An Open Letter To Leafs Fans

| | Comments (6)

Dear "Most Valuable Losers,"

Yesterday, continuing a long-standing trend, another Toronto reporter took his
shot at Leaf fans. This time it was Howard Berger calling us "losers"
but we've seem the same cookie-cutter article before from virtually
everyone who covers the team.

Quite frankly, we've had enough.

As fans, we believe that those most deserving of our praise and our scorn are directly involved in the game, whether it's on the ice, in the press box or in the executive
corridors. Fans don't pencil in the starting five, make bad trades, or
write the headlines of the day and shouldn't be blamed (or praised) for
the totals in the wins and loss column.

Hockey may be just a game but it's also a passion. If you're looking for passionate
hockey coverage that offers insight and humour and you're sick of being
blamed for supporting a team you're passionate about, you have a better

It's time to leave the media superstars behind. There's compelling, timely, wide-ranging content waiting just for you online in the Barilkosphere.

Many have found this better way of following the Leafs, but not every Leafs fan has
been so lucky. Please send this message to your fellow Leaf fans via
e-mail or postings on message boards and let them know that they do
have a choice.

We hope you'll join us here in the Barilkosphere and become regular
readers and writers.

Berger is garbage. He's lost his way. No point reading something pointless. BLESS YOU BOYZ!

Its TOTALLY the fan's fault. Why support an organisation that mocks you? I don't go to McDonalds for the same reason. Its for losers.

@No Way:

I don't get it: you don't go to McDonalds because they keep missing the NHL playoffs?

I think the only problem with this strategy is that Cox, Berger, Simmons, et al are mostly responsible for the oxygen that provides the fuel for this blog. Avoiding them seems a bit of a tough strategy, at least for Cox Bloc.

How do you guys plan to go forward?
