TORONTO -- Randy Carlyle wont watch HBOs "24/7" until the series is over. Kasey Redfern Jersey . Of course that doesnt mean hes ignoring it. Thats actually rather impossible given the behind-the-scenes access to the Toronto Maple Leafs the network is getting. "Its not normal what were living right now," Carlyle said Friday. "These people are professional people, they try to make it as easy as possible. But its not easy to sit and give a team meeting and have a team meeting with a camera and a microphone. Its just not normal for us. Weve never had to do that." Its a whole new world the Leafs and Detroit Red Wings have been living in during the lead-up to the Winter Classic. Carlyle had his reservations about the intrusiveness of the process before the camera crew arrived, but he has also justified it as part of the deal that comes with being in Toronto. Working through it is the challenge. "Ive talked about white noise and Ive talked about distraction and this is just another one for us," Carlyle said. "Its hard in some ways to blame people for not paying attention to it or not being attached to it, but on the other hand, we have a job to do." A few players said they werent bothered by the HBO cameras after getting used to their presence earlier this month. "Theyre pretty good at hiding and staying in the background," defenceman Carl Gunnarsson said. Goaltender James Reimer agreed, pointing out that his job and those of his teammates arent affected nearly as much as Carlyles. "I think its, honestly, worse for the coaches," Reimer said. "For us we just kind of do what we normally do. I dont think it does disrupt too much, but I think when youre talking and giving the team whatever if its a pump-up message or just talking about the game and having the camera right in your kitchen, I think its honestly more awkward and harder for them than it is for us. "I know that if I had to talk to a team with a camera in my face, that would be more distracting." In addition to praising the professionalism of HBO employees, Carlyle said theyve respected his privacy when he requested it. "But its just not normal," he added. "Its not a normal everyday thing that were accustomed to, and it does take some getting used to." Unlike Carlyle, Reimer watched the first episode last week and enjoyed it. As for not helping Carlyle with his toaster dilemma, a talking point in the first episode, the Leafs goaltender didnt feel too badly about it. "I didnt know what to do, either," Reimer said. "I didnt know what was going on. It was above my education level." Brandon Thomas Jersey . Future Hall of Famer Ricky Ray is in his prime and back for a third season in double blue. The 34-year old was magnificent in 2013, throwing for just under 2,900 yards despite missing eight games, tossing an impressive 21 touchdowns against just two interceptions, completing 66 per cent of his passes in the process. Travis Swanson Jersey .Currently no, Tatjana Haenni, FIFAs deputy director of the competitions division and head of womens competitions, said Tuesday in an interview from Ottawa.The big moves continue for Toronto FC as they are reportedly on the verge of signing Roma and U.S. International midfielder Michael Bradley. ESPN soccer analysts Taylor Twellman and Alexi Lalas are both reporting that the 26-year-old Serie A star will join Tottenham striker Jermain Defoe as the latest huge signing Toronto FC has made from a European soccer club this off-season. The Princeton, New Jersey native played for the U.S. national team at tthe 2010 World Cup in South Africa and has also played for MetroStars in the MLS as well as Heerenveen, Borussia Monchengladbach and Chievo Verona. Ziggy Ansah Jersey. Maple Leafs Sports & Entertainment CEO Tim Leiweke and Toronto FC general manager Tim Bezbatchenko have also added designated player Gilberto from Brazil this winter as they attempt to remake a franchise that has not qualified for the playoffs during its seven-season existence.
