Ottawa bans Leafs sweaters

03.19.04

Oh, grow up!

Ottawa city councillors, keen to boost their local Senators NHL ice hockey team, are proposing to ban fans of their hated rival Toronto Maple Leafs from wearing replica team sweaters at games here.

The tongue-in-cheek measure, due to go to a vote next week, could force any Leafs fans who transgress to make a donation to a local food bank.

That would make the Senators the biggest babies of the NHL. If Sens jerseys can fill the Bell Centre, and Habs jerseys can fill the GM Place, then surely Leafs fans can show their colours in Ottawa or anywhere else.

Ottawa has a great team this year. They have a real shot at the Cup. But now that they’re playing with the big boys, they need to get some backbone. The players seem to have figured that out… now the city has to follow suit.

If it’s Ottawa it must be another tax.
