Maple Leafs ditch salute screw themselves over, Maple Leafs ditch salute screw themselves over
You may have thought that a win would chill out the atmosphere surrounding the Toronto Maple Leafs. Hey, man, you'd say. They won. How bad can things be after a win?
Very! The answer is very bad!
Toronto beat the Lightning 5-2 on Thursday night. It was a welcome change for Quinton Jefferson Jersey a team that, in the span of a week, had gone from "" to " about whether they were attempting to get their coach fired."
Now they've really gone and stepped in though. Ohhhh brother.
Everyday in Tor it's something. Today, outrage because the Leafs ditched the stick salute to the fans. Player decision. Coaches didn't know.

A fair amount of the controversy in Toronto is blamed on the media, and at least some of that blame is deserved; it's a competitive, pa sionate market and the home team, for a Jason Myers Jersey lot of reasons, has been an easy target. That's not a recipe for even-handed coverage.
If you doubt that, track the response to the salute i sue on Friday. Odds are it follows Will Dissly Jersey the obnoxious-funny-sad-funny-obnoxious again model. Five dollars to the first person whose argument unironically involvesthe military.
The thing about this one, though, is that the Leafsearned a share of the criticism. Silly as it may be, the players saluted fans at the ACC Center after every win. Whether there's much of a point to it is irrelevant it was standard practice.
So, they made a conscious choice to nix that on Thursday night maybe because of those jersey-to sers that had Phil Ke sel so annoyed, or the abuse James Reimer's wife took on Twitter and now they're going to pay for it. There is literally no other way this was going to end. "Sadly, now there can be only one outcome," says the documentary narrator as Barkevious Mingo Jersey the gazelle is separated from the pack.
The Leafs, when asked about it on Friday, said they meant no disrespect, and that removing the salute was a permanent thing.
Phaneuf: "This was by no means any attack at our fans...it was more about our team and changing Steve Largent Jersey up or routine."

JVR: "It's not a slight at anyone...I don't really understand why it's being perceived that way."

If that rings hollow, it probably should.
"I was talking to a PR guy from another team (and) he said players told him they were angry at fans andwouldn't do the celebration," Sportsnet's Elliotte Friedman said on the Fan 590 (via ).

So the players don't care or they're mad.That's fine enough,but the carnival music isplaying again, and it'sa little tougher to feel bad for them about it. The reaction may be disproportionate, but it's notwholly undeserved.
Unle s they did it to me s with people in which case, salute.
