The Falconer takes on the AJC

The Falconer writes an Atlanta Thrashers blog, “Do the Thrashers Have Large Talons?” The Craig Custance article in the Atlanta Journal Constitution has stirred the pot, among Wolves fans and Thrashers fans, insinuating the alliance between Chicago Wolves and the Atlanta Thrashers is flawed.

The Falconer did extensive research on the development of American Hockey League players to the NHL since the Wolves first affiliated with the Thrashers. It is a damning indictment of the care that we believe professional journalist should have in preparing a story. “It seems clear to me that if you look at the entire time period of the Thrashers-Wolves affiliation that the Wolves have produced players who made the NHL. But the majority of those NHL players are on someone else's roster. Is that the Wolves fault?,” he writes.

The Falconer did an outstanding job at refuting the AJC. Unfortunately they have turned into tabloid journalists over there and can't seem to report the facts to back up their stories. Funny how the truth, facts and stats are now coming from all us bloggers.
