Flyers fans are feeling frustrated. The Philadelphia Flyers ended last season with fans in anticipation of great things. This season started and every team had to deal with choppy waters due to COVID. It was the easy and convenient excuse for a bad game or two or three in a row. Thankfully, the waters are calming and the beach is in sight. But, for this Flyers team, forget the beach, the basement is much closer.
On the rare occasions that they are good, they are very good, maybe one game a week? Unfortunately, they are playing three or four games a week.
It seems that once spectators were admitted, the team, who spent a few hundred bucks on cardboard cutouts didn’t want to lose the investment funds.
“I know, let the play on the team!” bizarre but apparently factual. Simply teach them to skate, and put the number 28 on one and 93 on another. “This is so stupid, it just may work!” Factor in a struggling goalie who is playing behind a defense that is engaging in social distancing while playing.
Suddenly, Ron Hextall doesn’t look so bad, does he? Clearly, the Flyers are suffering from the “Philadelphia Bad Sports Management Syndrome.” When will it improve? If I knew the answer to that I would be the GM. Nevermind. Hard to believe why Flyers fans would be so frustrated. For more Flyers coverage click here.
