Before the season started (in October) we had
1) Kadri (our top forward prospect) is fat and a bust
Now I don't think
fans are the worst, but we easily have the lowest of the low. Don't believe me? Look around at any other teams forums. You'll be lucky to get a hit on half of these threads per team forum. Nowhere else in the NHL do fans consistently pit their players against hypothetical scenarios. There's absolutely no way to say who the Leafs would have drafted with the Kessel picks, yet it's debated as a certainty, as if it was a straight trade for Seguin/Hamilton/Knight.
Alot of people aren't involved in the starting of such mass hysteria but join in the threads because they're already made and a hot topic. To those I say, please step back off the ledge. But for those insisting on bringing people up there with them, just jump already. You're not going to change anything, and only succeeding in making people along for the ride miserable.
Time to aim the hyper-analysis at the fanbase.
Simple answer: No.
They're simply passionate.
And passion sometimes overcomes your common sense.
So yes, there are a number of not-so-great posts, and that from both sides of the Great Divide.
And this comes from someone who's not a Leafs fan but find their Board very interesting.
Some malicious souls will say it's because it often gives me an opportunity to display my wit and intelligence.
But rest assured, I'm way too modest for that, and modesty is my best quality...
PS: Just saw that RememberTwice expressed the same opinion.
