Biggs has to be held back by 2 sens
6 days, 10 hours ago on Rookie Tournament Game #2 – Maple Leafs vs. Senators
@Doorman @Reether @Loric76 Am I looking at the wrong page? Is it because I drafted those guys the year before?
6 days, 12 hours ago on Rookie Tournament Game #2 – Maple Leafs vs. Senators
@Doorman @Loric76 Hey Doorman, how does the picks we lose work for the Keeper league.
I'm looking at this page. http://hockey.fantasysports.yahoo.com/hockey/1468/lastseason
If I keep Crosby, Hall, Keith, Backstrom and Bishop do I lose my 1st, 2nd, 4th, 5th, 10th?
Just got in, hope I didn't miss much!
@DeclanK @Reether @T K O ya Jmessih guessed that down below as well. That would explain the strong wording he uses towards someone in his own organization. It does seem like strange timing to be a Leaf related comment. It does seem like Defoe fucked them over after all the marketing and money they spent on his acquisition.
1 week, 1 day ago on Maple Leafs invite Henrik Tallinder and Brendan Mikkelson to training camp
@Jmessih @Reether @mr_hanie @Luke_R It could be he is pissed about how that situation has blown up in his face. Maybe it is a jab at him. I wouldn't know.
/edit It does seem pretty BS that Defoe is trying to leave this early after all the fanfare with his arrival.
@T K O Ya, IF he was talking about the Leafs and not TFC. Then we did not get rid of any high caliber players (this off-season) which he would be alluding to in that statement. Which means we have held on to players of "terrible character" after what was another "collapse". Strange to say the least.
@mr_hanie @Luke_R I have no knowledge of Toronto FC, and I'm assuming he isn't talking about the Raptors cause they usually say nothing but great things about the stars of that young team.
Is there anyone on TFC who are "players we have in our organization today whose numbers are off-the-chart good"? I honestly don't know so I'm asking.
@Luke_R @Reether This is something he should have said after the season was over and not right before training camp.
@Luke_R Sounds like he is covering his tracks now. Too late .. you said it
For anyone that uses hockeystreams or needs an online source for their hockey this year, hockeystreams has an early bird price of 100 for 1 year. I just jumped on it myself, luckily noticed it today because the promo ends tomorrow.
@wendelsway1 I agree, I think we will do better than people predict.
1 week, 6 days ago on Sunday Mashup: ‘Legends Row’ a great gesture, ‘Fan Fest’ goes septic
@peterbleafs @Anthony Petrielli @Cameron19 In all fairness without those posts, I doubt there would have been any other than an endless pile of Fenton/Cameron arguments.
@Anthony Petrielli @Reether @Cameron19 Ya an idea like that could work.
And as to the second part, I really can't understand what would be so bad in the comment sections that would make someone say they would never check it again, but hey some people! what you gonna do
@JMAC17 @Reether @Anthony Petrielli @Cameron19 Some threads are not labelled as mashup but are also not opinion articles so they are fair game to talk on. Sometimes the last mashup thread is more than a few days old and is buried in the back somewhere. On mobile it is sometimes hard to find a mashup thread.
These are all things that can be improved on over time. I just think before going all out trying to implement these policies maybe making it a bit more clear and effective would be a good idea.
@Anthony Petrielli @Cameron19 I am ok with wanting to clean up the comments section, but it has often been confusing how this worked. For someone on a mobile viewing the website, having to scroll through 3 pages to find the last mash up can be annoying. Sometimes an article isn't listen as a mash up but is free to talk on. A little more clarification goes a long way. (Latest Mashup post on the front page somewhere, rules etc.)
Also I believe a lot of those "new people" who get intimidated by the large amount of posts wouldn't have become regulars any way. I honestly believe that that is an excuse in some ways with the thought that it would generate a lot more feedback. A lot of people lurk because they can not be bothered to comment or don't have the time.
This isn't too say I don't agree with giving the articles that you guys put a lot of work into their own comment sections. I just believe there has to be a better way of "herding" us lol
@wiski @Alec Brownscombe @Marlies Man This happens with things that get popular quickly, especially forums. It is a lot to handle for those running the site and they get edgy. People get frustrated at changes brought around and miscommunication leads to mistakes occurring on both sides.
@Alec Brownscombe @Bobsyouruncle @Bon Scott was a Leaf fan I disagree but I can say the new posting policies have frustrated a number of people. Poking fun at them isn't that big of a deal, as I've raised my concerns about them before too. I'm not sure what else was said but that is my opinion on that matter.
@Gilbey39 welcome back, and shes a nice one
@wiski Ouch that one hurt
@Cameron19 @Reether @TheGhostofPhook Ya Devane is 2 years older though so maybe they would want to let Broll develop a bit more and toss Devane to the wolves first.
1 week, 6 days ago on Thursday Mashup: Getting closer
@TheGhostofPhook @Reether I wonder which one of Broll/Devane is higher on the depth chart
@TheGhostofPhook You still thinking the Brolldozer makes the team?
Not to beat a dead horse but I thought it was a bug yesterday seeing all the Grinch likes on comments. The regulars are what makes this site the best, even more so than the amazing articles. I don't know all the information but I hope regulars are given more leeway and understanding in decisions regarding moderation given their track record here. Also they deserve an explanation of what they may have done wrong (I think all the community does). I'm a full time lurker, part time poster but I see the value they bring here.
I hope the Gilbey and Phook situations get resolved quickly because they make this site a better place to be
... Even if Phook does have a creepy manboy crush on Ritchie
@ingy56 I didn't even know he was still a FA
2 weeks, 2 days ago on Tuesday Mashup: September!
Great article! I think we will make the playoffs this season. With the depth added we should be able to avoid the long slumps we were prone too. I hope Robidas is healthy because he could make a big difference.
Also I am optimistic about the new style coaching staff.
2 weeks, 3 days ago on Breaking Down the Maple Leafs ‘Moneypuck’ Additions
@Bon Scott was a Leaf fan Haha Time to Vape!
2 weeks, 6 days ago on Thursday Mashup: Expansion Talk
@Greg Fenton I'm excited to watch him play at the Rookie Tournament. There's been a lot of talk about how dynamic his offensive game is.
@mike_84 I think if Bodie shows up like he did last year, he will stick with the big club. He was one of the only bottom 6 last year that showed up ever night.
/edit I have no idea how far Devane is, just thinking Bodie has the inside shot to make the big club
3 weeks, 3 days ago on Tuesday Mashup: Leafs Links
@ingy56 He drove me nuts the last couple years here but I wish him only the best, I hope he can make a comeback.
@Pent_House @Mcost61 AGH I wanna play
3 weeks, 4 days ago on Tuesday Mashup: Leafs Links
@loomx Good job bud! Liking the jersey as well and the subtle message at the end haha
@vinoa @maximus_asinus In all fairness that console generation (Ps3/Xbox360/wii) lasted a long time in comparison to some of the other gens in the past. It was time for a new generation of consoles, I'm just worried that they didn't make the consoles powerful enough to keep up with PC gaming for the next decade.
@ingy56 Haha love the intro! Good job Ingy!
@Dangle_My_Berries Still waiting for it to hit the PSN Store. Hopefully I have time to play when that happens.
@Murph2417 @vinoa @Greg Fenton Don't hate, I got a wii U, mario kart is where it is at haha
Since there is a PS4 vs Xbox One argument going down there, I'll post my PSN if anyone is getting NHL 15 for PS4
@MaxwellHowe @Reether Haha like a darker Colton Orr? I'll take it
3 weeks, 5 days ago on Monday Mashup: 28 Days to Preseason
@Bon Scott was a Leaf fan @Reether Ya it is great seeing some of the faces behind the names I've been seeing for years.
Did the ALS Ice bucket challenge last week
@-Keon Love it, I did mine a few days ago, I'll see if I can link it up
Also donated cause that is the most important part after all ;)
3 weeks, 6 days ago on Friday Mashup: Leiweke not long for Toronto
@ingy56 @Reether @LN-093 @mikeyboy Ya I don't think it will happen but that would be bad if whoever comes in ends up dumping Shanny and the new gang. It would be resetting all over again.
1 month ago on Thursday Mashup: Analytics, Analytics… Nothing but Analytics
@ingy56 @LN-093 @mikeyboy Ya I could see it being a situation where they said, listen if you aren't going to be here long term we don't want you here. Hopefully that is the case and it's not a case of them pushing him out. As much as he pushed false promises, he was doing good things here.
@Xxxxxnew I think it should be even for every team that misses the playoffs. That way everyone at least tries to get better every year, knowing that losing will not likely reward them with much.
1 month ago on Maple Leafs sign William Nylander to three-year entry level contract
@ingy56 This is the same guy that said on TSN that the Leafs have no Legends in their history. Why does he work in this market again? Correction, why does he have a job?
1 month ago on Maple Leafs hire Brandon Pridham as new assistant GM
@ingy56 No, I'm not ready to give up on Biggs
1 month, 1 week ago on Wednesday Mashup: Wake me up when it’s hockey season
@Burtonboy Brutal :(
1 month, 1 week ago on Friday Mashup: The Swarm & Coaching Duties
I didn't see the whole game, but that was an ugly end for sure
What happened to Fabbri? They keep talking about him getting hit.
