EP 156 - MARK KIRTON on the Toronto Maple Leafs and his fight against ALS.


Former Maple Leaf, MARK KIRTON, joins the podcast to talk about his former teams not so shocking game seven collapse, and what on earth went wrong for them this time.

The three discuss what is next for the team after another first round exit - Who do you trade, who do you keep and ultimately... who deserves most of the blame for their lack-lustre playoff performance.

We also get to learn about his battle with ALS, after being diagnosed in 2018. Also known as Lou Gehrig’s Disease, ALS is a neurological disorder with no cure that causes gradual weakening of muscles and eventual death.

Mark has been incredibly active in his pursuit to spread awareness for the disease - He has raised $30,000 in the first 60 hours after launching a fundraising page last week.

You can check out his twitter campaign @KirtsSpeaksALS where he’s posting daily video messages from some of the biggest names in the sport.
