Social Media (Policy) and Hockey

This morning I heard about the NHL’s new social media policy and, personally I think that its a good thing (more below), but I was already thinking about social media and hockey, after I decided late last night to watch my DVR of the Traverse City Rangers’ game against Dallas. Certain things that you should [...]

Great read. Just out of curiosity, does this have anything to do with Jeremy Roenick's argument with the Flyer fans?

Interesting. Yeah twitter is great and all, but it is a little dicey for players to use. Some of the former players I'm okay with them getting into it with fans.

One guy who is off the handle imo is Mike Commodore. That guy is way too addicted to twitter and posts some pretty inappropriate stuff.

I'm sure the stuff we saw a during Traverse City was just for then. I doubt we'll see that during the regular season and I'd be surprised if I even saw that during preseason.

Let them post what they want as long as it's not illegal, that's my say.

Though i'm fine with the policy.

Having broadcasters reference twitter posts and trying to push a social media strategy on-air comes off as just sloppy and grasping at straws to me, and it was pretty bad during the tournament.

I understand they're trying to increase viewership by acting like they are all big on new trends, but isn't that the point of having a professional color guy, to form opinions on what's going on?

Agreed. I don't need a commentator to parrot something that I've already read online. It's their job to get the story that only a reporter at ice level or outside the locker room can get.

I do love getting real time info direct from the source during an event though. Not sure it really applies to hockey as I wouldn't expect a player to have a phone on the bench, but cutting them off 2 hours before game time seems a little harsh IMO.

Cool I didn't know you were a lawyer. I'm in law school. Great article as usual!

I felt like twitter literally jumped the shark before my eyes during the tournament. Between ridiculous Giannone and the horrible comments, it made me 100 % sure that my decision to not be on twitter was correct.

I saw this before. Someone replied to him and said he should make a new account with the username "imnotseanavery".

BizNasty has said that the 'Yotes and NHL have been on him about tweeting before. I think the league is trying to embrace the fact that players are more accessible, but at the same times want the access to be on their terms.

I'd rather not have it honestly. It's an unneeded distraction. I don't like interviewing players or coaches on the bench while play is ongoing. Way too many times have I seen a coach talking out of the side of his mouth while his eyes are following the play up and down the ice.
