Some fans think Burke is all hot air, who isn't held accountable for his results, and in general don't trust him.
The relationship is dysfunctional and Burke is doing himself no favours.
I don't believe his focus will ever be on the fans having a problem. Our problem derives from the team having a problem, and therefore is only tangent to the situation.
His attention is on the Maple Leafs, and he knows that there is a problem there; far better than us. No need to deny this by referencing his press speeches. No sane manager would ever admit publicly to there being a problem, or saying his team is not play-off calibre, and calling out his players. Bad business.
