Utica Comets - I'd like to speak to your manager

Published November 9, 2021 at 10:19 PM

By now most people have heard about or seen the tweet the Utica Comets sent out about Cole Caufield. It wasn't overly funny, but it was just a form of playful ribbing from an organization known for playing fast and loose with their Twitter interactions.


The Comets eventually deleted the tweet and you'd think that's where things would end but unfortunately it's not.

In an interview with Cole's father Paul he referred to this tweet as bullying and spoke about how it shouldn't be tolerated.

To go even further Darren Dreger reported that the AHL was made aware of the tweet and they informed Utica this sort of behavior wouldn't be tolerated.

This might come as a surprise to some people, but I guarantee you Cole heard a lot worse on the ice that night from everyone on the Utica bench.

Are we at the point where we just allow team Twitter accounts to post goals and news? Are we seriously trying to remove all personality from these accounts? Come on hockey, let's protect the players but let's not get this soft.
