Leaf fanatics constantly bitch about the likes of Damien Cox and Steve Simmons, only to make them the most widely-read columnists in the city. My FAN-590 colleague, Bob McCown, isn’t the host of the No. 1-ranked sports-radio show in the country because he ignores the Maple Leafs. No person on the air so blatantly reminds listeners how abysmal the hockey club is, or how "stupid" its fans are. You folks hate his guts for bearing the truth, but you can’t get enough of him – he so adroitly pushes your buttons. The same Leaf zealots that call me a rotten bastard in e-mails are the first to wonder where my blog is if I skip a day. So, if it’s true that the consistently lousy performance of the Leafs is partly due to "negative" media coverage, it is that way solely because of the demand for such material. A demand that is insatiable and endless.No way I am leading you to Working Class Howard's blog especially since he's on a SIX WEEK VACATION (coincidentally, so is Damien Cox...hmmm...that seems convenient) so glove tap to DGB for reading his site not one but twice!
