I was wondering if in ESPNs 30 for 30 series they would do something about one of if not the most infamous teams in all of sports...the 75 Flyers.

Broad Street Bullies, I loved it. Back then I was one of the first to have Prism Cable and everyone on my block stopped over to watch the games.

LOL! I remember Prism. My father was the first on our block to have Suburban Cable back in the day.

Just watched the full thing. I almost forgot about that game against the Soviets in 76.

The game against the Soviets was huge back then, and the Flyers really came through.

I still remember attending the parade down Broad St, had a great place to see them at Broad and Washington.

They left the ice and Snider told their coach "You ain't gonna play, well you ain't getting your money pinko."
Made me proud to be an American!
