As a philly sports fan from philadlephia, that absolutely sickens me. i hate this city sometimes

I'm not a huge hockey person, but it looks like a regular hockey fight. The refs let the players wail on each other for a short time, got involved when one went on the ice, and tried to keep the teams from getting involved.

The screaming asstard fans, however...

The Caps goalie is an illustration of how not embracing the inevitable violence that is approaching puts you at a severe disadvantage.

Stay classy, Philly fan. What a retard.

But I had to laugh because it's been awhile since I've seen a black hockey player in the NHL highlights, so the one I see is a Flyers goalie instigating a fight. So that was the dude attacking the other goalie who didn't want to fight? Pretty shameful. Should have just stayed in his own end.

Emery loves fighting.  Nearly every time i've seen him get into one, he's grinning from ear to ear, just loving it.

Is it just me, or did the ref let the goalie fight go on way too long?

When one guy is on his knees and getting punched in the face, that's kind of it, isn't it?

Who took the video? Special Ed?

Well it was actually filmed in landscape mode which is a nice surprise. Plus we don't know for certain if the person screaming like a bloodthirsty retard is the cameraman.

No suspension for Emery either. So a split second play at 100 mph where your shoulder goes too high and you inadvertantly hit someones head gets you fined and suspended. But intentional repeated shots to the head of a guy that said he wanted no part of a fight is no problem. Way to go NHL.
 
2013-11-03 09:57:27 AM  
That was just as dignified as I expected.

Let's all record this on our phones instead of watching it. It's not like it's being filmed for TV or anything.

He knows 4 words! I guess that's enough for in depth.

Philly fan............

It was a win-win situation for both teams, as Philadelphia got to burn some excess energy, and the Caps got to go home with a 7-0 victory.

That would be considered erudite for a Flyers fan, if they knew the word.

THIS. A thousand times this. You see it all the time, people in front row seats 2 feet from the action viewing it through a tiny little screen. All so they can post it on Facebook and show everyone that they were there...without actually taking in the experience of being there.

I'd say it was "kids these days", but it was more likely a 40 year old.

He's a trained boxer. He never even let Holtby take off his gloves. Emery is a grade A asstard.

Hockey could definitely use more of these. That was awesome. Hell, I'd like to see more fights in every sport. Football would be much better if they let a couple of guys settle it with their fists from time to time.

Yes.
Someone. Sometime. He will get his comeuppance.

I daresay they earned all the "win" they got.out of it, and deservedly so.

Get yourself stomped after the cliche "I didn't like that clean hit" fight, then Emery took it upon himself at Holmgren's request  to start madness with your skill guy out on the ice.

Bravo Philly!

I feel bad for real Flyers fans who aren't bloodlust jock a-holes. This team was so good a few years ago... what happened?
 
2013-11-03 12:57:46 PM  
This was the most disgusting spectacle I have ever seen in a Philadelphia sports arena, and that's saying something.

"He didn't want a fight, but I basically said, 'Protect yourself,'"

I love that Emery even admits it and he doesn't get a suspension.  What a load of shiat.

Nothing in the CBA to allow it. You can give him penalties (didn't he get 29 minutes). You can give him a game misconduct.

But there really isn't any further punishment allowed for a goalie whaling on someone who doesn't want to fight.

Might be this time next year but not now.

Sometimes the cops step in.  That'd be kinda funny, charge Emery with assault.

Isn't there a rule in the NHL that prohibits teams from showing replays of fights on the Jumbotron?  I seem to remember announcers stating something to that effect last season.  And Philly shows them OVER AND OVER because, let's face it, it's all this city is about.  You can crush them during the game, but as long as they get their punches in, they go home happy.

Remember Philly sports fans, ROCKY WASN'T REAL.

If Rocky wasn't real, why did Philadelphia build a statue in his honor? Hmmm?????

Anddddd....John Scott still only got 7 games for the Matt Cooke-esq hit on Ericksson.

Where is your sack, Shanny?

/probably still resting on Brett Hull's chin

That's the most aggravating part of this whole mess: if not for Emery's beat-all farktardery, the most-viewed highlights from that game would have been this three-pack.

/trade you Ward for Desharnais, Caps fans?
