    Only took 14 pages for this trail to derail. *sigh*

    Let's just focus on the incredible work being done by Belfast and others!

    With a season that started with promise and a sold out Rogers Centre Champions League match, I have fallen to a level where a free, ill-fitting touque will make my Saturday.

    This will hopefully give the casual fan another reason to show up at Gate 4.

    Please help spread the word.

    Do it. I think that is a great message. People can write whatever they want on this banner. I am only going to ask that they limit their space usage to leave room for other people. And that they avoid drawing anything obscene.

    This banner is a message board straight from the fans to the FO.

    who cares if there will be eye holes in front and back ... it will make it easy for everyone to just put them on, nobody has to borrow TFC CityBoy's car keys anymore to rip out eye holes, lol.

    Alonso, any chance you have a tool for this job? or maybe someone who has the tool can bring to joe's.

    Haha yeah seriously! Sorry, I jumped in the thread late. Great idea!

    It's even more vital that we send a message this week-end with Tom dropping prices to year 1 levels.

    It's not enough to restore this club, we need credible leadership and a plan.

    you're a step ahead of me today bro. was just coming to say this.
    this is about football, not about the price of tickets.

    Agreed. Ticket prices were an issue, but for those of us who come because we love the game, the dire state of the football is the big issue. I'm glad you will be meeting with Tom, and I'll be wearing my paper bag come Saturday!

    Anselmi admitted that even at year 1 prices they are still at or near the top of the league. So 'reasonable', not so much...

    lets hope this story has some legs. but unless he'll hire a proven director or a proven manager i'd prefer to keep Mariner for now.... shit I can't beleive I just said that.

    To me the protest is more important than ever. They can't think simply dropping prices is enough. It's a great first step, but it's a first step in a LOOOONG process of rebuilding trust and building a legitimate club

    Honest question: How tough is it to be Canadian today after that result in Honduras?

    Jimmy Conrad @JimmyConrad_com

    @rachelbonnetta Honest answer to my own honest question: I think I would walk around with a bag over my head. Maybe that's just me.

    Michael Przybylowski @prizby @JimmyConrad_com the bag over the head happened at the last TFC game and will happen again on Saturday @rachelbonnetta

    So you think this was the result of the past few weeks of heat on them? Even though they've been working on ticket pricing packages for months?

    it was a joke. from the beginning everyone involved in this movement said it had nothing to do with money.

    I agree it's not about money. You need to put the sarcastic smiley in there for those of us who read in a serious voice on the internet

    Who are you calling Whores??? I think people are just happy to see something positive come from this club. Is the reduction going to fix everything? NO.

    Get off your high horse.

    glad to have you aboard. (since I painted that ship on my banner I've noticed that I'm using a bunch of boat terms)... anyway...

    I have to be honest bro, i'm one of the biggest whores. i was renewing before the reduction.

    This makes no sense. Yes, some of us are happy with the price reduction. But that doesn't mean we are happy with the club/lack of football president/manager. It just means that the price reduction is a "good start".

    yeah they took a small step so I will do the same by looking in to getting my season tickets back. But I'm still going to be at the protest

    MOLINARO ON TFC: TICKET PRICES NOT THE ISSUE

    [COLOR=#7F8B93 !important]Tom Anselmi is the Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer for MLSE. (Photo: CP/Nathan Denette)[/COLOR]

    TORONTO -- Maple Leafs Sports and Entertainment still doesn't get it.
    They say they get it. They think they get it. They've convinced themselves that they get it. But they don't get it.
