Top Ten Resons Leaf Fans Should Take a Better Look

Here we go the Top Ten reasons why Leaf fans should look at why they like The Leafs.

10 – Thier Name – The Toronto Maple Leafs – The plural of leaf is LEAVES not LEAFS

9 – Toronto It Self – No one outside of southern Onterio has ever said “I WANT to go to Toronto.”

it’s always been “I HAVE to go to Toronto”

8 – John Fergeson Jr. – No one with an ego the size of the city he works in should be in charge of a Hot Dog Cart, Let alone a historic hockey team. Trading draft picks for a 37 year old defenceman, should be automatic grounds for dismisal.

7 – Tucker and Domi – The two biggest winers in the league not to mention cheap shot artists. God save Kovalev. For giving back just desserts. All they need is Sean Avery and they would be the all time most hated line.

6 – Average Age Of Team – Is it a prerequisite to be old enogh to remember the last Stanley Cup Parade in Toronto to be on the team?

5 – Center of the World – Toronto is NOT the center of the world. It is not right when people in Alberta or Nova Scotia are forced to watch Toronto games when other teams are playing at the same time.

4 – Bob and Harry – Two of the most dim witted, bias sport casters in all of sports. I guess they keep them around to help bring down the average age of The Leafs organiation.

3 – The Fans – 30 and 40 year old men and woman with face paint. Painted cars. No class. Criticize any team in the league but thier own. Hippocrates (If T.O. was the 8th seed in the finals we would never here the end of it, but Edmonton? Flukes.)

2 – Air Canada Center – $300 for a bad seat.

1 – History – 1967. Enogh said

    Yea dude this was a pretty lame topic. No offence to HTR but how did this get approved. I’m a die-hard Pens fan who lives in Toronto and I take pride in poking fun at my buddys and my dad who are Leaf fans, but this post was just moronic. Grow up man. Leaf fans take a lot of heat for being “blind followers” but that just means they love their team. Man i watched probably 65 Pens games this year, would have watched the rest if not for work, even though they were in dead last for the better part of the year and I still cheared when they scored and scowled when they got scored on. It’s called having passion for your team. Bad post.

    i guess you havent read anything else i’ve said … my qualifying statements regarding his senility, but also my aesthtical preference for the way he describes the game.

    you sell yourself short when you dont see things through jannetty, i mean, gretzkin – i.e. reading posts fully. if that’s what you do in life, maybe it should be you that jumps off of some sort of overpass. but be sure to avoid making such an even a tragedy – i.e. damaging a vehicle.

    ‘you leaf fans’ = generalization.

    generalization = stupidity

  5. 92-93 says:

    what a surprise.

  6. Aetherial says:

    People really need to give it up over this whole Leaves vs. Leafs stuff.

    First of all, it is a NICKNAME, and as such is not subject to grammatical rules in every day use.

    Second, Leafs was a commonly-used, in fact predominantly used plural for. Go look it up.

    Besides, someone who makes a post with as many spelling mistakes and grammar errors as this one has foresaken their right to criticize the grammar of ANYONE else.

    I assume this article aims to be humorous. However calling people cheap shot artists, dim witted, no class, or hypocrites goes beyond the spirit of good natured ribbing.

    I am unsure why the moderators, who generally try to rid this site of insults, posted it.

  8. my_sphincter says:

    Stupidity = ‘you leaf fans’

    It’s just such a vicious circle!!!


  9. 92-93 says:

    i’ll let your name take care of my response my-sphincter.

    you know my position and you know its a solid one.

  10. 92-93 says:

    its pretty clear that the moderators at HTR have the priorities all wrong:

    1) no political stuff – even if a guy like Mikster posts an article that is saturated with political issues. one time, when i responded to mikster’s political comments, he deleted them because of their political content … pretty good use of administrative authority eh?

    2) racial slurs, ethic insults, sexist remarks, genearlizations, and stereotypes are ok … but swearing is not.

    3) the administrators dont mind posting articles by Leafy (a poor represenative of Leaf fans ‘in general’ despite his good-natured enthusiasm for the Leafs) or articles such as this one. when leaf fans complain that other teams aren’t given the same kind of subjective and crappy treatment, their arguments are reduced to sheer paranoia or ‘typical’ leaf fan irrationality.

    i.e. how dare we suggest that a hab fan like Lint doesn’t sometimes let his biases get in the way in which contents he allows or disallows as an administrator.

    my point is, its ok to talk politics and its ok to have biases as both are inevitable in life … but don’t let it dictate the kinds of administative decisions you make and what kinds of articles get posted. if you are going to be biased or talk politics, dont’ run away from the responses you are going to get.

  11. habsoverserver says:

    Judging from the posts, people who have posted contstructively on this site for many years, are becoming frustrated.

    Many articles are now filled with insults, factual errors and poor grammer. It would be better to limit the site to five topical articles per week as opposed to a plethora of mediocrity.

  12. 92-93 says:

    good idea.

    it would also be a good idea if they updated their ‘rules and regs’ section, made it more prominent on the main page, and specifically address some of the issues that have been going on.

  13. NJLeafsFan says:


    Dude, if you are going to bash the Leafs… least run your text through a spellchecker first. It is impossible for me to be angered by your post, instead I feel much pity for you…..hard to hold back the tears of laughter after reading that mess.

  14. Prynce says:

    even tho the leafs never win, you’re all just jealous and you know it.

    JFJ is a moron, yes, but thats not our fault. I always say that a person from Montreal should not be in charge of the Leafs.

    Tucker’s actually a pretty good offensive players. He’s a 20-30 goal scorer.

    The average age of the Leafs? 28.

    Theyre friggin ancient. Idiot.

  15. LeafsJaysRapsBillsManU says:

    Not to nitpick, but I counted 26 grammatical and/or syntax-related errors in 17 lines of text. If your plan was for anybody to take you seriously (which it couldn’t have been considering the drivel you composed), you might have considered using some kind of coherence in your writing. Somebody should write an article entitled “Top Ten Reasons Why Tuckerbabylala Should Gain Rudimentary English Comprehension Skills”.
