The Knoxville Smokies have fined manager Snuff Wallace $50,000 in reaction to a series of comments he made insulting other teams and fans in the Patriot League’s preseason prediction article.

In the article, Wallace called Milwaukee Bear Claws pitching coach Zane Stafford “Loony Zane” and predicting that the Silver City Outlaws would win the west because “the fans will kill off the other team.”

Along with the fine, Smokies owner/GM Jeremiah Mills issued a press release stating, “The opinions of Snuff Wallace are his own and in no way reflect the opinions of the Smokies organization.”

Wallace reacted to the fine was indignation.  “Hell, I was just trying to have a little fun and start some rivalries,” Wallace said.  “But I guess the brownshirts in charge of this team don’t like fun.  Well, fine.  If they don’t want me to talk, I won’t.”

Wallace announced that he has taken a vow of silence until the team rescinds his fine.  According to team sources, the skipper has requested a “glance translator” who will speak on his behalf at all media sessions. It is rumored that the Knoxville front office has reached out to the agent for Seahawks star Marshawn Lynch for advice on how to proceed.  Anonymous sources close to Wallace expect the manager to keep up the silent treatment for “five hours, maybe six if we’re lucky.”
