Burkian Hubris, Anyone?

If you buy something from an SB Nation link, Vox Media may earn a commission. See our ethics statement.

Is Burke a little short with reporters? Yeah. Is his demeanor, or, perhaps more accurately, his public persona, and the subsequent terseness with the media, something that could use a little work? Personally, I think Burke has got it down to a finely-tuned skill (for better or worse), but Michael Langlois wonders whether this gets a bit tiresome?

My question is:  do people tire sometimes of his seemingly constant edginess when asked certain things?  And does it bother you that it’s always "on my teams, we always do this…"  and "I always tell my players…"?

Not keen on debating Burke's public interactions? Head over the jump for playoff game recaps, news, and discussion.
