Philadelphia Flyers Fans Boo Anti-Cancer Ad Featuring Rival Players During Game
During an intermission between periods in the game against the Vancouver Canucks in the team’s home opener, a Hockey Fights Cancer public service announcement appeared on the arena’s jumbotron. The PSA featured Pittsburgh Penguins center Sidney Crosby, Chicago Blackhawks center Jonathan Toews and Buffalo Sabres goalie Ryan Miller, disliked players on teams which have had bitter rivalries with the Flyers over the years. So Flyers fans did what came naturally when they saw those players: they booed them, despite the fact they were representing and speaking to a worthwhile cause which I am confident most Flyers fans wouldn’t boo had it not been for those players’ appearances in the spot.

I just want to know how Philly, that tiny little corner of the world...got so rotten. I mean you got Baltimore Orioles fans right around the corner...and they're fine. It's almost like the Philadelphia fan bases are benign tumors on the sports landscape...benign, but tumors nontheless

Baltimore sports fans are fine when it comes to the Orioles because the O's give them nothing to be arrogant about. But when it comes to the Ravens? They're a bunch of purple-clad lunatics.

It's not unprecedented. I was at Giants Stadium when an esteemed cancer doctor and a former supermodel (don't remember who) got booed out of the building during their speeches because they were on the field at the same time as Tisch was. :lol:

It's Philadelphia, the hell-hole of the Mid-Atlantic. They're just a bunch of cheesesteak eating goons. Flyers fans sometimes make Ranger fans look pretty tame.

I talked to my gf's father who is like 62 and used to be an Eagles and Flyers STH.. He said back during the Broad Street Bullies the Flyers fans were pretty benign.. But he said that Eagles fans were always crazy, and he thinks that the atmosphere created by the Eagles just spread to the other sports (Flyers and Phillies).. It became an acceptable culture that they seem to be proud of

It's really disgusting but then again it's just an ugly side of humanity.. People can be flat out dirty

well, maybe if they used a devil...I've seen Marty do something similar lately, or Parise, Kovy, Elias? I wish the league would stop relying on the league pretty boys. Lol if he didn't get dropped by the rangers, could have used Avery as an anti-bullying spokesman...:rofl:

.....oh wait...:unsure:

Well we booed Crosby, not Miller or Toews :lol:

Let's face it, anyone's fanbase has enough yahoos to boo their rivals the minute they see them up on the screen. Ranger fans would boo Marty doing that spot, hell Nuck fans would probably boo Tim Thomas. But yeah we can't exactly claim the high ground now.

devils fans shouldn't critisize booing by anyone. devils fans (atleast in our building)boo everything. if they put a recognizable serial killer in a devs sweater up on the scoreboard, they'd probably cheer.

I think the fanbases are still somewhat different depending on the sport and opponent. I went to a Phils/Red Sox game this past summer and sat in the 8th row behind the sox dubgout. Those sections were split almost 50/50 Phils/Sox fans and I witnessed no problems (not even vulgar language) at all.

On the other hand, I bought tickets to the 11/3 devils game in Philly and specifically bought club/suite tickets to stay away from the riff raff. I am so ashamed of myself it's ridiculous, but I truly believe I've lowered my chances of getting shanked with a sharpened toothbrush by sitting in the suite.

But then again...who knows with those crazy philly a$$holes.

if you're afraid of the scum in philly, you're a bit of a pansy to be honest. they're classless pieces of sh!t but they're not going to kill you.

it's a shame no devils fans make the trip there anymore

I was overstating about the shank for emphasis; obviously I'm not worried about actually being killed. And, I've given Rangers/Flyers fans enough of a hard time in my day that I fully expect it back, but taking into consideration their reputation, I wouldnt want to have a beer thrown at me or anything of that nature. That's a line I've never crossed. Since I've never been to the WF Center, I really dont know if it goes beyond what I typically expect as rivals banter.
