"It's easy to hate the Flyers," said Gill, a former Pittsburgh Penguin who lived through the intense cross-state rivalry in the playoffs the last two seasons. "They've been the Broad Street Bullies, their fans are loud and obnoxious.
"If you're from Philly that's great, if you're not you hate them. It's fun to hate the Flyers, just like it's fun for them to hate our fans and our team. It should be a good series as far as hate goes."
Nice article. A lot better than the "they are a great team and it's going to be tough" ********. .

I did get it. I also got over it. We're obnoxious, you're obnoxious. Did Gill really say anything we don't already know? Hall Gill thinks we are rowdy and obnoxious (and he's right). Hall Gill can suck it. Him and that retarded chant.

It probably would, but it shouldn't be that big a deal either way. Both fan bases can be pretty obnoxious.
The reaction to my comment is funny....Gill insults the character of our fanbase, no biggie. I insult the quality of your chant, and I am reaffirming our image as D-bags. This is a nice even handed standard here....

Reason: qdp and response
Gill is just being humble. Flyer crowd might be obnoxious and loud for Pennsylvanian standards lol , but comparing it to the Montreal crowd? " Ya , uh huh" is all I have to say.
Canadiens organization opened up the Bell centre for game 7 to a sold out crowd of almost 22,000 fans ... I bet you anything that crowd was louder than a normal Flyer home game.
Flyer fans are loud and obnoxious when you walk by them with a visitor jersey on ... they'll yell something absolutely retarded and trashy, and then sit like sleepy potatoes for the rest of the game. When there's a big hit or a fight, they'll stand up and do the " Ya you suck Canada " for about 5 seconds.
And the Ole Ole chant pisses Flyer fans off, it makes their hair curl (which makes me smile).
