In all honesty, I cannot stand the Toronto media coverage on the Leafs.
There are two people whose coverage of the Leafs I find is objective and logical: James Mirtle of The Globe and Mail and Steve Dangle (check him out here: stevedangle).
The media is too consumed over this team and if everyone could take a step back and allow the players to breathe, we could potentially help in decreasing the disgusting pressure the media applies on this already failing team.
I absolutely despise some of the questions reporters ask the players, I mean how much decency can a person lack to as a player something along the lines of “are you aware the fans want you to tank for a nice draft pick” or suggesting a player if he finds himself to be uncoachable “It’s been suggested to that you’re a difficult guy to coach is there any truth to that?”.
Have the decency to ask questions that can generate actual answers rather than provoking some news-worthy, nasty reaction.
I believe that this city’s media deters players from wanting to play here.
Just my two-cents on this pitiful situation between the team and media coverage.
What are your thoughts?
