Finally Kessel is fed up with the media crap in Toronto. Lupul, Phaneuf and even Dubas followed with no comment when asked questions. http://www.tsn.ca/i-...n-said-1.221076

 

This stuff makes me like Kessel even more not just a great goal scorer but also a great team mate easy to go Phil.

 

And it's this continued deterioration that we see in T.O. that will make Babs re-sign with the Wings.

Where these guys expecting a media friendly environment when they signed in Toronto?  Everybody know, you win in Toronto and you're a hero.  You lose in Toronto you're a dog.  Buyer beware.

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***.

Kessel, Lupul, Dubas, Phaneuf?  They all chose to take jobs there.

Lupul, Phaneuf and his wife are rightfully suing the Twitter guy and TSN http://www.marketwir...se/-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.

That would have been sweet to see a goalie coach go in though.

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?

Careful.  You might owe Phil Kessel an apology.  And as I understand it, the Maple Leafs employ of team of lawyers for round the clock protection from hockey fans.

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.
Check out my short e-book on the Red Wings' 1937 Stanley Cup championship entitled: "Nothing Could Keep 'Em Down." Please download it from my profile at Smashwords: https://www.smashwor...ile/view/victor

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.
