"The flyers are the stupidest team in the league."

i think this is kind of funny considering who said it.

Well I am a Flyers fan and based on 3 of those 4 hits, it is hard not to agree to some extent. I think the League Officials are watching us extra close after the Downie and Boulerice hits and our guys continue to make bad decisions (Jones and Hartnell)

I have the game on in the other room and I could hear when they started talking about it and I couldn't stop laughing at how ironic his statement was. You're wrong, he didn't say "dumbest", he said, "The Flyers are the stupidest team in the league".

Engblom just talked in a circle for about two minutes. He didn't really say anything at all.

"Hartnell is a professional, he should have stopped."


Yeah, ya think?


I mean it was really enlightening.

I love how everyone hates us, hates this team, hates MY team. I love it because if everyone else wants to play these childish, pink pantie-wearing, games with us, I'm going to play right back and give them exactly what they want. 99% of the people saying we're "dirty" and the players are doing these things "on purpose" are just blinded by their own team-colored idiot goggles. They're people who hate the Flyers no matter what, even before one guy took an idiot cross-check to a guys face and three guys got unjustly penalized. I've said it before, and I'll say it again. **** like this has been happening to Flyers players for the last decade or nearly decade and a half and people just laugh and cry "good hit" or "he had his head down." And now it's FINALLY coming back the other way, the shoe is FINALLY on the other foot and people are squirting tears and pissing their pants. Nobody gave a damn when our players got wrecked, so I'm not going to give a damn about other teams' players getting destroyed either. What goes around, comes around, and it's coming around like a mother ****er right now and I..AM..LOVING..IT!

I don't know if they're the dumbest team, but they've made some dumb decisions. I know this is a team that plays with an edge, and needs to play with an edge in order to be successful, but they need to start using their heads a bit more often.

I agree and am glad they are. Are the Flyers going for a record for most guys suspended in a season?

Considering how some folks take what commentators and the media say as gospel, he could have said a lot worse. He called the team stupid, not dangerous, malicious, or a clear and present danger to mankind as we know it! Maybe, just maybe, his "sage" words will calm the unwashed masses.

Just a thought....

Gee if this is what Engblom said about us I cant wait to see what Scott Doucheside has to say about us in his next article.

Whats the over/under on all the other incidents that happened this year being brought up in a non-irrelevant manner

Hartnell, Jones, Boulerice and Downie... all stupid plays. So what is the issue here?

People need to learn that just because someone says something negative about the team you root for doesn't mean they're idiots or their opinon doesn't matter.

Just out of curiosity....

Does everyone remember the game against the islanders when (i forget who did it) one of their players threw that cheap shot at kukkonens head after the game ended? Did anything ever come of that?

I really didn't expect anything different from Engblom. I am not saying the hit wasn't bad, it was but condemning an entire team for a few incidences is ridiculous. typical over the top reaction.

hahaha. first of all hartnell was going in for a check and the guy was falling down, kinda hard to stop while the guy is falling down. randy jones shouldnt be blamed, not his fault bergeron twisted awkwardly going into the boards and hurt him. that play happens 5-10 times per game and rarely anything happens from it. ok, yeah downie's hit was obviously very illegal and malicious, same with boulerice. boulerice shouldnt even be counted considering hes never going to play for the team again.

brian engblom, get your facts straight.
