    And i fully disagree with you. I feel his decision is to stay, but he did not want the championship day to become about him, he is a team guy first.
    I would be very surprised if does not stay

    Seems we are in agreement.
    Fun fact: I work with milk crates, lots of them. When I see some of them arranged black-yellow-black in my stash I can’t think of anything else until I rearrange them. Doesn’t work with the figs since there ain´t no white ones. True story.

    **** the Leafs, I agree. But Toronto's a nice city. Personally, I could never bring myself to hate everything a city has to offer because of a hockey team I don't like. To each their own I guess.

    Lots of Leafs fans couldn't care less about the Raptors, and I couldn't care less about the Leafs. I've been a Habs fan for close of 60 years.

    But at the end of the day, it's just sports and a business. Even most of the players think that. If you didn't get that, there was a strike and several long lockout where players stayed out for the best deal they could get.

    You hate the city more than the Leafs. Raptors winning been beyond trilling for the country. When Jay's won back to back, it was awesome for me

    I was never able to cheer for the Jays because of their vote for both the relocation and contraction of the Expos, plus all the shenanigans that Paul Beeston pulled with that used car salesman scum commissioner at the time, where they did everything to deny all the broadcasting rights the Expos had grandfathered across the ROC. I agree that sports should not determine whether one loves or hates a city. I just never had an affinity for a Toronto sports team.

    The only exception has been the Raptors and I was late to the party. The more I watched the more I understood why they were special. Their coach Nick Nurse exhibited those values that I feel embody Canada. He comes across as humble, respectful and quietly effective. His demeanor during games was telling as was the way he took time to salute all the fans that greeted him upon landing in Toronto.

    All things considered it was pretty good. Shooting was unrelated, only a single cop car and one of the bus stop was trashed due to drink people dancing on it lol. Too bad about the shooting at the parade. Everything was going so well until those clowns did that. Hopefully they rot in jail

    I hate the Leafs as much as any Canadiens fan, but I did enjoy watching the Raptors play and win the championship.
    I also enjoyed the Raptors winning knocked the Leafs down a bit (everyone talking Raptors, no one talking Leafs, etc)

    That dude deserved to get stomped by everyone there.

    I hate the Leafs, hate the Jays, and couldn’t really get on board with the Raptors.

    Funny thing is, I love visiting the city. A long weekend in summer or fall, it’s great. I just don’t want their teams to prosper.

    I do like the point above that the Raptors took the spotlight away from the Leafs, and I guess possibly put more pressure on them.

    The Raptors had several annoying bandwagon fans, but that happens in any city.

    It would't surprise me if there was such clause with all the exceptions regarding the salary cap. Soo many it's confusing lol

    If you look at this thread, 75% of Habs fans were cheering against Toronto in the Bruins/Leafs series.

    Boston or Toronto: Who are you rooting for/against?

    Edwin Encarnación with a homer in his first game with the Yankees. With Judge and Stanton returning soon from long term injury, that kind of power at the plate will be extraordinary.

    It’s just sad that with the excitement of the Jays up-and-comers, they’re met with both potential homegrown NYY legends AND the usual added muscle that the Yankees can add. Same with the Sox. TOR needs to bite the bullet and get moved to the AL central

    I didn't see his name in the lineup for that game and assumed he didn't play.

    I wouldn't be too concerned about the Yankees just yet as their starters aren't tearing it up. I'd be more worried about the Astros and possibly the Twins.
