Pierre McGuire is out to Lunch

A good [email protected]#@!#@#[email protected]#! freezing morning to all of you in Toronto. WOW it is cold out there today. Just heard Rick Ralph’s update and he had a clip of TSN insider Pierre McGuire telling leaf fans to not freak out about losing and that although we have never been through this before and it doesn’t feel like it now, it’s all for the better.

What the [email protected]#@!#[email protected]#! is he smoking. We have been through it before. OK- so it,losing has never been “plan”, but we have lost way worse then this in the past! This is WAY easier to stomach. This year we are losing when we were told we would. It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to figure out what this season was going to be like. The difference between this year and last year is that in years past we had overpaid veterans who realized worse results then the current guys. The only time anyone with a brain gets mad this year is when they lose with no effort.

I think it’s important to separate the casual Leaf fan with the Hardcore fan. McGuire was speaking to the former.

There are so many Leafs fans, that there are probably going to be a lot of opinions on the team. Some people think we can just trade Antripov for Thornton. Note the Bitter Leaf fan entry about listening to Leaf talk after the Predators game. Although, there are also some intelligent callers to that show too.

I’m really happy that most of the MSM seem to have bought in to the rebuild, otherwise it might be hard to do. And if that is the case I don’t care how they try and sell it to the casual fan.

I didn’t hear the comment so I’m not sure if I can be really right here.

For the record I like Pierre Mcguire. He doesn’t take cheap shots at Toronto Fans and he is not boring as some talking heads that cover the game.

He is annoying as all hell. Having said that he knows his stuff. I just wish he had a little more Gord Stellick in him is all. Dial it down a few notches…

Hey Todd:

I don’t think the casual Leaf fan is listening to the fan in the am. Just my opinion. I think he took a drink from the wrong tap this morning 🙂

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
