Absolutely. In Toronto, nothing is ever good enough. You'll always find a vocal minority who'll deem anything adequate as simply not good enough. It's probably a factor in why we can't attract talent unless we overpay. Toronto fans are extremely fickle towards athletes and seem to want to overturn rosters ever 2-3 years. I guess it's difficult to blame them entirely when the city produces one championship caliber team every couple decades.
