from Mike Heika of the Dallas Morning News,
So it has to be a little concerning that social media and the internet have been filled with negative Tyler Seguin stories for the past three days. The latest came Saturday night when Seguin (who can be found at @tylerseguin92 on Twitter) tweeted out: “Only steers and queers in Texas, and I’m not a cow.”
He followed that up this: “Twitter hacking has to stop. My apologies.”
Now, this is all important because Seguin back in April tweeted out a line he felt was funny and included the tag “no homo” in it. That stirred controversy at the time, as Patrick Burke, who is a leader in the social activism campaign “You Can Play” had to talk to Seguin. The campaign is aimed at stopping homophobia in sports, and the NHL strong endorses it, so two references in three months make Seguin notable for all the wrong reasons.
He explained after the April incident: “I think with myself, it was kind of late at night, just talking with my buddies

PARTY IN THE USA
Tyler Seguin was traded by the Boston Bruins on Thursday, reportedly because the team was unhappy with his partying ways. In a wonderfully ironic twist, the youngster just so happened to throw a party the day he was traded. Numerous people tweeted about being at Seguin’s house on the Cape for a July 4 party [...]
BLAME THE HACKERS
Tyler Seguin's Twitter account sent out a homophobic joke, but the Stars player said he was hacked.
Tyler Seguin didn't waste any time making a few enemies in his newest place of residency.
Or did he?
Saturday night, an anti-gay comment appeared on Seguin's Twitter account. A little bit later, he deleted the tweet and said the previous slur was a product of hackers.
Sunday, the 21-year-old posted an apology on Twitter and was temporarily deleting his Twitter account...
The joke is from the movie “Full Metal Jacket”, but no one is going to do the research on that.
Long drive back to Toronto then Dallas for a few days

The saga of Tyler Seguin’s Twitter career was a short and tumultuous one, lets us try and recap the demise of it on which went down on the 4th of July weekend. Tyler Seguin claimed that his Twitter account got hacked on July 6th after a Tweet was posted which didn’t exactly paint his newest place of residence, Texas, in the best of light which you can see below.
Today we finally say goodbye to Tyler Seguin. With the last part of his tribute finishing the saga that is Tyler Seguin, don't expect much of anything regarding him in the future. Like I mentioned on Facebook, we don't care about the partying. Is he a disaster? Sure, but so are many rich young kids. So I guess we will start with one of the more famous photoshops, even if...
Like most of us, Tyler Seguin had some fun on the Fourth of July with a party. And what better place to celebrate America’s independence than on Cape Cod?
Seguin looked like he was having a good time with friends, just like many other 21-year-olds would. Unfortunately for him, though, this may have been the last Fourth of July that he gets to celebrate at the Cape, as he was just...
The Boston Bruins need look no further than Tyler Seguin’s statistics in the 2013 NHL playoffs if they want to justify trading him to the Dallas Stars. Seguin scored only one goal and tallied seven assists in 22 postseason games. That brought his total to six goals in 42 career playoff games with the team. [...]

On July 4th, while America was celebrating it's independence from the British, Peter Chiarelli was busy putting together a massive deal that sent Tyler Seguin, Rich Peverley and Ryan Button to the Dallas Stars. As per tradition, we've put together our favorite Tyler Seguin photoshops, but there's a catch.
We, literally, have hundreds of Seguin 'shops from the...

Twitter is a relatively new but vastly popular social medium. Combine that with
being a young athlete with confidence and cash and you have a potentially
explosive situation. It's a 24/7 world that provides a "no holds barred" social microscope. For every true blue fan that follows an
athlete on Twitter there are just as many waiting and watching for him to mess...
As if Boston sports needed more bad news. Boston athletes were generating enough negative PR as it is. Enter Tyler Seguin.
Well exit Tyler Seguin, he does so many dumb things that he got himself traded out of town to the Dallas Stars. Mostly because he’s such a party animal. To be fair, Tyler Seguin is pretty dumb when he’s sober too. His partying got so bad that the Bruins hired...
