It looks like Magic Mitch is clicking unsubscribe this season. Following a stretch of losses on their recent California road trip, Toronto Maple Leafs star Mitch Marner's social media suggestion urged his teammates to keep calm and stay off their phones. But, while the hockey player feels the team would perform better if they unplugged, some fans do not share the same sentiment for Marner’s social media break.\nIt’s no secret that the internet can be a toxic place for all of us on occasion.\nEspecially if you’re Marner: the most mentioned player on Twitter, according to an earlier interview with Sportsnet where the winger revealed he tries to stay offline as much as possible.\nEven Auston Matthews agrees that internet comments can have serious effects on your mental state.\nBut, in a hockey-crazed city like Toronto, we imagine the pressure is even higher.\n“I know media is a big part in this city that we play in, and I think for our team it’s just about staying off that — the social media,” Marner revealed Friday, per TSN.\n“People are just gonna start and get on us. We’re a unit in here. We’re a team. We know what to say to each other to get ourselves going.”\nView this post on Instagram HOME 👏🤟 A post shared by Mitch Marner (@marner_93) on Jan 10, 2020 at 12:21pm PST\nAlmost immediately, some fans were quick to jump on the 22-year-old, getting in his Twitter mentions.\nAnd a few of them joked that Marner's suggested media break was to keep his teammates from seeing how poorly he's played this season.\nOne Twitter-user even stated: "Mitch Marner can suck it up in regards to social media. this medium was at the heart of his silly contract negotiation."\nPretty, pretty harsh.\nMitch Marner has been reading social media and has advised his teammates to stay off of it in the hopes they don’t notice how much Leafs fans are calling out Marner for his absolute shit performances night after night. #LeafsForever— Daniel Heaps (@Heaps88) March 7, 2020\nWhen you watch an immature team, time moves slowly. We’re watching them hoping and praying they mature quickly but it’s not realistic unfortunately. Marner said postgame that they need to get off social media. That’s Immature. Also displays lack of accountability and leadership.— DJ Anthony (@tlaselva) March 7, 2020\nI'd bench Marner simply for his post-game media scrum performance: "if we stay off social media we'll be fine." lol.— Karlo Berkovich (@KarloBerkovich) March 7, 2020\nsocial media suggests Marner up his game level to somebody like Willy— shawn locke (@shawnlocke1) March 7, 2020\nMitch Marner telling the boys to stay off social media is hilarious. Buddy knows how bad he's been— Metal Face (@LongLiveRohit) March 7, 2020\nMarner's first post on Instagram after the statement (an ad for Red Bull) was met with ridicule.\nThough, as noted in his Sportsnet interview, he generally has someone else handle his accounts.\nOf course, as always, the social reaction wasn't all bad. Plenty of more supportive fans understood and even championed the idea that a break from the 'gram is just what the Leafs need.\nAfter all, we could all use a little less screen time on occasion, right?\nFOR WHAT IT’S WORTHI agree with Marner. No player should pay attention to social media. No player should give credence to a bunch of people wanting attention for the wrong reasons. Give your phones up, players.— Veronica 🌶 🐑 (@chile_pepper) March 8, 2020\nMitch Marner suggests that #LeafsForever should stay off social media.... and I’m with him the Toronto media is way to negative and the fans can be #JekyllAndHyde— aBren Coombes (@abCoombes) March 7, 2020\nHow much less heat would Marner be getting if he would have signed for $9.5M? Too much is being made of the media / social media comment, that's just a guy being honest. Ryan O'Reilly was honest once in Buffalo, they over reacted and then he won the cup and the conn smythe— TC (@WineMixers) March 9, 2020\nbe like Mitch Marner, stop using social media— Phiend (@YGPhiend) March 8, 2020\nmarner saying they need to stay off social media is the smartest thing i’ve seen, leafs social media is a toxic negative hell hole for most part and that’s the last thing they need to think about— Peri Gallacher ✨ (@perigallacher) March 7, 2020\nMarner had it right when he said team needs to say off social media. Too much chatter, too many opinions and a ton of bad advice.— Hypnotic Mirage (@hypnotic_mirage) March 7, 2020\n"Marner saying they need to stay off social media is the smartest thing I've seen," said one supporter.\nOnly time will tell if Marner's teammates will follow through on his suggestion, and whether any social media blackout would lead to a successful playoff run.\nThough if it does, maybe some fans will change their mind.
