Your opinion of these two Tweets from Steve Simmons
 
Looking at Steve Simmons Twitter page I saw these two Tweets from him and wonder what you think of them?

How many times did Mr. Burke insist: We're not trading Luke Schenn. I think I've lost count. But then, what was he supposed to say?

First reason to worry about Leaf draft pick Matt Finn: His favourite player growing up was Bryan McCabe.

Bryan Mccabe was very good for the Leafs. It was the idiotic media like Simmons that sunk his value.

Hanta Yo 06-24-2012 03:36 PM

Simmons speaking like an idiot, aka nothing new.

I need confirmation that is Steve Simmons twitter acct. Just kidding.

Vexxed14 06-24-2012 03:37 PM

Bryan McCabe made Team Canada playing with us. Its not like he was terrible. He just fell off as he got older

God this guy is such a ****ing idiot. What a loser.

simmons is trying to run burke out of town like he did jfj

i think he's wrong about burke and these tweets show he is losing his objectivity

IWD 06-24-2012 03:38 PM

If Finn turns out to be as good as McCabe, it will be one of the steals of the draft.

JVR or Bust 06-24-2012 03:39 PM

My thoughts are that I don't care what Mr. Simmons has to say about anything.

Drew311 06-24-2012 03:39 PM

This is part of the reason why players don't like playing in Toronto.

Paris in Flames 06-24-2012 03:40 PM

Wasn't it "we're not SHOPPING Luke Schenn" which is completely different. In fact, I'm sure Burke said on several occasions that he can assure Luke that he wouldn't be traded but that he wasn't trying to.

Seems like Simmons being Simmons.

Moley moley moley

What an idiot. Matt Finn would be lucky to ever have a career McCabe did which is a pretty good career.

Grant 06-24-2012 03:41 PM

Why does anyone employ Simmons? He is a complete ass. He is the worst leaf 'fan' in the world, and there are plenty of bad ones on HF so that is saying something.

Pyromaniac3 06-24-2012 03:42 PM

Burke said he never offered Schenn at the deadline. Doesn't mean it wasn't discussed.

In 2004, Mccabe got over 50 points, and +23 and was 4th in Norris voting. What a ridiculous tweet by Simmons.

Mccabe was criminally underrated in Toronto.

Grant 06-24-2012 03:43 PM

I feel that I should mention as well that McCabe was the big prospect that was used to get both Sedins at the draft. He had a lot of promise early on in his career and did pretty well too. Just, as someone said, started to fall off.

stakesishigh 06-24-2012 03:43 PM

Garbage.

Hyperglide 06-24-2012 03:44 PM

How does this bum still have a job? He's one of the main reasons the Toronto Media is 'too hard on the players and management'

What a hack.

Chareth Cutestory 06-24-2012 03:45 PM

There's a reason he writes for The Sun.

And why he is employed by TSN is beyond me. My blood boils at the sound of his voice.

Which is something he's probably going for at this point. Embrace the hate, etc.

Vexxed14 06-24-2012 03:45 PM

McCabe lived then died with the "can opener"

“All warfare is based on deception. Hence, when able to attack, we must seem unable; when using our forces, we must seem inactive; when we are near, we must make the enemy believe we are far away; when far away, we must make him believe we are near.”

If I were Finn I would tweet him back saying **** off who the **** are you. Why pick on a kid? asswhipe.

LeafOfBread 06-24-2012 03:51 PM

My opinion:

Simmons is a nerd with nothing better to do

Did the can opener help him get 68 points in 05-06'?
