08:29 AM ET 02.15 | Well, Brian O'Reilly didn't help move his son Ryan any closer to the Avalanche. In response to a person tweeting him today, probably over a question of "Will Ryan be back with the Avs?", @coachbri1 said this: "sorry the ave's (sic) don't want him or place value on what he brings. They practice external control boss management." A little later, he also tweeted this, unprompted: "Sure he loved it there and thought the fans were the best. So many great players the ave's dump because of their management style $$$$$." I called Brian after seeing that, and while he didn't want to say anything more publicly, it's fair to say he didn't back away from the comments. They're still there for everybody to see.

Oh TnR you don't disappoint

Another Lindros in the making? Nothing like having daddy fight your battles for you. And, how interesting would it have been if Twitter existed when Lindros was playing? Can just imagine the tweets his parents would have been sending.

Is there a mandate at SI that there HAS to be a new O'Reilly thread every day?

February 15, 2013  09:26 AM ET

I have to say, someone mention this yesterday too. Granted he plays for The Avs, but i really hadn't hear of him a whole lot...until T&R decided he was worth paying attention to
What is this, 4 threads in 3 days on this guy?

My thoughts exactly. And essentially with the same team involved...

February 15, 2013  09:44 AM ET

In fact I really, really hate the word chirp and @ANYFRIGGINLOSER.....

Stuff like "Hey @Flyersdoctors thanks a buttload for nearly killing our son!"

Exactly. But it wouldn't be that polite.

Flavor of the day, so to say.

My son deserves more money! #proudpapa

Sad to say, the O'Reilly saga is the only reason anyone is paying any attention at all to the Avs these days. I'm spending my money on the minor league team in town this season, and that's coming from someone who has been a life-long (50+ years...) hockey fan....
