I can’t believe this, but I agree with every word of Caps radio play-by-play man John Walton’s call last night. He rips Ray Emery and the Flyers a new one. And they deserved it.

Once again another dumb fan that doesn’t know the rules.
46.2 Aggressor – The aggressor in an altercation shall be the player who continues to throw punches in an attempt to inflict punishment on his opponent who is in a defenseless position or who is an unwilling combatant.
A player must be deemed the aggressor when he has clearly won the fight but he continues throwing and landing punches in a further attempt to inflict punishment and/or injury on his opponent who is no longer in a position to defend himself.
A player who is deemed to be the aggressor of an altercation shall be assessed a major penalty for fighting and a game misconduct.
A player who is deemed to be the aggressor of an altercation will have this recorded as an aggressor of an altercation for statistical and suspension purposes.
A player who is deemed to be both the instigator and aggressor of an altercation shall be assessed an instigating minor penalty, a major penalty for fighting, a ten-minute misconduct (instigator) and a game misconduct penalty (aggressor).

no one said anything about the penalty being wrong.. just not worth a suspension.. so yea i know the rules..
November 2, 2013 at 4:52 pm
If you still defend your point after this .. you are a tool.
November 2, 2013 at 1:04 pm
Can you count any rings in the past three decades? nope… at least you have the sixe… oh wait… well at least the eagles are… oh wait… go phillies! oh wait…
November 2, 2013 at 1:39 pm
At least you got the Caps… Oh wait at least you got nattitude (fag)…oh wait at least you got the redskins…oh wait at least you got the wizards. Douche bag. Emery is a tool. We know that. But don’t act like this shit doesn’t happen elsewhere

All those teams are still better than Philadelphia teams. I am not a fan of any of them though. Just an outside observer who has observed that your teams, do in fact suck.
November 2, 2013 at 1:51 pm

November 2, 2013 at 3:59 pm

If you defend what Emory did, you’re an idiot. He’s a scumbag.
November 2, 2013 at 1:53 pm
your a cum bucket, learn how to spell your players names before you post.. go back to watching figure skating
November 2, 2013 at 7:15 pm
You fuckin’ ding dong. Calling someone else out on their spelling when you can’t even use “your” correctly, nice.
November 2, 2013 at 7:21 pm
Learn how to spell the contraction of you and are, it’s fucking YOU’RE, you fucking moron!
November 2, 2013 at 1:44 pm
And there it is, the f-word. Jesus, can you be any more predictable? Homophobic much?

November 2, 2013 at 1:54 pm
Kyle.. You made your point already with 5 articles this morning about emery.. Move on
November 2, 2013 at 4:55 pm
As a major fan of the game, I have to say Emery was a complete ass. Washington’s goalie clearly wanted no parts of Emery, but Emery ignored that and beat the guys ass any way. It does nothing for the team because nothing can help this team. The Flyers are just not a good hockey team, with a bench full of average players, that’s it.

He didn’t just insist on fighting a guy who obviously didn’t want a fight, but he did so in very poor fashion. First off, he punches the guy while the guy’s on his knees, a big no-no unless there’s a history involved. Then, he punches him while he’s not only on his knees, but in the fucking back of the head, like eight times! I thought Emery was an absolute asshole for picking the fight then insisting he go after Holtby in the first place, but after seeing how he was such a fucking dick and so relentless and hitting while down and hitting him in the back of the head… fucking disgusting, absolutely disgusting. I’m no fan of either team, fuck them both, but fuck emery, I hope I never have to see his ugly ass ever again unless someone’s busting his face while he’s knocked out.
November 3, 2013 at 11:19 pm
to be fair, you can’t “sucker punch” someone 6 times. after the first one, it’s pretty obvious. Cap’s announcer is a little bitch. It’s a fucking hockey game. Get over it.
November 4, 2013 at 7:11 pm
Little over the top but I can see how Kyle would beat off to this announcer. Pretty sure you can’t sucker punch someone who knows its coming. Just another major overreaction since that is all we do in this town for anything sports related anymore.
Was an all out brawl in a 7-0 drubbing necessary? Probably not. Was Emery skating the length of the ice to fight a goalie who didn’t want to fight a good idea? Again, probably not. But he did not assault him in anyway. He shouldn’t be suspended. It isn’t the first all out brawl in a hockey game especially a lopsided one. Holtby knew it was coming and should have just fought back. And now its coming out that Holtby was pointing to the scoreboard? So yeah, that’s taunting and therefore leaves you as fair game. If you didn’t want your bell rung while Simmonds and Wilson were trading blows you should’ve have just stayed in your crease or skated around the net like goalies do during stoppages.
