No bagel, no bagel, no bagel. Festivus Time...

Before I wrestle and pin PPP to the ground as part of the feats of strength, thus ending this year’s festivus, there will be the airing of the grievances.

Brian Burke: Candor does not equal clarity. And either lose the tie or do it up properly. Half-assed works about as well with neck ties as it does with "accelerated rebuilds."

Ron Wilson: If someone offers you a job in a major media market where you have to spend part of each day talking to the media do yourself, your health and everyone else a gigantic favour - just say ‘no.’

Dave Poulin: Your next player personnel recommendation is going to have to be out-of-this-world if you're ever going to get the stink of Lebda off you and your CV.

HNIC/TSN/Sportsnet: For the love of all that’s hockey, tone down the PbP and sports panel jackassery. If I wanted badly formed thoughts, minor theatrics and yelling I’d spend more time in the suburbs with my in-laws. First channel that offers me a game sounds only channel has my undying support. Someone make this happen.

MSM: Next one that asks a GM a "Would you do it again?" question gets bounced from the sports beat over to the Lifestyle - pets section. If you're lucky and hardworking, the closest you'll get to covering sports is filing a story on a squirrel that water skis.

MLSE: You make it so hard to be a Leaf fan. Next time a Leaf gets a hat trick and the rink is littered with hats, I want to hear Tom Anselmi speak out against it. I want pull quotes with dire warnings. If a waffle can hurt an ACC patron, a pink, glittery, MLSE endorsed TML hat tossed from the purples is murder waiting to happen.

NHL: Take a page from the NFL and make the refs publicly accessible and publicly accountable. No reason they can't step up to the mic to explain why goals are called back or others stand.

Those who post trade rumours: Just stop it. Seriously. You’ve missed every trade Burke has made since becoming GM. You couldn't smooth a silk sheet if you had a hot date with a babe...I lost my train of thought...
