But in a glorious turn of fate for us suckers who invest heavily in this tremendous content, blueliner seems to have returned to the social networking app in its sweet, sweet “burner” form.
Until now, your herds athletes and managersAnd in general, famous people are accused of using or using secret social media accounts to more freely engage in online conversation, but it is still very enjoyable every time it comes out because of its sheer, next-level silliness and funnyness. everything.
This time the burner saga hit the hockey world, and the NHL social community got stronger in this regard. Here is what we know:
A profile of the New York Rangers avatar NYRFan92360244 (of course) He replied, “It’s not his fault,” to a comment saying “Get Deangelo from this team.” It was the first tweet from the account right after 21:40 ET on Friday night.
As an answer a Deadspin writer who tweeted this “The rangers definitely lost” as DeAngelo was trending on twitter after the game, the suspicious burner replied: “Real damn funny dbag. Instead of giving cheap shots to a player, you should try to get up from the seat and go there yourself. “
Throughout Friday night and until the early hours of Saturday morning, this account – either Tony D himself or just a beloved / crazy fan trying to get blueliners back online – dropped a lot of fishy tweets in an internet attack over the ages.
As “NYRFan” defended DeAngelo (or HIMSELF?) From Internet companies, detectives came out in full force and concluded that DeAngelo was behind the newly created account.
These charges were strongly dismissed by “NYRFan92360244” in a tweet still pinned to the top of his profile at the time of writing this important post:
For the record, I am NOT Tony DeAngelo as people keep saying this for some reason. He’s just tired of being criticized by people who know nothing about the game of hockey.

Noble effort, of course. Simply a good old Blueshirts fan who defends one of their own, right? It is not very fast. Hockey Twitter acted DEEP to expose this man, and as usual he was not disappointed with the guerrilla investigation work.
Two users in particular took this account to the cleaners, while “nathancsn” accidentally claimed that they got the source code from the tweet revealing DeAngelo’s location, while other users quickly stated that this was just a trick to provoke a reaction from the so-called burner. made.
Three straight replies came and “What the heck is that?” then, “You are a liar” and ending with, “How did you do this?”
Then “aelanK”To throw another bomb:
The user claims that he sent a “ip grabber link and clicked immediately” to the suspect printer.
“One final note that should be clear: of course there is no way to guarantee it is him! i sent a link to the account and they immediately clicked and it showed pittsburgh city center. these + tweets? pretty reasonable to assume identity lol. have a nice day.”
If this last one isn’t fake, then it’s pretty hard not to conclude that this is indeed DeAngelo behind this burner, but this is of course a big “if” in the age of Bad Internet Stuff.
Consider that this covers for now. We may never know for sure if this is Tony D, but I promise you I’ll update this article if new details come out or come out.
