I don't think he really weaseled out of here, given what that kind of characterisation entails IMO. I think he played with open cards with the owners who simply respected his wish to move. But otherwise, yeah, I don't have any issues with recognizing the shape he left us in, and that deal - while difficult given the situation - sure as hell didn't help. I'm all for a balanced review of Burke's time here.
