Has Toronto Maple Leafs boss Brian Burke had enough of Don Cherry?
An insider told QMI Agency Burke is tired of Cherry criticizing his team — in particular, his coach — and he is contemplating asking for a meeting with CBC brass to complain.
“He is furious at the comment Cherry made about Ron Wilson not applauding for the troops and for other things too,” said an insider. “He is fiercely loyal to his guys.”
On Jan. 14, Cherry mentioned during a broadcast that visiting New York Ranger coach John Tortorella applauded when the troops were introduced at a recent Armed Forced appreciation game at the Air Canada Centre in Toronto.
He also called a clapping Leafs assistant coach Rob Zettler “a good Canadian boy.”
But he said Wilson and other coaches “couldn’t have cared less.”
