Discussion in 'Philadelphia Flyers' started by MiamiScreamingEagles, Jan 12, 2013.
wow. that's what they are doing? that's pretty ****ing pathetic. what a bunch of crap. Wow! practice open to the public that's ****ing huge deal. cause like its not always open to the public any other time. truly embarrassing. I thought they were better than that. look at the other teams around the league and what they are doing. truly pathetic
The team's release says "Wednesday, January 16 beginning at 11:30 p.m." That probably should be a.m. unless it is some midnight thing.
Lmao, cancel half of the season and this is how they say "I'm sorry"
Oh well, winning a cup is apology enough for me. I'd settle for that.
This is what happens when you in a region where your team is a guaranteed sell out every game
pens giving half off food and merch. we'll give out free practice to the public....oh wait they already do that. sweet!
Cry about it. You aren't entitled to anything
Flyers don't need to do anything. They gotta keep the interns busy though. What are you going to do, quit hockey? Someone else will take your spot. That's the hard truth.
the NHL isn't in the greatest position to do anything that compromises their fans/exposure
That is only a danger is the non traditional hockey markets. Philly is the same as Montreal, Toronto, NY. If you give up your seats, there will be a stampede of about 2000 guys wanting to buy them.
Actually the Pens are giving away FREE hot dogs, hamburgers and soda for their first 4 games and 50% of all merch.
Screw them. They're just worried the bandwagoners could walk away.
I heard the Kings gave like 1 mil to city charities or something. I would much prefer that to what the Flyers and Pens are doing.
Why Haddonfield... on a Tuesday?
RT @billmeltzer: No one has ever seen SkateZone this mobbed before, even during playoffs.
It's only an issue for teams who need the brownie points. Flyers aren't one of those teams. They grace you with their presence, not beg for attention.
Yep. I am just happy its Game On!
Aren't there regularly open practices that are free? It's lame either way. I don't mind that they're not doing anything special to "win back the fans," but advertising it like they are pisses me off.
They are all free and you can just show up to any practice
does that make it okay though? the NHL is barely even accepted as a major sport in the US anymore. just because fans in major markets keep going back doesnt mean that lockouts should be something we accept as part of being a hockey fan.
and i love how when the penguins do something nice it is because they need to keep their bandwagon fans
By tickets sold, yes. There were more than a handful of games where the building wasn't full the last few years.
Apparently not in Ottawa:
