Tweeting Trouble

from Adrian Dater of All Things Avs,

As we were waiting for Joe Sacco to make his remarks, there seemed to be some commotion from the Flames dressing room area, located right near the visitors area. A minute or so later, a couple Calgary media people said “Did you hear that, did you hear about the shouting match between Phaneuf and another player. Somebody was screaming at Phaneuf, calling him selfish.”

Back up in the press box, I put out a tweet saying as much. When media people in Canada talk about any kind of “controversy” involving their NHL team, you kind of assume it’s going to be all over the airwaves and in the papers soon.

But I regret putting out that tweet now, because the Flames weren’t too happy with me about it. And I shouldn’t pass along second-half stuff like that. I thought I’d made it clear that I was just passing along what I’d heard, but I don’t think I made that clear enough at all, and it came out too much like I’d heard it myself and that it was gospel.
