Howard Berger On NBC


This is awesome. No, really awesome.

““I’m not involved in the change process” Ron Wilson Maple Leafs Head Coach….

Right there, doesn’t that tell you that, well he wouldn’t be the best guy to talk to about current trade talks????

Some disagree, and decide to write a blog post about……nothing

“He’s like any general manager, he’s on the phone every day. It’s just not the Maple Leafs; there are a lot of teams in the same position as us that haven’t made a move. It’s very tight right now; a lot of teams are close to the cap — the ones that you think would want to make a difference in their line-up — and nothing is going to happen for awhile. That’s pretty much the feeling I have.”


Jonas, the bar is set soooooooo low, PLEASE rise above. Tonight in the post game conference, step up, don’t ask the stupid quesiton. Think, use your head, hell ask someone in the pressbox what would be a really good question to ask Ron Wilson.

howie’s NBC post is here

I am not a big fan of Berger but I like him better than you (which apparently isn’t hard)…………at least he isn’t afraid to be critical of the Leafs………….have you ever heard Jonas say anything negative about the Leafs ever?…………..not only is he petrified to say something critical about them but he seems to take any criticism he hears about them personally…………..hopefully as he gets more experience he will become a bit more objective.

isn’t rule #1: when you don’t have anything to say, its better to say nothing? pls send berger the memo!

The only time Jonas is negative about the leafs is when he is on with Wilbur and he bashes ownership. The problem with the kid right now is he has yet to express his own opinions. Everything that comes out of his mouth he has heard from someone else. My problem with Howie is he is a fraud. The guy is a closet leaf fan. Because cause guys like Cox, Simmons et all are negative, he feels that he has to be too.

I have never heard Jonas participate in the bashing of Leafs ownership………… guess would be that Wilbur does the bashing and Jonas goes along with it because he is afraid to disagree with Wilbur……………..I’m not sure I agree with your theory about Berger, but I have a feeling Wilbur agrees with you………….I seem to remember an interview Wilbur did on FAN 590 about 10 years ago when he was working for the Leafs……………he wasn’t happy with something Berger had reported…………….several times during the interview he referred to Berger as “a good little Leafs fan”…………….I have a feeling Berger was not very happy about it.

I guess we have lots to disagree about then. I would bet some $ that Wilbur used to be Berger’s leaf source. Since he left, Berger’s well has run pretty dry. I seem to recall Wilbur going after Berger for playing that dispicable clip of Paul Maurice going to get his kids the minute after being fired despite Maurice asking him not too. Jonas will sometimes throw out the anti MLSE balloon to get Wilbur going.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
