Thread: those 2 old leafs fans

  1. #1

    those 2 old leafs fans

    Every time I watch the leafs play at home on tv, there's always these two old guys sitting behind the center of the leafs bench. They must be millionaires, becuz they basically have the season ticket for the most expensive seats in the NHL. My question is, who are those lucky old chumps?

    Most of the people in the platinum seats are season ticket holders. Usually members of corporations, so the bodies can change. If you see them all the time, they're probably up there in the company that owns the seats...


    As an aside, the idiots who were sitting behind the Nashville net (1st & 3rd) the other night who kept banging on the glass made watching the broadcast really irritating. You'd think the production people would turn off that mic eventually...

    I hate watching games from certain cities when they have to switch the camera angle because the fans either all stand up to watch the play (Dallas- where there usually is no alternate angle) or insist on walking up the aisles during the gameplay (Detroit). (Those were just two examples off the top of my head, to take nothing away from their good fans- it's just insanely annoying.)

    yes, thats him, and his grumpy looking buddy.

    But its not always those two guys, sometimes its some other rich looking old man. So my guess would be those 2 guys are some filthy rich tycoons in Toronto and those other old chumps are the business partners of theirs who were "treated" to the best seat in the world as some sort of gratitude move by the duo. I wouldn't be surprise if they turn out to be shareholders of MLSE.

    Hmmm, guess we know why TSN pushes the Leafs so much.

    Laughing my ass off?

    That joke was horrid...

    I don't see reason to take exception to him making a joke about the Leafs. However, considering that a joke to "LMAO" about offends me.

    Jerry: … I wanted to talk to you about Dr. Whatley. I have a suspicion that he's converted to Judaism purely for the jokes.
    Father: And this offends you as a Jewish person.
    Jerry: No, it offends me as a comedian.

    I get crap when I make a joke. I get crap when I make a serious post. It's probably just a waste of time for me to say anything on these boards.

    Don't you see what Whatley is after? Total joke immunity. He's already got the two major religions covered. If he ever gets Polish citizenship, there'll be no stopping him.
