I think the city of Detroit dislikes having him there more than he dislikes being there. I've hated this guy since the Dallas vs. Vancouver series a couple of years ago. Anyone remember that series? It was a pretty amazing battle between Turco and Luongo. What I remember most about that series, however, was Burrows throwing cheapshot after cheapshot and every time Ott would try to get in his face, Burrows would run to the bench and hide behind Jeff Cowan. Where's Probert when you need him?

Pretty skimpy article. Taken out of context maybe? I would think so. He could be referring to the fact that playing the Wings will involve more travel than pretty-well any other team in the west.

It's like Kesler's often quoted "I hate Canada" comment. He wasn't referring to the country, he was referring to Team Canada and getting his game on. Still, every moron under the sun repeats it without explaining the context.

Jeez you guys. Get a grip. I honestly cannot see Burrows even implying that he hates any city.

You don't read much about Burrows do you? Good player, but he says stuff like this all the time.

lol why would Downey get angry over that? And what kind of homo rips on another guy for his weight? That's a chick insult.

maybe downey is a *** basher and he doesn't like fags checking him out??

Canuck fan here. I want to commend the posters in this thread for not lowering themselves as to dis our city in retaliation. Alex Burrows is quite often an embarassment to Canuck fans and this is one of those times. We just wish he would STFU and do what he is good at. With his work ethic he should be an admired player in the NHL. Instead he acts like a little tool diving and whining all over the place. If he concentrated on just the game he would be better for it as a player and a person. I won't bother apologizing for him but I will tell you that any Canuck fan that says they are happy with getting the Wings in the 1st round are lying or heavily medicated. I'ld much rather meet you in the final or better yet not at all. If Luongo doesn't get his s*** together I think we're done in 5 or 6. If he miraculously finds his game, I like our chances. So here's to a great series and better yet here's to you guys getting 5th.

well it's not like Detroit fans can really talk s*** about Vancouver, I mean come on now the only olympics we'd have is the ghetto ones; gold would be getting a book of food stamps.
There's no I in team, but there's a U in c***, so don't be little jealous c***s

I'll plant some drugs on him and make sure they put him the cell with my friend Big Bubba.

He seems like the type that needs some forced man love.

Okay. Let's see the off-ice press quotes where he disses other cities, or even other players. You know of them. You find them. If he indeed does this "all the time", you should be able to come back with quite a few of a different variety.

How did Bubba become your "friend" there puffy?

So I found this looking up so stuff on Burrows.


Just a little to add the the fire of hate towards Burrows although this was sort of funny. This was a few years ago.


"I was complimenting him on his potato farm saying he must like the french fries the best because he's looking a little chubby."

- Alex Burrows, on what made Detroit's Aaron Downey (above) mad enough to spear the Canucks' pest during Saturday's pre-game warmup


Am I the only one who think that is pretty funny?

On behalf of all Red Wings fans, thank you for these kind words. And if it's any consolation, we really don't want him here either. No offense to you guys, but if we played you, that would mean we'd have finished sixth. And we don't really want that. So thank you. And for the record, I've never had a problem in downtown Detroit. I've walked downtown, been on the People Mover, gone to Tigers games and numerous Wings games, and I've never had a problem, and met nothing but nice people. That town isn't half as bad as people make it out to be. It's all in how you make it to be.

Really guys, what he said was that bad?

What's he supposed to say? "The Wings are too good, if we play them we're stuffed".

He could have left the city of detroit out of it and just focused on the red wings imo...

All the things you do to me and all the things you said,
I just can't get enough.
I just can't get enough
We slip and slide and we fall in love and I just can't seem to get enough of...
