Lupul, Phaneuf and his wife are rightfully suing the Twitter guy and TSN http://www.marketwired.com/press-release/-1997197.htm


"If TSN and Mr. Adragna do not immediately comply with the demands set out in our letters, we have instructions from our clients to immediately commence a lawsuit against them.

"Our clients will not be discussing this matter with the media. Any questions should be directed to the undersigned."

good on them media has to know their limits and social media trolls being held accountable is even better.

The Leafs short bus is comedy gold.

Someone at TSN is going to lose their job over that if they haven't already. Maybe the live tweet feed on TV will stop after this.

One can only hope it's so stupid having to see Twitter trackers or trackers from other leagues when all someone wants to do is watching hockey.

They either lose their job or will be held accountable financial wise.

You could be the Panthers right now.. Yikes what a mess with goalies.

@TSNBobMcKenzie: Luongo injured. Montoya in. Montoya injured but battling thru with difficulty. FLA goalie coach Rob Tallas dresses as back up, on bench now.

Montoya was barely able to stand up in net, Luongo returned to the net, and Florida are pouring it on but are down by 1 late in the 3rd. Amazing theater.

Maple Leafs and TSN are owned by same parent company ... so that's kind of strange if it did proceed to court.

Other than LGW I assume? I get the feeling that you're probably ok with the social media that you use, just not the social media that other people use. Or did you not think that LGW was social media?

I really expected Leafs fans to be more knowledgeable and rational. Their hatred of Kessel never made sense to me. The guy is a stud. I don't care that he's a goofy looking guy, he's a hard worker who scores and seems to be a great teammate.

Big up to Kessel for sticking up for his captain. The press in that town, and most of the fans, are just ridiculous. Maybe it was posturing to make him seem more of a team guy to potential trade destinations, but good on him for calling them out.

Who in his right mind would want to be part of that media gongshow ? There are also rumors that Craig Button and Dubas had a very heated discussion of course nowhere to be found :(

Leafs could learn a thing or two from the Wings on how to handle the media. The players don't have tzo be available 24/7 and of course not after every practice or optional training. Let's say they get Connor McDavid and he doesn't set the world on fire in his first year man I can already imagine the "bust" articles...

Good for Dubas, Kessel, Lupul (whom I don't like but gained a lot of respect for him) to call out that media bulls***.

So you rip the media for being over-the-top and invasive and then you're begging and wishing for them to expose more drama..

Seems hypocritical to me...

Watching the Maple Leafs lately has got me thinking quite a bit about wildlife documentaries. I feel the same as those cameramen must feel when they follow around the water buffalo recently bitten by a komodo dragon. You know he's poisoned. You know he's dying. You know the end result. Even if they don't. This is only going to get uglier between now and the draft, when (mercifully) the final agonizing death throes should end.

This year has been rough, as well as the 45 before it, but I think next year is the one for them.

I love how professional athletes have stooped so low as to sue a high school kid for a joke he posted on twitter. Everyone is so uptight and can't take a joke anymore. It's a vulgarity I would assume and a statement made "not to be taken seriously" so Lupul and Phaneuf wouldn't have much of a case against the kid. TSN is a different story.

Athletes and celebrities and mocked much worse in more believable ways. One high school kid making a tweet with no connection to the players was obviously made as a joke not to be taken seriously and that's defense against defamation.

I wouldn't dare make assumptions about their fidelity. However, I am curious about what they are claiming in the suit. Slander? Defamation of character?

As if "being a Maple Leaf" wasn't enough to defame or injure their respective characters. Personally, I'd rather be unjustly thought and adulterer, and rightfully be thought a member of, (or worse) captain of, the Toronto Maple Leafs.

The only good news going on with the Maple Leafs are the announcements of past players being honoured on "Legends Row", in front of the Air Canada Centre. Sadly, Google gets a real workout by fans who don't know who they are.

If the NHL counted titles like the NFL and had renamed it the Super Cup or something when then went to 12 teams, they'd be the Lions, none in the modern era.
