Florida Panthers' President Michael Yormark Has Twitter Dust-Up With Devils Fan

The Florida Panthers club president Michael Yormark is well-known for his interaction with fans on Twitter but on Tuesday, he got into a bit of a spat with a Devils fan who mocked him. Yormark said the Cats would stop selling rats at their store because fans were tossing them on the ice during face-offs and the regular course of live action. He intimated that he thought the Devils fans were the ones tossing the rats, hoping to create a potential delay of game penalty. New Jersey fan Lauren Rubino accused Yormark of acting like an ass, and the Florida President promptly replied:

Well, she HAD 70 followers. The spat went viral shortly thereafter, with Greg Wyshynski getting in her corner and the Newark Star-Ledger picking up the story. As of this writing, she's just shy of 3500 followers -- and has 211 more followers than Yormark. Oh, and the club also gave her two tickets to a suite at the Prudential Center for Game 6.
