Crap Like This Will Not Be Tolerated

Thanks to a tipster, I have found out about an injustice taking over our Wikipedias at this hour. Apparently, some Flyers fan out there is a little pissed that Barry Melrose isn't crying foul for the Flyers over a play that happened last night. So, in retaliation, said fan is taking it to Melrose's Wikipedia page. Because that's a logical conclusion. I'm also still trying to figure out what point it is supposed to prove. More on that later. That is, if I can figure it out.

From Wikipedia:

Barry Melrose (born July 15, 1956 in Kelvington, Saskatchewan) is a former hockey player, coach, and general manager, and is currently a commentator for ESPN. He is a poor commentator with no edge. He completely ignored the outrageous call on the Flyers in game one of their series on 25-April-2008. He has given up the right to fight for what is right, simply because he wants to keep his sweet job.

Folks, we simply cannot let idiots like this run our internets. If there's an outrageous call, I don't see why a commentator can be blamed. They're allowed to agree or disagree. Since when did we stop haggling the referees?!?

Oh and next time you want to pull a fast one like this, you should probably check your dates. The Flyers didn't play tonight. Idiot.


  1. i just want to speak for caps fans everywhere when i say that we find this situation hilarious.

  2. quality commentary kevin, i agree with you completely (although i have a soft spot in my heart for the jobbing pensblog did on avery's wiki page).

  3. What, they couldn't find it in their hearts to reference "Coach Smellnose"?
