Ya know that the Turtleboy Sports Revolution is growing when it’s not just the Turtlegram ripping us off. We’ve outgrown them. Time for new outlets to read our articles, use all our information, and pretend like we don’t exist because they’re threatened by us. Today it’s the Boston Herald and Howie Carr:

“IT GOES DEEPER.”

As bad as the Boston Herald’s hackjob was, what the hell was Howie Carr thinking? Didn’t he realize how bad he’d look? He didn’t just blatantly take our shit, he claimed that he “uncovered it.” And not only that, since he works in the Boston metropolitan area, he thinks everything west of 495 is Worcester. Auburn is just a neighborhood of Worcester right? What better way to pretend like you give a shit about a deceased police officer than to not even do the most basic research into what town he worked in?

Oh yea, and throughout the entire column he referred to the cop killer and his brother as “Lambrano.” Printed it at least 50 times. Finally when everyone called him out on it he fixed his mistake and edited it. Pathetic.

When we called him out on it on Twitter he private messaged us:

Nah bitch, it’s not from Facebook. Because she took her Facebook down five minutes after we blew up her spot. We actually tweeted this article at you after you followed us on Twitter, assuming you’d be interested in spreading the word. Instead you went and claimed you uncovered it. You read our blog and took the pictures directly off of it. It’s cool if you wanna use our shit, we don’t mind. But don’t pretend like you uncovered shit, because you didn’t. Embarrassing.

That’s when this guy jumped in:

Steve Robinson? Who the hell is Steve Robinson? Turns out he’s the producer of the Howie Carr Show. Hey Steve, stop talking to us and go fetch Howie a cup of coffee. He needs to wake up.

The Howie bootlicking patrol was out in full force. All one of him:

Turtleoby has 32,000 followers on Facebook. Howie has 26,000. Howie has been around since he started criticizing the Taft administration and Turtleboy only started with Busgate. But please, tell me about how Howie is the one who can give this story exposure. Grandpa Turtleboy loves his work.

Then you’ve got the Herald writer, Chris Villani:

He’s the guy that WEEI brings in on Sunday when the Red Sox aren’t on and Christian Arcand is taking a shit.

But of course the people know the truth. This right here was what you saw on Howie Carr’s page shortly afterwards. It’s what I like to call post-residual Turtle blowback:

    Not to change the subject, but does anyone else notice how oddly misshapen that guy from the Herald’s head is? It’s like his mother changed her mind after the back alley abortionist was already tugging with the forceps.

    Actually didn’t the T&G report this story? That is where all of Turtleboy’s sources are for this story. It’s hard to claim you broke a story when you’re actually quoting another source reporting it.

    I’ve followed Howie for years. I saw this story on TBS well before Howie wrote the article. If someone did give him the info, shame on him and his staff foe not researching it. Howie, not that it means much but I’m very disappointed that you would do thi

    Hank Stolz on WCRN this morning credited turtleboy sports multiple times for breaking this story and the one on North High.

    Never forget that Howie Carr stole Jerry William’s radio show.

    Howie gets “tips” from his listeners. One of them gave him that tip and ripped you off. That’s why he got so many facts wrong. That same person probably stole the photo. I’ll bet he corrects the record today. Don’t hate on him yet.

    The turtleboy’s message is stronger than WRKO’S radio signal.

    Carr took a big credibility hit and I am curous how he fixes that? As a veteran reporter he should have drilled down the source before printing anything. If his “production team” presented it as their find they need to be sacked w/ his mea culpa asap. He’d be the first one screaming if it happened to him. Very disappointed but, spreading the word about TBS regardless.

    Looks like putting a ginormous turtle watermark on everything with “stolen from TBS” is on the menu…

    Fame. It’s a bitch.

    Please credit me with this brilliant idea.

    Howie Carr made a complete “moonbat” of himself.

    After he did a hour on his “scoop” that he stole he started on about the fake Indian. He named all the addresses where she flipped houses way back. He was taking credit for that too. Like he looked them up. I been a listener for years and will continue to listen. But now I won’t be trusting him. He is just a step up from Barnicle. Barnicle made up shit. Carr just steals shit.

    As a longtime fan this is pretty lame on the part of Howie Carr. Howie old media TBS New. Howie is to those over 50 like the T&G is to those over 70.

    I listened to Carr today. He mentioned he got the photos from a competitor. I think he said that, kind of mumbling at the time. At least Kim Carrigan gave you a good spot on their show. Not right Carr did that, especially since he has been around forever. Also, known nationwide. Kid stuff, very amateurish. Needs to man-up and give TB credit pronto. Sad part, he knows better !

    Apparently, lots of Turtle Riders like to use the term “a day late and a dollar short”…i didnt think people said that anymore. Hahaha.

    Howie is a loser anyway. He pays for midget prostitutes to lick his big toe (on his foot, not his penis) while a gimp shoves a pineapple up his ass… the wrong way. Then he likes to crush the midgets under his ass as he climaxes. One of his former aides is a buddy of mine, he had to quit after seeing this happen too many times. He still has night terrors about it.

    Thats what happens when nut jobs get too much power. They start having weird midget sex/crush fetishes…fucking nut jobs.

        Definitely happened. I would bet, at most, a quarter that it definitely happened exactly like that.

    I’m not a big Howie fan but I have to say I am surprised he didn’t credit you… the hell, Howie?

    *Bonus point to the author of “stop pulling a Barnacle.”

    **Double bonus points to Chris Villani (whoever the hell that is)- looking good in his Sears boys suit coat & that fresh hair trim.

    Just by looking at Kevin picture it’s obvious his balls stink. They are probably glued to his thighs… Gross bastard.

      Good god Feisty..way to give me the worst visual. Luckily for him, he probably hasn’t hit puberty yet, so he won’t have to rip out any pubes when he tries to rip his super glued sac off his thigh. *shudders*

    Love seeing Kevin “I am a murderer” Lynch coming to the defense of Howie and putting down Turtleriders. Hopefully someone will run your ass over for 1 million points and kudos from the masses. Go back in the basement where you belong.

      Huge GM and Ford used to laugh at tiny Toyota and Honda, too. But times changed. This is that early 70s equivalent. Media will change big time,, and way faster, but its just starting.
