Video- You Have To Feel For The Toronto Fans

added 10:52am, from Bruce Dowbiggin of the Globe and Mail,

Toronto coach Ron Wilson had one of his exasperations Monday. Asked his thoughts on his Maple Leafs being booed at home, Wilson hissed he was not going to grace the question with a reply and then stomped off. Lip readers could make out Wilson asking a poor PR flack who the offending questioner was. While Wilson’s frustration is understandable, that doesn’t make it acceptable.

An intelligent man, Wilson does not suffer fools gladly. Nor does he suffer clever people. Or the venal, vacuous or vexatious. In fact, Wilson finds it hard to abide just about anyone with a tape recorder or note pad. Of course, his is not a happy lot these days. Odd bits of interesting material make a fine quilt, but they make a horrible hockey team. And Wilson has been saddled by his friend Brian Burke with a rag-bag collection of disparate abilities that shows little sign of succeeding in, say, the next millennium.

Sucks to be a player, too. They seem to be more than a little upset about the waffles.
