Being a Leaf fan requires thick skin by nature of the beast, as its a requirement that comes with the following.
When our Leafs are winning again some day, the commentary will change accordingly as it will no longer be as easy to take shots at the team. Losing breeds contempt and that is only resolved by winning.
As bad as this group is, the Leaf homer broadcast crew Bob Cole etc. takes things to the opposite extreme in support, and that likely turns off national viewers as much. Therefore likely the reason CBC switches up the announcers on occasion to give a broader perspective to all.. IMO
All of Canada bloody hates us, and many American markets too.
And this is through an era where this team has had no relevance.
Who cares if 3 men on a national hockey broadcast really imply hate?
