Yeah how the he'll did I forget Siegel- my fav leafs related follow on twitter. Offers both good info and insight.

I like Hayes from TSN too. Opinionated but good for entertainment. Mike Ulmer is getting more interactive during games and often has either good discussions or some epic goofy trivia.

I'm upset nobody has mentioned me. I shouldn't have to fish for compliments.

I wonder what bob's success rate on predictions is... Now he's freaking out about 'predicting' a Christmas NBA game as if he always right but I'd guess around 1% success

Bob went on for a week about how he was the first to break the "Payton Manning not playing this season" news pretty much the only thing he really broke first this fall.

In terms of hockey related news, its pretty standard stuff he says a very broad rumor (leafs VERY INTERESTED in staal, ryan and parise) then if the trade goes down in Jan-Feb, which everyone knows is when it will go down, he brings up about how he "broke" the news first months ago.

basically once they finally get a rumor right they post it 100 times so ppl think they actually have some cred

However hockey br3ak gets his information doesnt matter. I follow every possible source on twitter that can break information about the NHL and he over the last year has been by far the most credible and reliable, regardless of getting his info off of the radio or game tele-casts. When he posts something that he gets from another twitter source he quotes them, when its him breaking the info himself he doesnt.

I remember 3 days before sid's return, bob tweeted that he had suffered a setback and was at least 4-6 weeks away. Clearly had no source and was just guessing, and then when he was wrong he just never brought it up

Siegel I like but he does seem to only post positive news about the Leafs. We had just lost 4 of the last 6 games when an upbeat positive article went up about us doing good. It is better than all the trash Simmons spews out, but it is something I noticed with him.
