Philly fans...

This is not an indictment on all Philly fans and certainly not members here but this kind of stuff just seems to keep happening in the City of Brotherly Love. Philly fans are some of the most brutal fans in the country not only to the other teams and their fans, but to their own teams. This is a disgrace and yet another black eye for the sport of hockey.

Re: Philly fans...

Not offense bud, but this is becoming old news. There is a lot worse stuff going on at sporting events in other cities, but for some reason the media likes to target and pick on Philly when just one thing happens. Philly is still one of the best sports towns in this country and will be for a long time. Check out Broad Street hockey blog and look at what we are doing for that Rangers fan. I'm a member there and also contributing toward it. You just might change the way you feel.

I'd rather be judged by 12 than carried by 6.

Re: Philly fans...

Good for you phase and good for all the others who condemn this behavior. As I stated, I know there are a lot of good, decent Philly fans and that the majority aren't like this. I know that fans in Oakland and San Fran are some pretty big hooligans as well.

I just hate to see things like this, especially after a hockey game. Hockey has gotten enough of a bad rap for things like the McSorely and Bertuzzi incidents, fighting and then the outrageous riots in Vancouver last year. I realize that alcohol usually fuels these shenanigans but people need to control themselves.

College kids rioting in the streets whether their teams wins or loses, Montreal Canadiens fans doing the same, football fans stabbing each other, baseball fans killing each other, hockey fans brutally beating each other, basketball fans brawling with NBA players and each other, etc. Sporting events around here are starting to look like soccer games in Europe. Why does someone allow themselves to get riled up so much over a game that they are willing to possibly kill someone over it? It's madness.

Re: Philly fans...

I would say alcohol is the biggest factor. Some people just don't know how to control it and themselves, especially if you're an idiot to begin with. Ex-marine, police officer, whatever that Rangers fan is, he's human. That's good enough reason to not be assaulting someone. I might hate the Rangers and Penguins, but as a whole, hockey fans need to stick together. The best sport on earth, period.

I'd rather be judged by 12 than carried by 6.

I don't have ducks. I don't have rows. I have squirrels. And they're drunk.

Re: Philly fans...

I once punched a guy sitting behind me at a phillies game because he said jose reyes was looking really fast. he either said that or jose reyes can kiss my..I just assumed he was a mets fan either way.

Life's too short to hunt with an ugly dog.

Its heart warming to see that fan can still smile after all that....

Re: Philly fans...

Glad to see a respectable post turn into another Philly bashing. You guys are a joke.
