Chicago alternative radio station Q101 made a rape joke during game 3 of the Stanley Cup Final between the Chicago Blackhawks
and Boston Bruins. Now for $1,000 guess the medium in which Q101 made this horrible insensitive gaffe...
Tell Q101 what they’ve just won: lots of listeners lost, a deeply offended audience, corporate sponsors aghast (they might bail too possibly), a public relations nightmare, an inevitable upcoming public apology, and maybe even a fired social media
Didn’t we learn from the film Borat
that rape jokes aren’t ok? Well, it has been 8 years since that movie came out. Didn’t WE JUST LEARN, in this exact NHL
postseason, that tweeting sexual assault jokes during hockey
games isn't cool?
The LA Kings Twitter
account just made that mistake a few weeks ago when they let a local shock jock sports talk radio guy
take over their Twitter
feed for a period of a Stanley Cup Playoff game...
awhile ago to host The Crossover, a daily sports and entertainment show on NBC
Sports Network. The program, hosted solely by Michelle Beadle
(unlike Sports Nation on ESPN
in which she had a co-host) will go all in Stanley Cup Final content on Monday with a one-hour extended episode prior to game 3 between the Chicago Blackhawks
and Boston Bruins. It airs at 5 p.m. CDT.
There will also be special NHL
edition of the Michelle Beadle
talk show after the game). For whatever reason, game 3 tomorrow night will only be on NBC
Sports Network, not NBC
(game 2 was demoted to cable as well)...
With the Chicago Blackhawks
taking on the Boston Bruins in game 1 of the Stanley Cup Final tonight, a lot of people will be tweeting about it. Some will be hockey
mavens and NHL
experts. On the other side, you’ve got meathead bandwagon idiots who don’t even know what a power play is, believe "Chelsea Dagger"
is not Amstel Light commercial crapola and use the games as an excuse to get blasted.
These five Twitter
habits are a decent litmus test to see who's worth following and who isn't. Avoiding these habits doesn't mean you'll gain followers. (I'll probably anger some of you here and you'll defollow me for it).
These rules apply tonight to the Blackhawks
game, but also apply to every big sporting event. We’ll use the Stanley Cup as an example, but this knowledge carries over to tweeting all live sporting events...

Sports’s top NHL
