Mr. Vertigo, If you follow the path of my responses they are retorts to your previous statements which are untrue and/or insinuate much worst results. For example you said "when was the last time the Leafs made the playoffs?" which implies that it's been a long time since they made the post season. I countered by letting you know that they have made the playoffs in 6 of the last 7 seasons. In fact, they have made it to the 2nd round more than a "couple" times during that run as well. They made the 2nd round in 5 of those 6 playoffs and reached the conference finals twice (that's the one before the Stanley Cup finals). Therefore, by "sucked for a long time" you are saying that being better than half the league over that same time span "sucks". I think they at LEAST deserve an "average" rating if not better. Add up those post season wins and show me how many teams have done better in that same time span. Oh wait, you don't use research...that must interfere with your sheer blind anger writing. My apologizes.BTW Fans of the Leafs indeed celebrate every playoff win and progression each round. Whether they "should" celebrate is up to the individual's excitement and interest. I know...it's so ghey to see your sports team win and be happy. What freaks.
Ok I apologize if I don't thoroughly research a team that hasn't done anything useful for decades and that I truely detest. You can pull out all the stats, that is fine. I wish you wouldn't assume I know nothing about hockey. Maybe you should leave those accusations for Serge. In case you couldn't tell, my original posts were full of SARCASM and generalized. I like to make fun of the Leafs, ok? I know they have made the playoffs. I know they have won a few rounds. But they haven't made it to the finals or won (in a looooooooong time). And when it comes down to it, that is what matters. Other teams with less resources, fan support, etc. have managed to do a lot more than the Leafs have lately. That's all I was trying to get it. You seem to have a personal vendetta with me. I just don't like the Leafs. Big deal, you don't have to try to insult my intelligence by pulling random stats out of your ***. We can just hate the teams we wanna hate and talk hockey, ok? Everyone dumbs down the Wings on here all the time. I know they aren't the powerhouse they once were, but they still pwn the Leafs and are still a longshot contender. And you are right. Every fan has the right to celebrate their team's victories, no matter how insignificant they may be. P.S. It's my apologies
