Ranking all of Flyers' alternate jerseys after Stadium Series unveil

Ranking all of Flyers' alternate jerseys after Stadium Series unveil

The Flyers unveiled their newest jersey Friday, introducing the 2019 Stadium Series sweater the team will rock Feb. 23 at Lincoln Financial Field against the Penguins.

These threads have little to no white, giving them a darker, different look (see story).

While the initial feedback didn't seem great from fans, it feels like people are starting to warm up to the jerseys.

The debate also got us thinking back to the Flyers' past jerseys, specifically their alternate uniforms.

So, without further ado, here's our super official ranking of all the Flyers' third jerseys:

1. The original

This is an exception. The jersey wasn't an alternate but one of the originals. It has to be No. 1 because it was the basis for all the franchise's sweaters that have followed, as the Flyers haven't gotten too far away from it, which is cool. After all, those were franchise-shaping years.

2. Winter Classic

These threads were unique because the 2012 Winter Classic was so unique. The event, overall, was memorable, so it made the jersey special for fans.

Whenever you see it, you think of Jan. 2 at Citizens Bank Park.

The Flyers ended up rolling with these as alternates until the end of the 2015-16 season.

3. Fresh black

The black jersey was so awesome when it was introduced in 1997. It just had a cool, new, intense kind of look that still resonates with fans. The black eventually became a regular sweater for the Flyers.

4. Orange is back

The orange returned as an alternate with a distinct look in 2002. The jersey almost looks red here probably because of the lighting with the picture.

But these were sweet with a modern look. Obviously, orange is now the Flyers' main color worn at home.

5. A blackout

The Flyers still don these jerseys as alternates after introducing them as their 2017 Stadium Series sweater. The black numbers and last names bring out the black even more, a nifty look with orange and white standing as the complementary colors.

6. Golden meaning

This jersey wasn't as popular simply because it was worn for only one season — 2016-17. But the gold was a neat addition for a meaningful year in the franchise, celebrating its 50th anniversary.

Did the Flyers just troll the Eagles on social media?

The Eagles have been quite the disappointment this season, with the latest being their atrocious 37-31 loss to the Dolphins on Sunday in South Florida. And with disappointments come possible troll jobs? 

As the clock wound down and fans became increasingly exasperated with the team, social media anger started to build and it looks like one fellow Philadelphia team may have added just an oh-so-subtle jab in there.

As the 37-31 score went final, the Flyers sent out quite the interesting reminder of their impressive record this November. It seems like they don’t want fans to forget that they are NOT part of the teams that have been disappointing this city. 

You have to admit, the timing is a bit suspicious. 


Fans certainly seem to think that the Flyers are trolling the Eagles with their post, based on the replies.

We love a little friendly fire between the Philadelphia sports teams, if this is a true troll job. Or maybe it’s just a conveniently scheduled tweet by the Flyers' social media team. 

You be the judge.

Eagles social media exposed Orlando Scandrick in the best way

Eagles social media exposed Orlando Scandrick in the best way

Updated: 6:35 p.m.

Oh boy.

Things have gotten wild over in the Eagles' world today, beginning with former Eagles cornerback Orlando Scandrick torching almost everyone on his old team on FS1’s “Undisputed” this morning (see story).

Then, Malcolm Jenkins clapped back at Scandrick in NSFW fashion to essentially dismiss the claims by Scandrick, to which Scandrick then responded on Colin Cowherd’s show that he essentially “wasn’t attacking anyone personally”(see story).

And so, after a morning of ping-ponging back and forth, we have the ultimate response, from the team itself.

The Eagles social media account offically weighed in in the most brilliant way. Actions speak louder than words, Scandrick, and you can't run from history.

Well damn, they really just exposed Scandrick. I mean, how do you come back from being shredded by both Jenkins and a professional NFL team?

So long Scandrick, you won’t be missed.

Jenkins himself apparently liked the tweet, too ... he had a very interesting quote tweet.
