Taking a shot at the guy because of his weight?

Classy, Brad, Classy.

Address what he said. You can disagree with him without taking a personal shot.

I am interested to see how the media in the NHL handles this.

No, he can’t.

Because he’s Brad Marchand, and is a gigantic P.O.S.

No doubt Marchand is at the top of the list of players i can’t stand. That being said, Haggerty is published some pure garbage in the past and i’m not opposed to someone (even if it’s a player) calling them out for it.  And for those that didn’t see, Haggerty took a shot at Marchand yesterday on twitter. Don’t talk shit unless you’re prepared to get it back.

Here is Haggerty’s Twitter, in case you want to read it.

That has nothing to do with taking a shot at the guy because of his weight.

Oh boo hoo. So Haggerty can take personal shots at Marchand but Marchand can’t reply in kind?

Don’t look now, but your gaping hypocrisy is showing.

You miss the part where he called Hagg’s hot take “garbage”


He said the team was better without one of their players. Another player took issue with it and called it out. He could have left it at that, instead he projected that the reason his take was garbage was because he was at the snack bar and not paying attention. Take issue with the delivery all you want but personally I don’t mind players standing up for their teammates when a writer says something derogatory about them.

I wish everyone just took care of their own business, was respectable, and acted their age. 

Unfortunately, there’s always a couple people who escalate situations, and it’s kind of like poop in the pool for everyone else.

In a perfect world right?

 

Meanwhile, a hack writer shit in the pool and a player everyone agrees is a heel scooped it out and mashed it in the writers hair. Really not surprising behavior by either party.

I don’t know if I’ve ever read a more perfect analogy.

Haggerty responds on Twitter,

At the end of the day I actually agree that you guys are clearly better off with Krug in the lineup. But just doing my job & asking the tough questions, Marchy. And I never, ever hit the snack bar when No. 63 is on the ice, my angry little elf friend

you dont even watch the games you just stand at the snack bar the whole time
Address what he said.

I was thinking, “How do we know it isn’t true? Maybe the writer doesn’t actually watch the games and just writes dramatic story narratives for the eager masses.”

And then:

And I never, ever hit the snack bar when No. 63 is on the ice

So now we know he does watch some of the games he writes about.

And with Haggerty’s response this all could have been done and settled. 

But then he throws in that gem at the end:

You’re angry, and I don’t blame you one bit.

It must seems like a big, mean, cold world for the three of you left on the Babcock bandwagon at this point.

Sorry, Char-dee wink

from Joe Haggerty of NBCSports Boston,

The popcorn-eating masses on Twitter got their latest look into what goes on inside the Bruins dressing room between longtime Bruins reporters and agitator/chirper/bon vivant Brad Marchand when he took to Twitter on Thursday to “roast” yours truly.

Truth be told, it’s always been a good-natured joking/trash-talking kind of relationship between me and Marchand over his eight years with the Black and Gold, and the winky face emojis between us kind of prove it. That nuance, however, is completely lost on the car crash-hungry Twitter masses thirsting for the latest tweet beef between anybody on social media these days.
