Don Cherry vs. Brian Burke
Brian Burke’s current battle with Don Cherry is pretty absurd in my opinion. Why? Management and players in the NHL are making a lot of money because they are in the public eye as part of professional competition, and since they are competing and fans are paying, every fan has the right to be critical and so do commentators and analysts. If Burke does not like Don Cherry’s comments about Ron Wilson—too bad! There is a very good chance that the Leafs will miss the playoffs again and much of the blame rests on Burke himself and also on Ron Wilson. Burke wants special treatment that he does not deserve. I have a solution to the problem: Shove a soother in Burke’s mouth!
