In Topic: Leafs Announcers Will No Longer Travel With the Team

29 September 2015 - 01:42 PM

TML GM Lou Lamoriello has put the announcers on the no-fly list for the Leafs.  They will call away games from a monitor.  This will save approximately $200,000 per season.  The team is owned by Rogers and Bell, who split the radio rights.  It's been suggested the team could pay for the travel, but the money would still be coming out of their pocket, so I'm not sure that will happen.

I'd be super pissed if I didn't get my Ken Daniels for away games.  


How much is Leafs Nation willing to put up with?  How much goodwill has hiring Babcock earned them?  And how long do you think it will be before LN finally declares they're mad as hell and they won't take it anymore?


How long? As long as Detroit fans still attend and watch Lions games.

Tonight will be Dylan Larkin's debut on the JLA ice playing for his hometown Detroit Red Wings.  Stop and think about that for a minute. I know it happens all over the place from time to time, but the first shift he takes can you imagine the tears flowing from the eyes of his dad and mom? Can you just imagine for a minute all the years of practices, getting up at 3am, all the travel all the equipment purchased, all the money spent, all the memories of their child first learning how to skate using a chair or one of the newer plastic apparatus' they have now, all the tears Dylan cried when he thought he couldn't do it, he'd fall down and not want to get back up...my God, it's not only a rush of those memories because Dylan made it to the NHL, and that is overwhelming enough, 99% of the families who go through all the same motions don't even get a sniff of the NHL, but he was drafted by and is now playing for the hometown Detroitf****** Red Wings! Pardon my French.


Talk about dream of dreams, Mr. and Mrs. Larkin congratulations, God bless you and let those tears flow! All the years and struggles you have endured, the times you wanted to give up or had to call in sick to work to go to the next tournament or game or parent meeting, it has all been worth it.  Exhale. You deserve it.  I can't even imagine the euphoria they will be feeling tonight when he steps onto that hallowed ice. It most certainly is not his first time on that ice surface, hell, even two of my son's played tourney's on that ice, but as he pulls that sweater over his head, ties his laces tight, briefly remembering how many times his father had to do it for him, maybe just one more time wishing dad would make sure they were just right so he wouldn't fall and could share in this one time moment with him.  As he walks down that hallway and puts his first foot onto that ice for the first time as a Detroit Red Wing in the arena he grew up (as well as his father grew up) watching their favorite players and fantasizing about being an NHL player.  You made it, you are a Detroit Red Wing....Wow.

Wasn't Larkin a Leafs fan?

Guess I'll have to turn in my bro card, but if you have gray hair and you're hitting someone that is taking duck lips/peace sign selfies, there's something not right with you. 


If you have grey hair and you're hitting that, more power to him. Where's the thread about non-Red Wings you like the most?


Remember, Jagr was asleep when duckface took her picture. I assume she wasn't making that face while the two were awake in bed together. Maybe an O-face. :D

to be fair Snow isn't known for being respectful either...this gm cant get his opinion across without swearing, it's pathetic. This also the same guy who took Nabakov away from us.

Handing out #66 is just a new low.

who in his right mind would even attempt to wear it? what's next 99? this is disrespectful to Lemieux unbelievable


Meh, league wide retiring of numbers is absurd. Players can't wear 66 but they can wear 9? Silly.

What a great way to end your career. 


Going from having everyone like you and your hard work, to having most fans hating your guts for fleecing the Wings year after year due to your greed/ego, while some of the young up and comers on the team are getting paid less than your long since washed up ass.


Congrats Cleary!  Can't wait until you are gone from this team for good and I never have to hear your name again...and I actually used to like you.

The supposed best organization in hockey is getting "fleeced" by a player on the wrong side of 35?
