Thread hijacking: A Case Study

http://www.calgarypuck.com/forum/for...?TID=4678&PN=1

Normally I don't comment about threads from other boards, but this one just had me rolling.

Starts out as a decent debate about the pros/cons of potentially signing Cliff Ronning for the Flames...then a poster named 'therealdeal' (supposedly a Flames fan) shows up, lays down the "Oilers' prospects are much better than ours" gauntlet, and ALL HELL BREAKS LOOSE.

The aftermath...on the top of their board, there's a locked thread where the mod basically warns him to knock it off, or he's bringing in the Shaw heavies.

What do you expect. The Lames have been out o the playoffs for what 7 years straight. If I was A Flames fan, I'd start turning on my own as well.

Thanks Digger. Good humourous read.

It happened just as you said it. Worth a good hearty laugh.

We should really send him an invite. He really did keep his cool. Not to mention, he is right about a lot of things there.
