Philadelphia has always gotten a bad rep from the media and players for the rowdy and sometimes obnoxious fan base. From hurling snowballs at Santa during an Eagles game to littering the ice with bracelets made to honor long time Flyers owner after a disappointing playoff performance, there is no shortage of fan outrage in the City of Brotherly Love.

A camera caught Bohm saying “I f — ing hate this place” as he trotted off the diamond and fans at home took to twitter — myself included.
