New Jersey Issues Flyers License Plates

We've always joked about the bizarre lack of a market that the NJ Devils have. They're from a small state geographically, yet they are at best the 3rd most popular team in the state. The entire southern half of New Jersey is basically Flyers country, while the north is split between Rangers & Devils with a sprinkling of Islanders fans thrown in.

The Devils have always fought this trying to position themselves as the entire state's team and to gain a foothold in South Jersey... with little success. They probably won't be too happy about this news. The NJ motor vehicle commission has issued Flyers themed license plates.

"It’s the black-and-orange logo right there on the lefthand side of the plate," says  Motor Vehicle Commission spokesman Mike Horan.  "Across the bottom of the plate it says, "Flyers Charities," where some of the money is being directed."

MVC spokesman Mike Horan drove the knife in a bit deeper when asked which hockey team he pulls for.

"I’m a South Jersey guy, born and raised in Vineland, so I gotta Go Flyers every time!" he says.
