    sounds incredibly more terrifying than the Force used by Jedi's worldwide, rather take my chances against the Dark Side rather than Burke.

    Because it's a Dictionary of Terms describing Burke and Burke-isms.

    Kind of like the Becktionary from Futurama.

    hey now, enough of the quibbling, we need to get this going and get it in print, like I said earlier, Leaf fans would gobble this Dung up for $50 bucks a Burketionary, that is incredible instant funding.

    Burkefired: When Burke tries to weasel a small trade from another GM by threatening to draft a player he thinks the other GM wants, only to find out later that he missed out on getting a Pronger-like towering defenseman.

    Burke got Murray-ed.

    Burke wants to be like Murray, but can't.
