An influential member of the non-sports media
has gotten off the Bryan Murray
bus and is now trying to run him over with it. Jeff Simpson is about as Ottawa
Establishment as you can get without being an ex-wife of Michael Potter
or Mike Cowpland, so this is serious.
According to Wayne Scanlan (@HockeyScanner
) Globe columnist Jeff Simpson, a#Sens
superfan, has written to club prez Cyril Leeder
, demanding a change in mgt.
“It is delusional for him (B. Murray) to say, as was reported yesterday, that this team is a player or two short of making the playoffs. ..if the club does not have a new GM in place by May 1, I will not be renewing my tickets. Nor will I attend any game thereafter.”
Update: The letter itself!
