Leaf Fan’s Trivia Answer: “I’m Gonna Go With C, Fire Wilson” (Video)
Many Toronto Maple Leaf fans have been voicing their displeasure with the direction of the club this season by throwing waffles onto the ice at the Air Canada Center and cheering “Fire Wilson,” as in head coach Ron Wilson, who has been coaching the team for three years and has yet to take them to the playoffs.
Despite earning nine out of a possible fourteen points since the All-Star break, the fans don’t appear to be changing their views on Ron Wilson’s job status. One fan in particular took the opportunity to let his thoughts be known during a home game against the Carolina Hurricanes on February 3rd.
With the thousands in attendance focusing their attention on the jumbotron during a break in the action, all Scott Roskar had to do to win the prize (we are not quite sure what that prize was) was answer one simple question:
Which player recorded the most points in his career with the St. John’s Maple Leafs?
A) Kyle Wellwood B) Nathan Dempsey or C) Yanic Perreault
As for Scott’s answer, that would be “C. Fire Wilson.” That made him a winner in both the game and the hearts of every Leaf fan in the building.
