I have a friend like that - he doesn't cheer for any particular team, he just cheers for whoever the leafs are playing against.

His office right now has bruins stuff all over it. I bet he couldn't name 5 players on their roster.

I just don't get that mentality at all, seems like such a waste of energy.

if it really is all about the leafs ..then ultimately ...he is a leafs fan ....he's equally obsessed...just with hatred instead of love

Sometimes it's hard to believe that people like this walk amongst us. We have no idea what makes some people tick.... ???

I think you are right.  This guy needs clinical help.

Isn't the whole idea of supporting a professional sports team to the extent that we do kind of crazy to begin with?

There's lots of people who take joy in seeing another team lose, in this case Leafs haters love seeing the Leafs fail.  I could look down on those people, but then I love seeing the Habs fail so....shame on me.

I think those who hate the Leafs hate the fact that their team could win 10 Stanley Cups, and the Leafs would still be more relevant.

Win or lose, good or bad, EVERYONE cares about the Leafs.

When I encounter a Leaf hater, I find out what team the idiot cheers for, then tells that person I really don't care about that team or any other team, because as a Leaf fan, the only team I am concerned about is the Leafs.

Better develop a thick skin.

A pessimistic prediction could be that the Leafs are swept here and don't make the playoffs again for a while.  In that case the mocking will only get worse especially from Bruins fans.

I'd love for the Leafs to have some success, but if you're counting on the Leafs performance to quiet the haters you could be in for a real bad time.

I just remind them, at one time their team sucked the big one too.
