Yeah, all the other teams are jealous and wish that they too could have prolonged Cup droughts, criminal ex-owners, and pedophilia scandals in their arenas.

So, it's not jealousy. So what is it? It's *coverage*. For the past 15 years or so, the rest of Canada has been bombarded with Leaf propaganda by the media. Hockey Night in Canada stopped being about Hockey, and became Leaf Night in Hockey. Toronto went from just one of the teams to choose from to a league mandated "This Team Must Play Every Saturday Night". God help us all if we actually saw a Senator game early, followed by a Calgary game late. Oh no, the public broadcaster could never actually allow that to happen.

That's why the rest of Canada Leaf bashes. Don't know about the States.
