I said: "This morning, his close friend for decades, and mentor, was just fired from a project they've been working on for years, and he's been thrust into the spotlight and put in control.

It's entirely reasonable for him to look rattled and uncertain."

You think he should be entirely unaffected by that?

This had no place in this press conference and was totally unnecessary. This press conference has been horrible, though I don't know what I was expecting.

The Leafs are in serious trouble.

Did Nonis just diss Burke's idea of a quick turnaround?

Tom is so poor at answering questions and being diplomatic.

It's obvious someone is getting fired Raptors

I was disapointed that Burke got fired (Shocked is a better word lol). But as soon as I seen nonis as the new gm, I can rest easy. Im sure he'll still talk to Burke everyday anyways so it doesn't matter.

Could the Luongo situation have lead to the demise of Brian Burke?

These guys are contradictory themselves at every question. It was a move to change direction and leadership and tone, but they plan to stay the course and continue what Burke has done thus far, it was done to change the tone and style, but they liked Burkes style and wasn't fired due to it. What!? And then the luongo question, tom doesnt have a very good poker face.

This is such meddling by the ownership.

Nonis and Ownership wanted to be patient - they wanted to keep rebuilding - stockpiling.

Burke wanted to WIN NOW - his ego and legacy were on the line - they fired him before he did something stuipid and set the franchise back another 5 years.

After this presser that seems pretty clear to me.

Tom Anselmi said it best, everyone sitting in that room works for a company that is owned by Rogers and Bell.

Nobody is going to rock the boat, they are all going to toss softballs
