Well it really is too bad that they may have left on such a sour note if the sale does in fact happen. However I still think that the sale was being contemplated prior to their sons stupidity . These things do not just develop over the span of a week or two it takes months and months of negotiations and due diligence.

We have a lot to be grateful for Bill and Denise Burke. We would not have that beautiful arena without their dedication to building a regional fan base and I am sure hours upon hours of lobbying for it to get done. I hate to say it but the worst move they made was appointing their sons in charge of important positions. And we all knew it was going to happen eventually. But wow did that ever blow up in their faces.

I wonder when they were calling the scouting staff horse **** if the boys knew the team was going to be sold?

They basically ruined what could have been a lucrative career for them as GM and coach and eventual owners.

I hope the devil we do not know is not worse than the devils we knew lol

I am really looking forward to some new voices in the GM spot and on the bench.

I really hope this goes through.

The last couple of years feels like a black cloud hanging over this franchise because of the Burke show

I was one of the people that suggested that the team should move on from Marty as I thought and many others did that he had lost the room.
Never, ever did I ever think that the unimaginable would happen. Never thought the Burkes would sacrifice the franchise over their boys. . Oops. Wrong

Well I was totally expecting the boys would eventually be GM and coach of the team the writing was on the wall

I figured maybe they wouldn?t get those titles until like their forties though lol

If he knows how to, why isn't there a championship banner hanging in the Meridian Centre?

He had a great team and couldn't finish (again), it was time to go. I had hoped they would get someone better, rather than worse. I stand by my "want".

I thought they would retain Assistant GM and Assistant HC in perpetuity.
