Lack of goals, effort baffles Snider

Hey Claude, let me tell you why they (we.....I was there) were booing. The boos were a result of guys standing around, watching the puck. The boos were a result of NO ONE from the Flyers hitting the Devils. With the exception of a near miss by Rinaldo, those good old dasher boards never rattled. The boos were a result of a power play that looked more like a penalty kill. The Devils seemed to thrive when the Flyers had he PP. the boos were the result of having to pay a face-value $165.00 per seat, $8.50 for a beer, and $16.00 to park a car, only to see a tremendous lack of effort and execution from players who have had ample time to straighten things out. You are 15 games into the regular season. The coach has already been fired and replaced. How much longer is it going to take to finally start playing as a team and as professionals?
Give the effort 100% of the time during the game, as individuals and as a team. You won't eliminate all of the booing (this is Philly, and we are tough on players), but you will win back some of us regular,die-hard flyers fans.
Scoring a goal might help too!
Camden Council advances supermarket plan
- 1 out of 6 total comment(s)

No one wants to build a supermarket due to the huge financial liabilities forecasted when certain critical elements are studied. First and foremost, security is the biggest concern. If one were able to get "true" numbers from CPD, it would be found that businesses on the Route 30 corridor are constantly getting robbed, many with violence used on the victims. The notion of this market getting used by those passing through the city are ridiculous. Who in their right mind would pull in just to grab a few things, knowing that your safety to and from the store is in peril. The amount of retail and employee theft are also factors that have delayed building such a business in Camden.
This is a losing proposition for whoever funds it. Since it is the taxpayers losing out, I would say no to this project.

I'd love to see Gagne finish as a flyer. That said, if Homlgren is wrong for what he did, then what does it say for that guy Cleary from Detroit? He told the flyers yes, then changed his mind AT THE LAST MINUTE, and all is ok?
It's not "the business", it is A business. Plain and simple.

Want to talk about complete opposites.....Davies, a hard working former plumber now turned policeman, contributing to society in many positive ways. Then you have ood old' Mr. Torres. Arriving in our great country from Puerto Rico in '05, he happens to quickly land himself in prison, where he stays much of the time he is here.
You tell me which person here means more to society? The unfortunate part is we as taxpayers will make sure Torres gets his proper defense at trial, make sure he is treated "humanely" while incarcerated, and after his likely conviction, he will be sent to a correctional facility where he I'll probably have more of the fingers things in life than he did when h was on the street.
There has to be a better way of dealing with such "open and shut" cases like this one. I say take him out back, stick a .45 into his ribcage, and let him have a taste of his own medicine. We may never cure the ills of our society, but at least we can make sure the perps understand first-hand exactly that they will reap what they sow. Nothing more, nothing less.

This guy Mathueson does whatever George Norcross tells him to do. Norcross also has Christie in his pocket. Until the Federal Government intercedes with a thorough and honest investigation, the DRPA will continue to act as a personal debit card for the Dems. Nepotism, favoritism, and the distribution of contracts for services and goods that have ABSOLUTELY nothing to do operating bridges and trains will continue to rule the day. And each time we ride the speed line or cross a bridge, remember that the ridiculous amount of money you pay goes to an authority that does not have your best interests in mind.
Oh, and in the meantime the bridges and related roadways continue to deteriorate and will eventually reach that point of no return. That's when the Feds will jump in.

Funny how Thomson never fails to give quotes or use buzz words/phrases as if he was a politician up for reelection. Oh wait.........I get it! he is Camden's version of Michael Chitwood. Always ready for that quote or photo op.
Perhaps he would garner more respect from those men and women who work with him if he would take similar stances with trying to rid Camden of the thugs who attack the citizenry (and his own officers) with "real" weapons, not just words.

What idiot came up with the 12-12 shift? Why not 7-7 or something similar. Have you ever tried staying up all night and then staying awake after the sun comes up? It has to be extremely difficult! I know many policeman who work 12 hour shifts, but none of them work a 12-12.
Is assignment to this shift a punitive action from superiors?

Let's see what the say and do when the crime statistics come in at the end of the year. Right now, they've manipulated the stats to reflect success. True success isn't measured with crime rates, it's measured in large part by how safe the residents feel. So let's ask....do the residents feel safer? Sounds like in Parkside and Fairview might. However, once there is a spike in homicides or shootings in, let's say North Camden, and those foot patrols get redirected.....what do you think will happen in the areas where the cops come from?
This is nothing more than a shell game. Thomson will put the patrols where the politicians tell him to. Downtown, Parkside (Redd's home base) Cooper Hospital. Everyone else is own their own.

Can you imagine a white mayor speaking out against blacks, while on city (hall) property? If we had a white mayor, would he have stood up and spoke out against Charles Rangel, an elected official who recently went on record calling whites "crackers"? I dare say that if a white mayor had stood up and spoke out against the words of Rangel, he would've been denounced nation-wide by the main-stream media as a race baiter. Or how about a white mayor speaking out against the likes of Sharpton or Jackson, when they get up on their soapboxes?
There is such a double standard in this country.
Riley Cooper, move on over!

Just to make it clear, Riley Cooper, a white football player who, by the injury to Jeremy Macklin, MIGHT have a chance to make this football team spews out an offensive racial slur while obviously intoxicated. His actions are plastered all over the mainstream media, top stories on ESPN, ABC News etc. Charles Rangel, an ELECTED official representing folks in our nation's Capitol, makes an equally offensive remark, while in control of all of his faculties (not to justify Cooper's remark, I'm just trying to put all the facts on the table) and NOTHING is said about it!
Tell me, when both instances are reviewed, whose remark has the potential for doing the most harm? A mediocre football player who likely would've had trouble making the roster, or an elected official who has significant national political clout and has voting power on laws and bills.
The fact that Rangel can get away with this shows to me that it isn't about the words, or intent. It's about stirring the anti-black racial pot. The question that rings loud for me is......does the pot actually have anything in it, or is it nearly empty and we as a society are continuing to provide a failing race with a built in excuses for their obvious repeated failures? how long does this madness continue before someone puts an end to it?

I wonder what your comments were after the OJ Simpson trial? Did you have such disdain for the judicial system when the system worked in favor of the black race (calling it the way I saw it)? That jury heard MONTHS of testimony, yet returned a verdict within an hour of beginning deliberations. We're there any protests, any marches, any calls for nation-wide action?
You tell us.

Of the 67 homicides last year in Camden, how many we're white killing black? Of this same number how many we're black killing white? I don't have the exact number, however I know there were more than a few. Were there any remarks from local leaders voicing their displeasure or even offering an opinion? No. Were there any marches protesting the killings of whites by blacks? No. Any remarks, calls for justice, or even a singular comment from elected leaders on the state level? No.
In 2001, Christine Eberle was kidnapped, raped and murdered by 2 of Camden's finest. Just a quick example of how black on white crime goes unnoticed and just washed away by the media. There weren't any calls for marches, for protests, for anything at all. We as a nation accept the fact that black on white crime is just expected, while whenever the situation is reversed, the black political leaders and the leeches like Sharpton and Jackson use them as a political soap box.
It's sad to say this, but fifty years from now, nothing will have changed. Blacks will still be committing crimes at a much higher percentage than other races, but when they become victims of crime, it'll be beaten down our throats time and again.

Camden continues to use Bowman and Co for their audits, despite the fact that the state has advised against municipal govts hiring the same auditors over and over again. The question begs as to why? Is it because King George has his hand deep in the pockets of Bowman and Co? Is it because Bowman knows how to write the audit report in such a way as to mask all of the inconsistencies? Is it because any other reputable auditing firm would disclose just how screwed up the administration is in Camden?
In a private corporation with similar issues, the administrators would be shown the door if not thrown in the klink. however, we are talking Camden City and Camden County where the Dems rule, and NO ONE ver is held accountable for their actions (or inactions). People, the time has come to get out!!!

Why is it that the Inqy never publishes the description of suspect(s) when reporting on crime? As a reader, or as someone who visits or resides near where these crimes occur, it'd be nice to know to be on the lookout for a particular person or group. I can't imagine why the media doesn't report suspects descriptions (wry smile inserted).

It's all a dog and pony show.....in a few months the deployment will be just as it was when it was CPD. I'm sure if the reporter digs a little bit he'll find a strong connection between Bruno and Bill Tambusi, a political confidant of King George. Just goes to show that this new Metro division will become the new breeding ground for political hiring and patronage. Good luck Camden County residents, you'll be paying for this for many years to come.

Because that's what they do. They do it every day, and never complain. And they do it when they're 50 years old because so many people out there have screamed and hollered about their (and cops too) pension systems allowing them to retire too young. With the way the city handles post-retirement benefits, these guys have to work well beyond what the average person thinks they should.

The problem as I see it is this guy learned the process of suing for damages from a system that encourages such actions. Forget te demographics and accusations for a minute, and look at the the actions of the accused. Lose your job because of a theft allegation, and then his first response? Blame it on race (in this case, the ever-guilty Whitey). How about the accused putting all of his time/effort into fighting the charges? There's no need to. Some scumbag lawyer took the case and now lets blame whitey. It's an epidemic in this country. Is there any wonder why commercials running all day long (weekdays) promote one ambulance-chasing law firm after another? Look at the target audience!!! The hard working Joes are busting their butts, and the poor, wrongly accused victims of a society squarely against the disenfranchised are sitting at home watching TV, playing play station, and sleeping til noon.

Here it comes folks, we're seeing a second-coming of the old Bill Simon -Camden County Sheriffs Department days where members were REQUIRED to buy political affairs tickets, work polling places, hang political signs, and do any other task demanded of them by the Dems. They are building an army, led by King George himself, to continue the stranglehold on Camden County. If you have money, buy as much property as you can in and around the new Taj Mahal of Camden...lthe new Cooper Hospital Medical School. Next to Fort Knox, it'll be the most protected area in the United States. Every cop hired into this farce will be pulling shifts there.
Once again, the freeholders have shown their contempt for union contracts, and police in general. They are on a roll now. Lawnside, Gibbsboro, Chiselhurst, hold on tight. You're next!

That was June, now we're in March. Two questions.....if they had this video, why wait so long to release it. Secondly, why wasn't it classified as a homicide then, it seems like they had more evidence for than against being a crime.
Could it be that they were (are) trying to keep the number of recorded homicides down?

For those board members who changed their vote, you are hypocrites and cowards. You probably changed your vote in exchange for some cushy county job, or a promise for a county job for a friend or relative. For the residents of Camden City and Camden County, its once again an example of King George gets what King George wants. Susan Bass-Levin, a fine example of a triple-dipping leech on the public's dime, predicted after the first vote that, not only was this going to be re-voted on, but that it would pass. Is she a psychic? Doubt it. More like experienced in dealings with King George.
And once again, the public pays the price.
Phil Sheridan: Now it's Flyers touching third rail of fan relations

Let's face it. If a player works hard, plays hard, and accepts responsibility when he doesn't play well, Philly fans would cut him slack. The problem is that this guy Bryzgalov lets far too many soft goals go in and constantly puts the Flyers in a hole to start games. Just watch what happens when he lets a few soft goals in. Inevitably a teammate goes and retrieves the puck from the net and shoots it against the boards or down ice with extreme anger. Then after being pulled, this head case blames the paying folks for booing. I say this will go down in Flyers history as the worst FA pick up. Holmgren's biggest mistake by far.
Kevin Riordan: Norcross focuses on Camden

Kevin, you are my hero for taking on Norcross. Our local rag, the Courier Post, time and again fai
Ls to have the guts to write a negative word about him or his minions. However, I have to object to one thing you wrote.
"He's also correct that no single political party or individual is to blame for Camden's pain. The notion of Norcross as all-powerful puppet master or municipal micromanager is absurd."
How could you challenge him, yet conclude that it is "absurd" to think he is the "puppet master" in Camden County? I think those who truly know the inner workings of Camden County government would whole heartedly agree that the term "puppet master" absolutely applies to Norcross. He has final say on EVERYTHING that comes across the desks of the mayor and freeholders. He is the driving force on every political appointment that comes out of the Statehouse.
If you truly wanted to drive your point home, I wish you would have rethought that paragraph and told it like it really is.

Sorry Sklroy, I disagree. Is the intent of this article to debate the violation of civil rights of ALL citizens, or just that of minorities? I suppose, based on the tone of the posters here, that most see this as nothing more than an opportunity for Ms. Hall to make the issue more about race than the policy being legal.
Whether or not you, I, or anyone else believes this to be a sound policy, it has been upheld by the US Supreme Court as a valid tactic which can be used by law enforcement, provided certain strict guidelines are adhered to.

They booed because they just finished watching one of the best teams in the NHL blow a huge lead in the standings and lose their top ranking in their conference. They booed because, on average, they were paying well over $250 for a pair of seats only to watch this team struggle again. They booed because they are tired of watching what was a once potent offense (and power play) put another zero up on the scoreboard on home ice. They booed because this team looks old and tired. They booed because they have that right.

The way I read it, this woman gave an assignment to the students. The student in question completed the assignment, and the teacher felt it necessary to attack the student and her parents publicly on her blog. It seems obvious that this teacher is a typical Dem liberal, and felt it her responsibility to smash down anyone who has a negative opinion of Obama. Truth be told, it is an English class, and the speech should have been graded (and critiqued) on it's presentation, not subject matter. She should have lost her job, no question. BTW, I didn't read anywhere that the speech title was "Obama's Lies" as others here have posted.

"ONCE IN A LIFETIME OPPORTUNITY"? It's a shame that this kid sees his actions of interrupting a major league baseball game, endangering the lives of players, umpires, security, and police, and putting another negative blemish on the city as "AN OPPORTUNITY OF A LIFETIME". If this kid and his dad want to find other ways of making good use of opportunities, try devoting some of their spare time to public service. Perhaps forgoing college and entering the military. He can run all he wants in boot camp. The kid looks like he needs some pointers on knowing right and wrong. There are many really good "opportunities of a lifetime" out there for him to look into. Also, the cop was absolutely right in putting this kid down. Let that serve as a lesson to everyone to stay off the field.

Anyone else see a common thread with violent crime throughout the country? Watch the news, read the newspapers, or better yet, watch the FIRST 48 television show. See what the results of almost everyone of the murder investigations are. Wake up America. Call me a racist if you will, but it seems to me that young black males are behind almost all of the violent crime in the country. The real question is what the heck can be done about it?
