    Timeline – 2024. Flyers announce Downie the new head coach replacing Dan Kordic. 91-year old owner, Ed Snider, seated next to his 23 year old wife, Erica says “He’s part of our culture!”

    Members of the Forum,

    Due to inclement weather, we have unfortunately decided to postpone tonight’s rally. I apologize for all of those who planned on attending. Stay tuned for the new date.

    Thank you,

    Can we stop drumming on this whole culture thing? While i agree that a culture change is needed, its not what everyone is yammering about. There are too many fans of this team who almost seem to enjoy criticising the flyers. Misery loves company, and its as if anything the flyers do, right or wrong, just gets lumped in with “OMG CULTURE CHANGE!!! RAH RAH RAH!!!” , rather than being looked at objectively. The original point of Sielskis confrontation with snyder was to bash him for not hiring anyone other than former flyers and for his wreckless “win now at all costs” approach . Its the Snider/holmgren culture of awful management that needs to go, not the bullies thing.

    Yes, I agree that the whole broad street bullies thing needs to be desparately put to bed. Half of us are young enough to be Bernie Parents grand children (and half of us might be) and im sick of every non-game related flyers event automatically revolving around players from the 70s. As a hockey club, yes we usually lead the league in penalty minutes, but other than that, how have we been different from any other team in the last two decades? A lot of teams still waste a roster spot or two on useless goons. And as far as suspensions go, our team has been below average since they really started cracking down. The brawl vs the capitals wouldnt have been nearly as big of an issue if emery hadnt acted like an asshole, as that kind of stuff happens in hockey all the time.

    I do agree that we tend to over value guys like carcillo, rinaldo and downie more than other teams, which definitley plays into the bullies culture, but thats never actually hurt us big or is the reason why were in this shithole. Hell, carcillo scored an OT playoff goal. And getting downie was a no brainer move: A cheaper, younger upgrade offensively and a guy that can play as a top 6 forward vs an older more expensive 4th liner who really only contributed on special teams. And ill never understand the rinaldo hate. Since his rookie year hes matured into an energetic, physical 4th line guy who draws penalties. Hes what the hockey goon has evolved into and hes a solid player. So I dont really get why people are acting like guys like that are whats wrong with the team.

    The culture that everyone should be bitching about is our awful GM handing out terrible contracts, whos wrapped around the pinky of an owner whos slowly turning into a hybrid of Al davis and Jerry jones — an owner who thinks that the flyers organization is the only one that truely understands hockey and wont hire someone who will challenge him. Its led to an awful product on the ice for thr past two years; one absent of any leadership and full of stubborn coaching.

      You guys should lay off Ruben Amaro, he’s not “awful” as a GM.

      Quick question: Bryz back as assistant goaltending coach…too soon?

      It is the culture. It’s responsible for the type of players they get. Downie is a top 6 forward? For who? The only reason that guy has any career stats at all (other than PIM) is because Tampa and Colorado put him on the top line to protect their scorers. Talbot only good on penalty kill? Maybe, but you’re going to need that now that you have a guy that takes MORE penalties! The culture IS the front office and there are NO former Flyers in the front office that ever had any skill. Dave Brown in charge of scouting? Are you kidding? What kind of players do you think he’s going to get? Stop watching the Flyers for a few weeks and watch the good teams. They’re playing a different game altogether. It’s going to take a dreadful season to change the Flyers philosophy and I think a lot of fans realize that.

        A) You should heed your own advice about watching other teams in regards to downie. I watched him in tampa bay and saw an energetic 20 goal scorer. You dont put a 4th line enforcer with steven stamkos for protection. You put him there to make the line more robust. Not nearly as many penalties or bone headed moves from him since he was with us.
        B) I dont know why youre arguing about culture because I said the same thing essentially. Im in agreement about dave brown. But whats hurt us more? Sreve Downie or our lack of offense? Dave Brown or our awful coaching/leadership situation? Jay Rosehill or the fact that Holmgren gave him an absurd contract? I dont remember people getting their panties in a bunch when we were winning with richards and carter or any other eras before that. Again, were here now because of absolutely awful management. homer gambled with Bryzgalov at Sniders command, and he absolutely shit the bed when Pronger got hurt. Management and ownership overreact way too much and rely too much on huge free agency signings to build their teams.

          How do you know Downie will not go back to being the Downie of old? Tampa and Colorado don’t play ‘Flyer Hockey’. The culture problem is the front office and the style of play that the Flyers have played forever. The whole ‘formula’ has finally worn out as the game has changed. What players have come here, either free agent or farm system, and have gotten better? Why is Giroux the guy we couldn’t get enough of just a few years ago a guy we’re ripping now? And it’s not just him.

    The crossing broad logo should be a play off of abbey road: 4 guys with beer helmets, cheesesteaks and foam fingers crossing broad street in each of the 4 jerseys with the stadiums and/or skyline in the background.

    This new one is just plain weird. Why is the sign sideways? Did a septa bus hit it?And is it supposed to be on an angle so as to suggest some sort of perspective/depth? Again, if youre doing that, use an actual road or something. And lets not start in on the text. It worked on the old logo, but each word sitting there on its own with only the sign thats in the foreground (background?) just looks like something that belongs on an archived geocities web page from the early 2000s. Im shocked that an apple fan would let this kind of design be their logo. Tisk tisk.

    Bob, you’re so fucking clueless bro. Downie had 3 minor penalties in 11 games with Colorado. He’s not the same penalty taking moron he used to be.
    I do agree with you on one point, the flyers blow. But Downie is an upgrade from Talbot AND his contract expires. Wth all the bad contracts they have (Simmonds, Hartnell, etc) they need to find relief somewhere. Talbot had one good year.

    • Bob November 7, 2013 at 11:52 pm

      He only had three minors in 11 games with Colorado and he’s had one major already here in 1 game! (Call me when he can play again too.) It’s the style of play here. He will have more penalties here because of that. I’m not believing ‘he sucked when he was here but he’s better now that he’s been away’. Why would he getter better playing for someone else anyway? Cuz the style of play here sucks! Oh yeah, relief’s in the men’s room.

    So the Flyers need a fork stuck in them, season is over. Anyway, I came here to bash “Mikey Miss” from 97.5 the fanatic. This liberal crybaby has now changed from whining about Riley Cooper to a player from the Dolphins. Why in the hell would Philly fans want to hear about the Dolphins all week? That franchise has zero impact on us and is irrelevant. This clown really needs to be shut off

      As if we don’t have enough to talk about here in Philly with 3 sports teams in season. Agreed, Martin/Incognito isn’t directly affecting this town at all.

      Mikey Miss loves debating moral character of athletes. Honestly I’m not sure why he isn’t spending 2 full weeks solely on Incognito and his use of the “n word”?

      There’s so many double standards with this guy. Loves to rip these athletes but at the same time, when he caused a shit-storm of his own by using terrible judgement and calling Michelle Beadle fat, he makes that a non-story. That should have been covered for 2 weeks. Instead he covers it up with “she’s cute as hell. I just thought in that particular moment…” Loved seeing the national people put that little creep in his place.

      Also his “Giselle” impersonations are racist and highly offensive yet he’s sensitive when it comes to slurs or the Redskins name?!

      He needs to lose his dumb game lately where he asks the caller stupid trivia “qualifying questions” like “how does a snake hear?”

      Also he needs to drop the shoe shine dope. That little hockey dork washes Miss’s feet. If Mikey Miss wants to man up, get someone in the booth who will challenge everything. That would be entertaining but Mikey Miss has such a huge ego that he’s 97.5 and probably Phillys go-to sports radio host that they couldn’t fit anyone else in the booth with that colossal head of his. Even the shoe shine boy producer isn’t actually in the room with him

        The reason shoe shine boy doesn’t challenge him is that he seems to be somewhat slow. Mike Miss seems to select producers who have the IQ of a bar rag (see shawn brace) so that he appears to be an intellectual. I used to like this show years ago but his constant diversions from Philly sports into social and political discussions are making me shut it off.
