The Dog Days of August always create a void for talk radio, blowhards on TV and even the real media.
It’s the Silly Season.
What else can you think of as a reason for The Athletic to run an entire piece about how the NHL is rigged against your favorite team?
The league has clearly been rigged against the Flyers ever since they redefined hockey (in a marketing-unfriendly way) back in the mid-70s.
Five Stanley Cup Finals since 1980, five losses? You do the math.
Whether it’s allowing goals that are blatantly offside or counting OT winners that nobody even sees, the league always finds a way to make sure the Flyers can’t get back to the top of the mountain.
Verdict: League rigged against you
