Flyers Fans Prove To Be The Most Disgraceful Fans In Hockey

On Monday night, the Flyers and their fans intended to honor founder Ed Snider, who died last Tuesday due to bladder cancer before they faced-off against the Capitals in Game 3. The organization gave away light-up bracelets and painted Snider’s initials behind the goals. Lauren Hart, the team’s longtime anthem singer, sang “God Bless America” with Snider’s name and 67 on the back of her team jersey.

 

But Flyers fans, some of whom had reportedly been tailgating since the early afternoon, showed disgraceful behavior that only got worse as the the Caps continued to score well into the third period.

 

It was undignified. It was an embarrassment. It was– as Al Koken best put it– a “clown show.”

 

Here’s the recap:

 

Before warm-ups even began, one Flyers fan went down to the glass by the Caps bench and taunted Braden Holtby.

 

 

Before puck drop, a moment of silence held for Ed Snider was interrupted by a fan yelling f-bombs at the Capitals.

 

 

 

Screaming “Lets Go Flyers” during the anthem is one thing. Screaming curses at the opposing team during a moment of silence for the man that built your organization is just complete disrespect. Classless move by the Flyers fans to start off an all-around embarrassing night for the organization.

 

As the second period began, one Flyers fan flipped off the Capitals bench for a photo.

 

 

Soon after that, Brooks Orpik got injured after a huge hit by Ryan White. As Orpik was helped off the ice and into the locker room, Philadelphia fans booed him (Pens fans did the same thing after Hank took a stick to the eye in Game 1).

 

 

Hard to believe, but it got worse…

 

After John Carlson put the Caps up 4-1, Flyers fans decided to abandon their team and headed for the exits.

 

 

With under eight minutes left to go in the very one-sided game, Flyers forward Pierre-Édouard Bellemare checked Dmitry Orlov headfirst into the boards. Fans responded by throwing their light-up bracelets onto the ice.

 

One bracelet hit Dmitry Orlov in the face while he was being looked at on the bench.

 

 

After this, the Flyers PA Announcer had enough of the Flyers fans and told them to “have some class.”

 

 

You would think that MAYBE the Flyers fans would settle down at this point but no. Instead, they threw beers. After they were warned by their own PA announcer, Flyers fans continued throwing trash on the ice, forcing officials to call a bench minor against the Flyers.

 

 

Here’s Mike Richards knocking a bracelet away from center ice.

 

 

Even Flyers players had enough of their own fans.

 

 

After the game, “Embarrassing” was trending in Philly.

 

 

Just an overall disgraceful night for the Flyers organization. This just proves what a terrible fan base Philly has. I can’t wait to see what they have in store for Game 4 when the Caps sweep them.

 

 


Tanner Glass Is Ready To Fight Wayne Simmonds

As many of you know, this Sunday is Valentine’s Day. And while couples across the country will be exchanging chocolates and roses, it seems that Tanner Glass and Wayne Simmonds will be exchanging punches.

 

 

This past Saturday, the Flyers hosted the Rangers in a matinee game that the Blueshirts would go on to win in a shootout. But in good ol’ Rangers/Flyers tradition, it didn’t happen without incident…

 

 

Now that Ryan McDonagh is “day-to-day’ with a concussion, Ranger’s enforcer, Tanner Glass, thinks it’s time for Simmonds to answer for his actions

 

 

I’m glad that Glass is stepping up and making it known that the Rangers aren’t going to allow things like this. Players are going to think twice before taking a run at star players if they know that Glass is there to hold them accountable. I wouldn’t be surprised if McIlrath tries to drop the gloves with Simmonds too. I can just picture Glass and McIlrath flipping a coin in the locker room before the game to see who gets to fight him.

 

Glass and Simmonds are no strangers to each other though. They fought once before back in 2013:

 

 

If Sunday’s tilt is anything like that fight, then we are in for a treat. And Simmonds really has no choice but to fight Glass now. Once it’s in the media, it’s a done deal.

 

P.S. I would be pretty scared to drop the gloves with someone who fights bears:
