Well...the team IS terrible. It's in no better position now to win than it was 3 1/2 years ago. In fact one could argue that it's worse off going forward.

Next year doesn't look like something to look ahead to with any degree of anticipation. We'll see what happens in the off season. [which may well be significantly longer than usual.]

All of this needed to be accomplished one step at a time granted. There is NO overnight fix for Leaf land. But it has to be tinkered with on an ongoing basis and Burke, while making some decent trades and moves, has not been successful in the methodical manner required.

That he over-rated his work and his hockey smarts seems evident. Now he has a coach who requires different parts to make his hockey 'machine' viable. So it's back to the drawing board. I expect that we'll see at least 10 new Leafs next year....maybe more. THAT'S a major overhaul which suggests failure. But if he does it...it becomes his way to succeed. Otherwise it'll be a unanimous "off with his head".

We Leaf fans may support the Maple Leaf idea...but I'd venture to say that not one of us is happy with what we currently have in place. It wasn't good enough on opening day...and little 'work' was done over these past 6 months. It certainly isn't anywhere in the vicinity of good enough as we approach the final day of this campaign. All we have left now is to hope the Habs finish 14th with a win over Toronto on April 7th.

That's just not enough to satiate the Blue and White 'nation'...now is it? Yet we continue to cheer for our team in spite of it all. [and fill the building to boot]

Who the cap fits...Let them wear it.

Guys, as always thanks for the great contribution, but the topic is "why do we continue to support our Leafs" not let's talk about all the problems they have. Let's keep it on topic. Feel free to start a new topic or post these thoughts in the existing ones as applicable. Thanks!



Is it really that important to stay in topic, are we only aloud to discuss the topic as it was first stated? Let the topic take on a life of it's own please



Hello Clatts, thanks for your feedback. Yes, it is important to stay on topic. Slight, but relevant, deviation is fine but the topic keeps us reasonably organized and is the guiding light for the discussion at hand. Going off topic is like walking into a conversation with people and changing the subject on them. Of course anyone is entitled to start a new conversation and we encourage you to do so.

Over a decade we have amassed thousands of topics in our archives so this is critical and I thank you for soing so. If you would like to discuss this further you can email support (please don't do it here)

good point guest, support for the local team, or if not local, support it because someone else you know helped influence you

for me, its the oilers, and will be for a while, just because I was raised in "oil country"
