    Itís all in good fun. Wouldíve been exciting to have a scandal, since most of these threads are on life support.

    This thread is definitely the leading candidate for 2018-19 mountain out of a molehill thread.
    Sure, hockeydb isnít the end all be all. But to be fair, sounds like there is also no record of this coachís playing history on elite prospects, SSUís online hockey archives, or the Nashville ECHL all-time roster.

    I know and respect Webb, if he says the guy checks out, thatís good enough for me. But I also donít find it totally out of line for people to inquire where Webb found his stats. Mostly because if there is another source of old hockey stats, Iíd love to have a peek too (and not just to confirm the legitimacy of a coach at a school I just learned of for the first time this week.)

    Not when it possibly destroys the character of someone. That's outright libelous.

    I wasn't talking about asking Webb for his sources. I was talking about KrbFlint's need to create something that doesn't exist.

    I sure as heck didnít intend to start a controversy, I simply responding to a request for some information from a parent who was looking out for their kid and wanted some background on a coach before they decided to spend a bucket of money on University. This website has a lot on people with great knowledge and resources so when I asked around and couldnít find anything I reached out here, which ended up being helpful and as I noted in a previous post was sent the archived data regarding Coach McCauleyís time at SSU. I have not been able however to determine whether he ever did play for the Knights and I have several friends who played for and coached the Knights whom I reached out to and was told they didnít know Coach McCauley.

    I donít see any post here that would meet the US legal definition of ďlibelousĒ, and any coach at any University most certainly would be a pubic figure requiring evidence of malice which as far as I can see doesnít exist in any of the comments here.

    I personally feel it is important for players and parents to get all the information they can when making a big costly decision.

    Absolutely. I have no problem with what you posted.

    What I have a problem with is KrbFlint's flippant comment, "It’s all in good fun. Would’ve been exciting to have a scandal." No, that sort of thing is not in good fun. And, that's the sort of thing which can start running into libelous legal issues.

    First and foremost, I think you're seriously misinterpreting my posts. I will accept some of the blame, for sure, but also - it's apparent - that tone isn't conveyed correctly via message board posts.

    NOWHERE did I, nor anyone else, state that David McCauley was lying. As a matter of fact, my McShane post referenced that SALEM STATE should get their act together, since their online record book has no record of "one of the program's all-time leading scorers". If you didn't see the intent of that post, in that it was not accusatory toward McCauley, I'm sorry. I'll make sure that I spell it out next time.

    When I said "all in good fun", I was referring to the detective work and hunt for some kind of record of Coach's career at SSU.

    Do I find it strange that there is no available record of McCauley's career at Salem State or with the Knights? Yeah, I do. Does it mean he is a liar? No. Did I ever call him a liar? No. I am not saying, nor have I ever said, that Coach McCauley lied on his resume.

    Coming in accusing people of libel and character assassination is way over the top, irresponsible, and terribly inaccurate. I know you're royalty around here, but I had no ill-intent beyond participating in a thread I was interested in (which I did not start, by the way). I won't allow you to publicly accuse me of nefarious intent.
