Wayne Simmonds Issues Statement on Banana Throwing

The Flyers just released a brief statement from Wayne Simmonds on last night's banana throwing incident:

“It was unfortunate that this incident happened but I am above this sort of stuff. This is something that is out of my control. Moving forward, this incident is something I will no longer comment on so I can just focus on playing hockey for the Philadelphia Flyers.”


Honestly, it's probably best if we all drop it now. Talking about it just brings more attention to the one loud, lone asshole who threw the banana.

H/T to Joe for passing along the above image

  1. Classy. Moving on……
    Sooooooo excited for the festivities on Monday!! Hockey is back and it’s a wonderful time! Now if we could get those bats moving for the Phils this week….

  2. I like this kid already. He’s got class by the ton and will be a welcome addition to the Flyers’ family. And I agree that it’s time to let this issue drop.
