Burke Marching marching in the Pride Parade tomorrow
 
Quote:

Brian Burke ‏@LeafsBB20

Proud to be marching in the Pride Parade tomorrow with my son Patrick, Rick Mercer and LGBT ally Steve Craig.
All good and everything, but will Nonis be the one trying to land players?

BTW, I'm not bashing him for doing this in the memory of his son. I'm just asking.

Free Agency starts at 12pm noon. Pride is all day no?

Last time he marched for like 45 mins only from what I recall.

Erdinger 06-30-2012 05:22 PM

at least he isn't in Afghanistan.

ChesapeakeRipper 06-30-2012 05:23 PM

yup, nonis will hold the fort down. this happened last year as well, when he was in Afghanistan.

John-Eric Iannicello 06-30-2012 05:23 PM

Where's Steve Simmons. I'm sure we'll see an article from him in the coming days..

Yup. He is working on it as we speak right now.

KingBuzzo 06-30-2012 05:24 PM

It's awesome that Burkie does this. Nonis is the guy for signings and the march probably isn't an all day thing anyway. It's good for the team, the organization and obviously it's an important thing personally for Burke to do as well.

Hurt 06-30-2012 05:24 PM

He might have already informed his assistants who he wants/how much to go up till. He'll show face at the Parade then get back to work, I'm assuming.

relax

free agency lasts up until Oct and sometimes beyond.

Maybe Simmons should march too. Get an exclusive with Burke.

;)

He walks for about an hour. I'm sure Jordin Tootoo can wait LOL.

We all know he's just the mouthpiece for the management team anyways, this is as good PR as you can get and some people will misconstrue it. It sounds like we might not even pitch Parise or Suter so really why even have him there? He doesn't really get involved in the contracts anyways.

Hyperglide 06-30-2012 05:31 PM

He has a cellphone doesn't he? Also it's not like he's going to be there all day. This is good PR for the Leafs. Also this isn't a Richards situation again is it? I highly doubt we are that much in the mix for Suter or Parise that taking an hour or 2 for parade is gonna kill our chances.

burke already said he isn't going to be in on parise and suter.

Regardless of whether he is or not again how is a 1 hour (give or take) march going to affect anything?

number72 06-30-2012 05:35 PM

Anyone remember how Burke dropped the ball on the Penner offer sheet. It is great he does charity support (just last week he was doing ducks unlimited) but I'm not sure he should bring too much attention to it given the state of the team.

Well the March is in public.. Whether he says anything or not, people will see him.

ForSpareParts* 06-30-2012 05:40 PM

burke,

sunscreen my friend

pooleboy 06-30-2012 05:44 PM

if a player wants to sign with Toronto they will, 1 hour marching isn't going to hurt our chances (and people *****ing about him going over seas to see the soldiers you should be ashamed of yourself.)

im sure they have spent many hours over the last month or 2 on FA, they will be prepared.

It's the Internet, people constantly shoot their mouths off without having any idea what they're talking about.

Wasn't *****ing. Stating that attending the parade isn't like being in Afghanistan should be pretty obvious. But read into it what you want:shakehead

any minute now...lol

Ghostrider1174 06-30-2012 05:53 PM

When Burke says he aint going after Parise and Suter, then he will go after them. When has BB ever said something and done it. None,zero, zlich:yo:

Leafs87 06-30-2012 05:54 PM

Pretty sure he already told nonis which players he would like in on, and the price max. Seems like he's not in on anyone big thoe... Again
