This isn't over by a long shot. Can't see how Ron Mclaine can do anything other than his Hometown Hockey stuff now.
Wait! Isn't that about grass roots and heritage to a large degree? Ironic.

I personally think Cherry was getting a little too shaky to keep going much longer but to get canned for something that could have been straightened out is preposterous.

There was an essence of directional content I suppose, but that happens all the time, everywhere, and those who scream racism the loudest
and most expeditious, I find, to be amongst the most racist of all. Glory seekers they are.

Sportsnet is sanctimonious and it's reeking. Ick. Yup! More shit to hit the fan at hand.

Dumb question; Who edits out or doesn't show the violence, ugly hits, fights, etc., in the youtube game-highlights?
Guess it's youtube but I actually don't know. It's on TV highlights. Youtube has lots of hockey fighting in other features.
Don't get it.

FYI;

Coaches Corner is taped Saturdays..because the regional games don’t all finish the 1st period together, it actually ran 3 times.. Leaves/Flyers, Habs/Kings and Sens/Hurricanes. That means
@Sportsnet taped it, heard what was said, yet let it run 3 times

Cherry’s shtick was old years ago and he should have been put to pasture along with Bob Cole. His end has been coming. You could take his words a couple of ways - benign or malign - but it depends on how one interprets ‘you people’ it’s easy/lazy/convenient to draw a direct line towards xenophobia and racism, but I see something beneath that resonates more soundly and it’s this: “you people” can mean all those sanctimonious “Toronto the Good” types who claim a vision of Canada utterly at odds with much of the rest of Canada but which they arrogantly believe is what Canada should be - and it doesn’t include the old-Canada values such as recognizing war-mongering baby-killers. Toronto has always been ambivalent at best towards the military and more often hostile. We’re seen as a white, old-Canada anachronism. The fact so few wear poppies - regardless of ethnicity - is telling. Cherry’s views, I take as an indictment of the GTA and the other urbanites who are at best indifferent to the sacrifices made by Canada’s soldiers, and more often contemptuous. Look who they put into office in Ottawa??

I don't agree with everything Cherry says and never have.

But this reeks.

Budweiser supports Sportsnet according to TSN. Meanwhile CBC is expressing their biased narrative.

A pile of corporations eroding our freedom of expression.

Fuck them.

Twisting Don's intention through his choice of words to suite their agenda to place us under more and more control.

He probably should have said ‘ALL people should be wearing poppies in support of our veterans past and present’ or something to that effect.

Nitpicky chickenshit reason to guilltine him at the end.

He probably should have been gassed years ago due to the fact that he makes little sense anymore. He like Bob Cole overstayed his welcome. To fire him for this is weak. Shoulda put black face or brown face on for the cameras like the leader of the country likes to do in his spare time.

You people, who come over here... are dandy. So I'd like you to know you're included in my poppy annual poppy drive!

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.
Ron nodded in agreement with Don's opinion on a controversial issue

... and added a thumbs-up for good measure!

Then, after being informed by his employer that Don's opinion was Wrongo Luongo

... Ron issued an apology for what Don said and added... he really wasn't listening. :roll:

Where I come from if you publicly agree with a strong opinion, you must stand by that come hell or high water.

Or you out yourself as a "chickenshit" weasel.

To sell your soul because your job is on the line is chickenshit.

To nod and give a thumbs-up on an opinion you don't truly agree with is chickenshit.

To claim you weren't listening is chickenshit.

To stab your longtime buddy and partner in the back is chickenshit.

In short: Chickenshit, chickenshit, chickenshit. :mrgreen:

Reminds me of his chickenshit attack on Mr Burrows once upon a time from his safe place.

And his chickenshit "showdown" interview with Lord Bettman once upon a time.

And the million times he displayed the chickenshit lack of nads to stand up for himself on his own show...

He meant his apology.
"I apologize for what Don said on our show and I actually didn't hear the part for which I gave him a thumbs-up"

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?
Folks don't hate him for not being perfect. :eh:

Folks hate him for being as chickenshit as a prison bitch!

I know this is hard for you, but try to see it from our point of view...

The funny part of all this is that he didn't specify race or anything...the faceless offended hordes jumped to that conclusion based on their own subconscious guilt

We can all come up with ways Cherry could have expressed his sentiment better - "people should wear poppies".

But Don had ample opportunity to correct the record to say what he really meant, but he was too damn stubborn. Nothing wrong with that, Cherry made his bed and chose to lie in it, I'm sure he was under no illusion as to what the consequence would be of not clarifying/apologizing.
