from Michael Grange of Sportsnet,
What to do when you’re favourite team is the potential object of a raid by US-based corporate pirates?
Back at Occupy Toronto Decoste mulled over the possibility of leading a small band of disaffected hockey fans to protest corporate greed as it relates to the Leafs - or at least American-based corporate greed.
If his team is going to be owned by faceless, bottom-line focused capitalists, they should at least be from Toronto. It only seems fair.
“Canadian teams should stay in Canadian hands,” Decoste said. “When you make sports second and business first it’s to the game’s detriment. If you’re a sports fan and not necessarily a fan of Wall Street, that’s not going to work for you.”
So ‘Occupy ACC’—this could work?
