Flyers Fans: Show Your Support for Wayne Simmonds

The Philadelphia Flyers lost to the Detroit Red Wings 4-3 in a shoot-out Thursday night. It was a preseason game which meant practically nothing, however the game was marred by a disgustingly racist act by a fan.

Flyers Forward Wayne Simmonds had a banana thrown at him by a fan as he skated towards the Detroit goal during a shoot-out opportunity.  Justly so, Simmonds still managed to score.

Dustin Leed from theHockeyGuys.net mentioned that we should start an outlet to show our support for Wayne Simmonds. There is a similar post on BroadStreetHockey.com. I encourage all of you to leave a comment here and on the Broad Street Hockey post as well.

Let’s show Wayne that Flyers fans are behind him!
