It seems as though the SN consensus was "barely miss the playoffs"?

(as opposed to "miss the playoffs and be very bad")
So you provided me a link to show they're picking the Leaves to miss the playoffs..

You just said they stated the Leaves would be so good and a contender.

THE FANS started the uproar... the media merely reported the facts.
This is incorrect. It was started by the media.

The media was bombarded by reactions from Leaf fans saying they are making a big deal out of nothing.

I do believe it was the fan that threw the jersey to kick it all off.....

Or maybe it was the Leaves players themselves by sucking shit and forcing the fan's hand.....

Or maybe it was the parade of ass clowns who have coached, managed, and scouted, for the Leaves that anointed a group of losers as leaders that made the team suck that forced the fan's hand......

Either way you spin it. The Leaves are joke.

The jersey throw did not kick anything off. It's 1 person. That's not related to the fuss over not saluting. They threw waffles 3 years ago.

The Leaves are the only team that is in a playoff spot, yet deemed "Horrible". They are seen as the same as Edmonton, Carlolina. Buffalo. The only issue is they are a playoff team, not a bottom feeder. They currently have the 3rd most goals scored in the NHL.

Yeah, you hold onto that. You can coddle that thought in April when we won't be seeing you around these parts.

Sure, and the Canucks were first overall a couple of days ago.

It's a long season fish breath.

Actually, I heard them say the league might look into it.
If the league looks into it... it would only be to appease all the morons screaming at the centre of the universe.

No way though will said morons get their... "suspension". Image

UMMMM what part of the following do you not understand...

"Rip the media for reporting it if you want, but comments citing outrage over “Salute-gate” lit up Twitter immediately after the game, long before it appeared on a blog or the web or TV highlights. These were the fans speaking, not the media".

Kessel called the jersey-toss "classless and disrespectful".

The very next game the Leaves returned the favour by not saluting the fans.

Oh yes, the players gave the Toronto boo-birds the finger and it's hilarious!

Yeah.....3 points up on the Florida Panthers who have 2 games in hand on them thar Leaves.

Don't worry. Phyllis and Diana will decide they have earned their salaries come end of February and their goaltenders will finally collapse behind the porous blueline.

At least if Nonis has a brain he'll be able to try and package up his 6th overall pick with a couple of players and shoot for McDavid or Eichel.

Speaking of Toronto media, I read ANOTHER story about the Leaves on TSN and just to see what happens I post something like ' I would be interested to see a statistical breakdown of how many Leaf stories there are as compared to other Canadian teams. Also why show all the warts on Toronto when other Canadian teams are doing so well eh?' You guessed it. Not posted by the moderator.

Playing in Toronto must be a nightmare. It is a great town to live in but the focus on the team comes from a city twice the size of Vancouver and they do not pay much attention to Jays or Argos in comparison. A rookie coming in to town is probably cynical about the media by the end of their first year, and if not soon after.

Look what they did to Reimer who is a decent dude and who is competent most of the time ( I am not killing with faint praise. He is no Roy or Johnny Bower). He was proclaimed Messiah the first year and his second year they cut him open and plopped his guts out on the sidewalk for everyone to see. Now they are doing the same to Bernier. The media in Van is bad and Gallagher should go but it is not the level of T.O.
