It comes from the unwavering necessity to nerf Irelia.

I'm not sure

But I think we should nerf Irelia. That's always a good plan.

Sometime around the Riven Patch, a Riot member voiced his opinion about Irelia being overpowered somewhere off the normal League forums. Caused a bit of a hubbub, as back then people were *****ing about Orianna, Brand, Singed, Mordekaiser and such. Most people saw it as Riot ignoring the community.

So now you get: "X is Overpowered! Better nerf Irelia."

A few days(?) before a patch a Rioter said in his Twitter stream they were going to nerf Irelia. Irelia players **** their pants. It was so off the wall as there were (and still are) many, many more issues with balance greater than Irelia that it became sort of a random thing. Hence the posts like "What? Akali OP? You know what this means.... Better nerf Irelia!"

No, they were planning a random nerf to irelia, even though nobody had thought she was OP for a while (at the time). It seemed to be out of nowhere and people were unhappy because they thought she was just fine, and balanced well.

Unfortunately her passive is still problematic in riot's eyes. As said in a post by phreak at 3:30am while he was on vaca a while back.

Edit: Why the downvote...this is 100% true.
