  1. I’ve been a leaf fan for twenty five years and Im at the lowest point yet. I am done listening to Brian Burke and all his talk. Wilson needs to…..he should have went last year. He has lost the respect of this team and the fans. Burke and Wilson can keep blaming their losing ways on the fans but I don’t think its to much to ask to want a team that can make the playoffs once every 7 or 8 years. Admirable my ass.
