EFF THE FLYERS!

Eric said...

dont know if any1 noticed, but Scuderi is -4 tonight. Sabu's weakness is stick-side. Mike Emrick and Edzo make me want to vomit. Staal's breakaway....nough said

time for some comeback cake

Brett said...

Roberts just beat the piss out of Eager and I completely forgot the score. Bunch of fucking goons, Phili. nothing but goons.

PittHockey said...

Penguins getting spanked right now. :(

Lana said...

This is difficult to listen to on the radio.

Flyers can thank the refs said...

Can these refs honestly claim that minus the fighting penalties, the Flyers have only committed 4 penalties?!? This is a joke, this is way too out of hand. How can they miss that elbow on Laraque? Im glad Sid tripped Biron up cause he never shuts his damn mouth. This is honestly a total joke and this is exactly when injuries happen because theyre just going to be taking cheap shots on everyone now because the refs totally lost all control of this game

i fucking hate eager

fuck the flyers

Sean said...

This game can't end soon enough. It's probably tough to play three straight games in Western Canada and then fly all the way back across the country to play another road game.

Eric said...

January 24th, mark it on your calendar

Roberts is a beast

As long as Philadelphians support the Flyers, Karma will ensure that they will never see a major championship won by any of their teams.

The refs should be very thankful that this game ended without someone being serioulsy injured. I agree with Sean, we're on the road for 3 games all the way across the country only to play another road game when we get back? Thats a little rough.

well between the pounding roberts delivered and the amazing post that (hopefully) comes tomorrow, we won't really care about the score until January 24th, or until Vengeance shows up on our doorsteps. whichever comes first.

Penguins sweep the next 5 games against the Filthadelphians, mark it down. In that 3rd period they all stuck up for each other and truly became a point. Even though it's not a win, this game could be another turning point in this season. The Flyers have won the battle but I guarantee you that they'll lose the war, just like they've been doing since 1975. We're still only 3 points back of the division and we're still in solid playoff position. 3-1 on this road trip is pretty damn good if you ask me. Can't wait to be back in the igloo for Thursday night against the Sens.

LETS GO FUCKING PENS!!!!!!

BGL had the play of the year with the slide tackle into that fuck Biron

You know, to expand upon the Philly fans and karma, now and then I might feel bad for the fans of philly sports teams. The Phillies finally squeaking into the playoffs, only to lose in the first round. The Sixers getting to the NBA finals when Iverson was in his heyday and getting swept. The Eagles finally making it to the Super Bowl and getting beat by the golden boy Brady. But with games like tonight, it always brings me back to this little planet we call Earth.

Fuck Philadelphia. Fuck the ugly people that inhabit that city. And fuck each one of their sports teams. I hope those fans never win another championship in any sport. Or at least until the Pirates make it to another world series. But I guess that's redundant...

The Hebrew Hammer said...

I say this in full sincerity, if Philadelphia would burn to the ground tomorrow, I would stand up and cheer. I hate the city and every fucking person in that godforsaken place.

i was called a HOMOx1000 times. oh well, at least i dont cheer for feely.

go pens!

Embarrassment blog...

Damn that was aweful. I will admit that going into the 3rd the Flyers were outplaying us. But then the refs totally let the game get out of hand by completely missing the elbow by that faggot Eager. Then they give Laraque 4 fucking minutes! Then know they fucked up they didn't even it out like they usually do, they just kept calling bullshit stuff including roughing on Armstrong but nothing on the guy that was roughing back!

Thank god the Pens jobbed Biron a couple of times and the old man beat the piss out of Eager. Had that not happened they would have all had to turn in their Man Club cards for losing this bad to the goddamn Flyers of all teams.

Coach T better be in the locker room on Jan 24 telling them they WILL NOT LOSE THIS FUCKING GAME.

I wish gary roberts was my dad...

karri said...

Once again...Gary Roberts showed all what he would do.

What a player. He is truly F'in unbelievable!

hextallfan said...

Penguins fans trashing the arenas of other teams? Interesting. I do believe the Mellon Arena is the joke of the league.

By the way, I love this blog. I wish the Flyers had something similar to it. (Maybe I'll start one!)

Brett said...

Somebody brought up everybody that lives in Phili sucks.

I went to school at Penn State, which is just about the dead midpoint between Pittsburgh and Phili. So anytime there was a Steelers/Eagles or Pens/Flyers it was nuts. but anyway-

Since the two cities are relatively close, I knew many people from phili. And I solemnly swear, 4 out of 5 people that were originally from Phili, I did not like. Or had serious issues. And I almost always found out that they were from Phili after-the-fact. I swear, there's something in the water over there.

This is what I find funny...

If you add in the points from tonight, Sidney Crosby has played in 190 games and recorded 264 points. Mike Richards on the other hand has played in 166 games and only recorded 100 points.

Thats only 24 fewer games than Crosby, and 162 points less. He would need to score nearly 7 points per game (6.75 exactly) in those other 24 games in order to have the same number of points as Crosby if their games played were equal, and yet he thinks that he can insult Crosby on his play and tell him how to play the game?!? That just baffles my mind...

Mike Richards will never be half the player that Sidney Crosby is right now at the young age of 20 and yet he thinks that he can tell Crosby how to play the game? That just doesnt make any sense to me.

So maybe when Richards wins the Hart and Art Ross in the same year, or maybe even just one of the two, then he can talk...

the flyers bite.
go pens.

disturbtheworld said...

You need to replace Whitney in the next game section. Letang is twice the defenseman that sack of crap has been this year. I didn't think he could play any worse than he did in Edmonton, but the inept wonder twin powers of Whitney and Scuderi combined has proven me wrong. A -4 must be a status symbol in Boston...

BTW, Roberts is God.

I hate the fliers. My best friend and I are ex-pittsburghers (jobs forced us this direction) and we were in awe of this game.

I liked hextall though, he like all the pro philly athletes live in southern jersey. I never heard hextall getting benched for girly injuries.

stokes said...

Hextall fan: are you seriously a flyers fan? cuase that was a classy comment from a fanbase that is the exact opposite.


moving on.

i said almost the same thing about philly, hammer: i wish that they would drop the bomb on that place.

its been said already, but, you change time zones four times in how many days and expect to play hockey on top of that, you're gonna be flat eventually. THAT flat is debatable.

Scuds did look like crap. Roberts completely scrubbed eager's tits. and the refs sucked regardless of how bad the pens played.

if you want to talk whiny bitches, you talk biron. sid's slew foot on him was classic. laraque's was kind of a cheap shot, but then again, the flyers are kind of one big cheap shot.

and where the hell was that "captain" jason smith? i didnt see him afer the first period. or was i just so mad that i couldnt see...

Big rebound against a struggling Ottawa team. Pensblog Charlie, get ready for some Ottawhiners!

ps: Canaan, good thing you made it home alive.

Lauren said...

I can't believe I'm fucking moving to the city where they chanted "Crosby Sucks" instead of not being complete assholes and cheering for their team...Poor sportsmanship across an entire city, that's what that is. Disgusting.

Hextallfan, if you haven't heard the news, we are getting a new arena in the near future. Um, and it's not in South Philly.


Staff, have you guys seen this yet? Ouch.

Sick To My Stomach said...

George Laraque disgraced himself, his team, his coaches, and every single Penguins fan for one of the most pathetic acts I have seen in an NHL game in a long time. That guy is a fucking joke. And if he touches the ice in the next game Therrien is fucking joke as well.

Also, I am shocked that Scuderi continues to play ahead of Sydor. After his performance tonight, I think that is going to change.

Lana said...

Excuse me, joke of league?
Have you been to any games there?

Although...
If we wanna talk joke, try Ottawa.
Pens/Sens first playoff game, you could hear a pin drop.

Anonymous said...

The word Hextall should not grace this site without an expletive in front of it.

hextallfan:

It ain't the building that counts...it's the fans inside it that make an arena.

The trash dump fits Filthydelphia.

Anonymous said...

so after watching the game...it's already been said, refs definitely let the game get out of hand. It's hard to believe we were tied at the end of the first period....or even down 4-2 during the 2nd. I think the tides really turned after they scored that fifth goal and when Laraque got that penalty when he was elbowed first and what not by a Flyer who should have also been spending some penalty box time.

Unbelievable. I mean if you're team is winning I just don't understand why it's necessary as a fan to chant against the other team and yell our players suck. I mean, Flyers fans would chant that Crosby sucks, only to not realize that he has more points, assists, and goals (tied actually) with any Flyer player. So maybe before they start getting jealous, they should chant about a player that *truly* does suck. Actually, if a Flyers fan had any brains, maybe they would cheer for their own team.

Gooo Pens.

YOUKNOW said...

How is it that every referee in the nhl is out to get the pens enough is enough time for Michel Therrien to hit the road and get someone that will make this team play to its level. Not to point fingers or name names but lets not turn out like the pittsburgh steelers of the 90's and hang onto bill chower. you can't win for the chin

hextallfan said...

Stokes - yeah, I'm a Flyers fan, and I appreciate the kind words. This blog is special (even though its less than kind to myself and my team), and I think its absolutely hilarious at times. I really wish we had something like this in Flyer country. And as for the comment about the fans...well, we're not all that bad. We're passionate about our team just like you guys are.

Lauren - Yes, I know the Pens are getting a new arena. That doesn't change the fact that the one they play in now almost caused them to move to KC or Hamilton last year.

Lana - Yes, I've been to Mellon Arena. I was there last year for the Pens/Flyers season opener. (My roommate is a HUGE Pens fan, and we drove up there and back in one night from Virginia...fun times.) The fans were on the Flyers just like the Philly fans were on the Pens last night. I was called all sorts of names for wearing my Flyers jersey...the same type of treatment a Pens fan would get in Philly.
