Ron Wilson - Now on Twitter
« on: October 02, 2011, 12:36:55 PM »
Oh boy, this could get interesting:

"mirtle James Mirtle
Oh good, Leafs coach Ron Wilson is on Twitter: @coachrw63 Now he can yell at us on here, too."

Oh and he's following Kyle Turris:

"Steedorf Stefan Thedorf

@mlse Ronny is following Kyle Turris!! OMGGG. Only NON LEAF. RUMORS!"

First, this has been confirmed by the official Leafs twitter account so no hoax here.

Second, I honestly think Wilson is following Turris just to mess with people. That sounds like something he would do.

Third, props to Wilson for joining. First and only active coach to be on twitter. It probably won't be the most exciting feed to follow, but still nice to see anyway.

Agreed, on all your points.

I hope he is good at blocking people - lots of Leaf-haters and even Wilson-haters among Leaf fans. He'll be a lightning rod for them.

Not sure what he'll have to say - his only tweet so far:

"coachrw63
Need hybrid icing rule change! Have seen too many horrific injuries!"

Great. A whole new venue for Canucks fans to find ways to accuse the Leafs of tampering.

Yeah, I was thinking that if Turris was a Canuck and this situation happened Ron would probably be forced to shut down his account.

Yeah, how long till Gillis makes a tampering claim based on a twitter statement? We should start a pool!

Good god.  Is that tampering?  Where is the Vancouver management to police this?

Edit:  Of course I should have read through the thread before I posted ...

That must be why they had those iPads on the bench last season. Keep up with what was trending during the game.

I'm not on Twitter either ... that kind of thing would be hilarous.  However, it would be predicated on Wilson having a sense of humour, which I can't see happening ...
