I use to follow Howard and thought that he had a lot of solid info about the team. But of late it sounds like he is really bitter and maybe not realizing how lucky he is to have his job. He gets to travel, see all the games from the press box and write about the Leafs (dream job). I know that he doesn’t like Ron Wilson and if you ever see any post game interviews you can tell Ron Wilson doesn’t like him at all.
Here is what he posted after the Leaf’s win last night.
Leafs Win — I’m OffBy HOWARD BERGER
(Oct. 27) — This was one of the great calamities in recent TORONTO NHLhistory.Yeah, yeah, I know… I’m don’t usually blog after a Leafs’ win, but I’m so damned pissed off at the way the Blue & White stole two points from the Florida Panthers, who played a classic road game and were easily deserving of a victory at the Air Canada Centre last night.Rumors have Colton Orr attending the ’ mid-afternoon practice today — chiefly to show Jim Barker and his staff the football block he used to obliterate Scott Clemmensen on the winning goal with 8:58 left in regulation. It’ll be amazing if referees Stephen Walkom and Francis Charron can look in the mirror after this grand larceny… one of the most abhorrent, vile, revolting missed calls I can ever remember. ArgosAnd, the fans at the ACC — you sheep; you goats; you clapping seals… instead of booing the officials for such ineptitude, you dance around as if your team deserved the goal and the win. It’s amazing you nitwits can live with yourselves.Anyway, I’m out. This was just awful. Go ahead and gloat until Thursday night, when the Bruins maul Phil Kessel the way they did last season. Then you’ll see a real blog!
He sound’s a lot like what a Florida Panthers Blogger should be writing about, and the complete opposite of a Toronto Maple Leafs blogger.
After this blog was taken down, this was posted from Eklund (who I also think is a bit of a tool)
What do you think of all of this?“P.S. Today I have spoken with Howard Berger. Howard Berger put up a blog this morning that was intended as satirical in connection with his previous two blogs, and it was removed by me because the blog was misconstrued and several people in the comments were out of hand in their responses so I decided it was best to simply blow it up. It became a streetfight between Howard and the Leaf fans and I stepped in to break it up. I appreciate both sides of this argument. Howard has been here since day 1 and while I dont agree with him all the time I do respect him. Leaf fans are among the most passionate and best hockey educated who view the site and I respect their views as well. It was just obvious in this case that neither side could understand the other so I felt before the whole thing got to bloody to end it. I apologize if you were offended by either the blog or the comments. Thanks, ek”
Should the Fan590 fire him for his unprofessioanl comments to the city he is supposed to serve?
