For me personally, there is little that is more tiring to hear about as a Leaf fan than the subject of “culture change”. That the current MLSE leadership (read Tim Leiweke) have continued this trend of public discussion on the topic is disconcerting but not surprising, I suppose. Promising change is as old as anyone can remember.
My question for you today is straightforward: as a Leaf supporter, is there a requirement to somehow change the culture of the organization (I assume this includes the players most prominently), or are you, like me, fatigued at the thought of hearing that kind of corporate speak?
This is but one of the subjects, by the way, that we touch on during the most recent “Maple Leaf Hangout” show. Our guest on Episode 29 is Sean McIndoe, the creator of the extremely popular “Down Goes Brown” blog site and the top hockey writer for ESPN’s Grantland site. (Check out The Maple Leaf Hot Stove site for an archive of all this season’s episodes.)
Sean is not shy to tackle the issues that he sees confronting the Leaf front office and provides a clear and strongly-worded overview about where he sees things in Leafland these days.
