The more Bill Watter’s is on Leafs Lunch, the more I am starting to think that it should be called Anti-Leaf Lunch. Kudos to Darren Dregier for trying to bring some balance to the show. Dreiger even said on the air today, “we are starting to sound like a broken record when talking about leaf ownership and management”. Amen brother. MLSE has done dumb, stupid things…but for god’s sake move on!
Bill Watters, the guy who got fired from them just blames them for everything. It was funny to listen to at first, but is it just me or does he sound like a whiney baby?
Today Dreiger asked if it would be hard to get free agens to sign in Toronto? Watters, just can’t help himself, the answer is so predictable. He blames MLSE, for firing JFJ, for bringing in Cliff to clean up JFJ’s mess, for trying to get rid of the Muskoka 5….Yawn…Come out and say it Bill, you hate them because they fired your ass!
A caller asked about the Marlies. Once again, Wilbur attacked MLSE for pulling the team out the east coast. The caller, it should be said is a moron. The one thing the leafs shouldn’t be criticized for is being cheap, as this guy did. He said they won’t spend to win. The problem isn’t that they won’t spend, the problem is they don’t know how to spend properly. The leafs fork out a ton of dough, perhaps just not wisely. Wilbur knows way better then to actually say that having the leafs junior team in toronto is a good thing for the team. I know this is a hot button topic out east, as they lost their team and I respect that. However, the ability to have a player on the ice in literally minutes on a call up is a big plus. The effect on the leafs (or MLSE) because the building isn’t full, or GASP, because they are losing money on them is immaterial. Shouldn’t Wilbur be thrilled that MLSE is losing money???
