The Flyers would like to mark their territory on New Jersey

Flyers Round 2-Game 1 t-shirt

With each home playoff game, the Flyers have a new orange-colored t-shirt for the fans with a new theme on it and with their relative neighbors the New Jersey Devils in town, Philly wants to protect their turf.

Today’s game shirt, courtesy of the Flyers’ Twitter account, says the Flyers are “marking our territory.” With a flag planted in Pittsburgh and now sites set on New Jersey, this shirt makes you think more of a crude Calvin and Hobbes car window sticker than trying to dominate your next-door neighbors.

It’s not as fun as telling Sidney Crosby they don’t like him either or even having some jam with Peter Laviolette, but somehow this whole thing fits a lot nicer in a series with the Devils. You never think of Philly and New Jersey playing nicely and this shirt certainly hammers that point home with bathroom aplomb.

      what does it matter? as long as the flyers win they can continue to make new shirts. What team you cheer for? habs?

      weird post

        I guess we’ll have to explain the Knock Knocks every round.

        The Flyers play Mac Miller’s Knock Knock in the locker room after every win.

        LOL i didn’t get it at first. dude we’re gonna be playin 3 straight “knock knocks” from what I saw yesterday.

        As an old fart, I wish they would play something more familiar like “Sweet Caroline,” adopted by teams in several cities and sports. Since they’re looking to ‘reclaim’ Jersey, they should grab something from those original Jersey Boys, the “Four Seasons” e.g. Walk Like a Man, Let’s Hang on, or, Workin’ My Way Back.

        As much as I can see how this relates…mac miller is their tradition and as you must know, hockey traditions normally do not change…

      • brian32556 - Apr 30, 2012 at 5:43 PM

        I wonder if they knew Mac Miller is from Pittsburgh. Of course, they own Pittsburgh now! LOL

      • bigdong28 - May 1, 2012 at 11:10 AM

        They definitely own Consol Energy Center

      knock knock was gay then and its gay now

      • icelovinbrotha215 - Apr 29, 2012 at 6:26 PM

        It is a dumb song ha. But it represents a victory the Flyers so we will deal with it for one season.

    • brian32556 - Apr 29, 2012 at 3:54 PM

      haha indeed. Lest you forget, this all is originally NY Ranger’s territory and we plan on taking it back! LET’S GO RANGERS!

        Ha. This is the stupidest thing I ever read.

      • brian32556 - Apr 30, 2012 at 5:44 PM

        But not the stupidest thing you’ve ever seen written. That honor belongs to yourself.

    Come on, come on, 20 minutes till hockey. This horse crap is BORING. Seriously, there’s horses jumping over things on TV. And this is an Olympic sport? Since when?

    With swag like these shirts its no wonder Philly was voted ugliest city in America….

    • melonheadsdaddy - Apr 29, 2012 at 9:39 PM

    Better than your trailer park lot Bob…..

    How’s your hockey team doing? Jackhole……..

    Take the Pirates stadium out of Pittsburgh, and Pittsburgh is the armpit of the Country. As it is, it’s only the armpit of the State.

    Hey Flyer fans, if you think your headcase goalie is going to win a Stanley Cup, you’re crazy. If they do get by the Devils, the NYR’s will light them up like Pittsburgh did but with King Henrik in goal. 0-6 is a real confidence builder going into a series. Oh…..I forgot, the Flyers are due. lol
