    With all due respect to Tim and Shanny , I will begin to listen to what they say, IMMEDIATELY after the Leafs actually win a playoff series. Until then, I wont be paying much attention to all the suitspeak  coming out of the ACC.  Kind of tired listening to guys who talk the talk, but cant walk the walk .

    HeatherRickAkin  Yup, with you there. I’ll listen but I’m firmly in the “show me” camp.

  • ShiftyD

    Hockey talk starts around the 7 minute mark if anyone just wants to hear talk in regards to the Leafs

    I think that’s everyone’s take right now. He’s a supercharged cheerleader trying to move the dial on the organization’s ambitions and dreams. He’s pushing everyone and trying to make bold statements to put everyone under enormous pressure to win. Those who falter get turfed. I like it.

    DeclanK ingy56 HeatherRickAkin  There’s certainly a large sector of the fanbase who aren’t scarred like some of us veterans so I get that he’s not likely trying to reach out to us right now.

    Mason has been so good, but the Flyers are blowing it.

  • ShiftyD

    “I’ll take the heat here”

    “I let this team alone and I shouldn’t have”

    “I thought this team was ok, it’s not”

    Some interesting things he discusses here

  • ShiftyD

    I truly do believe he is pissed off and mad about it where the Leafs are concerned

    TSN site down fuck raptors must of killed em.

  • MaxwellHowe

    ShiftyD Seems to be quite an indictment of Nonis IMO

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

    wiski  They doing budget cutbacks too?

  • ShiftyD

    To clarify (imo) what he means by “I let this team alone….” isn’t him meddling but rather providing the push as he refers to as his responsibility later on in the interview.

  • wiski

    ingy56  Nice seats

  • ShiftyD

    MaxwellHowe ShiftyD  No, he mentions at the same time that he feels Nonis got an undue amount of blame

  • wiski

    ingy56 wiski  Thought I could stream the raptor game but servers are gagging

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

    wiski ingy56  49-40 Raptors right now

  • ShiftyD

    I don’t know about all you cynical old buggers  ;D

    I liked what he had to say, the things he discussed, the process that they are going through and that he’s pissed off.

    The judgement can come on the results

  • ShiftyD

    wiski    I wouldn’t doubt that they killed em. Apparently Raptors are absolutely vicious. I wouldn’t have one as a pet

  • MaxwellHowe

    ShiftyD MaxwellHowe I assume when he says he left the team alone he means he left it to Nonis.

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

    ShiftyD wiski  Had one once, but he died centuries ago :)

  • MaxwellHowe

    ShiftyD I should probably try and stop interpreting things that are just flying off the top of his head.

  • The_Polish_Cannon

    ShiftyD  I expect big changes this season. Liewiki is a winner and I believe he’ll do whatever it takes to make this right and put this team on the right track

  • ShiftyD

    ingy56 ShiftyDwiski  pfffffft figures. All bark no bite I guess ;D

  • MaxwellHowe

    Rangers all over the Flyers

  • ShiftyD

    MaxwellHowe ShiftyD
       I don’t know, did you listen to the interview? Serious question, not being a smart ass.

  • The_Polish_Cannon

    ingy56  I bet bernier is mentioning how he faces as many shots in a game, as the raps have in the first half

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

    wiski ingy56  They know a guy…

  • ShiftyD

    MaxwellHowe   Complete reversal from last nights game

  • ShiftyD

    Brut? LOL They still make that?  Does anyone actually buy it?

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

    61-44 Raptors half-time

  • phaneufoundlander

  • The_Polish_Cannon

  • ShiftyD

    These are just snippits of a longer response to a question.

  • BrandonCheema

    Kyle Lowry banks in a running contact-filled three at the buzzer, and the Raptors end the half on a 28-4 run. Hooooo boy.

  • ShiftyD

    BrandonCheema    Me too. GO LEAFS!!!!!!!!!!! Fix er up good!
