Blaster, he mocked someone who had the courage to come out about his child abuse for said child abuse. This is indefensible, hence I guess your random comparisons to physical beating of women to try to proclaim Burrows "not as bad as this".

Fallacy of relative privation (also known as "appeal to worse problems" or "not as bad as") – dismissing an argument or complaint due to the existence of more important problems in the world.

Ie. “Burrows isn’t as bad as X”, “Burrows isn’t in the Klan”, “Burrows doesn’t beat his wife” as justification that he’s a good guy.

Being an ####### and not being in the KKK doesn’t make you less of an #######.

Burrows is one of my most hated players of all time. When I saw that clip of him and Kesler chirping Backes about his wife, it sealed it for me. The guy is the epitome of classless.

Won’t miss him, not surprised that Vancouver will.

They are still talking about this on local radio in Vancouver. Burrows’s hockey career has been the top story on TSN 1040 all week, and that idiot David Pratt is still going on about him this AM.

My random comparisons? What? Someone else made the comparison and I called it out as nothing even remotely close.

You guys all keep hammering the O'Sullivan thing which is the one that Burrows actually apologized for (albeit eventually).

Except I'm not dismissing people's reasons for disliking Burrows. I understand those reasons just fine. I am dismissing comparisons to what he did in his NHL career being on par with a guy who tried to beat his girlfriend to death and being a member of the Klu Klux klan. I didn't bring these comparisons up toake burrows less bad. Others did to try amdake him sound much worse than he was.

True, but that isn't the argument.

I mean, I can hear you. And if you can back what you said up, I am very willing to change my mind, but no, hearsay on the internet usually won't change my mind. I've talked with guys that played against him on the national level, and they all say he was a #### to play against, but if he was racist towards them I doubt they would have cheered for him once he was a Canuck.

Can we lock this thread? Burrows is garbage and debating his garbageness is below us all. It's not even a discussion worth having. He's gone and gone for good.
