It all goes back to Burke publicly embarrassing Simmons and making accurate comments when he claimed the Toronto Sun was only good for cleaning up pet droppings.

It is quite clear that Simmons now has an axe to grind and his shots at Burke are totally biased and just some weak-handed revenge ploy. I don't think I would be thrilled if Burke decided to go to Hawaii to party up on July 1st, but I think going to Afghanistan is part of his job.

Not only that, but I think we all know he is more of a figurehead and the spokesperson for an executive team rather than a one-man show. I think Burke is more of a "big picture" and "team philosophy" kind of guy in our organization. He knows what kind of players we need and the direction the team should know, but the real legwork is done by the two Daves, and then our capologist Loiselle handles contracts, and Rick Dudley probably will be given a role as some sort of internal check on talent evaluation.
