Default The Burkes Take the Mic

So today Bill Burke Sr. took to Facebook to release a statement which essentially said there has now been a ‘crackdown’ on anyone releasing team/player related information on Facebook, which may, I don’t know, extend to this site as well. It will be interesting to see how that affects the ‘Rumour Mill’ about this team. And frankly, I’m surprised it’s taken this long for the Dogs to do something like this.

I don’t think it’s going to change much when it comes to certain people talking about stuff because they don’t normally mention stuff until it’s factual I think this is more about the info that has been going around about Thomas and Incze and where it came from

To quote the icedogfans.com home page:

"What is IceDogFans.com? We are a fanatical support group of the Niagara IceDogs OHL hockey team. We have no official relations with the organization, or the OHL."

Moderator's Note: The recent rumour on Facebook was posted here and it was sourced to the Facebook site. I was able to view that post and confirmed our member's observations. Our member was not purporting to have any inside knowledge
and the matter was discussed respectfully on this site. There were no site policy violations.

You know what the Burkes could do to control the narrative? They could be more communicative. Simple as that.

All that had to be said about Thomas injury was the nature of the injury, he's being looked after by team (LA) Drs, and is expected to return (XXXX-XX-XX) but as with any injury, that's nothing more than an estimate.

A quick couple of lines, nothing that would cause an issue for the team, or player, and it would have forestalled all the nonsense and speculation, the people spreading the rumour that he was done for the season.

The Incze issue is, of course, waaaaaaaay more complicated. But again, saying something along the lines of : Negotiations are ongoing with a couple of clubs (no need to name names), but nothing is forthcoming at this moment. Please be aware that this is a teenager and respect his privacy.

Add a line about whether or not he's expected to be dressed before being moved. (Which is what started all the talk in the first place, someone asked why he wasn't dressed and someone else had to play 'big-shot' and disseminate information that they weren't supposed to). Problem solved.

They don't have to give any details... Maybe have Billy work it in during a post game interview.

The 'playing close to the vest' then getting upset when people speculate / spin the rumour mill, is patently ridiculous. You can't have it both ways. The fan base is (as proper) fanatical. They want to know / discuss what is going on.

There's no reason for them to let this stuff get out of hand to the point where Bill has to get on FB and issue a statement like that. A Social Media Coordinator could pop into the official FB and Twitter, drop a short couple of lines and there would be no rampant speculation, or someone affiliated with the team 'going rogue'.

Although I agree with you about them being more communicative I’m sure they don’t care about fans speculating it’s when people in and round the team who aren’t involved in media coverage of the team saying stuff in public social media or at the rink to fans the Burke’s shouldn’t have to say anything about this cause it should be common sense for billiets or people working for the team and to Billy’s credit he did address the Thomas thing he just did it later than fans would like

Rumor mills will always run...

There's already policy in place here regarding rumor-posting. (#14 here:
RULES / GUIDELINES / INFORMATION - All users please read before reading/posting msgs! - Niagara IceDogs Fan Forum !
)



Yes we legally have free speech, and can say what we wish. But rule #14 ^^ in that link is here to keep things from getting out of hand, which in the first couple years, happened. People were posting all sorts of BS and nobody knew what to believe.

So now, if you post a rumor, you MUST post the source. If you don't, and the rumor turns out to be false, the account will be deleted.


You can post rumors, just make sure you know them to be true first so there's no penalty against your account.

I didn't see any message from Mr. Burke just the owner of the FB page. I wonder if the billet families have to sign non-disclosure agreements? The have a hard time keeping billets, I wonder if it will get worse when they have a gag order and "consequences" for speaking out.
