Globe and Mail Quotes - Fabricated

If you buy something from an SB Nation link, Vox Media may earn a commission. See our ethics statement.

Upon a little further research on William Houston's article in the Globe And Mail with regards to a quote that was made by a "Tampa Radio Host" (Steve Demuig, it turns out. No shock there)...

It turns out the quote itself was pieced together and CHANGED by Houston to encompass ALL of Canada when Demuig's comment was pointed towards one group alone, the Toronto Maple Leafs. This remark came after the Lightning beat the Leafs in Tampa, in reference to all the Maple Leaf fans that show up at the St. Pete Times Forum.

Agreeing with the remark or not, Houston has put a bullseye on Tampa not just from at good contingent of Canada. A fabricated statement which erases any credibility that Mr. Houston had.
