Tailing the Komets

New rule

Players' personal lives are completely off-limits. The only way that will change is if the players themselves choose to comment upon them, but it has to come from them first. Any rumors, innuendo, hearsay or second-hand information, whatever, about their personal lives will be removed. If that doesn't work, the posters themselves will be removed. I'm not going to open the paper up to potential libel or other possible legal problems because of posts. It's not worth it, and it's really no one else's business.

If you disagree, there are plenty of other potential places to post where maybe they will allow it. I can't and won

I endorse this rule.

Bumping into drunks at a bar, to me, is not a good source.

I've had to delete some things recently.

Fine with me. I have no problem being "out of the loop" so long as everyone else is too. It just bugs me when people say certain things shouldn't be talked about, but everyone and their brother knows all about it, and I don't.

I have a hypothetical question.....

Let's say Burgee is at a local watering hole here in the Summit City, and he is enjoying multi-colored pills and foo foos while eating double nutted fruitcake with red-headed hockey chicks.....and he allegedly "bumps" into 3 jeep girls and then comes onto the blog and floats stories about what those 3 alleged jeep girls had to say about Icy.....

Does this qualify as breaking the rules?

Good rule i think.. As a fan i do not really care about their personal lives anyhow. What they do on the ice is what gets my attention.

Well i say that, but i do care some.. You know, when a player moves overseas. (Chaulk).. The big things that they themselves fill everyone in on. Marriages, babies, yadda yadda. That is cool to hear and know i guess.

I support this rule whole heartedly (did I spell that right)

Good job Blake. It should have been done a long time ago.You certainly have my support.

Is this about Blake's receding hair line?

This blog is then unconstitutional. Freedom of speech, press? Were eating our own freedoms.

Common courtesy and sense of course personal lives shouldnt be touched, but how then did their lives become unpersonal to reach a blog? Cover your tracks, gossip is brutal or otherwise dont do it at all.

Kool Aid we know you just want dirt to post on message boards like ITB. You post there daily and start threads. BTW, blogs are at the desecration of the owner, they are not public domain. There is no freedom of the press for blogs and since you don't use your real name the player could sue the paper and not you. Newspapers have to meet a requirement before posting anything. It cannot be hear say. Everything posted on here by so called bloggers (except for the author) is hear say. So therefore it cannot be upheld and is considered hear say.

Dont know if this was posted or not but larry signed with the riverkings in july! if this has been said then disregard.

It was mentioned, but I'm sure there are those who didn't see it.

Koolaid: Unconstitutional? Please don't be foolish enough to believe, though the US Constitution guarantees your right of free speech, that this or any other newspaper (or magazine, or blog, or...) is obligated to provide you with a forum for said speech.

No one is taking away anyone's Freedom of Speech. You all have the full right to start your own blog or other media distribution vehicle and say exactly what you like on it. I love it when folks start spewing about losing freedoms, yet I bet 99 percent of them (and that's a conservative estimate) couldn't quote or even paraphrase that Amendment in a post without stopping by Google first.

Freedom of the Press guarantees freedom to the owner of the press to say whatever they like in their own publications. Don't like it? Go get your own press. Simple enough.
