    Sweet Jesus, this has to hurt poor Lynchie.

    The infinetly dumb but politically correct Burton just broke Lynchie’s heart.

    What a plum position to be in: dumb as a rock but no risk whatsoever of losing your job…at all…ever. How can we get that? Oh, never mind.

    I’m just glad we’re not discussing the Bruins. Argh.

  • Guntfather of Sports Radio

    At least thus far Burton is only hosting and not doing one his awful interviews. Imagine him in front of the Belestrator? What a debacle.

  • Corner Blitz

    Burton: “Host?”

  • Scott

    “Coach….T.O?”

  • BigTime

    I love that Belichick will not let Burton anywhere near him or the players. Some “host.”

    i guess it/s the whole defense, see he had so much time to pass,and our pass defense was awful, so i can say belecheck should always go for 4th and 1 when our defense never showed up
