Simmons: Isn't even blocked by Ron Wilson and cries out loud that he has been blocked. What a tool.

Burk has done a great job, with only one EXCEPTION

No not Kessel - I'm talking about Ronnie the Ignorant (least favourite coach) Wilson

If it was not for Ronnie a lot of players including Kessel might have never been the players they are today.

Enlighten me with your knowledge.

I am not here to defend Simmons but that my friend is a pretty ridiculous post.

maybe, but I truly believe Kessel would have developed much faster with a better coach.

Agreed, Wilson is a good development coach, white, gunnarsson, kessel, schenn and erhoff( even gave mueller good reviews when he was choosing where to sign) I'm sure there are others as well

Simmons is a parasite, nice to see Burkie remind him of his place.

Kinda funny to see him come in here to defend himself though.

I'm not Simmons bro.

I simply asked why all the hate for him.

A man replied that anyone that works for the Sun is an idiot.

I thought that was offside.

That is all

It's a sensationalist rag written at a third grade reading level and whose modus operandi can best be described as "here's why you should be outraged today!" It preys on and exploits the prejudices of the uneducated, emboldens them into believing that their fears are justified, and is anti-intellectual/anti-evidence in favour of emotional appeals to those fears under the guise of "common sense."

Wilson said so himself, he was on twitter to follow his players to make sure they aren't saying something they shouldn't.

I think it can be that way and there are certain sports columnists like Simmons who fit that mold. On the other hand, Mike Zeisberger as their Leafs beat writer is pretty good and always seems reasonable. I also think Bob Elliott is a pretty good baseball writer.

But my primary reason for disliking Simmons is that he likes to stir the pot and create controversy where none exists. For example, several seasons, Sundin had minor hip surgery during the offseason and Simmons presented it as career-threatening. Similarly, when Sundin put his house in Toronto up for sale (a couple of years before the Muskoka Five stuff), Simmons presented it as firm evidence that Sundin wanted out of Toronto. And so on.

A news media outlet that is sensationalist? A journalist who is controversial and likes to stir the pot? Holy Jeepers Batman...this is ground breaking. This my friends, can only happen in Toronto and only to the Toronto Maple Leafs.


Sidenote: Stephen Brunt is one of my favorite journalists and sports columunists/radio hosts and he is NOT a Leafs fan (or so he claims) but he is very very good at what he does. Is this about not being a fan of the team or is it about shoddy journalism.....honestly?
