Main Leafs Hockey Talk / Section 313 Row 14X Seats 6-9
« on: July 12, 2017, 09:58:42 PM »
Hi guys,






Perhaps I put it in the wrong section...

I've purchased these tix for the TB game in January.

Is anyone familiar with these seats and the view?

They're described as obstructed but I'm curious to know how bad the obstruction may be.

Cheers...

I know lots of people who write with their right hand but shoot left. I have no idea why. My strong arm is on the bottom of the stick but lots of left shooters prefer their strong arm on the top. I don't really get it.

I'm right-handed and shoot left. Holding the stick the other way feels so totally bizarre to me.

A young lad I coached in cricket a couple of years ago there threw left but bowled (basically pitched to steal the baseball term) right. I've never figured the logic or biomechanics of that out.

I'm left-handed. I bowl left-handed but I can bat both left and right-handed.
My Dad's right-handed and used to bowl right-handed and bat left-handed, though he plays golf right-handed.

Just to not clear things up at all.

Man, Rielly...

His game as it was looking so promising over the last 12 months or so has done nothing but taken a complete 360 under Babcock. I'm hoping it has something to do with his injury. I was all for the rebuild but I think the Leafs could have done something at the deadline to bolster the D without mortgaging much but they did jack sh*t. Which would have alleviated some of Reilly's minutes. 2 acquisitions they made did nothing to help our weaknesses. Anyway goodnight everybody hope there's a comeback in store but I've seen enough of this sh*t.

That'd be a 180...

Aboat the time he stood out in the cold trying to complete his Esso Powerplay stacks!

It seems the Tall-Poppy Syndrome is getting as strong in Canada as it is in Australia...

Main Leafs Hockey Talk / Re: Holland traded to Arizona

Cost of Living easily favors AZ.  I've been to both and liked both but if I was choosing to live in only one it would be AZ.
Hey Nik, I would live in AZ 100 times over Ontarrible any day of the year.  300 days of sunshine, virtually no snow. Worst fear are rattelsnakes and Pool dust.   Shane Doan has been saying it for years. Best place on the planet to live.  Heres to the Holland Marsh in AZ.

Sydney, Australia says hello.

It costs to be the best. I've been through Arizona on a train (for what it's worth) and I know which one I prefer. I may be biased however.

I just sold a 3br townhouse for $1.352m. We bought it 9 years ago for $580k.

My kids won't be able to buy property when they're old enough but hey, swings and roundabouts.

All Sports But Hockey / Toronto Wolfpack
« on: November 22, 2016, 06:37:34 PM »
Toronto Wolfpack have signalled their intention to make their mark on English rugby league with the signing of former New Zealand international Fuifui Moimoi.

The 37-year-old prop spent 11 seasons with the Parramatta Eels in Australia's National Rugby League before moving to England to play for the Leigh Centurions under Paul Rowley, who is now coach of the fledgling Wolfpack.

The Toronto team is set to open play in March in the Kingstone Press 1, the third tier of English rugby league. The goal is to win promotion and ultimately make it to the elite Super League.

As an Aussie Leafs fan who's first sporting love is still rugby league, this is exciting news.

Welcome to the board, Hrundi. The way I remember it from my time in Australia was that AFL clubs(sides? It's been a while) also had fairly prominent ads on their uniforms.

Cheers.

AFL jersey sponsors are smaller than NRL jersey sponsors.

Their sponsorship revenue is typically the same or more, so they negotiated the "sanctity" of the jersey a bit more effectively than the NRL.

For example...



You can see the Hyundai logo on their "breast". The big logo in the center of the "guernsey" is actually the club logo. This is probably the better model for the NHL approach.

We have had jersey sponsors in rugby league in AUS for about 40 years.

We have accepted it as the clubs have needed the income to remain financially viable. This is where we are probably different from the NHL in that sponsor revenue from jerseys would be relatively small compared to all of the other revenue.

Our retail jerseys are the same as the on-field jerseys except for kids jerseys where clubs are sponsored by alcohol or gambling companies.

Most fans are fine with it as long as the sponsor logo/artwork doesn't contrast too greatly with the overall jersey design. We have a chest sponsor, sleeve sponsors, "neck" sponsor and top rear and bottom rear sponsor. We also have 2-3 shorts sponsors and the same sponsors on their training gear etc.

This obviously seems like a lot compared to the current NHL standard of none, but they can be blended in quite well, and as it was fairly gradual it didn't cause too much of a problem for fans.

Some clubs have different sponsors for their home versus their away strips.

My club, the Canberra Raiders, have jerseys as follows:
