We will be serving crow today. I already had my helping this morning, but now, it’s time for the rest of the local media to eat theirs as the Flyers have pulled themselves from the depths to earn a playoff spot. Up next, Sam Carchidi.

Giroux Snubs Media After Another Loss, November 7:

Whatever the reason, the Flyers’ captain walked out of the WFC and refused to talk to the media after the Flyers fell to 4-10-1.

Instead, the captain left it up to his teammates to explain another dreadful performance, one in which they barely tested 41-year-old goalie Martin Brodeur.

Good captains don’t do that.

Forget about his struggles this season (zero goals, minus-11) on the ice _ struggles that could be connected to his preseason finger surgery after a bizarre golf accident.

Every player goes through a slump. That’s just the nature of the game. It happens.

But there’s no excuse for making your teammates be your mouthpiece.


Reader Gabe and his son, who prefers his pretzel over crow, laugh at you, Mr. Sam:

    Carchidi has that unmistakable “I just got busted on How to Catch a Predator” look going on in that pic.

    Sammy C brings nothing to the table except ratting on 23 year old flyers for acting like 23 year old’s by partying in center city with the finest broads in the area and “picking from the herd.” Sammy C doesn’t know one thing about “picking from the herd” and resents the young guys on the Flyers for being able to do so.

      He’s also always the first reporter to tweet a goal during the game. Literally every time, every game. He’s like that annoying kid in school that always had to be done first.
