girls from right around philly. them and their families have zero interest in hockey or the flyuers. their unpromted response was on their fans was "they're a lot of white trash"
I saw some of the death threats on twitter, are people really that stupid to post that crap. All it takes is one person to report it and they can be banned and possibly charged.
Btw I hope we can give your team a real treat by knocking the crap out of Philly.
People are brave when they can hide behind the shield of a computer screen. Plus a lot of people don't seem to realize that what they say on social media is real. They act like it is some sort of fantasy land where whatever they say cannot be held against them if something bad happens. Many times there are no immediate consequences so they don't think anything is wrong.
And good luck in Game 5. Hope the Devils know that when teams have their backs to the wall, that is when they are the most dangerous. And if that fails before Game 6 they should watch video of the 99 Pens~NJ series
