The Star confirms the chant.

Brian Burke should apologize to Leaf fans

And yet, when he sums up a pathetic failure like this ongoing season, which continued on Tuesday night with a 5-2 loss to the inert New York Islanders, suddenly he’s wishy-washy? Perhaps it’s no coincidence that the Air Canada Centre crowd, when it wasn’t booing the home club on Tuesday, was breaking into a couple of weak but audible chants of “Fire Burke! Fire Burke!”

To put the tenor of the evening in perspective — the Leafs have now won three games in 10 starts under coach Randy Carlyle — there was also an upper-bowl outbreak of another mantra: “Re-hire Wilson! Re-hire Wilson!” So routine is the futility, much of the anger has already given way to comedic apathy.

Signature: There is no greater demonstration of Fan patience then to suggest to "Play the Kids " and be willing to accept the consequences of those actions..
