Bing ... note that in paragraph one Mr. Berger refers to Leaf fans and by paragraph two he's switched to Toronto hockey followers ... "pragmatism has dawned on Toronto hockey followers, replacing the unfettered adulation and hero worship that has long bathed the Leafs franchise in complacency" ... there might be something to that. Used to be that they were one and the same ... fans and followers. However, having the snot kicked out of them since '67 reduces fans to followers. Following the Leafs is what you do in TO, doesn't mean you have to be a fan anymore. Sad.
