    Our local broadcasters aren’t unbiased. It’s relatively subtle, but I who really wants to hear their local play by play guy sound stoked when the opposition scores? I sure as hell don’t.:laugh:

    Just to be clear, the current government lost the last election and most of us working folks are embarrassed about the NDP.

    Obviously the ratings dictate a Leafs bias and there's no point in being bitter about it but true fans don't just want to hear about one perspective. Long time Bruin fan but I cheer for good hockey nowadays and like hearing about all the teams. Our sports media in Vancouver is focused solely on local teams. It sucks, unless there's a national sports story we don't here anything about other markets.

    Just to let you know there are no politics in here. Current events references like I poked at are usually fine, but straight up mentioning parties or elections is usually a no no.

    Vancouver is a large city with a pretty focused market. Locally I’m lucky, Calgary has a large population of people from outside of province. Habs, Leafs, and the other original six teams get a lot of local discussion.

    The population of Southern Ontario alone is ~13 million. I've lived there for a few years in the past. They bleed blue once you get outside of the NCR. Stack on to that at least 1/6th of the rest of the population are likely Leafs fans and you basically have 50% of the population are Leafs fans. I'd suggest it's even more than 1/6th of the rest of the country too since half of Calgary and Edmonton are from either Ontario or Newfoundland. Both provinces obviously have large ties back to the Leafs.

    Deal with it Islander, no one cares about BC except BC. The Canucks are nothing more than a regional team like the Sens. They're just lucky they play in a larger center so they won't fold.

    In your own emoji, :yawn:.

    Don't get mad, get glad. At least in 4-5 years your team might be worth talking about again.

    OZ-T can take it, he's a big boy.

    I know it hurt him a bit. I can count the times he's had to throw insults rather than some witty/baited reply. That being said he's a guy that feeds on the frustration he creates. A little of his own will get him motivated in time for playoffs. He'll be fine.

    Like he's said more than once, it's the hockey trash talk thread. Hockey trash talk is what happens here, even though we do have civil discussions on the side.

    Just keep your hands off the nail gun for a couple of days. That’s a terrible way to develop a permanent speech impediment.

    Fuck I remember last year when the Sens went deep in the playoffs they were still talking about the leafs 50% of the time and they were eliminated.

    Can you imagine if the leafs had made it far? I bet you not a single Canadian team would be mentioned

    Ah. Point taken lol. Still, lots of Leaf fans out there and the way the media in Canada is tuned towards them definitely puts a lot of people’s panties in a bunch. ”They hate us because they ain’t us,” definitely applies. The nice thing is that local radio is usually not that way. At least it’s not that way where I live.

    I'm summoning the ghost of Harold Ballard to curse the Leafs. If they meet the Bruins in the 1st round at least we won't have to hear about them long :) .

    I was pretty vocal about the offsides, in the past. I just wanted to say that I am 100% ok with Dallas challenging that goal and it being called CORRECTLY with Geno offsides. I know it is petty but it was the right call. With so many rules with gray area (like goaltender interference), I like that offsides is clear cut. Leave it that way. You are either onsides or you aren't. Whether it's 2ft, 1in or whatever. Sorry, rant over. But people argue that it has no effect on the play. Well that is a judgement call. They more clear-cut the rules are, the better. Geno was off and I think it was ruled correctly.

    Just had to throw that out there, because I didn't want it to seem like I am only ok with it when it favors my team.
