Broad Street Bullies is the 1970s Philadelphia Flyers hockey team. To say like Jacques Chevalier: “The image of the fightin’ Flyers spreading gradually around the NHL, and people are dreaming up wild nicknames. They’re the Mean Machine, the Bullies of Broad Street and Freddy’s Philistines.”
|Flyers’ enforcer Dave Schultz|

These Gladiators were nothing like todays wimps!
And it is nice to look at this guys today. None are drunk-punch nor drug addled. They are all lucids, good-lookings and most likely wealthy. And these Broad Street Bullies fought a lot more often and a lot harder than todays wimps!
Butchers on ice!!
