Try again. The glut of those people are from South Philly, the suburbs and South Jersey.


And, no, I'm not from the NE.

I know, really. Sports fans got carried away ... it happens globally dozens of times a year.

Who cares what sports fans outside the Philly area thinks about us. They're always going to hate us! Nothing new.

Exactly! I was proud that my hometown fans spoke up when their team obviously quit. I can't believe these pundits getting worked up over some wrist bands.

Maybe the Flyers needed this kick in the behind - play like crap, this is the reception you'll get in philly.

That's why fans felt fine throwing them away.
But there WAS a tribute to him at that game. Regardless of the wristbands' original use as being for a light show or their worth after, the context and spirit of that game was all about Ed Snider. Again, to throw those on the ice on that night makes it extra classless.
