The Ex NHL player turned ESPN analyst after a series of unfortunate tweets by dangeroushockey to Barnaby and a group of his friends.  “Shit, I thought the guy enjoyed my tweets.  He RE tweeted 2 for crying out loud saying he LOVED THEM.  Now he appears to hate my guts.”  said DH senior editor any Rocque Trem early Sunday. Although judging by his history he has a hot temper (fight with best friend?) 

It’s odd interviewing myself but I do have to question my tweeting etiquette.  I mean it appears that there is some sort of unwritten rule which I occasionally break.  Maybe I do more than I think, as I send my thoughts off to people often.  However, rarely do I get yelled at, and often get complimented and thanked.  I would imagine most of the time, I get ignored, so one may chalk that up for annoying someone.  Based on that, is imposing a 60 day suspension from tweeting for offending Matt (even though he could have politely told me sooner I was annoying him.)  Kind of Ironic from the 70’s version of Sean Avery.  But nonetheless we will not appeal our suspension and drift into Tweeteroblivion.

To the few fans I have, I will be reading tweets and appreciate any feedback you can provide during this suspension.  As for Matt and his direct and sudden outburst at me (good thing it wasn’t in person he may have dropped gloves, if he still had the guts?), you fill my heart with great sadness and despair.  But I forgive you.

My 5 year old did kick him in face, so maybe this has been simmering??

Just days ago he loved my Tweets, perhaps there's more to story? 🙂

It will happen. Cleveland will win a Stanley Cup before any other major sport's trophy. While we admit we are not hockey bloggers that take themselves seriously, we do expect that ESPN hockey coverage needs challenged. It's time people take hockey seriously, and it ain't happening here. Great hockey, stats, scores, highlights. Um no. LOL

    I’m not gonna lie Dangerous, your tweets can get annoying. But they work. I still follow you and I still visit your website rather regularly. So as annoying as you may be on occasion, it works.

      Craig, ty for the response. I will take all this into review during my ban. Rest assured as annoying as they are to you, Matt never followed me and I tweeted him rarely in comparison. Something set her off. But again, as I learn in therapy, I need to look at myself and my behavior first. Thanks for being DH fan. Jackets need win tonight:)

    Please to be letting us all in on the ‘offending’ tweet.

    If you sent him video of him getting punked by Owen Nolan fifteen years ago at Memorial Auditorium, I’d kind of expect it.

    • hockeyrocque says:

      It wasn NOT a specific tweet, I think it was the “AMOUNT of TWEETS” which was minimal. But the last tweet I sent I accidently hit reply all to him and some what appeared to be buddies. I was responding to him saying something about JETS JETS. Jokingly, I tweeted that he needs to stop tweeting suff that is not FACT BASED (implying jets aren’t good haha) I then realized I tweeted his buddies after one of them replied to me not appreciating it. I apologized. Then apologized to Matt, then he did what you see above.

      It fills my heart with great sadness and despair. But will survive with our without Matt. I hope he can “get cool.” as my buddy Tom Keeler used to say in college.

    Thanks for link guys you RULE:

    Also thanks to therinkrat and anyone else who supports freedom of tweets, the 11th amendment of the USA.

    I mean, who the fuck really cares? Is this website imposing a twitter ban on you as an employee? Isn’t this site your own? Why was I even sent here? Because Mathew Barnaby blocked you on twitter? This is what is blog worthy now??
