Philadelphia Flyers

Guest post of the week by Nestor Nielsen:

I am a huge Philadelphia Flyers fan, so needless to say I was hugely disappointed when Danny Briere was suspended three games for laying the wood on some punk Frans Nielson of the New York Islanders. This is a disturbing trend because my Philly boys are known for toughness, and the nancy boy commissioner Gary Bettman is trying to crack down on the crosschecking and bad boy style of hockey for some reason, even as he encourages fighting and rough play of the legal kind. Like how is my boy supposed to know when to say when? Seems a little contradictory to me, all this encouraging of violence and discouragement of crosschecking.

All of this started when I was watching a game on my expert satellite TV between the aforementioned Islanders and the best team in the history of the world, the Philadelphia Flyers. Anyone who watches the Flyers knows that are awesome and have kick butt colors and will beat your brains out and give you H-E double hockey sticks. So when Frans got laid out it was no surprise, and the crowd cheered and even Islanders fans left the game with renewed respect for Philly. Then the suspensions happened, and now everyone's angry. Seriously Bettman, quit micro-managing the sport.
