Flyers’ Voráček calls Philly reporter a ‘weasel’

By Anthony Caruso III | Publisher

The Philadelphia Flyers may have won their second game of the season at home on Friday. And against their in-state arch-rivals, the Pittsburgh Penguins in a 5-2 win at the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

But it’s what happened after the game that’s getting the headlines.

Right-winger Jakub Voráček got into a spat Philadelphia Inquirer columnist Mike Sielski. Something angered Voráček that the veteran reporter had written in the Philadelphia-based paper.

“It doesn’t matter what I say, Mike,” Voráček said. “You’re going to write fucking shit every time. So, it doesn’t matter what you say. Yeah, it’s different. I mean, we got four points out of the first two games. I wasn’t even going to answer your question, because you are such a weasel, it’s not even funny. Next question.”

Sielski did not ask a bad question. But this had been brewing for some time.

The reporter believes that it may have been an article from October 2019.

“Two games in, Jake, how different does the season feel, if at all, given the circumstances in the offseason and the condensed schedule and everything?, ” Sielski asked the Flyers forward.

In the coming days — possibly as soon as Saturday — Voráček will have to answer why he said what he said. Right now it’s still unclear despite Sielski believing it was a previous post from October 2019.

The post in question is titled “Flyers coach Alain Vigneault sent a message to Claude Giroux and Jake Voracek, and it was a long time coming.” Despite the backlash, Sielski says that he’ll continue to write about the Flyers.
