    Just catching up on the rest of last evenings news, some Leaf “fans” make me sick. Going after April Reimer on Twitter is beyond description. I am at a loss.

  • MaxwellHowe

    Throw MacIntyre into this game and hope for one of those heroic “veteran journeyman finally makes it to the bigs and plays spectacularly heroic” moments.  It happens now and then, maybe its the Leafs turn.

  • MaxwellHowe

    @ingy56 Its almost incomprehensible.  You thought a trade demand was probably before?  Its a certainty now IMO

  • TheCanucksnaphook

    Oh boy do we need a win.  I shall take a 3-2 win in the Swamp.

  • BBirde

    Soupcan can’t really be the new “Alfie”. We hate Alfie for his antics and what he did. Soupcan is just annoying.

  • TheCanucksnaphook

    ingy56  and yet it doesnt shock me at all.

  • Burtonboy

    TheCanucksnaphook  Ya just know this is all Rusty’s fault eh phook . The Leafs never win a game when he’s on the road and he’s still not back lol

  • BBirde

    TheCanucksnaphook BBirde  LOL, you may offend a few with that statement.

  • TheCanucksnaphook

    Burtonboy Should we chip in for his flight home today?

  • TheCanucksnaphook

    BBirde I shall retract it.

  • Burtonboy

    TheCanucksnaphook Burtonboy  Might be an idea

  • BBirde

    TheCanucksnaphook BBirde  He looked like he slipped on a wet spot and was falling down the stairs perhaps?

  • http://i.imgur.com/MyKj5C3.gif ingy56

    TheCanucksnaphook ingy56  Shocks me, but doesn’t surprise me. People continue to disappoint me on a regular basis.

  • TheCanucksnaphook

    BBirde sigh, its a new world.

  • BBirde

    ingy56 TheCanucksnaphook  I will say this. Threatening and attacking someone is wrong. But she really shouldn’t have jumped into that twitter war herself. General chirps and name calling should just be ignored. My problem lies in when people threaten.

  • BBirde

    TheCanucksnaphook BBirde  People too soft and sensitive for your liking eh Phook?

  • TheCanucksnaphook

    BBirde Nope, it must be great because its what the world has evolved into.  I am the broken part of the equation.

  • Burtonboy

    ingy56  I’m one who firmly believes all pro athletes and the’re spouses should just stay off twitter. It can be a zoo at times like that

  • BBirde

    TheCanucksnaphook BBirde  Weren’t you always?

  • TheCanucksnaphook

    BBirde I think there was a small window where I fit in.  It has long since closed.

  • BBirde

    TheCanucksnaphook BBirde  It shall be known as Phooks hour.

  • TheCanucksnaphook

    BBirde TheCanucksnaphook  Thanks for rounding it up.

  • http://i.imgur.com/MyKj5C3.gif ingy56

    BBirde ingy56 TheCanucksnaphook  I haven’t read all of it, just a few that were re-posted by a journalist. There is no excuse, period.

    Burtonboy ingy56  There’s nothing to be gained for a pro athlete to be on Twitter, IMHO. It’s a sewer.

  • 4evrblue

    MaxwellHowe nothing to lose right now IMO. James should have had the first 2 goals last night IMO

  • Burtonboy

    DeclanK Burtonboy ingy56  So true

  • Burtonboy

    4evrblue MaxwellHowe  I think its too much to ask of Drew to be honest . If he had a couple of games in the show this yr maybe but it been a few yrs since he’s even played at the NHL level . Besides I don’t think Carlyle would have the guts . If Mac did go in and shit the bed its would be his head on a platter for sure

  • http://i.imgur.com/MyKj5C3.gif ingy56

    DeclanK Burtonboy ingy56  There was a similar dirtbag on this forum last night. Actually wished Gionta would kick Reimer in the head again.

  • Cameron19

    ingy56 DeclanK Burtonboy  God I hate some members of this fan base. So fucking stupid.

  • BBirde

    Going back and taking a look at all of Bolland’s hits last night is nice. There is a sense of peace seeing a few smurfs get flattened.

  • Cameron19

    Well, after their last 4 game losing streak, they rebounded with their best 10 game stretch of the season. Need to do it again or playoffs may disappear.

  • Burtonboy

    Cameron19 ingy56 DeclanK Burtonboy  The dark side of social media . Every crackpot in the world now has a vehicle to spew venom

  • BBirde

    ingy56 DeclanK Burtonboy  Oh that was the douchebag Welder24 or w/e. Basically was only here to troll.

  • Cameron19

    It could be worse….we could be Oilers fans.

  • Burtonboy

    Cameron19  Holy fuck did they ever get creamed

  • http://i.imgur.com/MyKj5C3.gif ingy56

    BBirde ingy56 DeclanK Burtonboy  That’s the one.

  • 4evrblue

    Burtonboy 4evrblueMaxwellHowe If Reimer goes in and shits the bed again it looks like a big mistake too. Damned if you do, damned if you don’t. Personally I go with Drew

  • 4evrblue

    ingy56 BBirdeDeclanKBurtonboythere will always be a few that make the bunch look bad.

  • TheCanucksnaphook

    Cameron19  or Sabres?

  • http://i.imgur.com/MyKj5C3.gif ingy56

    Burtonboy Cameron19 ingy56 DeclanK  Call-in radio has been doing it for years though and exploiting idiots like that for ratings and to create controversy and spur conversation.

  • Cameron19

    BBirde ingy56 DeclanK Burtonboy  I’m such a sucker for trolls. I just want to pull those people through the screen and convince them of their own stupidity. “Do you see!?! Do you see how fucking dumb you are!?!” lol 

    Of course, they win when I do that, so who is the real dummy?

  • TheCanucksnaphook

    Reimer is winning this game today.

  • http://mapleleafshotstove.com/ DeclanK

    Cameron19 ingy56 DeclanK Burtonboy  Not sure it’s just this fan base, Cam. If there are a certain percentage in every fanbase that are morons, it’s just that there are more of then in Leafs Nation because it’s that much bigger than other fanbases.

  • Cameron19

    TheCanucksnaphook Cameron19  An 8-1 loss to your rivals on home ice though? Wow.

  • http://i.imgur.com/MyKj5C3.gif ingy56

    4evrblue ingy56 BBirde DeclanK Burtonboy  Oh, I know but here we have pictures of clothed women being taken down for fear of “offending” someone yet this troll can wish bodily harm on a player and serve no other purpose here than to cause shit and he’s “free’ to express. Boggles my mind.

  • Burtonboy

    ingy56 Burtonboy Cameron19 DeclanK  Talk radio can be controlled a lot better then social media . Everything is on a delay so the real hate gets cut out

  • 4evrblue

    TheCanucksnaphook I’ve been supporting him on this site for so long and even after his concussion when things looked their worst but I just don’t have any confidence in him right now. If he plays I don’t like our chances.

  • http://mapleleafshotstove.com/ DeclanK

    ingy56 4evrblue BBirde DeclanK Burtonboy  Pretty sure he was banned, Ingy.

  • http://i.imgur.com/MyKj5C3.gif ingy56

    DeclanK ingy56 4evrblue BBirde Burtonboy  Good.

  • Cameron19

    DeclanK Cameron19 ingy56 Burtonboy  I know that’s true logically, it just feels like there’s so many stupid people some days.
