I think the rational behind all of the negativity is that while the different suck as badly as they do, what makes matters worse is that there is no light at the end of the tunnel or most of them.
The Leafs, the Jays, Argos: all look like they will continue to suck for a LONG time into the future.
I omit TFC because with real grass coming next year, i believe this will be a big step in improving the quality of play and the desire for players to want to come to Toronto. Given a proper coach this team with the current players should be much much better than they are now.
But yeah - the rest of them... they ain't getting any better for a while! Hence the doom and gloom.
