On our front page of https://TMLfans.ca, there are three sections:

1.  LATEST NEWS AROUND THE INTERNET

2.  MAPLE LEAFS PODCASTS

3.  LEAFS BLOGS AND PAGES


I really need to update those three catagories.  Can you guys give links suggestions to those 3 areas, or any of those items that are dead and need removing?

Thanks, Rick

The Leafs Geeks Podcasts looks defunct. Ian Tulloch, who ran that, now does the Staff and Graph Podcast. And while he's not exactly my cup of tea all the time The Steve Dangle Podcast could probably be there if you're looking to cover the big Leafs ones.

This is a useful google search for Leafs news
https://www.google.ca/search?q=Leafs+OR+exLeaf+OR+MLSE&hl=en&safe=off&gl=ca&authuser=0&tbs=qdr:d,sbd:1&tbm=nws&source=lnt&sa=X&ei=vUXYTsbgN4rv0gHMn-nRDQ&ved=0CB4QpwUoAQ&biw=1280&bih=899&cad=cbv&sei=10XYTuacMuj30gGyppH1DQ

That's what I used to find a bunch of Leafs news and I still use to catch up.
I'm going to be off the continent a lot during the season so I'm not a good choice for that role.

This one might help

It's crude. I'll fiddle to see if we can do better.


31 Thoughts is now 32 Thoughts (but seems to have been retired this AM ..)

Sometimes (10-20%? of the time) Bob McCown has some decent guests discussing the Leafs

I need to give this more thought and effort. That's a start.

https://twitter.com/search?q=(Leafs%20OR%20Ex-Leaf%20OR%20MLSE)%20(%23Leafs)%20lang%3Aen%20until%3A2022-10-11%20since%3A2022-10-09&src=typed_query

I used the above via advanced search in Twitter.
They key thing are the above bolded dates.
Edit those (& remove the bold), then cut and paste the link

This one also worked ok. It is without the #Leafs
https://twitter.com/search?q=(Leafs%20OR%20Ex-Leaf%20OR%20MLSE)%20lang%3Aen%20until%3A2022-10-11%20since%3A2022-10-09&src=typed_query&f=top

If you could feed today's date and then today's date less two (or whatever) days off the menu, that might be close to what you're looking for from twitter.

Another way (maybe better) of doing this might be to set up a unique TMLfans twitter feed. It would have the collection of sources like TSN, Sportsnet, the Leafs, and the various folks who tweet about the Leafs as folks the TMLfans twitter feed follows. Click a link to that and you would have a bunch of what is going on updated in close to real time.

I'm giving more thought to what we could do re news updates, additional blogs and podcasts.
I have to beat the bushes and think about it. I do not have a quick fix. But I'm confident we'll find a way to improve it.
