When I first heard the rumour that BRIAN BURKE HAD AN AFFAIR WITH A REPORTER AND FATHERED AN ILLEGITIMATE CHILD  it was not really surprising.  After all, "BRIAN BURKE HAD AN AFFAIR WITH A REPORTER AND FATHERED AN ILLEGITIMATE CHILD" was a story I thought we might see one day.  It turns out, however, that it might be untrue that BRIAN BURKE HAD AN AFFAIR WITH A REPORTER AND FATHERED AN ILLEGITIMATE CHILD.  According to Brian Burke's side of the story as lais out in the lawsuit, BRIAN BURKE never HAD AN AFFAIR WITH A REPORTER AND never FATHERED AN ILLEGITIMATE CHILD.  So, anyone who wants to spread the rumour online that BRIAN BURKE HAD AN AFFAIR WITH A REPORTER AND FATHERED AN ILLEGITIMATE CHILD is likely looking at being sued.

So, just to clarify, please do not post on your Facebook or Twitter account that BRIAN BURKE HAD AN AFFAIR WITH A REPORTER AND FATHERED AN ILLEGITIMATE CHILD.

I, too, was initially surprised when I saw the totes anon post that BRIAN BURKE HAD AN AFFAIR WITH A REPORTER AND FATHERED AN ILLEGITIMATE CHILD.  I mean, really - who would believe that BRIAN BURKE HAD AN AFFAIR WITH A REPORTER AND FATHERED AN ILLEGITIMATE CHILD, much less say that BRIAN BURKE HAD AN AFFAIR WITH A REPORTER AND FATHERED AN ILLEGITIMATE CHILD.  And I understand the guy in TFA who posted that BRIAN BURKE HAD AN AFFAIR WITH A REPORTER AND FATHERED AN ILLEGITIMATE CHILD took down his post that BRIAN BURKE HAD AN AFFAIR WITH A REPORTER AND FATHERED AN ILLEGITIMATE CHILD because there was really no proof that BRIAN BURKE HAD AN AFFAIR WITH A REPORTER AND FATHERED AN ILLEGITIMATE CHILD and so he didn't want to perpetuate the rumour that BRIAN BURKE HAD AN AFFAIR WITH A REPORTER AND FATHERED AN ILLEGITIMATE CHILD.

Honestly, I don't see why the rumour that BRIAN BURKE HAD AN AFFAIR WITH A REPORTER AND FATHERED AN ILLEGITIMATE CHILD has gotten so much traction.  No one would really believe BRIAN BURKE HAD AN AFFAIR WITH A REPORTER AND FATHERED AN ILLEGITIMATE CHILD.

I hope the Fark community will join me in doing our best to dispel the rumour that BRIAN BURKE HAD AN AFFAIR WITH A REPORTER AND FATHERED AN ILLEGITIMATE CHILD.

2013-04-30 01:57:19 PM  
so, you are telling me that I should not believe that BRIAN BURKE HAD AN AFFAIR WITH A REPORTER AND FATHERED AN ILLEGITIMATE CHILD and by no means should I post this to my Facebook wall.  I should also not waste my time tweeting that BRIAN BURKE HAD AN AFFAIR WITH A REPORTER AND FATHERED AN ILLEGITIMATE CHILD because it is unequivocally not true.  And whatever I do, I should not blog that BRIAN BURKE HAD AN AFFAIR WITH A REPORTER AND FATHERED AN ILLEGITIMATE CHILD because that would be hurtful to such a fine, upstanding individual.  Thanks for the heads up.

I'm not sure if I understand it.

If there were rumors floating about that I had sex with Hazel Mae, I'd continue to spread them.

Now, if it had been about getting Hazel McCallion pregnant then, yes, I'd deny that.  Although that would be pretty spectacular.

I hadn't heard that BRIAN BURKE HAD AN AFFAIR WITH A REPORTER AND FATHERED AN ILLEGITIMATE CHILD, but I am more than happy to help figure out whether it is true that BRIAN BURKE HAD AN AFFAIR WITH A REPORTER AND FATHERED AN ILLEGITIMATE CHILD. Does anybody here know whether BRIAN BURKE HAD AN AFFAIR WITH A REPORTER AND FATHERED AN ILLEGITIMATE CHILD? Are there any news reports from CNN saying that BRIAN BURKE HAD AN AFFAIR WITH A REPORTER AND FATHERED AN ILLEGITIMATE CHILD? I suppose I would even accept a Fox News report saying that BRIAN BURKE HAD AN AFFAIR WITH A REPORTER AND FATHERED AN ILLEGITIMATE CHILD.

I suppose she ran out of Red Sox to bang?

I HAD SEX WITH HAZEL MAE AND SHE LOVED IT!!!

mjohnson71: The gentleman doth protest too much, methinks.


I'm sure he was bangin' her...no doubt. I assume some tests proved she was either not preggers...or it was not his...so he is free to deny now that he cut her a check. I mean...that had to be why she was doin' him anyway, right?

Brian Burke is a moron...and Hazel Mae was maybe "kinda" hot like 15 years ago.

While it would be nice to see those fights, none of those women are married to Brian Burke.

This. I mean, before today, I had no idea who BRIAN BURKE is. I'd never even heard of BRIAN BURKE, no less any rumours that BRIAN BURKE HAD AN AFFAIR WITH A REPORTER AND FATHERED AN ILLEGITIMATE CHILD.

Of course, I am not certain why I would even care if BRIAN BURKE HAD AN AFFAIR WITH A REPORTER AND FATHERED AN ILLEGITIMATE CHILD. But, hey, what do I know?
 
2013-04-30 05:19:12 PM  
Is this why Brendan Burke was murdered and raped by Glenn Beck?

I hate Hazel Mae, she was horrible on Sportsnet

Good ... been following the threads for the last couple of seasons. Looking forward to this year.
Nice to see the majority of farkers can enjoy the games, regardless of the outcome. The percentage of venom-spewing asshats (usually fans of teams that don't make the playoffs) is usually small, and said asshats usually out themselves early and end up on the ignore list.

Is there a consensus ignore list? Users or alt-accounts that have pissed off everyone with their trolling? A Hall of Shame, if you will.

Seriously?  This kid is a journalism student and he doesn't know that you can't make a defamatory statement legal by saying "I've heard rumors this guy fathered an illigetimate child"?  Even in the US that's true, and Canada's far from the US when it comes to libel laws.

Throw the book at him for being a dumbass and not studying in school.

If he prefaced it by saying "I've heard rumors" then its not a statement of fact.  Merely a repetition of somebody elses statement.  Otherwise the news would be sued into bankruptcy whenever they report inaccurate information (See: Newtown Shooting)
