Re: The NHL Thread (Avs are in the playoffs! 3elieve!)
 
Went to game 4, that sucked.

Went to game 6 to make up for game 4, sucked a little less but still sucked.

Sometimes I really hate being a fan of a Philly sports team. Idiots throwing shit on the ice when you are a damn WC playoff team going up against back to back Cup winners. Lol canít stand this cityís fans sometimes, man.

Flyers werenít a wild card and finished two points behind the Pens in the standings.

Good call about the WC, guess it just felt that way... but regardless of the 2 pts between them, there is a clear difference in talent level. Iím not sure what there is to get so pissed about. If this was years and years of frustrating play from a top team in the league year in, year out (like the Caps) i guess I would understand.

Iím just not sure where these people come from where throwing shit on the ice (2 closeout playoff games in a row vs clearly superior opponents), beer cans at opposing fans, etc is acceptable behavior for adults. I mean in 2 outta the last 3 playoff games Iíve been to, Iíve seen Flyers fans fighting each other. Makes no sense.

Excited to sit back and watch Gm 6 tonight and root for the Blue Jackets to push it to 7.

Was there no mention of the Torts guarantee in here? That fucking guy, probably gonna end up guaranteeing a loss at home tonight :lol

The thing is Caps fans aren't shitty. Even though the team, refs, bad situations - whatever you want to call it - keep happening you don't see shit being thrown on the ice. You don't see them booing Crosby

Every single time stuff like this happens the excuse is always, "But they're passionate, that's why they do it". No, they're fucking idiots

It's just dumb drunk people being dumb drunk people. Sadly, Philly has A LOT of them. You're right. You're adults. Act like it. It's just a game.

Let's be honest, Torts deserves all of this. I also didn't see anything in the video & don't really have time to look. I'll take it that there was actually ice being thrown on the bench?

If there is one fan doing something, you can narrow it down. when it's the whole stadium it's another thing.

This one still gives me all the lulz https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TBeZWZGxlpU&t=15s

I didn’t understand that last night when he posted twice about that.

The Eagles won the super bowl so they “own” a stadium in which they’ve never played?

Even if that made any sense (it doesn’t) I’m not sure what that has to do with hockey

Meh whatever. Drunk people gonna drunk people. It's idiotic, yes, but not exactly breaking news. But this shit only comes up when it happens in Philly. That gets tired :rolleyes

The Super Bowl was played in Minnesota's stadium. He's a Minnesota fan. But no, has nothing to do with hockey outside of AJF is just a weird Philly hater.

I will say the Caps fans I've come across at WFC have been pretty good. A Caps fan was actually the one trying to break up the fight between 2 Flyers fans I mentioned earlier :lol

I don't see a problem booing Crosby at all but for example the fans boo the refs as soon as they come onto the ice in pregame... for what? The game hasn't even played yet and there hasn't been any really terrible calls vs the flyers that cost them a game in the series or anything. Just unnecessary.

Agreed... I go to close to 10 Flyers games a year and idk how to explain it but I feel like people show up to these playoffs game actively looking for something to get pissed off about... I get things are charged up in the playoffs but during the regular season the fanbase finds that right mix between being into the game but not going over the top.

Wasn't trying to turn this thread into the "Philly Sports Fan" thread but honestly I can't stand those types of Philly fans. Good luck to all your teams in here (except for the Pens fans). Go Preds!

How is he after a playoff defeat? I imagine it stings, but that he's been around long enough to have learned how to move forward.

:lol I didnít talk to him specifics. Heís fine though, his normal self aside from being banged up.

Side note: props to the Avs fans for cheering on the guys even in a brutal defeat. Thatís what fans should be doing!

I was super pleased with the fans. They've really come back in force this year and it's been fun to see.

Overall, the team is hella fun to watch. I'm excited to see how they come back next season after a learning experience like this.

So is it against any rules what just happened with Bill Peters? Clearly he had an under the table deal done to get hired by the Flames before resigning from Carolina.

Not to excuse the fans because they are fucking idiots, but I think they were throwing shit due to the perceived shitty officiating and not the overall narrative of the game

Throwing (full) beer cans is throwing beer cans. Doesnt matter what the reasoning is.


Philly fans hate the stereotype, but they keep living up to it.

I wasn't trying to excuse it, but that's cool. Also, the ones who hate are the ones who it doesn't apply to. That's how these things work

I believe he had a clause in his contract where he had a window to talk to other teams. So 100% ok.

He definitely had an 'out' clause that he clearly exercised. I'm fairly certain I also saw that the Flames requested permission to speak with him and were granted said permission.

I donít think we really hate it. Itís just that many of the stories are overblown, and stuff that has happened in many cities over the years.

Noone is pretending they dont exist. Theres not really any tampa fans that come in here, so it doesnt get brought up. I feel like this is deja vu of something said last year too. Follow during the season and come here to discuss!

Sounds like you pretend it doesn't either unless they make the playoffs. :lol

But seriously, we are all hockey fans here who have our own teams, for sure, but are down with talking about other teams when there's something worth talking about. For me and Tampa, I just don't know there's much to talk about... they are a great team who will probable come out on top of the East. Great for them. FWiW, I hope Hedman gets the Norris. He deserves it.
