I'm starting to lose confidence in MLSE. It seems there is a lot more going on behind closed doors, than what we are told. FC Toronto club seems to be falling apart now that Tim is leaving. What's next, Raptors or Leafs? Damn them and their distractions. Keep your dirty laundry out of the public eye and let the players play without uncertainty within management. Now I'm certain the Leafs downfall last season wasn't because of the players. It must be depressing to work under conditions like that. The Leafs organization is becoming like a prostitute. Everybody is having a go at her. Someone please take her off the streets and get her some rehab. Us fans don't like the abuse we've had to take all these years.

We need a countdown on the side of the site for all events, rookie tourny, training camp, pre-season and regular season. 

Makes it easier to remember the dates for all.

@deedrag The problem isn't the Leafs, the problem is the pimp.

@deedrag There's not much you can do.  You can trust the people who make the decisions or not.  It's tough being really attached to something you have no control over.  You can celebrate the victories and mourn the losses and if that's too hard to take emotionally the only answer is to let it go.  I'm sure lots of people do get fed up.  All we have in the end is hope.  Great when you finally win but the journey is not an easy one.

@deedrag Its Toronto.  The problem is Toronto.  The last several years it seems there is nothing Toronto can't F up.  Hurry up and give Rob Ford 4 more years; he won't be sober too much longer

@4evrblue pre-type and use cut and paste functions during the game.  Saves valuable seconds of waiting to relieve the frustration

Year 43 for me. I remember as a kid after a crappy Leafs season 1968 my dad saying to me, "Don't worry. They can't possibly be that bad next year."

@-Keon @deedrag  It was because Shanny was keeping stuff out of the Media and keeping quiet in general.

@-Keon @deedrag I had confidence in Tim L not MLSE and when it appeared as though he had full control I was fairly happy.

@Loric76 @Komas Taberle

Yep he would be perfect on the right wing second line, he is a bonafide NHLr, now all we have to do is get Detroit to accept Franson and Ashton.

@dlb Mad Sad part is only 20 something percent of the money goes to the people in need. 


I'm pretty sure the ALS part is pretty well explained now so no need to really stress on it but well done.

@TheCanucksnaphook @Burtonboy digging deep in the memory banks for an instance when he had ever done anything remotely resembling it.  I don't remember Carlyle as a player, certainly not in his prime, but I don't imagine he was speedy gonzales.  He got a bunch of points in the 80s, but who didn't?

@LeafFan15 @dlb Mad That statistic (I think it was 27%?) was for years previous when they didn't make even close to as much money.  The fixed costs of operating the society will remain roughly the same so the percentage towards research/treatment should spike dramatically.  If they can't hit over 90% on 100 million then somebody is stealing.
