Media Thread
« on: November 30, 2011, 10:26:14 AM »
We used to have a media thread. Not sure if that is around somewhere still or not but I did not see it.

This could be a place where people post links and make comments on media interviews with guys like Burke, Wilson, Nonis etc.

I just heard that Burke was on TSN Radio this morning in Toronto. Was anything said about Ryan?

It was last night 5pm. Don't have a direct link. Go back to around page 5
http://www2.tsn.ca/window/podcastcentre/#All_TSN_Podcasts&id=1

Here's Nonis interview on FAN590
http://www.fan590.com/ondemand/media.jsp?content=20111130_081154_9396

Both men were asked about trading for Ryan and declined because it's tampering for them to comment.

I think the media thread is a good idea. Thanks.  :)

I love Burke's reply to the question of whether he's considering an extension for Wilson.  "None of your business."

and for why he got a twitter account (paraphrased):
Burke: "... to help fix all the errors in the media"
TSN: "Let's talk about those ...."
Burke: "How long is your show? I don't think we have the time"

 :)

I love how Burke doesn't follow anyone on Twitter either.  "You actually have to care about someone's opinion to follow them"

I also enjoyed his line at a PC last spring when someone tried to present him with media opinion that Wilson should be fired: "tell someone who cares (about the media opinion)"  :)

Well, except that it is a sports journalist's business.  Sometimes I wish Larry Brooks was on the Leafs beat.  He's not a great writer but he's not intimidated by blowhards either.

They definitely don't need to know whether they are working on one or not.

That's if you feel Burke is a blowhard.  Not everybody does.

The media in Toronto are an embarrassment.  Both the Sun and the Star. Between the constant garbage that comes out of SunMediaCor and the whiny tirades back and forth with Rob Ford in the Star....as much as I hate Rob Ford, their editor is going out of their way to post insanely irrelevant photos and captions on every single Ford story.

Someone needs to hold the media accountable for becoming a bunch of arrogant blowhards.

It's insane how far it's moved from a source of news reporting to tabloid garbage - and this is in regards to pretty much everything outside of maybe Christopher Hume and Carol Goar.

Sure. I mean IMO a private company doesn't have to say anything to anybody about injuries and the like outside of their shareholders. Its their right to either give or withhold information. Just because the Leafs have tightened up some on the information they give to the public doesn't influence a smidgen of what Burke, Wilson, the staff, et al. do on a regular basis, so what's the difference?

I don't think fans have the "right" to know anything about the team outside of who's playing, and who's injured. Everything else is a cherry on top. Maybe the Leafs' brass would provide the public with more information if media people not named Jonas Siegel or James Mirtle stopped spin doctoring everything to extremes.
