Faithful Leafs fans, we know how this story goes every single year… It’s been the same old and tired nightmare since 1967.
Good regular season, Maple Leafs make the playoffs and then then get knocked out early.
I can remember as a kid sneaking the radio under my bed covers and secretly listening to Leafs games well after my parents telling me to go to bed…
I remember going to the pub with friends to cheer on the Leafs and making the long trip back home on the subway in a drunken stupor after they lost.
Just how bad is it?
It’s one of the reasons why I picked the website name Stupid Toronto Sports Fans, we’re all stupid enough to believe things will be different this time…
Leafs Nation rises every year, hopes eternal — yet the narrative hasn’t changed ever since sneaking my portable radio in bed as a child and dreaming of a Stanley Cup.
I’m tired of losing, will anything change this season? Last season was a kick in the balls after leading 3-1 and ultimately bowing out early. It wasn’t supposed to end like this…
Who can forget how John Tavares literally got knocked out, along with the Leafs against Montreal in the first round last year.

Brendan Shanahan and Kyle Dubas said fans needed to patient and trust in the plan, how many years ago were we told to keep the faith while we all waited for something to change?
Not that anyone needs a reminder.. A history of our shameful futility

How can such a storied franchise perform so badly? We’re well beyond blaming it on Harold Ballard after all of these years, the Toronto Maple Leafs are losers..
Zach Hyman is gone, What should we expect from a Jack Campbell and Petr Mrazek combo in keeping the pucks out and help solidify a roster built for the playoffs?
Yet we still believe, ready to be devastated again..
