Burke is a grandstanding self promoter above all else, and this is just another example of him putting his own needs ahead of the team.
If you think this is about Burke and his (alleged) own needs then you are seriously seriously deluded.
I'm personally happy for Burke that he's able to use his position to champion worthwhile causes, but not when it's at the expense of his job.
If you think him being out of the office for an hour or two is going to have any effect on negotiations then you really have no idea how these things work. Nonis does the majority of the work, not Burke.
