  3. Dumb Bitches like lovedemands-expression think it’s fun to harass strangers & brag about it online. So much fun, lovedemands-expression doesn’t care if it’s actually the person they’re trying to harass.

    Lololol my girlfriend and I yelled at the Mason stalker-hater at the game Saturday

    So does Mason have a new stalker or were you just harassing the people who bought my tickets because your too dumb to think for yourself ? 

    Speaking of Stalking, how many ADA sections at the arena did you ‘stalk’ looking for someone you know nothing about, who never did anything to you for the sole purpose of harassing them & their disabled father? 

    Who does that?  What kind of person are you?  I never did anything to you, you know nothing about me, you know nothing about what your ever talking about, but you run around an arena looking for someone so you can BULLY & HARRASS them ?  Then you brag about harassing [either the person who bought my tickets or that you mistook for me]

    Is your self esteem so low you have to bully people to make yourself feel better?  Or do you have so few friends you think bullying & harassing someone over rumors some mean bitches made up will make you popular?  Maybe you’d have more friends if you were nice to people instead of being a BULLY & harassing people you don’t even know enough about to realize it’s not even the person you’re trying to harass? 

    Why do you even want to be friends with people who would think it’s cool for you to bully & harass strangers? 

    It’s because of people like you, [that want to harass me over something that isn’t even true] that I haven’t taken my dad to any games since January —  Because people I don’t know and never did anything to want to look all over the arena & harass me about something that isn’t even true.  I don’t deserve that & I certainly am not going to subject my dad to it.  What the fuck is wrong with you? 

    And you know what…  any athlete that thinks bullying is cool, or would be impressed by someone bragging about harassing a perfect stranger — IS NOT A VERY NICE PERSON.  Most athletes don’t support bullying.  But go ahead & keep harassing the random people that buy my tickets to the rest of the games this season [or whoever it is you think is me] & then bragging about it.

  5. Now aware [thanks to several helpful Flyers fans] that I’m not pretty enough to be one of the goalie’s fans, & the fact he found it necessary to maintain a post with such information for over a month, I assume he shares the same view as his fans. 

    No worries ..  I’ll be wearing my New Jersey Devils T-Shirt while I watch tomorrow night’s game. 

     
  6. Recently several Steve Mason fans informed me I’m not pretty enough to be his fan. Having waited over a month to delete such valuable information [despite numerous requests from friends & family pleading with him to remove it], I assume #steveMason shares the same view as his fans. 

    No worries ..  I’ll be wearing my New York Rangers [ #30 Henrik Lundqvist ]  T-Shirt while I watch the game at home. 

     
  7. My apologies if my tee shirt offends any San Jose fans.

    The photo was taken prior to my being informed by several Steve Mason fans that I just wasn’t pretty enough to be his fan. And seeing as Steve Mason waited over a month to delete such valuable information [despite numerous requests from friends & family pleading with him to remove it], I’m left to assume such comments represent his own view.

    No worries .. I’ll be wearing my brand new San Jose T-Shirt while watching the game at home on TV.  Hoping it will be the night Joe Thornton finally scores four times, as he’s provided such a detailed description of his much-anticipated 4-goal celly.

     
  8. Stuff I Learned From Hockey Players & Their Fans …

    It’s perfectly acceptable to be mean to other people to make yourself feel better. Maybe this will work out better than being nice all the time. PS: If you don’t like what I have to say … block me.

    Unless you’re too dumb. In which case I can provide instructions…
    With pictures.
    You know … just in case ; )

     

  9. I don’t care if other people disagree with me or have a different opinion — but there’s no reason anyone needs to force their opinions on someone or harass / threaten / spread malicious lies about a person because they have a different opinion that you.  Whether or not anyone else ‘believes’ what I have to say doesn’t change the fact that it’s what I believe and so long as I can justify my own beliefs to myself — I have every right to express that. 

    If you disagree with what I have to say & are want to engage in a logical discussion about why I feel the way I do and are willing to hear what I have to say — regardless of whether or not you agree — I’m perfectly willing to do so. 

    If you disagree with what I have to say and don’t want to engage in a logical discussion about it or listen to my point of view / perspective then ignore / block / don’t read what I have to say. 

    Unless you disagree with my opinion & it concerns YOU DIRECTLY — you have no right to harass / threaten / spread malicious rumors to be disrespectful to me for any reason.  If you want to make something about you — that didn’t have anything to do with you — and choose to do so in an irrational, inappropriate way — expect an inappropriate & irrational response.

    The fact that it took over an entire month and a significant amount of effort from friends and family & necessitated contacting the team in order to have him remove the post doesn’t do anything to change my mind about the type of person he is.  At the very least I should have been permitted to report the obscene, defamatory comments directly to Instagram at that time — but was unable to having had my account blocked from doing so. 

    For all of the people who left obscene, defamatory, malicious remarks — without even considering listening to what I had to say — instead reading others’ malicious defamatory remarks & adding your own harassing, threatening obscene & inappropriate comments — YOUR the people who should consider having your mental health evaluated or speak with a therapist to find out why you find it necessary to a person for not liking the same hockey player as you ?  What’s wrong with YOU?

    I’m entitled to give my opinion and your entitled to disagree.  No one has the right to harass, threaten, make obscene remarks, make up malicious lies, spread defamatory rumors or do/say any of the things you people did / said — BECAUSE someone doesn’t LIKE THE SAME HOCKEY PLAYER AS YOU.  It’s irrational, inappropriate and I’d strongly suggest you take some time to find out why you find it necessary to do so.  Especially those of you that do so while at the same time sending messages denouncing others for DOING EXACTLY WHAT YOU DID

    Every single one of you had over a month to delete your comments / remarks from that post and NOT A SINGLE ONE of you did so.  While I certainly appreciate the apologies from some of you, actions speak louder than words. 

    To every single person who had an inappropriate, obscene, libelous, malicious or negative comment directed at me or about me on that post — if I somehow managed to leave you off my ignore / block list for every social media application, I’d appreciate it if you did not contact me or my friends.  If you don’t like something my friends or I have to say, please block / ignore the account[s].  I don’t want to hear anything you have to say be it negative, positive, apologetic or friendly.  You’re not the kind of people I want to be friends with, socialize with, talk to or exchange pleasantries with.  And if I accidentally blocked some extra people because your names came up in conjunction with the others — I don’t care — you should consider getting new friends that don’t attack people for having a different opinion than their own.

     
  10. Update:
    After an entire month of friends & family sending messages of support,  publicizing his disrespectful, immature & inappropriate behavior across several social media sites, along with several calls to Philadelphia Flyers Account reps & PR departments — it appears someone finally had the good sense to convince Steve Mason that hosting hate posts filled with obscene, defamatory & malicious comments about a season ticket holder — probably wasn’t the best idea. 

    _________________________________________________________

    One of steve mason’s fans suggested he was unable to drive past me in the parking lot because I must be ugly.  although the term puckslut seems somewhat contradictory to my being ugly, so the overall message is somewhat confusing. 

    Steve Mason didn’t contradict the statement, nor did he remove the statement.  And he certainly didn’t state that the opinions of what his fans write on his post, given the editorial discretion he interjects with when he does disagree with say, someone calling him ‘mean’.  I’m left to believe Steve Mason must agree with the assessment left by this person whereby the reason Steve Mason was unable to drive past me in the parking lot of the Philadelphia Flyers facility and had to make a sharp turn, going out of his way to avoid passing by me in the parking lot is that … I’m too ugly. 

    If that were the case, why was I not informed of the requirements to be a fan much earlier in the season?  Had someone old me back in September at training camp that I just wasn’t pretty enough to be one of Steve Mason’s fans, knowing how unattractive I am, I wouldn’t have thought anything of [aside from the fact that he’s a conceited overpaid athlete & spent the rest of the season cheering for the visiting team who’ve yet to have an issue with my cheering for them — despite being so unpretty I was unable to be a fan of the home team goaltender.

    Why do I have to wait until the season is halfway over to find out these things.  If you’d just told me I was too fat and / or ugly to be your fan and / or take your picture and / or wear a Flyers Tee Shirt and / or even attend Flyers game, I certainly could have used this information a long time ago.  And giving me dirty looks at every game wasn’t getting the message across successfully. 

    If you thought these things — which you must have — why else would you purposely leave such comments on your post unless you wanted me to see & understand what the problem was. — Why couldn’t you just have told me back in the beginning of the season?  I can assure you had you said something to this effect to me, I absolutely never would have attempted to be your fan, never needed to take a single photograph of you and you wouldn’t have had to deal with a fat ugly girl taking pictures of you before game.  Thank god this person ON YOUR POST YOUR HOSTING finally clued me in.  You were mean to me because I was very unattractive. Now I have the answer I needed.  Stupid me thought a nice person such as yourself wouldn’t have cared what your fans looked like, as long as they believed in you and supported you,  At no point in time prior to now was I made aware of the requirements to be your fan.

    Perhaps to avoid needing to go to such lengths with other fans in the future, you can just elaborate on the specific requirements regarding fans’ appearances so as to avoid such a terrible mistake in the future. 

    What color hair do you require you fans to have? What dress size does a woman need to be in order to be attractive enough to be your fan? How tall does she need to be, do heels count?  Do your fans need to dress a certain way?  I just think it’s only fair if you clarify for other female fans what specifically constitutes UGLY when [as one of your fans suggested] you’ll drive AROUND someone instead of simply drive past them, like your much more respectable teammates?  If your going to be picky about the attractiveness of your fans like this person leaving a message on the post you REFUSE to delete, I think it’s only fair to other females that they know specifically what’s is and isn’t acceptable regarding their looks if they’re going to want to be your fan in the future.
