Are the Leafs too pampered?
Wed, November 21, 2007

The entire Leafs team will be in a private box at Texas Stadium to watch the Cowboys and New York Jets play on American Thanksgiving. The Leafs play the Stars on Friday night.

"It's going to be awesome. I'm pumped," Leafs goalie Andrew Raycroft said Wednesday before the team flew to Dallas. "I'm looking forward to getting out there.

Are the Leafs too pampered? Have your say in our forum.

I don't know about "pampered" - but I'd certainly say over-scrutinized. This unrelenting focus on everything Toronto in your "opinion" forum is perhaps one of the things that irritates the hell out of fans in the other 5 Canadian cities in the NHL (as is evidenced by some of the comments in this already too-lengthy thread). I, for one, stop here and will leave this and the other one to the GO LEAFS GO crowd who seem incapable of engaging in a serious discussion about the relative merits and weaknesses of the organization. Good luck.

...and this boneheaded quewstion just proves my point in other forums about how ridiculous the fans and media scrutinize this team. these are pro athletes paid millions of dollars, and what did you expect them to do when they went to Dallas --- stay at the best Western? Please ppl! Are other pro athletes less pampered? I don't hear anyone complain how pampered these guys were when they were winning 5 yers ago

Of course the Leaf players are way too pampered. How else do you explain the obvious disdain for hard work every second game? No accountability.

As for that joker who said Sundin should have retired long ago, his trade value has never been higher given his points per game on an awful team.

And they're dumb to boot. They should at least fake an interest in the Grey Cup knowing they are talking to a national journalist.

I'm no Leafs fan, but I live in Toronto. But if I were a fan of this team, I'd be upset knowing they are heading out to Dallas to watch an NFL game in a luxury suite, and play golf on a luxury course. These guys have are not winners.

Yes they are pampered. They have it to good in Toronto. Time for Maurice to start getting tough on these guys. If they dont want to play his system then bench them for a period. If that doesnt work scratch them for a few games. If that doesnt work see how they like it back in the minors riding the buses for long road trips. Time that the players stopped doing what they want and start playing like the professional that they are suppose to be. These guys make more in a month that the average working person makes in a year.

Well... who cares! They shoot a puck around on some ice and get paid way to much. It's completely silly and insulting to the working poor of Canada; people who make a real and tangible contribution to our society.

Pampered hell yes it's like in the old days with Ballard the seats are sold out and they play when they want to. Management need to kick some butt and demote a few so them until they want to play or just buy a bunch of them out and start young and fresh for next year.

Yea they are pampered don't know why Mcabe a useless D man Sundin should have retired a long time ago.A bunch of losers.
