Bio not provided
CBC radio in NL did an all week commentary on online bullying and trolling.
I do not think we are fully aware of the damaging psychological effects that our posts, blogs and media reports have on players and their families. Players no matter how they isolate themselves cannot fully escape the negative things written about them. it takes a toll.
we are all quilt as MSM.

@loomx Hope smoke grow up
I can live with keeping the RC. Shanny could have took the easy road and fired everyone. He has got guts. Basically, he told the world it is my way, the leaf way. It is not the fans way, not the agents way, not the media way, and definitely not the players way.
Always felt the majority of the problem was the players. often times they either refused to follow direction or lacked the hockey IQ to do so. RC system is not unique nor complicated.
@loomx couldn't care less about agents. their loyalty is to the player (keeping his value high) and no one else.
@Mcost61 the players
1. No one better to replace randy out there,
2. Still leaves possibility of babs next yr.
3. message to players, we are holding you accountable.
@Hammertownleaffan In 29 other markets that statement goes unnoticed. Here the leaf media are trolls and make controversy every chance it gets.
I want scott stevens as HC. Instant cred. Bring in strong assistant coaches to help. Go off the board
11 months, 2 weeks ago on Five Questions on Barry Trotz
Biggest beefs I have from this yr's team:
1. nonis - hamstringing himself with the cap. A firing offense for some one in the management.
2. RC - not distributing minutes properly and finding a 4th line that could play
3. Players- compete level in the dirty areas ( defence and puck possession means getting dirty and nasty and up close and personal with the other guy)
RC does not have to give a reson for the game 7 meltdown. It should be internal. For the most part RC has handled the media well. It was a minor let up on grads story that would get no play in another 25 or cities. The same with the reimer was ok. We have to remember that the sports media in toronto are trolls that seek, invent, controversy. They need to be amost anti- leaf to prove their creds. Even hear we help feed the media trolls
11 months, 2 weeks ago on Randy Carlyle End of Season Presser
The main reason for this season's epic failure was a lack of urgency ( complacency) to address the defensive problems with this team.This is partially RC fault, but it also Management's fault and the players. The signs were there to be seen, without any advance stats.

Oh, I think he has an answer but doesnt want to say it publicly
11 months, 3 weeks ago on Friday Leaf Links
The impression that I am getting is MSM is painting RC as a sympathetic figure. They are not really going after his head. I wouldn't be surprised if he is back.
should of recalled mclaren. easier to lose

@Pent_House @dontcallmeshirley apparently he was toldwhen lewicki was hired that some one was going to be hired abv him, according to prime time sports
Well, if shanny only brings a culture of player accountability I will be happy
@Cloud09 @dontcallmeshirley Should be a thumbs down icon,lol
@GreekGod @dontcallmeshirley spidey sense is tingling!
Shanny hiring just saved RCs and Nono jobs!! book it
@ShiftyD shut up mirtle, Media troll
@noeK @4evrblue may be back not 100% gone
@Mcost61 @4evrblue dont be surprised to see nonis and RC back
@CanuckUKinToronto @4evrblue if he makes the team relevant he will be a God

11 months, 3 weeks ago on Brendan Shanahan being considered for ‘top hockey ops’ job with Maple Leafs
@KeonsGhost not at 5 million per
@KeonsGhost I want scorched earth from nonis down to the players. Dion cant be captain. either.
@Cameron19 @Pent_House I am sure RC gone but there is plenty of poop to through on the players. The players refused to play any defense. Back pressure was none existent.
I would like the leafs to make a bid for Markov. not sure it would work cap wise

@Cameron19 @MaxwellHowe @Anthony Petrielli No excuse for kessel to do it either.
@MaxwellHowe Kessel and bozak are not young in NHL yrs.
@Zep2 Kadri is 23 his body is what it is.
@Cameron19 @dontcallmeshirley What reason than sherlock
Kadri will be traded book it.
@Alec Brownscombe @wiski And people here want to trade gunner,
@Cameron19 @dontcallmeshirley Lol, what that he is not a true two centre? He is a scoring centre, didn't call him the devil. Holland is a better defensive centre than kadri.
I agree totally about Kuli. He IS the best two forward on this team. currently. Maybe a healthy Bolland it would a toss up. If he goes to FA he will be snapped up. Maybe put on the wing with Ovi or Malkin. Of all our UFA he is the own I think can be signed to a reasonable contract.
WRT the scoring line and 2 defensive line I am also in total agreement. I remember last year when Grabo and Kuli were eating all those hard defensive minutes yet we were bitching that Grabo wasn't scoring enough. He sheltered the Kadri line and bozak line from the big lines. With that being said I am pretty sure that Kadri will never be true two centre; therefore, I think he will be traded.
@CanuckUKinToronto Kadri, Gards, Franson, raymond, maybe dion.
