In Topic: Do Maple Leaf fans deserve better?

I hate twitter. HATE it.

 

Same here, Twitter Facebook the Youtube trolls, the stupid "I have no life so everything offends me idiots" basically everything related to social media.

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.

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.

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

 

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***.

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

Phaneuf was unusually withdrawn at the team’s morning skate in Sunrise. Normally vocal, energetic and loud enough for all to hear, the 29-year-old was quiet in a half-hour skate and declined to speak with media shortly thereafter – a rarity for Toronto’s captain. The Leafs have made the playoffs just once since Kessel and Phaneuf joined the Leafs. Kessel, who was the subject of fierce speculation in recent weeks himself, said Phaneuf is undue of all the criticism lobbed his way. He said his fatigue with the treatment had nothing to do with his own situation, but rather he felt as a teammate, that Phaneuf was owed some backing. “For him, I think being the captain here he takes a lot of it,” Kessel said. “It’s enough. I’m sick of it and I don’t think it should go on anymore.”
This stuff makes me like Kessel even more not just a great goal scorer but also a great team mate easy to go Phil.
