@Bon Scott was a Leaf fan @DJBrianBurke No problem. Sucks that Rogers (and WB) pinged you. There are ways to work around everything, just need to know how ;) Paying a little helps too.

@Bon Scott was a Leaf fan My first reaction was to hate the choice because of his Habs love, but then I reminded myself about how much I like him on his radio show and how he will most likely be an excellent host. As long as he keeps the Leafs hate to a minimum. I know hard to do on a CBC broadcast unless your name is Cherry.

@Alec Brownscombe @MLHS_Luke @Burtonboy I was making a joke :) Though in that Q&A posted the other day he looked bigger. I don't care as long as he plays well and doesn't affect his overall health.

@Jmessih I want to see what Kontiola can bring, maybe it's the new car smell or the flashes of talent he showed in Europe and the Olympics and reading the hype from other players or... I don't know.

@Reether Thanks a lot for the tip! I'm dropping our satellite and I would have probably have missed the sale. I was debating between this and the new Rogers' package. This makes it a pretty easy choice.

@Bon Scott was a Leaf fan @DJBrianBurke @Optimustic @loomx @Jmessih Oh I remember that. I'm was nowhere near Aurora, so I wasn't able to jump on that deal. Nice to see someone take advantage of it, with a player that is still with the Leafs.

@Top Jimmy That has to be the plan in the long run. ACC is going to be around for a while and I really hope there will be great players that deserve the same recognition in the future.

@Top Jimmy Leafs have such a long history, it would be sad if they left player from the 40s and earlier out just because the average fan didn't know who Conacher was.

@Bon Scott was a Leaf fan @Burtonboy I understand the three guys they chose. I have to think if it wasn't Sittler (because he's more recent) it would have been Keon. Can't argue about Kennedy or Bower though.

Keon hopefully is the next set.

1 week, 5 days ago on Sunday Mashup: ‘Legends Row’ a great gesture, ‘Fan Fest’ goes septic

Reply

I agree with everything up top, but the "free" preseason game comment. Who cares if the game was sponsored by Coke, it wasn't like Coca-Cola middlemen suited up to play in the Leafs' place.

As for the Fan Fest, I have to say I'm disappointed as a Leafs' fan the way it was handled. It kind of embarrassing to see and read. Poor little kids and fans. Last thing the Leafs need to do is disenfranchise young fans, it's not like we have championships to keep them interested.

Maple Leafs Sports Entertainment should have looked at another "Sports Entertainment" company for the example on how to run these. WWE does something like this every year (I believe) around Wrestlemania time. They get a big roster of wrestlers to go on the floor for meets and greets and signings and then cycle them out after an hour or two. They've been doing these for years and have worked out the kinks.

Leafs should have used their entire roster over a few days (not just one), so that every one would have had a chance to meet at least 2-3 players. Want to meet Kessel, fine, but you know that it's going to take forever or you could wait in a smaller line for someone like Franson, Frattin and Leivo (no offense guys). It's pretty simple, the example already exists, why they didn't have the foresight to see this happening is beyond me. It's really embarrassing...

@Bon Scott was a Leaf fan Whoa, I listened to this as a kid. Chris has a great voice and it's a fun story. I always thought it pretty wild coming from the guy who sang "Lady in Red". Such a huge difference between the two songs. This a pick from left field if I ever saw it ;)

It always makes me think of the Phantom Train in FF6, you won't get that reference, but some here might.

@king leary Sportsnet (and all) had a clean slate to get it right. Instead they went with the tired, boring (can't stress this word enough) and sad old way which includes Hughson (yaaaaawn). I guess they thought those were the only guys able to to do the job? I'm not saying any old hockey player off the street could do it... wait, Stock, Simpson and Healy... I take that back. Yes any old hockey player off the street could do it.

I would like to see Weekes get a more prominent role, but I'm not holding my breath.

@Mcost61 @DJBrianBurke @Dangle_My_Berries @Luke_R @LN-093 He did say he knew nothing of hockey when he came in. Then the reports about his disagreements with the hockey brass in LA, which I didn't give much thought to as no company need a bunch of "yes men." He got Shanny and that was good enough for me. I with Leiw all the best after June, I hope we can celebrate a Cup win together of course.

I curious as to who will be the new guy coming in. There will be months of speculations for that of course. On here and all the media outlets.

@ingy56 I liked Kabs back in the day. He was a good Leaf. A late pick that worked out well which was very rare at the time for the Leafs (and still is, but hopefully getting better).


Like @Reether, I wish him all the best. Would like to hear his "Oh yeah for sure..." once again in a post game ;)
