Real Reality

from Justin Bourne of Sportsnet,

Yes, the Toronto Maple Leafs are the subject of an upcoming docuseries -- an “All or Nothing” show put together by Amazon, but having seen All or Nothing’s in the past (I watched the one on Man City), it’s safe to say the camera will be aimed away from internal strife. If I had to guess, there’s little chance you'll finish watching that upcoming documentary and feel like there were massive internal failings despite their results. (I’m guessing the team itself was guaranteed final approval before it goes to air.)...

The NHL has a culture that leads to the burying of some of the best internal storylines because it’s a sin to admit you care about your own career, for some reason. I think with enough access, enough interviews, and perhaps that translator, we can get to some great stories.

At the end of the day professional sports are about entertainment -- it’s the world's best form of reality TV -- and embracing another angle of that can only be good for fan engagement, and in turn, the health of the league as a whole.
