well Burke did promise Strachan that he would re-sign immediately if he was given a $2mill contract, and this was months before he was officially not re-signed, I'd guess that Strachan was way off...

as far as Burke becoming a TV personality?? I don't really see it... sure he's entertaining and all, but I dont' see him being a media guy - he eats media guys for breakfast!!

what's next... Jennifer Mathers becoming a GM as they switch professions

(btw... for those that don't know Mathers is a media personality in Vancouver, and Burke's wife).
