It's kind of a shame really, not that he got let go, but that he took what seemed to be a real talent for reporting on both print and radio and squandered it by taking pot-shots at Leafs fans, seemingly just to get more attention.
With his history of covering this team for all those years and the hockey knowledge that came along with it, you'd think he could just report on the team without all the running commentary about the sad state of the city, its unsuccessful sports franchises, and its idiotic fans that support those teams. I actually really enjoyed reading his work when he wasn't on a cynical rant.
At the end of the day, he didn't get fired because he pissed off Leaf fans, he just became expendable with some of the younger, cheaper talent available to cover the team. In fact, it was probably his anti-Leaf fan blogs that saved his job for a few extra months. Hits = ad revenue, which is the bottom line.
