Can someone tell me why ?

Not really looking to insult Flyers fans here, but has anyone noticed the major difference in participation in the respective "fan" threads.
With a larger population in Philadelphia, you would think that the Pens fans would be outnumbered, not the other way around.
Do they not have a great fan base or are people out east just not that into hunting ?
Just seems odd to me that the Pens threads almost triple the Flyers threads.
Any thoughts ?

Most of the people out this way work for a living I guess!

I find pennsyltucky (that is, all of PA except philly and pitt) to be largely comprised of penguin fans. I couldnt say why for sure but it might be because rural pennsylvanians don't identify with the major US city's like philly.

Re: Can someone tell me why ?

There may be more of us Pens fans but I think we are more likely to talk about games while they are actually taking place than Flyers fans. You look on the Flyers thread after a game, and you'll see six posts. Five of them will be something simple like "Good win" or "nice game". The Penguin thread has fifty posts after a game. They dont break them down the way we do over here. Not saying either is right or wrong. Plus there is the one other factor that insures we'll have more posts on the Penguins thread than they do on the Flyers thread:

WE have Trask.

Hunting: 10% skill and 90% location.

You're welcome guys!!!

I dunno, maybe it is because we actually discuss hockey over there...

Discussing and breaking down games is a lot more engaging and fun then simply saying "good win" or "tough loss".

ooooh discussing hockey is what you call that. I could have sworn you were all clinically depressed.

Not all of us

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