Your team's been drumming up a good bit o' hate for itself there too, sparky.

He kinda makes our "prez" look like a genius, eh??

Bush is right of course...

But you? WRONG!

YUUUUP!

Ed Snider is the "Al Davis" of Hockey!

Seconded...time to push the "RESET" button on this team.

And, big of a Hexy fan as I am, it would be more of the same to let Homer go and slot Hexy in his place. Face it fellow Flyers faithful...it's time for wholesale changes for this team, top to bottom...and unless/until big Ed realizes he needs to let go, wholesale changes will not occur.

Yeah, LOL, I remember those vividly...some "Gene-isms":

- There's a Rugby Scrum to the right of the Flyers net...

- And the Isles are checking the Flyers to a fair-thee-well...

- My friends, it's Katy Bar the Door time!

- Bouncing puck in the slot...LOOSE IN FRONT! McDuffie...bouncing PUCK...SCOOOOORE!!!

And of course, the all timer:

"Ladies and gentlemen...the Flyers are going to WIIIN...the Stanley CUP! The Flyers win the Stanley Cup! The Flyers win the Stanley Cup! The Flyers have WON the STANLEY CUP!!!!"

Ahhh, Gene...I miss him too. You knew it was almost hockey season when you heard his voice in September calling a pre-season game, and you smiled contently at the thought!!

Agreed.

Doc first came on the scene as a local play-by-play announcer for the Flyers and their initial cable outfit, PRISM, back in the 80's. He took over for our ole' pal Gene Hart when Gene's skills started to wane. Doc handled the p-by-p broadcast on TV while Gene moved over to the radio.

The only think that drives me nuts about Doc is his need to constantly use different terms to describe game action...for example, "the puck is ladeled into the corner by Timonnen"...

"Ladeled"?? REALLY??

Thanks...much appreciated. It's been almost 3 years now since he passed. He smoked for over 40 years...you'd never catch me dead with one of those things.

Much as I hate the whiny ****, I think you are right. Ovie's kinda jumped the shark, while Sid is clearly the best in the league now ('specially with Stamkos on the shelf for the forseeable future).

Plus, there's no Caps/Pens rivalry. Rivalry will ALWAYS be Flyers/Pens. Always.

Trust me...I DON'T. Ciggys killed my dad...

I would agree...sometimes they advertise "Rivalry Week" and I think "in what universe is this game a rivalry???" You know, like if they were to have a "rivalry week" game with Buffalo Sabres vs Minnesota Wild, for example. The only way that game's a rivalry is because both venues are Eskimo-killing COLD this time of year!

Are you serious?

I want to give the NBC team post-gasm cigarettes after hearing them swimmingly wax poetic over the Pens for 3 periods.

Posted Thursday June 28, 2012, About: What's behind the NHL's snubbing of Shero
Whooops! You are right...D'OH!
Posted Wednesday June 27, 2012, About: What's behind the NHL's snubbing of Shero
" My gut reaction is that the committee frowns upon Shero because they think the Broad Street Bullies -- the nickname given to Shero's brawling Flyers teams of the 1970s -- soiled the NHL's image."

Hogwash. If that were the case, then why are Bernie Parent, Bobby Clarke, and Ed Snider HOF members?
