I know it's not a big deal, it'd just be nice to be able to listen to some hockey discussion during the day especially with the playoffs 3 GAMES AWAY. Cmon, if it was october you would hear nothing BUT Phillies.
It's possible I'm just bitter. Don't get me wrong, I love the Phils, but does it bother anyone else that all Philly sports talk stations are pretty much Phillies sports talk? It's bad enough that ESPN hates hockey, but even the local sports talk? They dismiss the Flyers, admit that " I watched the first period then the shoot out, my focus is on the Phillies. Its all about them, nothing else matters," and it's almost insulting as a hockey fan.
Imagine it's October and the only thing that is on the radio is the Eagles or Flyers, despite the Phillies playoffs. No, that just wouldn't happen, and that's what is happening now. every. day.
THE PHILLIES ARE AT GAME 4/162!
THE FLYERS HAVE 3 GAMES LEFT and are fighting for FIRST SEED.
Cmonnnnnnnnnnnnn....could just be me, but it bothers me. This is a 1st place team and they deserve more respect than this (despite recent play). How can we consider ourselves a hockey town if the only time the media talks about hockey is DURING the playoffs? Don't get me wrong, I'm not saying our fanbase sucks because the Flyers have GREAT fans. It just bothers me how little attention they get.
Thank God for this site.
