I see what you mean.  I run Debian Wheezy and have the same issue.  I even
have the Adobe Flash binary blob installed because I was having issues with
the free versions (looking at you gnash).

This might be the first time I came across a flash site that didn't play.
My version may be out of date (the blob is package maintained, but I don't
know how well), but that is the only thing I can think of.
