In the absence of the reason for the suspension being made public by Brian or the team; we won't be posting any rumors, guesses, or unofficial information on the situation.

Another opportunity for recently honored News Sentinel Sports Editor Phil Kaplan to print nothing but negative news about the Ice Bears. :crap:

On Facebook, one of the Knoxville Ice Bears fan pages is not allowing anyone to post a link due to "respecting the privacy" of the player and his family. People who attempt to provide a link (factual information in the public domain) have been accused of not supporting the team and, at least one person, booted from the group. I can only imagine some of the emails the News Sentinel might be getting

I can only imagine.  People on facebook was giving roanokes paper hell, just for printing we had a very slim chance of making the playoffs a few games ago.  Which they were just telling the truth i thought.  Facebook is a hard crowd to please.  But you cant make everyone happy.

Unfortunately for some, an arrest is public record so privacy goes out the window at that point. While bashing someone's mistake or bad choices aren't a proper decision, stating a true public fact (with the facts to back it up) should be OK.

I got kicked out of the same group for posting about Price's incident. That group is a joke

Its public record and was published in the newspaper so it can be discussed here.  The team is just being understandably over protective.

I'm in late on this. :)  The page is Knoxville Ice Bears Fan Page.

That was me that got booted.  The guy that runs that page is a jerkoff...he likes to think he's some official conduit to the team, he's just a dipshit superfan.  He messaged me stating that the team and Craigen had asked him to have me delete the post.  I said nope, public record.  He responded calling me an ass and then blocked me so I couldn't respond to him...teenage girl-type stuff.

Oh well, I hope he enjoys his echo chamber over there, where any dissenting opinion is treated as 'disrespect'.

He told me that the whole team hated me and wanted to meet up and fight over posting the price article. The guy is a tool. He is a nobody who thinks he is somebody.

Unless you did something for the team where they saw your face every single day, or you were a fanboy of another team who sat behind the away bench and heckled every game, I doubt the "whole team" could hate anyone. The front office will hate you if you throw some April Fools jokes up on Twitter and message boards, however... :whistle:
