well, here's the thing, does Rogers have a history of meddling with the Jays? No. No they do not.

Lets not bash ownership until we know what their plan for the future is.

When your teams MLSE execs have to humble themselves and issue public apology letters for the poor results of the team and the GMs performance reflective of that, you know the end is near.

Some very wise people said this season was "Playoffs or Burke or Bust" and that very wise prognostication couldn't have been more accurate.
A clear message from ownership that losing will not be tolerated. That even the "man" will be held accountable.

A great day.

J. Ferguson: 4 years, 4 months (-1.0 lockout year) ---- 162-123-43 - 92pt pace
Brian Burke: 4 years, 2 months (-0.5 lockout year) ---- 136-144-48 - 80pt pace



I wouldn't be surprised if this was management pushing for a luongo trade, and Burke refusing.

I feel very uneasy about this.
we better get a good ass replacement because atm I don't see any smart ones around that are willing to leave their jobs.

I am beyond livid atm.

I wonder if we're entering another time of organizational in-fighting like in the mid-1990's.
We never left those times...

Is it possible this has to do with Luongo? Maybe Burke didn't want to acquire him and build a team like that but higher ups wanted leafs to push for a playoff spot sooner? Conflict of interest?

I don't know. Just someone brought it up on habs board, figured i'd ask if it seems plausible.

Remind me again why I wanted this lockout to end. Us Leaf fans would have been better off if they just shut down the season.

This is embarassing.

For the people out there cheering this move...

Please realize this is like pressing the reset button.

There is absolutely no guarantees the new GM will come in and want to tank. For all we know it could be some young impressionable guy like JFJ who MLSE can "mould" which means... make him do what we want.

I'll reserve judgement until we get word on the replacement... but from the outset this looks like an awful awful move for an organization that was just starting to form an identity
