The panel really could benefit from the perspective of someone who has played defence.

Maybe they need to do auditions?

Why would TSN want Burris?

He has allienated fan bases in one way or another of every team he played with.

If he kept playing, I'm sure he would have done it in Ottawa as well.

I don't agree with a lot of what he has to say...but he often says a lot of it purely to be contrast to the panel. He says some things that make one shake their head...no doubt...but he is actually very intelligent.

He has? where?

He's a great speaker, lots of energy. The TSN panel needs some new blood, good luck to him!!

presently we have OL, QB, SB/WR

definitely agree, a linebacker would be a huge plus on the panel.

Agree 100% as well . The last thing the panel needs is another guy from the O-side of the game , besides the panel would probably explode if you added Burris's enormous ego alongside Jock's and Milt's . Poor old Schultzy probably wouldn't get a word in edge wise with these three trying to hog the spotlight and all the face time on camera . :o

Personally although I'm not a big fan of the guy I think that a Ricky Foley could fill the void of a defensive voice on the panel nicely . Also another Defensive player who I think would do an excellent job on the panel after he eventually retires would be Odelle Willis . Both these players probably only have a year or two left in them before they retire and if I'm TSN and I'm looking for a defensive perspective on the panel then these two would be at the top of my list .

....Burris will save tsn.....just like he said he has done with regard to a few franchises in this league... :lol: Doesn't need saving you say....If they keep employing the likes of Rod Black on CFL telecasts ..they just might :lol:

Fan bases? Hell, he's even alienated the whole TSN panel! Looks like he'll have some kissing up to do if he wants to work at TSN.

I already don't watch any of that fluff crap. This will just be one more big reason not.

For those to narrow minded to have noticed Burris is a full fledged megalomaniac.......
