I was wondering when old Dump was gonna fire up the FIRE DON CHERRY THREAD.
I didn't restart this thread, but I agree its time to nuke Cherry. Rhymes with puke. He shows replays of Lindros getting a concussion, and says, "You'll never see hits like this again/" That seems good.
Get the psychopathic headhunters out of the game who have no respect for other people. And guys won't stop hitting, they will have to hit a bit more intelligently, and try to avoid the other guy's head, doesn't sound too hard. The games I saw last night had plenty of hitting. They guy's crankier than me.
He's an embarrassment to the human race, he has a one track mind, for 20 years it was Bobby Orr and for the next 20 it was Dougie!
Seems pretty simple ... if you don't like him, don't watch him.
But if you watch him and complain about how idiotic he is, CBC is laughing all the way to the bank. One might wonder who is the actual idiot.
I think he might be about to get a raise and more time for Coaches Corner on HNIC. lol Support The Troops!
WATERLOO—The Canadian forces’ best weapon may be Don Cherry and the particular brand of combat patriotism that he pushes on Hockey Night in Canada, according to a new study.
Don Cherry?s the face of Canada's new rock 'em, sock 'em politics: study - thestar.com
he plays a part on a tv show, that's his job, do you really think anybody could be like that in real life? have you ever watched family guy? as far as fighting in hockey? well I love the game and it is part of the game. I am a bigger basketball fan and in resent years things have changed in the nba to the point that it has hurt the game one punch thrown can cost a team the championship, and has. If you want to clean up pro sports a bit focus on the refs, they need more of them we could make it so they could have a meeting every 2 min. for 5 min. to figure out what to call so everything could be perfect, oh don't stop there, we could clean the ice every minute and have body doubles for players. What about change the game all the way and have 3 or 4 downs every 10 yards? Just saying....
He does play a moron on tv.
he's also living in the past, and he's also misquoting other people, and can get himself into trouble,
he should think before he mentions others names, when calling names such as pukes and hypocrites.
those 3 players have come forward and have said that they did not say the things he accused them of
and they want him to apologize and set things straight.
Why should Don be fired just because his opinion differs from yours?
have you ever watched family guy?
He does play a moron on tv.
I've always thought he was an idiot, and about twice every season he makes a good point.
He likes to see players hit hard and injured, that's his deal.
He was a lousy player...
...his restaurants suck...
If I was one of the players quoted, I would have said, "Who? Don Cherry? That old player? He's still alive?"
How is it possible an individual can become so hated while doing hockey commentary?
Look at it this way.....The guy is openly "Conservative" except in his clothes
And he supports the troops....
Tell me again....that you're suprised at the reaction of left leaning folks in this forum
Now that you know that.....you will come to hate him too. i'm sure
Or they could join folks who complain about their tax dollars spent on and by CBC...
CBC has tonnes of **** that my tax dollars are wasted on.
Ironically, HNIC is the one show that does not use taxpayer dollars. It makes its costs and then some back in advertising. Part of that is due to the huge ratings success of Mr. Cherry.
Now if you want to start a thread on how the CBC should be privitized/sold, I would fully support you on that. But that has absolutly nothing to do with Mr. Cherry.
Some evidence for the do-nothing approach:

Quote:Pays for itself and then some.
We estimate that the contributions of CBC/Radio-Canada to the Canadian economy, or the Gross Value Added ("GVA"), in 2010 was $3.7 billion, arising from an expenditure of $1.7 billion.
And one player that said that he didn't say those things apparently did say those things.
Cherry can be a little abrasive from time to time, but I think he's entertaining to watch(and does bring across some good points).
I doubt if hatred is the right word. I support the troops too. Cherry is just so full of himself to the point of being laughable.
I'd say it's time people that don't want to see or hear him, stop torturing themselves and stop watching him. Pretty simple.
