ESPN Investigates Matt Barnaby’s Twitter Ban on Dangeroushockey

While we at Dangeroushockey hate to stoop to this level, we feel we owe it to the blogging world and to the viewers of ESPN, to stand up and shout especially since the banning was clearly in question (read my previous Barnaby article about why).  Below is the actual email received back from my inquiry and I believe that this Patrick dude has some clout and will make certain the matter is settled fairly!

ESPN Viewer Response

Dear ESPN,

I love your NHL coverage and the addition of Matthew Barnaby.  However, recently through what I was certain was a Twitter misunderstanding, he banned me from his account.  Only days after RE tweeting 2 of my tweets saying how awesome they were.

I forgive Matt for his unfounded fit of rage but think that ESPN should mandate that he put me back on as he after all represents you guys and shouldn’t be able to arbitrarily dismiss fans?  I could see if I were vulgar or offensive etc but that was certainly not the case.  My twiter name is Dangeroushockey and my website which has a full, detailed recap of the outburst is

Thanks in advance.

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
