Stop Being Embarassing

Everytime I got to the main board, there is an uneccesary post started about a random leaf player. It's totally useless guys, makes us all look stupid. Don't ask for people's opinions on players then ***** them out about it. Don't make stupid trade proposals.

Please guys, our team doesn't deserve attention, nor does it need any more negatvie attention. Give it a rest.

Some seem to need validation more than others.

Agreed, pisses me off too.

But I guess that doesn't really matter.

sorry but the only thing that is embarrassing is this leaf team. if anything at least some of the people that are posting trade proposals are trying to see what kind of value we can get for the remainder of players that need to go.

you do not give up just because you are/represent one of worst teams in the league atm, you keep chugging along no matter what.

You do realize we have no say on what actually happens to the team this off-season? At least in terms of trades. It's not you'll be like trade Kaberle for ______ and _______? and Burkie will show up on this board and be like "hey, this is a swell idea, and the ______ fans approved it too, so, all good here"

Just saying.

Makes us look bad? We're just the fans we're not the players. For over forty years I have been rooting for this team and still haven't seen them win the cup-not even close. Maybe embarrassing going to university in TO and hanging out at Leaf gardens every chance I got. I think it was embarrassing that I had a hundred bucks a week on food and TTC and spent 55 of that to get a leaf ticket so I could watch them play. Management should be embarrassed that they have charged us what they have, made them incredibly wealthy and yet all we asked for is a cup team. Management should be embarrassed the fees they charge for food and drinks there, for the amount of money they charge for their jerseys and yet continually put together a bad team. I don't care what the players say, many of them haven't been born to see the frustration from Leaf nation yet we need to coddle them and not voice our displeasure.

Who's makin who look bad? Right now, I would say it's the fans, me, the sucker who would spend a ridiculous amount of money to buy three tickets that look bad.

I don't mean in the grand sense. I just mean in the sense of HFBoards, every little detail about every little Leaf is not needed on the main board.

sorry i still do not agree. this leaf team is the embarrassment atm not being a fan. if you only want to be here for the good times find another city to cheer for because toronto has a long way to go.

the original post and what you are saying is that we should all just be quiet and only show ourselves when we start winning.

sounds pretty pathetic if you ask me. you can be one of the worst teams in the nhl and still have respect.

it's called re-building and i for one am dam happy that we are cutting loose from the old mentality and starting completely from scratch.

Alright I agree with that. I ripped Phaneuf today with a bad thread and it's my fault. I actually like the guy.

Just took a look at the "main board" and all I can see is one Phaneuf thread. Usually these threads are either started by trolls or noobs, I wouldn't worry about it.

I don't think I'm neither but everyone is entitled to their own opinion. After watching and playing hockey for a good chunk of my life I do know a thing or two about it.

It's a message board, plus there are far worse people from other fan bases.

You're entitled to an opinion just as long as it's the same as everyone else....

I agree, I mean, who really cares outside the Leafs that Dion got his first goal as a Maple Leaf,

To be fair, I'd say about 40-50% of the dumb threads about the Leafs on the main boards are either started by a Bruins fan, a Flames fan, or a Canucks fan.
