Re: Time To Fire Don Cherry Off CBCOct 12th, 2011
The point was the Damian Goddard took a stand against a pervasive politically correct viewpoint of our times, stated in a personal opinion protected by freedom of expression.. and was summarily fired for it by Rogers Sportsnet.
You can't see a correspondence between this and the clamour to fire Don Cherry??.. it has the same roots. A tyrannical conformity has established itself as to how Sports reporting can be expressed.. like it has in so many aspects of public opinion.
I see that men play sports and gays do not - It is a conspiracy of gays to undermine Manly things -
