Bob Gets Serious

It was only a few days ago that we were all laughing a Bob Phillips ‘revelations’ and laughing at what a bitter and twisted man he had become. Well, tonight that all changed as Phillips revealed details of Steelers players contracts today in a sinister twist on his Hockileaks blog. This all came about after the Sheffield Star published this article today regarding Rob Globke’s 2-year contract being terminated. In response to this and possibly to further vilify Steelers owner Paul Ragan, Phillips has published Globke’s contract on Hockileaks, stating clearly that Globke had a ‘Guaranteed 2-year contract’.
Not content with that, Phillips has also revealed details of changes to Ashley Tait’s contract in order for Steelers to appear to be below the wage-cap this season, something that Ragan has very much been ‘Holier than thou’ about this close season.
My fear is that Bob will bring Ragan down with these new revelations and as Steelers are what can only be classed as ‘damaged goods’ I can’t see them being saved again. Now it has been very well documented that I don’t like the Steelers on here and on various forums throughout the country, but I don’t want them to die. I want them to be shite, that goes without saying, but I want to watch them being shite, that’s not possible if they disappear.
OK, everything that Bob says has to be taken with a very large pinch of salt, but this vendetta he has with Ragan appears to be personal, and I don’t think he’ll stop until he has driven Ragan out and if that leads to Steelers demise as I expect it would, it would just be blood curdingly stupid!
Coupled with this rumours have appeared that all is not well at Ragan’s other EIHL club, Cardiff Devils. The Inferno Forum has rumours that there are problems at the principalities EIHL team. Rumours have surfaced of wage budget cuts, going with less than the maximum 10 imports and sponsors not returning.
I have a very bad feeling about all of this, but somehow I think this could turn out to be the Elite League’s most turbulent summer yet. I really hope I’m wrong.

    We at Hockileaks can assure your readers this is not personal, it is simply exposing the truth about one man who proclaims to have an impeccable reputation, horse shit is all we can say!

    Hockileaks is not about one club or one owner; it will shortly expose the league in its current format and owners for what they actually are, in my opinion absolute fraudsters.

    I can see why you’ve got the needle against some of the league owners and others. You were vilified in the press for things that occur regularly at other clubs & yes, some players have lied about injuries. But seriously, what’s the point of this? It doesn’t achieve anything.

    We’ve always liked you personally – don’t take what I wrote as anything other than banter. I know the shenanigans that goes on at other clubs & think most people have a rough idea.
