Rory Fitzpatrick blog coverage

Rory Fitzpatrick NHL All-Star Campaign

In late November 2006, an online write-in campaign began supporting Rory Fitzpatrick for the online balloting for the 2007 NHL All-Star game.  In final voting results, Rory finished in third place among Western Conference defensemen with 550,177 votes. The top two finishers got starting spots. Voting ended January 2, 2007.  There has been extensive media and blog coverage of the improbable campaign. The first blog post on the Rory Fitzpatrick campaign appears to be from Boltsmag on November 20, 2006.

General coverage

I’ve put together a general post on the Rory Fitzpatrick campaign.

This entry covers blog posts November 20, 2006-present.

It does not cover general media stories, for more than 115 of those, go here

Here’s my catalogue of blog coverage, with 286 entries as of January 16, 2007 (link on left is to the blog, link on right is to the specific post), along in some cases with an excerpt from the post:

False Gods (1/10) ‘On the Kwan’ Special: Rory Fitzpatrick

You conducted yourself with exemplary grace in a situation that snowballed into circus-like proportions. You endured the barbs and brickbats of jerks such as Don Cherry and Wayne Gretzky with nary a retort (though we did love the one jab you allowed yourself, about how a couple of months ago no one cared about the all-star game and now it’s “so precious.”) Cherry went so far as to call you a “freak,” saying your fans were laughing at you, not with you. In typical fashion, his Coaches’ Corner rant was full of mistakes (like when he said you haven’t played all year). Gretzky said you didn’t deserve to be there, even if the fans did vote you in. Others said the campaign made a mockery of the all-star game.We tip our hats to you. By taking the high road, remaining modest and understated, you showed us all why so many were willing to try and get you into the starting lineup. (1/10) #18 on the ice, but … er … #3 in our hearts?

The dream is over for Rory Fitzpatrick: The NHL’s story of the year – the write-in All-Star candidacy that earned a staggering 550K votes – fell 23,000 votes short. But it set a new standard for grassroots phenomena in the NHL and across fan-balloting in sports.

Finally, if the league has a heart and a conscience and a bit of a sense of humor, it sends Rory Fitzpatrick as well. The people have spoken and if you start Cheechoo over Selanne because of it, you put Fitzpatrick (who finished third in voting for defensemen in the west) on the team. It’s the right thing to do and for those in the league offices looking for a little media attention, this is a great story for outlets that don’t normally cover hockey and are looking for a little fun and human interest.  All in all, it was a job well done by the fans and the league just needs to round it out now for this year’s All-Star Game to have some pretty exciting potential.

“Critics like the CBC’s Scott Morrison have been vocal, stating that fans have exploited a “flaw” with the NHL’s voting system by casting ballots for someone who is “unworthy”.  Hockey Night in Canada’s Don Cherry even shared his thoughts recently calling the support of Fitzpatrick a joke. In this context, I disagree.  First and foremost, this is a ballot for an All-Star game, not a general election.  The process in place allows for multiple votes, and as such the results could be skewed by those who take the time to vote often.  The intention was for fans to vote for who they wanted to see in the lineup.  If the purpose was for only the “deserving” players who are having a good year to appear, then it defeats the purpose of the NHL allowing fans to select a write-in candidate.”

“I think this year’s All-Star Game will be a success all because of one, Rory Fitzpatrick. The fans discovered a flaw in the system and they exposed it, instead of the League or mediots getting all up-in-arms about the whole thing, they should learn from this and make the necessary changes. However, considering how much publicity this whole campaign got, the League couldn’t have bought better publicity. Fitzpatrick was on ESPN talking about the campaign for crying out loud, and ESPN usually hates hockey like it’s the red-headed stepchild of major sports … Critics of this campaign need to chill the heck out about the fans making the All-Star game seem like a joke when everybody already knows it’s a joke.”

hLog {Hockey’s Ladies of Greatness} (1/3) Hey Now, You’re an All-Star (the excerpt below from HeatherB’s hLog blog post is a succinct prologue to my upcoming analysis that Don Cherry’s rant on HNIC two weeks ago energized the base and turned the undecideds)

“When the ‘Vote for Rory’ campaign first started, I hated it for a couple of reasons. First of all, for me Rory will always be the guy who failed to clear the puck that Henrik Tallinder, Teppo Numminen, Dmitri Kalinin, or Jay McKee would’ve cleared in the last game of the ECF last year. (I know, I know. It’s possible none of those guys would’ve cleared it before Brind’Amour got to it. Let me have my whiny moment, people!) … No matter how much meaning people have tried to put behind the “Vote for Rory” campaign, to me it just seems like a joke that got out of hand…
However, once the Wayne Gretzkys and Don Cherrys of the world started complaining about ‘Vote for Rory’ and what a joke it was and how embarassing it was, I started to like it. (Contrarian at heart!) Come on, guys… It’s an exhibition game! … It’s never really been about who’s having the best season or who’s the most deserving. It’s about who the fans want to see. … All the signs and videos people have created to go with the Rory campaign are great – funny, entertaining, clever. I especially love the anti-Lidstrom, Pronger, and Niedermayer videos. Are you seriously going to tell me that it’s bad that people are talking about and noticing hockey? Lighten up and have some fun, guys! It won’t hurt, I promise!”

Canucks Blog (1/3) Henderson – Vote for Sami

 “I also believe it might be a good idea to require voters to answer a series of randomly selected hockey questions before they are allowed to have their say. This might eliminate the type of fans who vote year after year for Mike Modano because, you know, he’s so cute.”

But Seriously (1/3) Two Minutes for Popularity

“Hockey guru and fashion disaster Don Cherry referred to Fitzpatrick’s popularity as ‘a joke’ and insisted that people are laughing at the
Vancouver defenseman (and Cherry should know a thing or two about being laughed at).  When asked about the situation, Phoenix Coyotes head coach Wayne Gretzky said that Fitzpatrick getting into the all-star game would be ‘100 percent wrong.’  There’s no word yet on whether or not Gretzky’s wife is taking bets on Fitzpatrick’s situation.”

Wikinomics (1/2) The Ongoing Rory Dilemma (a great read)

“In a previous post, colleague Mike Dover talked about how journeyman NHL defenseman Rory Fitzpatrick is currently a contender for the all-star team … Many hockey fans, commentators and other experts with varying degrees of knowledge have expressed outrage at this development … But when you take a step back and look at the whole thing, it really isn’t that bad. It certainly highlights how powerful the Internet can be for engaging people, and may in time prove just how wise we can collectively be. Experts are deriding these voters as idiots that are corrupting the all-star game and ruining it for true fans. But it might actually be true fans – those that appreciate all the different contributors to a hockey game – that are driving this. Through the power of the Internet, the people may just be selecting a ‘behind the scenes’ player to show their appreciation to them all, and the game itself. Is there really anything wrong with that? Have the fans come up with something good for the game that no expert would have thought of?”

Maxwell’s House (12/29) Sour Grapes (includes link to the YouTube video of the coaches corner segment where Cherry goes after Rory)

“As has become his custom, Don Cherry has run his mouth off about something he knows absolutely nothing about. During last week’s “Coach’s Corner”, the cantankerous one railed against the campaign to make Vancouver Canucks’ defenceman Rory Fitzpatrick an all-star … Said Cherry: ‘The league is not a joke. This is a joke. This is supposed to be funny.’ So far, no problem. Unfortunately, Cherry took it a step further and continued his attack by going after Fitzpatrick personally. ‘They got him as a jerk. This is a guy, who from now on, he’ll be known as … the jerk, the freak,’ he said. Cherry’s idiocy was magnified by Fitzpatrick’s calm and reasoned response to the attack. ‘I think there’s probably a lot of reasons I shouldn’t be on the all-star team, I don’t think ‘freak’ and ‘jerk’ are two of those reasons. I don’t know why anybody would attack me personally. I haven’t done anything.’

    So I’m the first online (blog — I realize the message board community started things) coverage of the Rory movement?? Cool 😀

  2. gercohen Says:

    John, yes the first I could find was your post on blotsblog on 11/20, using bloglines, technorati, google alerts, google, other search engines, looking at what other folks were mentioning on blogs, and having followed it myself since November 23.

  3. John F Says:

    Totally cool, never had a scoop at Boltsmag like this before… Though it’s not really a scoop if it’s a story that will inevitably come out.

  4. Lynda West Says:
