Conspiracy Theory- All Star Edition

from James Mirtle,

In case you’ve missed the news, there’s just a wee bit of controversy over the final ballot totals in the case of the Rory Fitzpatrick business. As in, some appear to be missing.


The comment from snafu in the Mirtle post is perfect…

Who fudged the numbers here? If there are a few fans smart enough to figure out how to set up bots to cast repeated votes, and to tie up the interface so others can’t get in, who’s fudging here?

National Hockey League Deputy Commissioner Bill Daly said via email this afternoon that measures were taken in the beginning to ensure against tampering with the all-star balloting system:
“There were no changes made to the vote counting process at any point in time from the start of the voting to the end,” Daly said. “But there were procedures and safeguards in place from the start to prevent automated or other fraudulent voting methods.”
