Secondly - Burke firing Wilson directly contradicts your bit about "responsible GMs don't make excuses" for the team's slide. Firing Wilson was Burke's clear-as-day suggestion that this was Wilson's fault.
But carry on seeing things through deluded glasses if it helps
Some people just cant stand being wrong. A year on and people still defend Burke for keeping Wilson on.
Burke fired him because, as he said, it would be 'inhumane' to subject him to the 'fire Wilson' chats any longer. Not because he felt it was the right thing.
