Burke Sues for Defamation

Going after anonymous posters spreading lies about why he was fired. This could be a very interesting and precedent setting case. Good for Burkie.

Better go back and check all my posts! :eh:

Apparently I was way late to the party, the rest of those posts were like a week before mine.

The Leafs are essentially paying for it, another reason to hate them...

This is almost smells personal against the Canucks (fans and posters as well) to get them back for his and Nonuts firing...

I think he just wants to "out" people and make an example out of them. If he was after retribution he would have gone after the message boards but he choose not to. I think this is just his cause right now. Maybe it takes his mind off being fired. Maybe it has to do with cyber bullying and his son. Maybe he is just enraged with all the stories.

But it does make me mindful of what I post and in the future I will stay clear of the personal stuff. Even though everything I post is rumour unless confirmed directly I believe it to be true as I trust my sources. But I'll keep the personal stuff out here.

And besides, I stopped cheering for the Leafs remember?

What a nutbar suit, petty and makes Burke look even more thinskinned. And how exactly are they tracking down who the people behind the message board names are...I wonder if "Steve" is wishing he'd been a little more creative at this point. But seriously, I live in the US but I post on Canada-based message board, could he have sued me? I rather doubt it, just jurisdictionally...anyway, seems pretty wackadoodle.

Hmmmmm, according this, the only way he has a chance of winning is if he can prove authorship of the rumour....

What stupid thing to do. If he let it go then the rumour dies amongst a small hockey crowd but now it will get wider circulation (and ridicule) with more press.
