Here’s the Best Video of the Fight in Section 209

Kyle Scott - April 30, 2014

Taken from a Facebook post by someone involved in or close to the fight, here’s the best video of the melee in section 209 last night. There are no good guys here. We have to consider the accounts which described Rangers fans as provoking the fight all night long. But what we see here is just a whole bunch of idiots on both sides.

Security tried to remove the Rangers fans, peacefully, but they resisted. That caused things to escalate and eventually led to a Flyers fan tossing a cup. For about 10 seconds the camera lost the action, so it’s hard to tell who threw the first punch. But from what we can see, T.J. Oshie didn’t fare so well and Matt Read threw more punches than he has in three years on the ice.

And who’s the dude who keeps yelling, “TURN DOWN FOR WHAT!” Pipe down, man. I’m trying to watch the game fight.

Another one after the jump.

    This drives me nuts! Lazy media. Every single time the Philly fans do something stupid, the media brings up all the times the fans do something stupid. It’s almost like we are going to have to stop doing stupid things.

    Fights are sure different these days.

    A fight breaks out now, and everyone immediately breaks out their smartphones.

    I’ve seen worse in a concession line at a Dodgers game. Just saying. 😉

    Please, make an edit of this video w/ Lil Jon’s “Turn Down for What” playing!

  • The Pickle Man April 30, 2014 at 10:21 am

    there are no winners in a horrible scene like this

    • T-Bone April 30, 2014 at 10:34 am

      No… But there are 4 distinct losers.

  • MDur April 30, 2014 at 10:24 am

    That video didn’t catch what those idiots were doing for 10 minutes straight to the Flyers fans by them…and it also cut off before they got rocked on their way down the steps.

    The kid that w/ the backwards hat was the main instigator…and I saw him with security walking out the doors – he got his friends beat up and looked untagged at the door.

    I hate seeing the BS fights – but these guys were asking for it…and they’re dumb asses for not letting the security protect them.
    If it didn’t happen in the stands, it was going to happen in the parking lot…they pushed people too far.

  • Bernie from Broommall's Cock April 30, 2014 at 10:24 am

    You come into our house you gonna get your behind kicked.

    Fuck the rangers

  • DmitriYushkevich April 30, 2014 at 10:24 am

    the first kid security grabbed in the grey backwards hat was instigating & provoking people all night.

    i think he got out of there while he’s friends took the blame.

  • Level Levi April 30, 2014 at 10:26 am

    Dirtballs all-around.

  • Informed April 30, 2014 at 10:27 am

    kyle, how can you piss and moan continually about our perceived national reputation but then go ahead and promote an incident like last night. and yes, you are promoting it as you have 3 articles already today devoted to this event. you can just justify it all you want with your percentages of fault (rangers fan 80%/flyers fan 20%.) however, at the end of the day, this video is simply white trash being white trash no matter how you slice it. we are talking “grown” men fist fighting to protect their “turf” and their “rep!” what a joke! last i checked, no flyers, eagles, or phillies came to my job or any other fan’s job to fight for us. yet, these tools feel compelled to risk their careers and futures because to rep their team passion! haha, assholes!

    • Marvin Monroe April 30, 2014 at 10:43 am

      He is posting articles about in an effort to end fan-on-fan violence. Like when he ended gang violence by posting 12 stories a day about made-up gang connections for Desean Jackson.

  • Candy from the Oak April 30, 2014 at 10:29 am

    I bet if simmonds didn’t have that game those Delco dirt balls wouldnt be acting black

  • Game 7 April 30, 2014 at 10:30 am

    Check out Suede money in the middle of everything. Best security guard in the building. He was trying to get the rag fans out before this all went down, but they made their bed.

  • John Kerry April 30, 2014 at 10:34 am

    I’d like to see those pussy New Yorkers pull that shit off at the Devon Horse Show, they’d be leaving in bodybags

  • Section 209 fan April 30, 2014 at 10:34 am

    I was in the very last row in sect 209…the kid with the backward hat was being a prick all night. He started everything, his friends were dicks too, I hate seeing this crap but I’m in my 40s and I wanted to smack these clowns too

  • MM April 30, 2014 at 10:37 am

    Here’s what i saw, backwards hat guy? Respect!!! you saw a possible assbeatin’ on the horizon and finished your beer in preparation, excellent. Saw a dude with a Forsberg jersey, wtf dude. Saw a dude pummelling a fat rags fan with his ass crack hanging out, that’s sexy. Saw some security guards that went to high school with Ed Snider try to get a handle on it all, not gonna happen. Those rags fans could only afford one beer, one legitimate rags jersey and one scraggly playoff beard between them and if somebody could have pointed this out to them early on, this entire tragedy could have been avoided.

  • Informed is a dick April 30, 2014 at 10:42 am

    Does anyone else picture informed as a guy sitting in his study, surrounded by bookshelves filled with philosophical volumes ,wood panneling abounds, smoking a pipe and wearing a smoking jacket? His loyal elkhound at his feet. looking down on us all?

    • Informed April 30, 2014 at 10:58 am

      absolutely spot on! you totally nailed me! you should see my oak panels! however, there is one inaccuracy to what you wrote. only thing i am looking down on is the crown of your girlfriend’s head! she is a keeper! make sure you hold onto her!

      • Shitstain McFucknuckle April 30, 2014 at 11:19 am

        Informed has been posting here for years. Which tells you all you need to know. Anyone who maintains a screen name for years on an anonymous sports blog message board most likely has an inferiority complex, abandonment issues or both. If Bernie From Broomall could use a computer, you’d probably get the same result. It’s actually really sad if you stop to think about it. So give him a break, his life is probably empty, even though he’ll most likely respond to this by telling us the opposite.

        Hang in there, Informed! Try eHarmony.

  • Dan Hanratty April 30, 2014 at 11:42 am

    • TF April 30, 2014 at 12:23 pm

      this guy lol

  • Nobody April 30, 2014 at 11:51 am

    Really wish people would turn their phones sideways when taking videos so we can watch it in full screen.
    Perhaps Kyle should do a post that is a checklist of what to do when you can film a first hand account of something like this.

  • johnmatrix April 30, 2014 at 12:15 pm

    perfect reason to pay the extra 50$ and sit a few sections lower. dont have to deal with this bullshit. how the fuck are you supposed to take your kids to a game ever with this happening. in the 400 level of CPB this happened at every game i ever went to.

  • Rocky April 30, 2014 at 12:54 pm

    This is what you get in the nose bleed seats. A nose bleed for sure. If you are a true fan and want to see the game then shell out the bucks for the lower seats. The top seats are for the ones who decide “hey the Flyers are in the playoffs so lets go to a game” It makes me so mad that I shell out 17 thousand dollars for season tickets and come playoff time people sell them and get the people who just want a fun time. The Ranger fans definitely deserved to get their ass kicked when they were told to leave and did not. Bottom line, I had a Ranger guy near me and he was respectable and just wanted to watch his team. He paid for high dollar tickets and was surrounded by high dollar people. Respect gets respect. You act like those Ranger fans did in that level…well you see what they got!

  • Hypocrisy much? April 30, 2014 at 1:05 pm

    If a group of flyers fans got their asses kicked tonight in MSG, the same fucking morons that are on here saying “not in our house” would be bitching about how the rangers fans are all loser pussies and how they should just enjoy the game. Also, let’s not overlook the fact that kyle supposedly bemoans this behavior, but posts it the first chance she gets.

    • Rocky April 30, 2014 at 5:03 pm

      We are smart enough to keep our mouths shut in another home. Besides we are not stupid enough to pay the price of your high priced and low product tickets. Really, start crap is one thing but when security comes and you argue and refuse to leave…just stupid but then again…that is NY.

  • Peter Forsberg April 30, 2014 at 6:55 pm

    People in Philly still wear my jersey, eh?

    • Peter Forsberg isn't Canadian April 30, 2014 at 7:18 pm

      He doesn’t say “eh?”

  • jason April 30, 2014 at 10:21 pm

    Stay classy Philly.
