Ed Snider Showed Up at Practice Today to Choke the Flyers with His Meddling Hands

Voila_Capture499Ed Snider stopped by Flyers practice and spoke to the media today, because what the Flyers need right now is Snider getting involved in this mess.

On the boos:

“When they’re booing like they were last night, to me it’s very disconcerting, but I understand them and I don’t blame them. The effort was pathetic. We were losing all the battles along the boards. We can’t continue to be a team that can’t score, and if we can’t score, we can at least win the battles along the boards.”

Yes, because winning battles along the boards and pushing other teams around will win you games. You need to score, Ed. There’s actually no other way to win games than by scoring. You can win every battle, but when you jettison half your offensive output over the course of three years and replace it with unproven youngsters and grit guys, this is what happens. Two goals in four games happens. 1.47 goals per game happens.

On booing Paul Holmgren:

“Well, I mean it’s upsetting, obviously. But Paul understands it, as I think he said to the press after it happened. Next they’ll be calling for my head and I don’t blame them.”

Well then, don’t blame us, Ed, because THEY ARE CALLING FOR YOUR HEAD. THEY ARE! Go outside, open up the window, stick your head out and… listen. Everyone thinks you’re off your rocker. You’re one more wacky press conference away from being Al Davis. There’s a very real possibility that you’re going to fire two coaches and one GM in the same season. You’re paying $23 million to your former goaltender so he can take his friends out for breakfast. Your young core is in LA, winning Stanley Cups. That goalie you always wanted? He won a Vezina… in Columbus. All this because, two years ago, your team got bounced in the second round of the playoffs (by the eventual Stanley Cup champions) a year after playing to Game 6 of the Finals– ever think that, as a group, they were just exhausted from playing 200 hockey games in a year and a half? You needed to blow it up. You wanted to blow it up. You blew it up and now you suck. You’ve got to be more patient, play the long game. You think I would just change my logo on a whim and replace it with something that everybody universally hates? Of course not! You can’t do that with your hockey team, either. You can’t just trade everybody because “you didn’t win the Cup that one year after you almost won it.” You’re silly. Just step away and remove your hands from the team. Please.

  1. It’s nice to know that some smart Flyers fans are finally agreeing with me for being pissed two summers ago when that fucking moron ruined a young team.

  2. From Espn:

    Incognito had been drinking and was “acting very inappropriate towards her,” and that she went to police after Incognito said he wouldn’t apologize.

    The report states that the volunteer told police that Incognito “used his golf club to touch her by rubbing it up against her vagina, then up her stomach then to her chest. He then used the club to knock a pair of sunglasses off the top of her head.

    “After that, he proceeded to lean up against her buttocks with his private parts as if dancing, saying ‘Let it rain! Let it rain!'” the report states. “He finally finished his inappropriate behavior by emptying bottled water in her face.”


    1. Cogs…could be the biggest scumbag on the face of the earth, but god damn this dude doesn’t give a fuck

      sidenote: flyers fucking blow…trade g and get that #1 pick

        1. I was responding to your 1st comment about Incognito that nobody in the Philly area gives a damn about.

    2. Cool story. Can you tell more about your superior taste in music? Dude, you going to Alkaline Trio and NGF? No? Not org enough, I guess. I know this cliche but I bet you’re so stoked for that new Lawrence Arms records. FEST!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      You are the worst.

      1. Hey fuckface, nice burn…it’s like you’ve known me all along! No, unfortunately I won’t be attending the NFG/AK3 show, you’re right….instead I’ll be hiding behind a computer screen assuming I know the musical tastes of someone else’s opinion who you obviously think is pretty good if you reference such substancesless $38 ticket big bands….no not a fan of the Lawrence Arms, not really my thing….

        Am I the worst? Or are you just some scumbag who writes down the band references of someone who has guitar teched for bands like Lifetime and Blacklisted to name a few….I don’t need to explain shit to you fucktard….you in fact, are a chode, with little to no knowledge of dick! You’re a cockzit on all that is decent

        1. Yeah, but that Menzingers show at The Note is going to be most righteous.

          1. Please play in traffic….seriously youre a creeper and a scumbag….borderline sociopath….im the worst and a cretin because i guitar teched for a seminal hxc band ? You copy usernames and add dumb shit to them to try and look edgy and cool, you failed you waste of life…still here ya taint

        2. I also love how you make reference to my previous posts about different “org” bands over a period of time on here….how fucking pathetic are you? Seriously, are you secretly in love with me? I mean, you took tabs on my posts about various bands days ago even weeks ago….wow are you a fucking chode….probably some limp dick chode with a bayside tattoo…kill yourself….you chase dudes? Wow…you really suck at life hiding behind a computer screen….waste

          1. Yeah, but what about the show at The Note? We’ll do beers! It’s gonna be better than that time For Science and Gaslight played that house show in New Brunswick!

            Oh, and trying to insult someone by saying they did tech work for Lifetime really shows me what an uninformed cretin you really are.

  3. When he spoke of winning the battles along the boards, he was referring to puck possession, which is a big part of scoring goals. You can’t score if you don’t have the puck. And you won’t have the puck much if your players aren’t willing to win those battles along the boards. He’s criticizing the team’s effort.

    Say what you want about Snider as an owner, but he’s right on the money in this case.

    And give him credit for not griping about the fans booing. He gets it.

    1. Nice pair of of lips to place on the backside of one Mr Snider from the comment board of crossing broad(Lol).

    2. WHAT IN THE HOLY FUCKING HOCKEY STICK?? I need a beer, did you just say ED GETS IT??? Fuck me sideways, you are a moron. Ed gets NOTHING, he still lives in fucking 1974 and probably gave Emery a bonus check for what he did.

      Ed doesn’t get it, he never fucking will.

      Oh and Ed HAS to placate the fans (agree with them), his team is shit and they will stop coming.

    1. Don’t worry, Mikey Miss will spend the next 2 weeks talking about it and disecting it from every racial/political/social angle. His show has become unlistenable.

  4. Kyle that logo is embarrassing, you feeble minded twit.

    Ed Snider should choke you with his meddling hands.

  5. I hole-hardedly agree, but allow me to play doubles advocate here for a moment. For all intensive purposes I think you are wrong. In an age where false morals are a diamond dozen, true virtues are a blessing in the skies. We often put our false morality on a petal stool like a bunch of pre-Madonnas, but you all seem to be taking something very valuable for granite. So I ask of you to mustard up all the strength you can because it is a doggy dog world out there. Although there is some merit to what you are saying it seems like you have a huge ship on your shoulder. In your argument you seem to throw everything in but the kids Nsync, and even though you are having a feel day with this I am here to bring you back into reality. I have a sick sense when it comes to these types of things. It is almost spooky, because I cannot turn a blonde eye to these glaring flaws in your rhetoric. I have zero taller ants when it comes to people spouting out hate in the name of moral righteousness. You just need to remember what comes around is all around, and when supply and command fails you will be the first to go. Make my words, when you get down to brass stacks it doesn’t take rocket appliances to get two birds stoned at once. It’s clear who makes the pants in this relationship, and sometimes you just have to swallow your prize and accept the facts. You might have to come to this conclusion through denial and error but I swear on my mother’s mating name that when you put the petal to the medal you will pass with flying carpets like it’s a peach of cake

  6. Kyle,

    Give me some props for being the one to name Mr.Baldwin the Al Davis of the NHL.
    I am still waiting for the Members Only 80s jacket and the sunglasses. Can you photo shop this on Mr Baldwin ?
