Buffalo Blogger James Kriger, Credited With “Outing” Turtleboy, Loses Defamation Lawsuit For $40,000 For Making Shit Up About Bills Fans Charity Group

This is James Kriger from upstate New York:

He’s a mentally unstable man who learned how to blog a couple years ago. He also may or may not be a raging alcoholic:

Anyway, James started a blog a while back called It’s mostly about Bills football, but no one really wants to read this lunatic’s ramblings about an irrelevant sports franchise in the worst part of America.

That’s why he has to resort to making things up as he goes along for page views. Ya see, James Kriger is the original “I know who Turtleboy is” guy. We did a blog a few years back on the Turtleboy family’s trip to Buffalo to watch the Patriots do what they do every year in Buffalo – murder the biggest joke of a franchise in the NFL. We videotaped our experience while tailgating alongside Bills mafia. Basically they tip you over while you’re trying to piss in the porta-potty and call you homos over and over again because political correctness never came to Buffalo:

All in good fun though. We know the people of Buffalo are good folk, savage as they may be.

But James Kriger took it personal. REALLY personal. And he was determined to stand up for the good folks of Buffalo who had been so wronged by a blog. After doing some Internet sleuthing he came to the illogical conclusion that Turtleboy is just one person – a history teacher at Shepherd Hill Regional High School. This of course was after he reached the conclusion that Turtleboy was two other people in previous blogs, but since it was a teacher this time around, it stuck. Everyone’s read that blog by now, and countless media outlets including the Turtlegram and Gazette, have used it as evidence that Turtleboy is this former teacher from Dudley.

Well, as it turns out James Kriger has a history of doing stuff like this, and now he’s paying the price for it:

A North Collins-based blogger has been ordered by a judge to pay almost $38,289 in damages and legal fees to Bills Fan Thunder, a children’s charity organization made up of Buffalo Bills’ football fans. In her order, State Supreme Court Justice E. Jeannette Ogden said she found that blogger James Kriger made statements that “constitute defamation” in a series of posts alleging criminal activity by Bills Fan Thunder and its president, Charles Pellien, during the 2015 National Football League season. Pellien and his organization denied Kriger’s allegations and filed a defamation lawsuit against Kriger in October 2015.

Pellien claimed that his group ran into difficulties with fundraising after Kriger’s posts. Kriger told The Buffalo News over the summer that he did nothing wrong. He said he was not aware of Ogden’s ruling until a News reporter contacted him.

Yup, he went after a charity that brings disadvantaged kids to Bills games. He literally made shit up about them, just like he did about Turtleboy, except we didn’t bother pursuing legal charges against him. They did. Because one of the men associated with Bills Fan Thunder is Michael Caputo. Google him. According to this Wikipedia page he has ties to the covert operations during the Reagan administration.

So yea, James Kriger was feeling good about himself after “outing” Turtleboy. He believed his newfound fame made him some sort muckraker, so he started making more shit up about more people until he eventually got busted. Now he owes $40,000 that he doesn’t have for defamation. Actual, real, defamation. Not the Dick N. Vulva kind.

This is why you can’t trust the MSM, particularly when it comes to any criticisms they have about our blog or who “Turtleboy” is. Because they use people like James Kriger as sources.

    1) lay off of the Bills. It’s about the only thing we have in this city.
    2) the comment from BillsRule stating Carl Paladino is a good guy…Carl Paladino is one of the pieces of shit the Jim Kriger AKA Frigger AKA Taliban Jimmy (hehehe) takes his political leanings from. Paladino referred to Michelle Obama as an “ape in heals.”
    3) Jim grew up around the corner from me. He was a little shit that I felt bad for and used to sell weed to 20+ years ago. He was my friend’s little brother’s friend, and he was a joke back then. I had my own encounter with him online a few years ago. I did to him what he likes to do to other people: I screen capped EVERYTHING he said and when he decided to come at me while my back was turned, I blindsided him instead.
    Believe it or not, this sack of shit is married. Not to a woman, though. Oh, no no no. He married a female of the bovine variety. I asked him how much cheaper it was to just put her out back to graze rather than buy her actual food. He didn’t like that.
    Taliban Jimmy is about 6’2” and weighs about 125. He’s not tough. He’s all bark and absolutely ZERO bite.

    I bet he has never slept with a member of the opposite sex, that’s why he’s so fucked up in the head. Turtle Boy should get him a hooker then the madness will cease!

    You listen, and you listen good — Don’t you ever write about anyone from Buffalo unless it’s to report they won the Congressional Medal of Honor. There’s a jerk in every town, but people from Buffalo are too stupid to re-assess the direction of their lives after becoming TB famous.
    So that’s a point on moot. When you have decent people like Carl Paladino being driven off the road by the representatives of the walking-street-zombies, that have all day to walk around, (with noplace particular where to go)…. The city is infested with feral sidewalk zombies who don’t understand Spanish How Dare you make fun of these poor institutional & structurally oppressed… Go OD on some bad batch of heroin….
