For me it's the fans that make me hate the Leafs. Truthfully, when I was younger (I would say til about 1990), I didn't hate the Leafs at all. I didn't like them, but I didn't hate them. I hated Boston, I hated Quebec, but not Toronto.

Then once Toronto got even a little bit successful (remember the Leafs still haven't made a finals appearance since '67, so you can't say they were hugely successful or anything), alot of bandwagon jumpin habs fans came out of the woodwork in Thunder Bay. L.A. King fans became Leaf fans. Edmonton Oiler fans became Leaf fans, Flyers, Islanders, Penguin fans....all became Leaf fans. And, in Thunder Bay, anyways, they for the most part were the most ignorant, stupid fans in town (with a few expections).

This made me a Leaf hater.
