In essence,Leaf fans pay for other teams players.

Other teams get the high picks and the playoffs.We get $400 tickets,a crappy team,no elite picks and no playoffs along with biased reffing which we have all witnessed over the years.The model of the NHL can't work if Toronto wins the cup,gets the first overall or if the fans stop going,the game ends entirely.We don't need a fan union for the NHL,just a fan union for the Leafs would bring the league to its knees.

They mock us as a joke but the day Leaf fans pack it in the entire NHL can kiss their salaries goodbye.

wow.
shame the board of governors voting process doesn't go by team importance, we'd never have lockouts

The leafs don"t own a practice faculty the MasterCard center was built and owned by the city of Toronto.
And to be fair, is bleeding money.
Leafs tv is a small thing too, leafs have value from there local TV contract and how much tickets/corps pay to be there.

The headline is a bit misleading. The Leafs franchise alone isnt worth a billion, but MLSE is. That is an empire that includes the Leafs, Leafs TV, the arena, the Raptors, and a number of other entities. The Leafs are the main crux that drives that group but they are not worth over a billion.

Bell and Rogers just bought majority ownership of MLSE for $2B.

Mecca for Hockey

It is the fans that made this happen ultimately. Centre of the hockey universe as they say.

MLSE is worth a lot more than a billion. Weren't they worth over a billion like 5 years ago? The title wasn't misleading.

Bell and Rogers bought 75% of MLSE for 1.32B so..that makes MLSE's total worth to be about 1.76B.

Don't know how they got 1B from it unless the ACC, the Raptors, TFC and the Marlies are only worth ~760M.

I think they fact that 75% MLSE went for 1.32B makes the Leafs worth a billion because you sure as hell can bet that Bell and Rogers didn't really care about owning the Raptors and TFC as much as they wanted the Leafs.
