In Toronto, foam flooring has become a hot topic after the Maple Leafs won the Stanley Cup last season.
However, it appears that some people in the community aren’t happy with the colors and materials used to create them.
The Toronto Maple Leaf is a fan favourite, so when people are upset about the colors, they often have their own reasons for wanting to complain.
According to Toronto Star columnist Tim Leiweke, there is a good chance the Maple Leaf team will be fined by the NHL for using grey flooring.
Leiwek’s comments come just a few weeks after the Toronto Raptors announced that the team had decided to change its colour scheme from green to white.
“We’ve heard complaints from many different people,” Leiweket wrote in a post on his personal website.
“Some people have made up their own colours and used different materials.”
According to the Toronto Star, many residents of the Toronto suburb of Etobicoke want the Maple Leaves to change their colour scheme and have even organized a petition asking the team to change the team name.
“The team has a history of being a symbol of Toronto, and we are looking for a way to honour our history,” the petition reads.
“We are calling on the Maple Leagues Board of Directors to remove the team’s colours from their uniforms, jerseys and equipment.”
The Leafs are not the only team that is struggling to find a colour that suits their unique brand of hardwood flooring, as other major sports teams have also been using grey and white for years.
However the issue isn’t limited to the hockey team, as fans have also begun to complain about the colours used to paint their walls.
In March, the Wall Street Journal reported that some US states were considering banning the use of certain types of foam floor insulation due to the use that the colouring creates for the floor.
The team is also a fixture in Toronto, with fans frequently venting their frustrations online, with the hashtag #marchagainstmacleans trending on Twitter in March.
In recent months, the team has also been fined by an NHL commissioner for using a grey floor.
