I thought the column was mostly old news. A CEO retired and new ownership took over. Of course there is going to be corporate intrigue.

What I did find interesting was his comment that there were some within Rogers and Bell that wanted a complete house cleaning of the basketball and hockey executives. That's the first time I've read or heard anything beyond: "Even with new owners, it's business as usual at MLSE..."
Cox doesn't have a clue about what some unknown future CEO will think yet he decides to write that Burke will lose his job because he can see the future. So basically more filler that did'nt need to be included in the article but it was because Cox just like the other 99% of Toronto "sports" media is mostly trash.
