What’s In A Crest?

Friday, August 19th, 2011

If you’re a premier league fan or a fan of the culture and artistry around football period, then you may want to check out this article/infographic at

I guess the level of importance you put on something like a club crest differs from person to person but I’ve always taken it VERY seriously.  Hope you guys enjoy this as much as I did.  Here’s another couple of snippets from the info graphic.  (I won’t publish the whole thing here because that wouldn’t be fair to the people that went through all the trouble to go and create it.)


We’re one month into fall and the Leafs are already on the ground

Toronto fans I feel your pain, after a decent pre-season…you probably didn’t see this coming. Yes they have stumbled out of the gate, but isn’t it too early to be reaching for the panic button? Let’s examine…

Toronto is off to it’s worst start in franchise history, and Ron Wilson has already called more audibles than Peyton Manning. So far the head coach has used three different puck stoppers, changed up lines, sat some players, and his team still hasn’t cracked the egg in the win column.

The new look blue line was suppose to help lower last season’s NHL leading 286 goals against. Six games in and the team has allowed a league high 28 goals and is on pace to surrender a whopping 383 by season’s end.

Offensively, Toronto has hit the back of the net just 13 times, but help could be on the way in the next few weeks with the debut of Phil Kessel. His addition should help spark a somewhat anemic offense.

In net, Vesa Toskala’s play has led to more questions than a first date. Jonas Gustavsson is set to return next week vs. Vancouver and could become #1 in the crease sooner than expected.

Erase the usual slow starts, work on special teams and voila brighter days are ahead! After all things can only get better right?

Here’s my suggestion Leaf fans, take a deep breathe and exhale. Losing stinks, and it’s a frustrating start but if your boys can somehow turn it around and make the playoffs everyone will forget about the franchise futility to start the season. By the way, that’s a very big IF!!!
