According to CBC Boss, Burke didn't want Don Cherry fired.

“I can’t speak (for Cherry), but I can say Brian Burke specifically told me: ‘I don’t want the guy fired.’ ” Jeffrey Orridge, head of CBC Sports, said in an interview on Sunday.

Probably cause Burke went to the government and told them to say this.

You'd have to be pretty dumb to think Burke actually tried to get him fired in the first place.

He wanted to have him censored, which is worse. Nothing to see here.

Burke couldn't get cherry fired if he tried. If the separatist party and ndp in Ottawa couldn't then good luck to some seasonal resident from the us

Oh alright, I didn't see it. Don't watch CC that often anymore. Well Cherry must have assumed, or took something the wrong way if the cbc report is true.

Just sounds like a he said, she said pissing match right now. Nobody wins those.

i like cherry but he was was off base in his accusations of Burke..

Burke is a good man, he wouldn't want to get someone fired.. he simply asked if Cherry could tone it down on blasting his coach.. but whatever didn't work so that's fine.

his ontario player rant was complete crap considering burke drafted more ontario born players then any other team since his tenure as GM.. laughable to say that. yea we don't have any current ontario players on the roster but we will down the road.

and we've got quite a few canadians in the pipeline and on the current roster.

Anytime you go above someone and complain to their boss, you want them fired.

No you don't. I guess your job doesn't have a hierarchy or chain of command?

If i have an issue at work with someone and my boss doesn't do anything about it and he's aware of the situation, i will go above him to his superior.. does that mean i want him fired? No, it means the person before wasn't getting the job done or competant enough to address the issues i've had. so you take it to the next level. trying to resolve a conflict doesn't mean you want someone fired. It's just that.. get the conflict/issue resolved.

Definitely a surprise that this isn't on the main board.

According to Cox today:

Burke may (should) have bigger fish to fry these days with his plummeting hockey club, but he believes he's speaking for all the Canadian-based NHL clubs in that he wants either the CBC to exert greater editorial control over Cherry, or he says the next national TV deal, should it involve the CBC, must include editorial input from the NHL.

http://thestar.blogs.com/thespin/

Burke needs to mind his own f^cking business and do his own job. Cherry has been doing it his way for 30 years. He won't allow Burke, or anyone for that matter, to neuter their show. Maybe Burke can resign and the CBC can hire him to do the job instead. Or perhaps Cherry can approach the board of MLSE and let them know that he'd appreciate it if MLSE would exert more control over Burke's trades/signings as the great fans of Toronto are getting VERY restless.

Editorial input from the NHL? More control for Bettman? Is this a joke?

it's disturbing when Cherry uses hockey as a political platform.

According to Ron, he wanted them muzzled. That is like telling a prostitute that she can still entertain but she has to keep her clothes on.

I think Burke wanted to muzzle Don Cherry. Which is almost as bad.

He didn't want him muzzled. All Burke wanted was an answer from Cherry and MacLean about why they unnecessarily bashed Ron Wilson for something as silly as not clapping. They didn't want to meet with Burke when he requested so Burke went to their boss. Seems fair since all Burke wanted was an answer.

I doubt this will do much for the Burke Bashers. Cherry blew his dog whistle and his followers went nuts over his so called patriotism (xenophobia).

How dare Burke call out a member of the media with a big following and stick up for his coach. That Cherry rant on Wilson where Don took one small video clip of Wilson not clapping for the troops and uses it to his advantage to paint a completely inaccurate picture about Wilson was just horrible analysis/journalism. If Don actually did something called research he'd see that Wilson and Burke have had many initiatives that support the troops.

The sad thing is that people listen to Cherry and actually trust/support his opinions despite how completely inaccurate and out of context they normally are.

Just for the record this isn't entirely about the Leafs. MacLean especially is fanatically pro-NHLPA and has in the past acted more or less as their mouthpiece in an antagonistic manner towards NHL management. Part of Burke's threat is aimed at stopping this sort of proselytizing through the upcoming labor negotiations - hence the request for greater "NHL influence on the content" part of the issue.

all that happened here was Burke wanted cherry to be told to tone some things down. Cherry took it as though Burke was trying to get him fired. Simply because cherry would have much more appreciated a personal man to man conversation regarding the situation. Burke chose not to. Cherry chose to call out Burke for basically not tAlking to him the old fashioned way. Solution = Burke has plenty other crap in the media to deal with why add more to that problem. Cherry should be a little more objective on CC. Font worry be happy
