I mean, for non Leaf fans it probably wouldn't be too hard. But, for us here who get to see the product he's putting together, his community awareness and just being a solid person, I can't see how anybody couldn't respect a guy like him.
We're talking about a good chunk of hockey fans. The same people who would rather listen to hockey players spew the same old cliched answers in interviews than listen to a man like Burke who actually likes to share his opinions.
People are being forced to choose between Burke vs Cherry.
Because Hfboards (master) debaters point out all the negatives and worst attributes of each individual.
And conveniently discredit, ignore and gloss over each of their (limited) positives points
wow, kinda shocked he's a Democrat, would have never guessed by his stance on certain issues
i guess i learned something new
Really? There's almost no republican out there who would walk in the gay pride parade. It's a far right party and isn't known for being tolerant whatsoever. Oddly enough, Dick Cheney's daughter is gay, whenever the subject was brought up you'd think he was going to have another heart attack.
People who microwave fish will be offended by his comment.
For all the talk Burke has, that his family accept the retarded, gay, less fortunate, he does not treat people who choose to microwave their fish well. It is a bit insensitive and intolerant, albeit very funny, if you microwave fish and are singled out and made fun of by society.
The amount of heat this man takes is so undeserved.
I don't always agree with things that Burke says or does, but this is a man that stands up for what he believes in. How many of us can honestly say that about ourselves? A man like that deserves respect.
