flyer hockey: dump the puck in the corner on a break away. problem, just like how klatt was more popular then lindros. flyers culture sucks.
Sat., 10/12/13 - 02:19 AM
i have zero interest in broad street bullies. almost 40 years later...nothing. goon culture, muck and grind. get over yourselves. move into the 21st century. lose the fighting, lose the goons who run the flyers. you know, it is not wrong to score goals and skate well. THAT is hockey. homer, chief, hexie: all meatheads who long for some eddie shore hockey, eh.

ya' know, dude, everyone wants to "win". why do you deserve to "win". does not everyone want to win? so, I say, "go f yourself."

at this point, i'd rather bynum, philly legend-for-a-day, stay out and let this group of support players "earn" the 8th pick. sign a legit big time center or power forward with cartilage in his knees and give it go next year.

could be all long-term thinking. address knee issues know for bright tomorrow. i'm also thinking this could be just knee issues.
they look good without him. i hope he is just being cautious and when he returns, he and sixers will dominate. team to beat in the east. run at the championship. deep, talented, defensive minded...whoa, sixers could be good.

benefit of buying out kapono? his contract expires at end of season. are they just saving 1/3 of his salary for their books? this has no impact on cap space or product on floor, so why do we keep hearing about it. it is really only relevant to OTHER teams.
its like writers are trying to act as if sixers ARE active with roster.
disappointing day. if no good deal was out there, then agree to status quo, ASSUMING that changes will come off season. but as far as now, this has taken the wind out of my sixers' sails.
Thu., 02/24/11 - 15:25 PM
do not give a flying rats butt if they buy out kapono. that possible "move" is the equivalent of the team changing dsl providers for their offices.
i suppose inactivity means real moves will come off-season. right? please? beuler?

and. since when did making the playoffs and the team getting a "taste" of success matter to the sixers? they have made the playoffs a few recent years with absolutely zero carry-over to the next year.
this isn't the nfl or mlb, in the nba not only is it easy to make the playoffs, the last ranked playoff team is actually BELOW AVERAGE! 16/30.

Sun., 02/20/11 - 10:59 AM
well put. they are full of it. the other factor never mentioned is the value of the teams themselves. their values increase by huge margins.
buy a team for $500Million, sell in 10 years for $1Billion. but they will argue that they lost money in operating expenses each year (which actually isn't even true in the case of the NFL). if you buy a house for $250,000 and sell it for $500,000 five years later, do you complain that the house didn't "earn" money for you each year in income? of course not. the owners are lying.

the times, they are a'samein'
i've heard talk that the prospect of sixers making a few bucks in playoffs (most likely a losing round) is too much to jeopardize by trading iggy, etc.
this team is promising and i am on board, but ONLY as the prelude to a new-look sixers with ANY prospect of long term success. How, pray tell, will the sixers ever compete for real success? a few more mid-1st round draft picks and a trade of songala?
i, personally, don't care if comcast or ed snider makes any money, but i do want the sixers to be a contender.
chance of my continued interest in the sixers with no change in personnel?...1%

absurd. howard is the man, and he will end up with 600+ homes and land in the hall of fame.

very clever retort. so, if hockey DID outlaw fighting, YOU wouldn't complain? you wouldn't WHINE about how your sport is being played in a way that you don't prefer.
love it or leave it? i'll stay, thank you and voice my opinions, whether YOU like it or not.
Mon., 02/14/11 - 12:56 PM
fighting in hockey is an embarrasment. completely unrelated to the normal game and "allowed" by refs, then suddenly "not allowed" after the goons go at each other for a while.
life long hockey player and fan, and it is time to move to the 21st century.

"At a minimum, the Sixers would have to make a desperation gambit and give swingman Andre Iguodala away below market value in the slight hope that they can get lucky with a free-agent superstar or impact draft pick in the next offseason or two."
normally a smallwood fan, but that is some weak stuff. why is this the choice? why not trade him for actual value and fill a real need at center? seems quite logical to me. he has to go. please. we need something different. we are sixers fans for chrissakes. we've been sitting thru this nonsense for years without any real future. we need this team to have someone other than iguadala be our best player. we simply need it. ok?

oh right, iguadala. why haven't we traded him yet? when's the deadline? time to move on. i just wish he'd put up a couple 20 point games so some team might just get a little amped and think he MAY JUST BE a number 1 threat. just dreaming.

lack of mid-range game for entire NBA is shocking. why on earth wouldn't someone like iguadala or turner, or anyone, practice, practice, practice their shot until they are good at it. 2 point shot is better than brick 3-pointer.
Wed., 01/05/11 - 14:01 PM
well, it is "shooting" guard, not "making shots" guard.
we are good at shooting the ball, just not so good at it going in.

entire roster needs a good starting over. i hope that they are just evaluating and making decisions about who happens to stay and go. the roster has no balance the team is too random. the question is when and who? well, i hope iguadala is gone, i'm over this dude. let him do his thing elsewhere. he just isn't a star, but he insist on trying to be one. reshuffle the deck. really, no one should be untouchable.

PLEASE! not another year or sucking at start, then bust-ass to win 37 games, get middle type draft pick, and still essentially suck for years to come. trade iggy for young guy and bad contract. our team is not a team. it is a collection of players, some of whom are actually young and talented. but, c'mon. no shooting guard, two starting small forwards, no room for speights. team and mangagment are so very weak.
Wed., 02/17/10 - 17:03 PM
tired of sixers trying to "win now", when winning now is almost impossible. For years after the 2001 finals run, Billy King and Larry Brown kept trying to "win now", only to fade farther and farther from the top. Just when King finally started to plan for the LONG TERM, he was fired. Now, we got, Mr. Middle Managment (Ed Stefanski) and, he too is trying to win now to save their jobs. Him and Eddie Jordan. Note to Sixers owners: fans do not care about the Eds jobs, we want a good baskeball team. FUTURE, FUTURE, FUTURE.

getting old: First half of season the team SUCKS, SUCKS, SUCKS (and positions themselves for a legit draftpick). Second half of season the team begins to gel a bit and finishes near .500 by finally beating crappy teams (most of which are trowing games for a legit draft pick (see above)). Sixers end up with no-playoff run and mediocre draft position. Next year? same nonsense?

hater. haters. haters. part II. hamels will continue to be a top flight pitcher. he is 25! he struggled this year. the year before he was World Series MVP. have any of you followed baseball before? steve carlton LOST 20 GAMES the year after his spectacular '72 season. why must philly be SO negative? so desperate to feel wronged? hamels will win 20 games some season. Halladay, Hamels, Happ. not bad for the next 4 years.
Wed., 12/16/09 - 00:04 AM
haters. haters. haters. last summer everone was all "whatever it takes to get halladay!". now, its "i'm concerned about our future." nonsense. good deal. having halladay for 4+ years at a good price is...well, priceless. he may be the best pitcher in baseball (and has been for several years). and they made the move knowing that an extention was likely, and this has turned out to be true. they moved prospects, and got others. don't be fooled by rankings from beginning of last year. for minor leaguers, one year is a lifetime and i'm sure they've all moved up/down since then. smart fine-tuning by Amaro. we're are set for 4 years of world series runs.

I am so sick of your SIMPLETON argument that since attendence is up, no one cares about steroid use in baseball. I do. I hate it. I think it is cheating and cheating has not place in any contest. Yet, I still am a baseball/phillies fan. i've been one my whole life. by your logic, i should no longer like baseball or the phillies because some players have cheated. so disconnected from actual fans and players. a hack is what you are.
