The WOP half of me immigrated to Canada in 1903. The Scottish half of me immigrated to Canada in 1910, but for some reason Scots like Cherry seem to think this Country is theirs. That being said I don’t necessarily disagree with him, I just can’t fucking stand the generalizing cause it’s lazy as fuck racism. When I voted a few weeks back I witnessed races and religion of all kind so don’t tell me that white ass Scottish Don Cherry’s are the only Canadians that care. Just because you don’t put a poppy on your chest doesn’t mean you don’t respect Remembrance Day

293 lb tantalum and Little Mathownwy are two of the loudest whiners over at the piss pond regarding this issue.
I've been posting in the OT thread at HFCanucks about this.

Some poster named Hansen has been giving me free lessons on free speech and what should/should-not be allowed in a hockey forum.

Then the mods decided to delete a Hansen's post:
Love that minorities of all kinds should be hated, hurt, and suffer at the behest of white people being allowed to do whatever the **** they want with no consequence
:shock:

Like what the fooooock? :crazy:

Buddy Hansen also said he reads at the Corner all the time and doesn't approve of all the ad-hominems. :lol: :lol: :lol:
He’s the same mouth breather that said Rick Dhaliwal got clipped at AM650 because of the colour of his skin. Throw that in his face. It didn’t really get challenged much.

My Scottish grandfather who immigrated here in 1910 fought in the First World War, fought in France for 3 years between 1916-19. My uncle, his son, fought in world war 2 so I have a right to bitch about it, but I’m too old and less angry to give a fuck cause life isn’t that black and white to bitch at. But Doyle on the other hand is disrespectful and incompetent

I have just learned I’ve been fired by Sportsnet for comments made on Coach’s Corner Nov. 9,” Cherry told me in a phone interview. “No problem.” Cherry added: “I know what I said and I meant it. Everybody in Canada should wear a poppy to honour our fallen soldiers.” And Cherry said his words were not racial or bigoted but patriotic and respectful of our troops.

To keep my job, I cannot be turned into a tamed robot,” said Cherry. Still, he admits, being fired on Remembrance Day does hurt “because I would have liked to continue doing Coach’s Corner. The problem is if I have to watch everything I say, it isn’t Coach’s Corner.”

I suspect Don was offered the same chance at a mea culpa as the weasel McLean performed..

Not a fucking chance.

A jelly fish, has more backbone than Ron.
Over the Internet, you can pretend to be anyone or anything.

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

Ron is indeed spineless for throwing Don under the bus like that. Good to know who your friends are when the shit hits the fan.

It angers people because Don is wrong. New immigrants are just like everyone else, some do, some don’t whatever. Wearing a poppy is not a measure of how respectful one is. Don needs to get off his high horse.

BUT


No way should Don Cherry lose his job over what he said. It was not meant as hateful or racist he was just wrong. We all make mistakes let’s move on.

Fuck Ron and Rogers though

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

So what's changed? :mex:
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
Disagree. Ron is used to nodding along with Cherry's opinion. He meant his apology. Have you not been in on something that did not work out? MacLean is alright with me. I mean, WTF how many of us are perfect?

It was offensive but so what?
