Why we boo our former players


While respecting the fans right to do so, The Toronto Star's Dave Perkins takes a look at the different reasons why we boo our former players when they come back with new teams. Personally, I've never been one to boo players, ours or the other teams, unless they actually do something contemptible. And by and large I really don't understand booing former players. To my mind I always wish them well on their new teams and am usually happy to see them back in town, so if anything am inclined to give them a warm round of applause.
