According to the posts (which were screengrabbed between 10 and 11AM this morning), the unknown developer has accused Zimmel and HockeyTech of refusing to pay “nearly $6,000” and has accused Zimmel of “threatening to punch Ian Bowman in the throat”.
I want to clarify that I am assuming, based on access to the backend of the AHL app and the ability to push notifications, as well as the threat of a “workplace report” that the person throwing these updates is a developer, possibly a contract coder hired by HockyTech. It is also a simple allegation of threat of violence as there is no evidence presented.
Regardless, allowing a “rogue agent” to start spamming-posting push notifications with allegations of failure to pay and threats of violence makes HockeyTech as well as the AHL look like a beer league gong show in the middle of an otherwise very dull hockey off season.
I will keep an eye on the app as well as the league & HockeyTech’s social media (because I have a very boring day at work lined up) and see if this story develops into anything.
