Well we had a good run...
« on: April 23, 2017, 10:37:28 PM »
Well we had a good run...But we fell a little short...

These kids will carry this team much further in the coming years but we are a couple of components short right now...

As is stated in the title "we had a good run" and so has this web site TMLForum.com.

We've been on since May of 2004 so it has been a great run for me personally.

Due to personal reasons TMLForum will shut down for the final time at the end of the 2016/17 season or May the 1st. whichever comes first.

Its been a blast for almost 14 years but I have made the very difficult decision to shut everything down. I want to personally thank all the family members who over the years have kept us up to date and informed. Rubens, oldiesmann, B_Wforever, bleedinblue, sergio, Leafer, capncrunch44, caper, Leafer4Life, charette, and crazykaka to mention just a few. A very special thanks goes out to Leafer4Life for your dedication in posting the game day talks without ever missing a game. I thank all of you for staying with me for so very long. I will remember each and every one of you with fondness. Saying goodbye to members I view as family is really tough. But I bid you fairwell with the hope that we would meet again one day.

To all of you. Thank You, Thank You, Thank You, for these years of total joy.

GO LEAFS GO!                GO LEAFS GO!

Thanks for your time and efforts in keeping this forum running for past 13 years Tony.   :tup:
Like you mentioned it's a family here and all will be missed.
Take care and know that the Leafs are on the road to something very special.

Thanks Tony!
Not sure where I am supposed to find opinions of people I trust this offseason. There is a lot of crap out there.

Thank you all, and thank you Tony for maintaining the site for so long.
This is the only leaf site I have posted on, since some of us found our way over here when the leaf "quote zone" was shut down years ago.
We should all pick a new site to join together. If anyone has suggestions, it would be appreciated.

I've only posted occasionally over the last 13 years, but it's been a great website and thanks for all the efforts, comments and banter in that time. Much has happened over those years on and off the ice. I'd never been to Canada when I signed up, since been 4 times and taken in 5 Leafs games, and since my last visit have got married, become a father, graduated aged 41 after studying part time, and had a good promotion at work. I'm sure everyone else has seen much change. On the ice, after years of frustration we are now heading in the right direction, what a season we've had, and it will only get better! All the best to everyone. Go Leafs Go!  :glg:

Wow. What to say. Thanks for the dedication to running this site the last 14 years Tony - You too Reubens. I know I haven't been as active as I would have liked over the past few years but there have been a lot of changes in my life. I've moved to a new town, bought a house, changed professions, met the love of my life and in just over a year will be making her my wife. I hope everyone else's life has been as interesting. Even when I wasn't posting I was still coming on and reading. This was the best site I had found where everyone treated everyone else and their opinions with respect. I don't know where I will go now. Thanks again Tony! To the rest of you - Go Leafs Go and catch you on the flip side

 I am sorry to see the site going but want to thank you and Rubens for the hard work and dedication you and others have done to keep this a fun place to go. I haven't been on much the last couple of years but I am sorry to see the site close.
It takes more work than I will know to keep this going for as long as you and others have and appreciate everything that you have all done.
I will check out the link for the site that leafer posted. Not sure we will be able to find one as good as TMLForum though.
I have a lot of great memories and will miss it.Take care and all the best to everybody.
GO LEAFS GO !!!   :glg:

Thanks Tony for helping me building the scrapbook for all these years. I really appreciated your dedication to TML Forum. I wish you the best in the years to come and who knows, maybe a Stanley Cup to celebrate as the new generation of Leafs players look very promising!

Thanks again. Best regards!

The Evolution Of The Toronto Maple Leafs Jersey


Toronto Maple Leafs Jersey History

A Proud Franchise With Strong Tradition And Rich History

13 Stanley Cups

The Toronto Maple Leafs have an incredibly rich history and are arguably the most storied franchise in all of hockey. While the tradition runs deep with 13 Stanley Cups, the last of which came in 1967, the organization was considered a dynasty in the 1940's and 1960's only to be followed by five long decades of drought that began with the Ballard years up until the present day. While a resurgence through the Pat Burns teams of the 1990's and Pat Quinn in the early 2000's brought some respectability back to the organization despite still falling short, the patience of every Leafs fan is at an all time high. And yet an undying support with fierce loyalty for the Blue and White also remains. With the arrival of Brendan Shanahan, Lou Lamoriello and Mike Babcock, Leafs Nation remains cautiously optimistic that our beloved Buds have finally turned the corner to put Canada's Team back on the map.
