Official junior hockey Twitter account blames poor season on being “too drunk and high”

When a sports team has a rocky season you typically see the team's Twitter account try to make the best of a bad situation, pointing out the positives while offering hope that next year will be better. That's the traditional formula. At least, it was until the account representing the Battle Creek Revolution hockey team chose to go in a much more colorful direction.

The B.C. Revolution, a hockey team that plays in the Tier III Junior A NA3HL (confusing, isn't it?), went with the tweet you see above, blaming their bad season on players getting high and drunk all the time. 

The team, a group comprised of 18, 19 and 20 year olds, went 7-38-1-2 on the year.

Obviously, the Tweet and Twitter account have since been deleted. In an interesting twist, the club denied any association to the Twitter account that sent out the controversial Tweet, despite the fact the account in question was listed on the team's official site. Obviously the team is trying to distance themselves from the ordeal, but claiming the account didn't belong to the team when it clearly did is a bit of a head-scratcher.

B.C. Revolution should just follow the example of other professional sports teams that have sent out controversial Tweets – claim you were hacked.
