Re: Time To Fire Don Cherry Off CBCOct 11th, 2011
Look I get that your not pleased with Cherry's comments, but what does any of this crap have to do with soldiers having PTSD. Better yet, if you are going to start making comparisons to soldiers how bout you check out the salary difference between a soldier and a millionaire hockey player. Check out the healthcare available to a soldier and a millionaire hockey player. Check out what kind of mental health is available.
Just like your comment to me about showing sensitivity towards depression. Ridiculous. It's too bad that the hockey player you mentioned from your home town took his life, in fact it's quite sad, but I've seen more than my fair share of this sort of thing and perhaps you ought to think just a little when you make a comparison between a soldier who is exposed to horrors that are life changing to a millionaire hockey player who gets in a scrap on the ice.
By the way, did Rick Rypien have drug issues?
Maybe instead of complaining with soldier comparisons and riffing on Don Cherry (which by the way just fuels his already great ratings) you should demand Gary Bettman clean up the NHL.
Why should someone be looked down on because of a mental disease just because their a hockey player?
The analogy is good,people are people and no one is any better then the other.
