Default MLSE garbage

Not much purpose here other than me venting...

but HOly shit the teams run by this corporation are useless. It's almost a challenge to come up with which ones are more pathetic.

Leafs? They sucked for ever, but they have some a couple of good young players in Kessel and Phanuef. That's something. Not much given that they have a ton of needs, but it's something.

Raptors: Garbage. complete garbage. Money tied up in three failures (Calderon, Bargnani, Turkoglu). Best player on way out (who isn't even that good to begin with!) They are making me hate basketball... well done Colangelo!

Toronto FC: The other of the two that i follow very closely. and incredibly, they are equally as pathetic as the raptors. Fourth year into a league and they still look like an expansion team. I actually think they are the worst managed and poorest run of the three teams.

Thinking about it, I guess the Maple Leafs really have the most going for them. This would have been laughable if said 2-3 months ago, but it's true and you all know it.

have a nice day.

They are damn good at selling shit though. It's actually quite brilliant. If I was running things I would probably think that winning would be the best and easiest thing to sell. That should be the starting point right? But they start by selling everything else imaginable, and then hold winning out there like a big bonus, and if it doesn't happen - well then you still have your favorite player, or role player, or personality, or guy that might break out next year, or Canadian coach, or whatever. The whole thing is a ten ring circus - and that would seem to have been the plan all along.

And Bosh is good enough to have carried a garbage team pretty far. Don't kid yourself. That's just part of the travesty. He was a marketing tool that they surrounded with other marketing tools instead pieces of an actual team. I always thought Colangelo had a blueprint. How crazy is that?

Haha @ toronto FC. Dwayne Derosario even said he felt like he was playing for an expansion team this year LOL. For a team that just missed the playoffs dude to one falter in New York they are totally shite. The good news is word on the streets is ticket demand is really low. The south end used to be nearly impossible to grab tickets and now they are popping up on Stub Hub.


Toronto sports is pathetic and it is wrong to have one corporation own all teams with the exception off one. Here's hoping the Beest and the Greek Progidy put something together because even with the Yanks and Bosox in your division it seems like the only Toronto hope. That and the Argos and Rock if thats your thing.

I couldn't agree more with that. and it's not like everything about MLSE is bad. the payrolls of the teams are good enough, but God help me it just feels so wrong to have these suits behind everything.

Have you guys so quickly forgotten the new high definition screen and scoreboadr that allows for even more advertising to be seen with less eye strain? And the new grass for the soccer pitch? NEW GRASS! Oh but you need winning, well la-dee-da.

Well I was at the game last night, nice and tight down in row 20.

Here's what I got to see......

1. Biggest game of the year for both teams, on the Bulls side in warm ups, all the rookies and idiots are having a dunk contest (no secret that your suck). However, on the Raptors end, Demar DeRozan and a few Raptors are doing the same thing. (no secret you suck)

** A decent side note to that, Derozan Bricked every fucking shot he took, and got no place even close to the rim for any of those useless sideshow dunks. So needless to say, Sj already FURIOUS!

2. The number of straight up spectators on both teams was absolutely astounding. Bottom feeders bottom feeding. Difference was that Chicago's bottom feeders were actually willing to get to the rim, Toronto's pathetic scrubs lacked that, lacked movement, lacked just about everything.

3. MLSE idiocy. Your team is making a push, the crowd, which rightfully so was sitting on its hands, is coming to life to root the home team on, time out. What do we get, a fucking 2 minute FLOP of a debacle on the big screen of the raptor mascot playing golf with the Bulls mascot at Lionhead. Straight up Ad spot for Kaneff Golf, crowd..........completely deflated, team comes out to silence, goes on a o-forever drought, game over. How fucking poorly run can it get.

I'd love to go one, but why. Honestly, why. I crab about the lack of heart on this team all the time, and the franchise management itself is not far behind. You wonder why I am am scarce around here lately. I wizened up. There is a lot more life out there then wasting my time giving these guys my attention.

Go Raps Go..... right to the fucking Lottery to pick yet another project in the 14 spot.
