To a degree, but you have to realize that a teams value is often more indicative of the league and sport nationally than their placeholder regionally

All things being equal with all teams and with potential maxed out:

1. Eagles
2. Phillies
3. Sixers
4. Flyers
5. Big 5
6. Union


Eagles are king. Period.

The Sixers have been so bad for so long it's hard to imagine them ranking ahead of the Flyers, but they definitely have a higher ceiling and more mass appeal.

The Phillies, Sixers and College basketball teams definitely have higher fluctuation in terms of their support. Bad times are really bad, but good times are really good.

The Flyers and Union are much more steady in terms of their core devoted fans, but don't have as high of a ceiling. Even though they aren't ranked very high on my list, their support is still great. The city is just a great sports town overall.

any given season can shuffle the list, but the above is probably baseline IMO.

Just the worst! Morons. Idiots. Of course it all went kinda viral.... Sigh.

I get the frustration regarding our, generally, non-contending teams... but come on. It was sickening to see it.

Yes, especially given the context of why those wristbands were given--for Ed Snider's passing and tribute. That's really what gives it that extra "push" of classlessness, imo--yea, the 3rd period blew the game wide open, but to do that on THAT night, of all nights? Very low.

Every hockey fan I know now hates the Flyers and the city of Philadelphia even more after that lack of class shown by the fans. What a disgraceful showing. Sickening.

That's exactly what those fools miss EVERY SINGLE TIME. It reflects on the entire region, makes us look extremely bad and because it's on the Internet it will stay there forever.

You are spot on. It reflects badly on the Delaware Valley, not just those inside the WFC.

Yeah, that was terrible. Idiots from the NE. Luckily it was just hockey and not a sport more widely followed (i.e. football, baseball or basketball).

Incorrect. The wristbands had nothing to do with Ed Snider or the tribute to him at the game. They were provided by the NHL and used for the pre-game lightshow. They were basically a strap, a battery, an LED and a microchip, set to respond to a radio signal at predetermined intervals. After the light show, they were literally garbage. That's why fans felt fine throwing them away.
