I've been to Citizens Bank Ballpark, but it was like the Phillies against the Mets or something like that.

I know there are a holes in every city, but honestly, Philly takes it to a different level.

not to mention they wear that whole "most intimidating fans" title as a badge of honor then cry about the negative image they have because of it.

I use to read on flyersphans.com messageboard and some guys always talk about how they beat up some oppossing fans, or threw crap at their car, or pissed on someone in the bathroom, etc, etc and they'd get a ton of congrats for chasing people out of their territory etc. It's a damn sporting event.

One of the victims is an Iraq War Veteran with a purple heart. This is the worst move by Flyers or Philly fans ever IMO.

First arrest made:

The Rangers are also giving the victim a VIP treatment night at a game at MSG. What this is a reminder of is that no matter how tough you are (this guy was a Purple Heart recipient and a Marine) there are situations that you cannot control.

Read today this guys bail was quadrupled.

Glad they arrested him. Hopefully he spends some time behind bars.

There is no reason for the violence.

The attackers are closeted Sociopaths that believe there are scenarios where they are immune to the law. Guess they were wrong.
