At it again? Overtly biased coverage against Blue Jays is outrageous

A few years ago I observed the biased manner in which the Blue Jays were covered in the media. It had appeared that they stopped doing this...but recently, I saw this list of headlines at Yahoo Sports:

This is so not cool.

What's wrong with this picture?

Here's a shot of the Leafs-Hurricanes game last night... we can see in the below image the kind of hockey the Leafs play that could only end in losing. 

Does it really take four Leafs to contend with two 'Canes in the corner, and isn't anyone going to pick up the 'Cane all alone in front of the net?  Anyone? Bueller?

Sheesh, I knew better than this as a kid playing house league.

"Mecca of hockey?" What a joke - guess that's why we call them the Maple Laughs. But the joke is really on the so-called fans who pay the princeliest price for a ticket in the league just to be treated to this garbage masquerading as professional hockey.

By the way, yes, the Laughs were leading 1-0 at this point in the game. However, they went on to lose 4-1. Hard to be surprised with positioning - for lack of a better term - such as the above.
