At some level he's probably right.
Pretty much all the chairs at Air Canada Centre are leased out to corporate nabobs who never show up anyway, unless there's a serious game on deck. Their seats are filled with their poor cousins and various freeloaders who are not necessarily committed to the success of the Maple Leafs.
But if you don't mind me saying so, it's more than a bit uppity for Kadri to voice this complaint.
Some poor pathetic fan who has no doubt been a Leaf's booster his whole life, tosses his Leafs jersey on the ice, a jersey that he probably spent over a hundred bucks for at the wildly over-priced memorabilia kiosk in the lobby, because he is totally disgusted with the game his Leafs are putting on.
And Kadri has the gall to opine that his team does not need fans like that!?
Memo to Kadri;
Hey asshole, your fan base doesn't need a team like this. Fuck off already with your opinionating, and if you're not up to playing hockey, make room for people who want to.
A Leafs fan.
