I'm in the same boat with no LeafsTV... we should make a sign and start an HF viewing area, bring lawn chairs, maybe a radio if there isn't audio. and lot's of coffee when it gets cold.

We should so do that. Make the sign out of white t-shirts (minus the sleeves) that are stitched together using a blue fabric marker. Having it held up with sticks, above the crowd, so it stands out.

It's on a big screen, so I'm 100% positive there will be no audio, it'd be nice though.

We can bring hot chocolate & smores as well!!

if there's more than a handful there, I would bet that some will have portable radios...so I bet you'd hear it if a couple people are using them...

reminds me of the Pens during the playoffs...hopefully MLSE are cool with lawn chairs etc (don't think I have one hmm..)..I highly doubt they are ok with beer...this aint Raleigh sadly!

I don't even get TSN2...that may be an option too...but I work a lot of evenings so, it'll be doable for me some of the time, not all...

but, it's a nice option...glad MLSE is doing it.

someone could just bring a sign that references something from Leaf board, like THERE WILL BE BLOOD, or INGLORIOUS BLUELINERS then we'd notice

Here's footage of all the improvements, including some good views of the screen.

Whats so funny about that. It was a common occurrence before the strike. Once the retooling is done I fully expect to be back.

If it's a playoff game....after no playoffs for soooo long, The city is gonna have to close down streets!
Hell I remember after the crazy Habs game on the last of the year where for that 20 hours or so the Leafs WERE in the play-offs...

We were at Loose Moose and pretty much all of Front St was just packed with people partying it up. It took us over an hour to get from Bay/Front to Bathurst/Front because we had to negotiate all the crazies. Then again we were all sticking our heads out the windows screaming too, so...

I'm so excited about the big screen outside the ACC!! Thank you MLSE, thank you for investing in it!!!!

I can't wait to watch a game there with hundreds of fans. I'm thinking of putting 'LeafsGuru' on my jersey.

Burkie's Dog House now at the ACC

actually, when a photo of the hot dog stand's logo appears, it would make a good avatar..with a caricature of Burke

Great idea!

Except for the fact that this would cost you more per game than getting LeafsTV for the entire year.
