Yes, it's only fair that you went over to the Leafs board and welcomed us properly.

While I've read a lot of posts from Toronto fans stating they will stop supporting them should the team trade a significant portion of the future away, for the most part I do not believe that they would make they switch.

This was just something more to have fun with.

However, in all fairness, I should go tell the Leafs board that I welcome them as Senators fans should any of them want to make the switch.

Be back in a jiffy..
You're welcome to become a leafs fan... actually I insist.

Leafs fan ehre and I kind of agree..

The firing of Burke was clearly a move by ownership wanting more control. Burke didn't want to play puppet. I've a leafs fan for all of my youth and now young adulthood.. If the farm is traded to get luongo I'd be pretty upset.

It depends on the pieces that would go the other way but I'll be watching closely.. I already go to enough sens games in a year, and cheer for them as long as their not playing the leafs..

I live in Ottawa so the transition would be easy.

I enjoy hockey... I have no reason to hate a team. I hate some players on teams but why hate an entire team?

So are Winnipeg Jets fans really Jets fans? Guaranteed none of them liked the thrashers when they were in Atlanta.. You support your home town..

Also I'll support any Canadian team. Come the playoffs if its the sens and habs, or canucks playing a series I'll support them and go to games...I certainly haven't been able to support the leafs in the playoffs for quite awhile.

I've actually seen a few Ottawa area Leafers make the switch in the past couple years. That's probably or best chance at turncoats.

Especially the older crowd thats been **** on for 40+ years.

Boy, would that ever go over well if a Leaf fan invited us all to switch over to the dark side.

Is it just me, or is this a pretty dumb thread?

Honestly, most Leafs fans I know, don't even know that much about hockey. They cheer because that's how they grew up.

I have had a few of my friends make the switch over, but they were people who never grew up watching the Leafs or hockey in general. So they don't have the nostalgia and family pressure to cheer for the Leafs.

My husband would never in his life start cheering for a rival team. He has talked about cheering for a different team, but it would likely end up being a team in the West. And he's going to always have a soft spot for the Leafs.

That said, my 5 year old son goes to my husband "Dad, why do you cheer for the Leafs? They don't even win much?". My boys a smart boy! Even picked out his own Sens jersey and wanted Karlsson on the back!
