  1. There should be NO SIMULATION games…. There are PLENTY of Phillies classics from 2007-2012, Eagles comeback wins and Flyers classics with Richie, Pronger, Primeau, the Legion and Giroux!!! WTF… Not even toching on Sixers’ AI, Barkley and current roster… I don’t get it.

    1. Just because they may have originally aired the games doesn’t mean they can just re-broadcast at will. The rights with the leagues are stupidly complicated.

  2. Fartzy’s days are numbered. Tra gone and his name no longer on the 975 morning show.

  3. Why haven’t the Palestinians developed a successful economy???



    1. Joe Exotic would fit right in with the rest of the Mayfair white trash. The mullet is spot on

  4. Was lonely and drunk again last night. Feeling humiliated again. I recently learned about Israel being built by the US, so I completely changed my argument. Wasted life. Probation sucks. Prison sucked. I suck 😉

    Mom is disappointed.

    1. I love brown men. Whatchu up to Rowhome? I know your people … I’ve had plenty of men like you. Such tender lovers come from the Middle East. Delicious.

  5. I am triggered again. Completely unhinged.

    Plan on raging most of the day. Been hitting refresh since last night.

    If I learned anything in prison – I am worth 2 bags of barbecue chips. I earned that status.
    Probation and poverty sucks.

    Mom is humiliated.

  6. rowhome versus liberal arts degree has become stale. Can we get back to the Jackie Martling/Richard Pryor r@ci$m jokes already and kevins feet? or my faaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaavvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvooooooorrrrrrrrrrriiiiiiiittttttttttteeeeeeeeeeeeee pro wrestling.

  7. If you would watch Rachel Maddow like you’re supposed to you would understand. We tolerate all minorities. Even Islam, the most intolerant group on earth.

  8. What next? A simulated Stanley Cup for the Flyers?
    That is the only cup this disgusting franchise will ever win.

  9. That was just last year.

    You seem to know a lot about sports. Tell us more about the only cup they ever won.
