I thin Don Cherry is an idiot but to fire him for this incident is a bit much.

Haven't been a fan of Cherry for years, but just coming back from the ceremony at our local cenotaph and I have to agree, “You people … you love our way of life, you love our milk and honey, at least you can pay a couple bucks for a poppy or something like that. These guys paid for your way of life that you enjoy in Canada, these guys paid the biggest price.”

Over the Internet, you can pretend to be anyone or anything.

I'm amazed that so many people choose to be complete twats.

Cherry has always displayed xenophobia, in fact it was much more extreme in the past.

So what's changed? :mex:

No surprise of course that the weasel Ron MacLean threw his good buddy under the bus

... after nodding and giving a thumbs-up after Cherry's spiel on that Coach's Corner segment. :sly:

You'd think he flipped a pencil in the air.

Saddest part is watching McLean go holier than tho throwing Don under the bus.

Fucking chickenshit

Yes - I saw his apology, and the whole "I didn't catch it at the time" bs - but then, maybe Ron just learned to tune Cherry out over time.

As for firing Cherry over the comment - meh - he's said as bad or worse over the years, and it was uncalled for - but he should have got away with an on-air apology.

Knowing Don, I'll bet he refused to give an apology.

And I respect him for that.
