Steve Bernier’s Check That Crushed The Devils, As Well As The Defacement Of Bernier’s Wikipedia Page


Steve Bernier violently checked L.A.’s Rob Scuderi into the boards during the first period of Game 6 of the Stanley Cup Finals. Bernier received a five-minute major penalty for the hit and got thrown out of the game. The Kings responded with 3 power play goals and can probably be crowned 2012 Stanley Cup champions.

With this check that probably cost the Devils a chance at the Cup, angry Devils fans started the destruction of Bernier’s Wikipedia page. Some examples of the destruction:

WARNING: Some of the stuff these pissed Devils fans added have NSFW language:

“Bernier is a douche who pees sitting down and cost the Devils a chance at winning the Stanley Cup.”

“Bernier is the most hated Devil of all time.”

“Bernier promptly f***ed the Devils in the *** in Game 6 of the Stanley Cup Finals. This was followed by a tarring and feathering in Newark, NJ, which unfortunately or not ended in a public flogging.”

“Bernier’s penis length = 0.02 inches.”

“Bernier is a Bitch ass.”

“Bernier enjoys the feel of sweaty balls against his chin and costing the Devils a chance at a Stanley Cup.”

Wikipedia is now heavily on the case of these angry fans – they’re not letting anyone edit Bernier’s page. If you put your mouse pointer over a small image of a lock, some text said “This article is semi-protected until June 12, 2012.”

Maybe Wikipedia needs to extend the protection of the page for longer. It might take a while for Devils fans to get over the penalty.
