Flyers fans boo 'Hockey Fights Cancer' PSA featuring rival players
Found 1 hour ago on Sportress of Blogitude: Yardbarker Blogger Network
During an intermission between periods in the game against the Vancouver Canucks in the teams home opener, a Hockey Fights Cancer public service announcement appeared on the arenas jumbotron.
The PSA featured Pittsburgh Penguins center Sidney Crosby, Chicago Blackhawks center Jonathan Toews and Buffalo Sabres goalie Ryan Miller, disliked players on teams which have had bitter rivalries with the Flyers over the years. So Flyers fans did what came naturally when they saw those players: they booed them, despite the fact they were representing and speaking to a worthwhile cause which I am confident most Flyers fans wouldnt boo had it not been for those players appearances in the spot.

well were they against cancer message or not happy that there weren't scantily dressed women dancing?
It was inevitable, probably would have happened in any sport arena. It was poor judgment on the part of those who put together the announcement, they should have seen that one coming.
