You're just making that up...

They thought he had the contagious enthusiasm to make the campaign work.

Ok I made it up.

Met Matt in Adelaide last year at the Dees Crows game and a had a solid 5 minute convo, seemed like a genuine bloke who loved the clubs and his job. wish him well.

A move is probably a good thing.

Writing puff pieces for the team you barrack for could leave you unfulfilled!

So, does anyone actually know why he's leaving, and where he's going?

As others have said, seemed like he loved the club, and did his best to put a positive spin on things, even when there wasn't much to be positive about.  All the best to him whatever his future may be.

Geezus, can you lot imagine how hard it would have been to interview our players after yet another flogging, year after sodding year?

Guy deserves a medal of some sort.

Thanks for all your efforts Burgs, I will be happy to donate a kidney to replace the one you lost drinking heavily after trying to put a positive spin on our rank performances for so many years.

Respect brother.

Had a good chat with Burgs at a bar one night a few years back - his heart beats true .

thanks for the work Burgo - I reckon he has a future in footy media if he wants it.

Personally I'm a little indifferent to his reporting style, but respect the effort, passion and professionalism he bought to the role.  Sounds like the dream job of every hardcore Demons fan, but I'm sure it would be far harder to pull the gig off than first meets the eye.

Any chance of turning the tables on him and getting him on the Demonland podcast?  Perhaps we could Max on and have him interview Burgs?

His Sunshine Coast training camp stories were an enjoyable read.

I wonder who his replacement will be?

I do, not his decision, will leave it at that

As for the couple of comedians with 'smart' comments, keyboard bravery at its finest

Actually, I edited my own post before I finalised it. I was going to say "Are you thinking the journalist Mark or the former footballer Russell" but thought describing Mark as a "journalist" was really stretching it.

I was a bit surprised many didn't thank him. He thanked everyone else

Sorry to hear that, Saty.  I appreciated his efforts in acting as a link between the players/coaches & supporters.  I hope something works out for him, and would like to wish him all the best!

Hope the club treated him with dignity, respect and some appreciation for the difficult job he had over recent years. 

As others have said, he came across as a genuine guy with a love for the club.

If true, that may be a worry.
