from Bruce Dowbiggin of the Globe and Mail,
With the Maple Leafs floundering, it’s hard not to find fault – okay, a lot of fault – with the lack of progress since Burke grabbed the wheel. But The Fan 590’s Howard Berger has blogged that Burke’s heart doesn’t seem in his work since his son’s death, a suggestion Burke rejects.
So should media mitigate the barbs? Thursday on Andrew Krystal in the Morning on The Fan in Toronto, Krystal interviewed Todd Kays, co-author of Sports Psychology for Dummies. Krystal confessed he was having a hard time dissing Burke in light of his grief. So what’s a talking head supposed to do?
Kays’s response was simple. While we must be sensitive to people’s grief, the Ohio State University professor said the world moves on. “At some point, life goes back on. That’s the sad thing that when somebody dies in our lives, we think the whole world should stop. The reality is, it doesn’t.”
