Tower Talk: September 18, 2013


Maple Leafs

Tim Leiweke wants to put fans pack in their seats at the ACC…not selling tickets wise obviously, but those people in the bunker suites whom are more concerned with the free spread and drinks down below than the actual game. [Globe & Mail]

Jerry D’Amigo came into camp as a prospect for the Toronto Maple Leafs, now that he’s been cut this early in camp, can we really consider him one? [Globe & Mail]

Along with D’Amigo, the Leafs cut a large chunk out of their training camp roster, most notably first round pick Fredrik Gauthier is headed back to junior. [Toronto Star]

Buffalo Bills

No one can deny that Stevie Johnson is a talented football player, but ask whether he’s a good football player and you’ll receive mixed responses. [Bleacher Report]

Speaking of wide receivers, Robert Woods is slowly carving out a role for himself with his excellent play. [BuffaloBills.com]

The Bills’ second-round draft pick out of Oregon Kiko Alonso has made an instant impact in Buffalo, he has been on the field for every one of the team’s 170 defensive snaps through the first two weeks, the only Bill on defense to do so. [Buffalo News]

Blue Jays

It was a Tuesday night, I had just gotten back from a run, and I was too lazy to do anything else, so I turned on the Jays game (something I haven’t done for a couple of weeks sadly) and I was surprised to see R.A. Dickey making his knuckler dance and dominating the Yankees lineup like we all imagined in the offseason. [CTV News]

22 different Blue Jays regulars hit the disabled list this season, which is kind of awful. With another year filled with injuries, is this on the Blue Jays? [Sportsnet]

Mariano Rivera is making his final stop in Toronto, and that’s a big deal or something. I find this farewell tour borderline vomit inducing, but that’s just me. [Toronto Star]

Raptors

How is the Raptors offense going to look this season? Too many jump shots from Rudy Gay and not enough touches for Jonas Valanciunas more than likely. [Raptors Republic]

This looks like completely fabricated, baseless speculation, but there’s not much else to talk about in Raptors land at the moment, so…Rudy to the Jazz? [Digital Journal]
