Just a lot of smart ass comments above as usual I see.............sounds like hardly a parent amongst the lot of you.

As for the Leafs jibes, why shouldn't the kid like the Leafs..............after all this forum has quite a few adult Canucks fans on it (including me) and the Canucks have NEVER won a cup.............what does that say about us?

Well done to the Mum/Mom she was doing what any decent parent would have done.


Oh I forgot...........lol


I have kids and if it were one of mine, I'd probably have something to say as well. (although I'd probably say it to the faux Santa rather than his employers)

However, one must remember that here on CDC, (and in the absence of actual physical harm, of course) disdain for anything Maple Leaf-centric (or Toronto-centric for that matter) trumps any sense of moral outrage that we might otherwise feel..

Orland Kurtenbach and Dennis Kearns had just been torched 8-1 by the Habs, but they still took time to come out to meet us, some fellow BC boys who were playing hockey in Montreal. THAT"S what being a Canuck is!

With the lockout we could all use the Leaf laughs. Thanks, Santa!

Whatever, oldnews. Kessel is better than Seguin and Hamilton combined.

Don't you believe in fairy tales?

I like the Leafs, and I like Kessel, but I'd rather have the Canadian born Seguin and Hamilton any day.

I am a huge Kessel fan too

Fair enough. I just think there are already too many attempts to take the romance and naivety out of Christmas where children are concerned and as someone born in '45 I can safely say it's not doing any good.

PS I really don't mind the Leafs and as far as I'm concerned the sooner they are back near the top the better for hockey.

Did that really sound good in your head?

Why not just abolish Christmas altogether then, when your views are so base that I doubt you could relate to a child's image of Christmas anyway.

Actually, I'm not particularly a Leaf-hater either. They've been bad for so long, they're pretty much beneath my contempt. I just thought I'd poke some fun....

Also, as a fellow Geezer, ('61) I agree with the Christmas sentiment. :)

Maybe mommy took the "lumberjack" comment wrong. Maybe the kid was strong, huge and wearing lumberjack style clothes.

I can cut Santa slack, maybe he is a disgruntled Leaf fan. But yes he should have kept his mouth shut about that.

Oddly enough we have Easter with an Easter Bunny, but I don't see a guy in a bunny suit in stores. There's a tooth fairy, and I don't see a Tooth Fairy running around a dentist's office (Thank God). Maybe because Christmas is too commercial already. I'm all for happy children, but I'm sure the world won't end if Santa isn't in every mall in town. There was a Santa Paws at Bosley's this weekend. Yikes....

What's wrong with just waiting for Father Christmas to visit and bring presents? (No chimney's, no reindeer, etc.)

geesh.... I thought it was fairly obvious. Maybe I'm too deadpan.

Funnily enough, I have both Seguin and Hamilton in my pool. Ask me what I'd need back to trade them both together.....

Kids need to toughen up by learning the truth early on.. Kudos to Santa, trying to build a stronger future.


That's the problem to begin with. I don't plan on leading my children to believe Santa is genuinely real.

obviously he was wrong for acting that way and probably should be fired, but she sounds like a bit of a crazy mom. The kid probably had no clue who bunyan is and how many times does the phrase leafs suck get said in toronto a day? probably enough for the kid to hear it every so often.

She beefed up her story by saying he was inconsolable and cried the whole way home. I bet that was more to do with mommy (rightfully so) dragging her kid away from santa, who he'd been looking forward to seeing all week. Not because just realized the jacket he thought was hip and cool actually made him look like paul bunyan, coupled with an instant realization the toronto maple leafs dont win hockey games.

dont worry little buddy, if you were a good boy, santa just might bring you a luongo for christmas

Cried all the way home to Mississauga? Jeez that kid has bigger issues than a bad Santa I think.

someone finally told him the truth about his favorite team, his world was shattered, and the brilliance of the truth was hurting his eyes.

Don't think the Paul Bunyan thing was meant to be an insult. The Leafs thing was probably Santa just trying to be funny, but picking a terrible situation to do it in.

'I caught mommy bitching at Santa Claus'

Anywho seems to be that the kid was probably more embarrassed at his mom making a scene then what Santa said. After all he would of started crying immediately after the comment, but his mom decided to be a total beehatch and probably scared her kid in the process. Two pretty harmless comments to get someone fired over, remember what goes around comes around Mary.

"He knows if you've been bad or good..."

And quite simply, the Leafs have been BAD.

When Santa says the Leafs suck, he knows what the hell he's talking about!!!
