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?
