But when I do come by and check on things pretty much every thread is two or three of the same posters calling each other idiots over and over again. I'm sorry, I don't find that interesting. And so, Yes, the board absolutely does suck now.

    100% spot on.

    This is the kind of thing that will never ever let anyone take you seriously.

    Are posters who think that way now posting at other hockey boards?
    No. Other boreds suck too. I still check in here, but most times find it's not worth my time to post or engage. Alot of good posters left over the years so even if this is the "best" flyers bored it has certainly taken a huge hit in quality over the years.

    When the bored is just an unfunny version of groundhog's day with less interesting characters, it's hard to say it isn't bad.

    Flyers suck balls 75%, work/life 25%.

    The sad thing is, in the NHL you can still suck and be entertaining. Play young, hungry kids, dress a 4th line of goons, etc. etc. I would watch the Flyers more if they sucked but were at least entertaining, but they're not.

    They suck, they're boring, and Saint Ronnie is not committed to a total rebuild, which is about the worst kind of team Philly can have. Fire His Ass.

    I assume the older people on the board that post regularly is because their life has wound down a bit in their old age. Not any fresh blood to spend all of their time on here (Twitter is like a rolling message board). People in their 30's, 40's probably just trying to survive with kids, other shit. The board becomes less interesting.

    Plus, the Flyers suck.

    Posting on message boards peaked about 10 years ago... it's been in steady decline ever since. Witness Philaphans, Sherdog, etc. It's the same all over the internet. I imagine social media probably has a lot to do with this, pulling away quality and quantity.

    I was talking to my wife about this last night. She wondered why the bored was slow. I told her that it was a combination of the Flyers sucking by being boring and lacking anything that resembles physical play and that people find better things to do with their time. It's also a societal thing...where people at the games are using their phones and taking the overall excitement away from the game. This combined with the new NHL etc makes for the horrible shit show we see today.

    The Flyers would be infinitely more exciting if they played a hard physical game and beat some ass along the way. Do that and it won't matter if they win or lose...just give us something exciting and worth watching!
