Disclaimer: I actually like Howard Berger.
That said, he's clearly learned an important lesson from guys like Simmons and Cox. Namely, that you can take either side of an issue whenever it's convenient, even if that means flip-flopping like Daniel Alfredsson after the Mark Bell hit. And this is especially true if the issue is the biggest, bestest, funnest of them all: how dumb Leaf fans are.
Hey Howard, how do Leaf fans deal with negative media coverage? Do they like it or not?
Here's Howard today:
So, if it’s true that the consistently lousy performance of the Leafs is partly due to “negative” media coverage, it is that way solely because of the demand for such material. A demand that is insatiable and endless.Here's Howard last week:
Many Leaf supporters were angry at Healy for his strong remarks and that, too, was predictable. Nothing bothers Leaf fans more than a media figure painting an accurate picture of the club.Um...
I mean... how can I put this...
These guys do know that the stuff they write online stays there, right? Like, they understand that it doesn't just get tossed in the trash and forgotten like a newspaper column? That if they say one thing today and then argue the exact opposite a few days later, we can actually go and check that?
Should we tell them?
