Opinion – Why do we watch?


Toronto fans should understand. Leaf fans that is. The last Stanley Cup to reach our bustling metropolis happened in 1967! That’s too many years for me to add up in my head. But I know it’s a lot. Let’s see… um… 33 ( to 2000) + 22 (to now) = 55 years.

Sometimes I get this sick feeling that the Leaf brass cynically know that Leaf fans are such suckers that they’ll buy tickets and fill the arena even with a losing team. After all, the team is a business venture. Minimum cost, maximum profit?

If the brass shelled out some big bucks for more great players, then we just might win before the invention of hyperwarp drive!

Sick of it. And yes, sucked in every year.
