    This is where is gets scary,,,, The Dancing Monkey Brothers are getting restless and when they both get involved, that's when captains get traded !

    It really is baffling. Nothing wrong with what he said. The pieces are there to be a solid team, and they are simply not performing.

    I've never seen a team underperform as badly as the current iteration of the Flyers. It's one thing to suck; it's quite another to play this far below your potential.

    It is crazy that this team's bread and butter was the power play last year and scoring was pretty standard, but now I watch games wondering if they will be shut out

    They'll snap out of it eventually, but I hope it won't be too late or at too high a cost (Couturier)

    People can say what they want about the man, but at least Snider gives a damn about this club. He could be like other owners and sit silent, but I'm glad he cares and he's not afraid to say things. Yeah, he's been a little bit too hands on at times, but it's not as if he's Al Davis hands on.

    Basically this. Even though we may hate Snider for certain things, but he literally has no control (right now) over how bad they look.

    Yeah, he's right. It seriously makes no sense at all.

    They must wait it out. They must not trade anyone. The roster is really good. And why were Giroux and Lecavalier separated last night? They need to be on the same line all the time.

    I am sure Snider saw a lot worse when he was fighting for the North during the Civil War

    He's approaching Al Davis territory. He's not there yet, but he's not far off.

    Agree with Snider that i've never seen anything this bad. Players just seem to forget how to score or control the puck. But I thought they looked this bad 5-5 last year. Even if the PP was very good. It seems puck pressure by the opposition makes them completely ineffective.

    his giving a damn:
    “We don't rebuild, we retoolâ€
    "We don't even know what rebuilding is"
    "We don't need a fresh perspective"

    is largely responsible for the mess that this team and franchise is in

    I agree 100%...........Folks are still blaming our D when we score 2 goals or less in 14 out of 15 games ? FERGETABOUTIT ! We have proven potential who just are not scoring like they once did.They are gripping their sticks waaaaaaaaaaaaaay to tight, need to be loooooooooooooose and not afraid to be loose !

    LOL ! My favorite Al Davis quote of all time is when asked what type of player makes a good Oakland Raider ? He replied " a player that's one step out of prison " . We need some of that mentality, players not afraid to HIT ! and hit Hard !

    I think the Snid is up to something.... he will demand a shake up - with the rumours out of EDM, that could happen? MacT wanted to make a bold move.... both teams chance to shake up.

    We all know the last time he was pissed - Bryz came knocking....

    They haven't been good since 2012. But yes they were good then.

    At this point every GM in the league knows we're desperate. So trades wont be easy until the deadline.

    Ed acts like people don't call for his head. He's run out of people to blame, and he only has one more person to go before he forced to take blame.

    Al Davis supplied some good laughs over the years for me from a safe distance, I guess this is karma.

    This team will not win a championship until Ed steps down
