For me what will happen next....I did NOT renew my seasons tickets after 15 (incl.covid) years - I am disgusted by the Burke family and disappointed that Denise has not said a word about her boys - shameful. I'm out.

There are corporate strategies that work in cases like this and those that don't anymore. Twenty years ago the advice would have been keep your mouth shut, head in the sand, admit nothing and let the storm pass you by.

This is not today's strategy. Had I been tasked with putting a communications strategy in place for the team, I would have had both owners out front at the earliest opportunity, condemning the chat and reaffirming that their corporate values include diversity and respect. I would have then had Denise say front and center, this is not acceptable, this was not how they were raised, and as a mother, a person in business, and as team owner, that was not tolerable. Lastly, speak to reparations: some form of re-training, counseling or education to counteract their misogyny and homophobia, and the hurt and division that such statements cause. Then focus on the good work they have done in those fields in the past as owners (which they have) and then continue.

...unfortunately, no one asked me.

Does it matter?? I pointed out the obvious. I am sorry that you are probably a Burke relative? Tell me what I have said that is wrong? What does that even mean?

I look at the records of the Brantford teams he owns and question whether we're better off with the Burke boys or not. It would be really nice if an older NHLer or former NHL with some cash bought the team as a retirement project. Maybe a guy like former IceDog Jason Spezza?
