Captain Mike Richards took verbal shots at members of the  Philadelphia media for their steadfast coverage of the Flyers, who have now fallen to the bottom of the Atlantic Division standings after two straight losses.

“I just can’t understand it. Of all the things you guys can do with your time, you choose to write about this team?” Richards said of the reporters that try and make the Flyers seem as interesting as possible so people will continue to watch games. “There are like half a billion other things you can write about. What about the Pants on the Ground guy? He’s gotta be more entertaining than we are, right?”

Richards and the Flyers will try desperately to remain relevant on the Philly sports landscape as they take on the Columbus Blue Jackets at home on Tuesday.
