I don't have terribly much to say, so I'll try and keep this brief.
Through the first ten or eleven games the flyers have pretty much played abysmally. Bright spots here and there but for the most part it's been painful to watch for all of us. Our tempers get high when things don't go way, but don't worry, this isn't a "we need to be excellent to each other" post. Quite frankly considering the raining fecal matter that has been the season so far I feel we've been quite cordial to each other. Furthermore, the last game against the caps saw a rival try to come troll us at the end of the game, I don't think anyone even responded after he started posting his more baiting things.
I feel however, the issue at hand is more grave than a few people arguing or acting like douches.
I feel we have to address that I've seen posts from people with attitudes "not knowing what to do,"wanting to jump ship," "losing all faith," and "Not caring." (Not direct quotes, but the gist of what I've seen on the threads)
People who talk like that constantly about teams, especially that last one have a name
We constantly joke about teams like the Pens and Caps, other fair-weather fan teams. But that was when we were playing well. If we can't stick with our team when they're play poorly, we shouldn't be able to deserve the high of when they're kicking ass and playing great. I hope that things like that were said in the heat of the moment. I know fans in every team's fan-base are going to be jumpers, but I thought better of this blog. Even if they can't turn it around, I would appreciate some consistency from us. Yes we'll be mopey, yes it's going to suck, and yes we're be angry and probably argue with each other a tad more. But losses shouldn't diminish the passion you have as a fan for your team or that sport
I'll leave with one parting shot:
The fecal matter will hit the rotary oscillating device, If you're get off the wagon now and come back every time the team doesn't play well, I'll have my wife get the number of the orthopedic surgeon she works with. I hear all that jumping can be bad on your knees.
I hope I'm wrong, and if I am, someone please argue to the contrary. I would really love to be wrong here.
