Hey guys. Was readin this article this mornins and found it interesting. It may be the twitter acount moderator for the Kings who is in hot water,but it seems like the organization as a whole has become rather cocky. Here is the link,and I love the UFC`s follow up tweet to the origional LA tweet.

The official Kings twitter is either run by Dustin Brown or a 12 year old kid.

They've been dissing errbody since they beat us. But what do you expect, eveeryone in LA is an attention whore. Maybe he's trying to secure a gig as a dead guy on CSI.

Meet the dbags that control the Kings account. If you're going to take shots at people, at least don't tuck your tail between your legs and delete tweets.

What goofs. MMA is one hell of a sport. I'd like to see the dweebs who yap on the account try either.
They'd either get their jaw broken in MMA or get a concussion from falling on the ice.

Once a douchebag, always a douchebag.

As arrogant as the Kings' social media team can get, it's downright stupid to be mocking a fanbase that has more followers than the NHL. Aim for the WNBA or MLS if they wish, but UFC brings in much more views than hockey.

Thanks for all the replies guys. I know it's not a story we often see on the news,so I thought it might be interesting to gather some thoughts on the issue.

Winning is good. You get to brag.

Losing is bad, and before late this season, there WAS no 'cocky LA twitter feed.'

Sadly, these guys will come and go like the latest 15 minutes of fame reality star. It's sad because they don't know it.

Bring on the unprofessional 'official team' tweets in the meantime.

Combat sports have been around forever. Do you just hate the UFC, or MMA in general? I will admit that I'm not always a fan of the way the UFC is run. I really liked PRIDE a lot more when it was in Japan, before being bought out.

Those tapout/affliction wearing douchebags I agree are morons. No argument there.



Can't like the Kings at all. A huge lack of class, what with this twitter nonsense (more than once), arrogance, and just lack of professionalism (ex. Jon Quick showing up to the Stanley Cup event drunk and swearing on national TV? Come on.)

Stay classy, LA Kings.

Did you see what those idiots tweeted at the draft?:
"Up next the 4 teams we beat to win the cup."
...And people call the Canucks an arrogant organization? Give me a break!

I don't like them. But no one undeserving wins that Cup. It's the most difficult trophy in pro sports and nobody win by accident.

When we lost to them I was heartbroken, but accepted that they won. But since then they've done so many douchey things that make it harder to have lost to them.
Seriously, combat sports are one of the oldest sports in the world. MMA is just a combination of different combat sports. Are wrestling, boxing, and jiu jitsu not sports either?
Just because they have some jackasses in the fanbase doesn't take away from the sport itself.

No, not really
I mean, we're definitely cocky but our PR guys are too politically correct as is our team. the fans would be cocky but I could never picture the official Canucks' twitter account posting the type of stuff that LA's guys have been posting. We're not that overt with our cockiness.
