I don't know specifically what Moose was banned for, just what I heard through the grapevine. I'd advise you to be careful though, complaining about the mods was one of the last posts I can remember from Moose.

Back on topic, this thread's title was worded poorly perhaps. Should personal endorsments outside of hockey equipment be allowed on MLSE's dime? We could discuss that or we can all just complain about the thread.

My issue is he should be wearing only the Leaf hat while representing the Leafs.....what he wears afterwards is his business.
And who decides what he SHOULD wear during interviews? Clearly you are the only one so far among many Leafs fans here that seems to have problems with it yet you are pretending what you think is the right thing to do.

Do you respect tiger woods as an athlete? Or Sidney Crosby? Both have 2 of the largest endorsement deals with Nike and Reebok.... are they in the wrong? Both are representing their entire sport for ****s sake

Captain or not he has the right to wear what ever hat he so choses. Next you are going to say that Dion Phaneuf must only wear hockey equipment that is no name
Nobody said he isn't entitled to endorsements, the OP is questioning whether or not endorsing something not linked to the sport itself is appropriate in the instance he mentioned. Do players have the right to wear whatever they want while on MLSE property and representing the Leafs? If Dion wore a "Who farted?" t-shirt, would something be said to him from the higher ups?

There's a discussion to be had here if we all try a little harder at it.
