It's all about guts and determination

In his weekly mailbag today, Damien Cox has the following to say with regards to players like McCabe and Sundin wanting to stay in Toronto.

Moreover, I don’t necessarily believe its always an admirable quality to be always looking to join a team with a chance to win a championship. Sometimes it takes more guts and determination to try to be part of a solution to a problem.

So just so we're clear:
- A player who wants to stick with a team even though they lose all the time: "admirable"
- A fan who wants to stick with a team even though they lose all the time: delusional, dimwitted, "sucker"

Everyone got that?

  3. I think it would be ironic if a large crowd gathered around the fight, cheering enthusiastically as he was pummelled, only to have a semi-conscious Damien swear afterwards that real fans still don't like fighting.

  4. Well, you can book Tanya Harding for events according to a website, but I thought she was on probation or something

  5. Sad thing is, if the Leafs signed her she'd be about the third or fourth toughest player on the team.
