Default Don Cherry fired by Sportsnet(not CBC)

I never thought I’d see the day. I have thought for a long time that someday Don Cherry step down, or aside as a result of something he said on HNiC. Didn’t think it would be this, though. Shocked, and yet not surprised. Wow. 85 years old, and he goes out like this. I remember years ago, Cherry used terms like ‘Chicken Swede’, and purported, frankly, racist opinions about many European ethnicities. Swedes, Russians, Finns, French-Canadians/Canadiens being ‘picked on’ at best, discriminated against at worst.
I have heard that Brian Burke will fill Cherry’s role on ‘Coach’s Corner’ for now.
Where do we go from here? I don’t know. One wonders if Ron MacLean will continue on, or if HNiC will completely go scorched-earth with the first intermission and completely rebuild the thing from the ground up?

I used to love Don Cherry but honestly I’ve stopped regularly watching him the past many years ... like the past 7-9 years of rarely watching him.

He rarely makes a valid point anymore ... can’t seem to put two thoughts together ... he’s totally out of touch with today’s NHL, I’m sick of hearing the same stories over and over again, his act tired on me ... I was really hoping he would retire this summer.

The fact is since cutting the cord Almost seven years ago I rarely ever watch a HNIC feed ... and if I do I fast forward the commercials and intermissions ...

I like a lot of his pro-Canadian stance don’t get me wrong ... as much as I think he’s out of touch with today’s NHL he’s also out of touch with today’s society .... you clearly cannot say stuff like he said or used to say on TV in this country at least, without serious repercussions.

In the USA a racist president can run for Re-election ... in Canada a racist commentator gets fired ... I prefer the latter environment to live in and raise my kids in .... not the former ....

So I say

Good riddance Don Cherry ... sportsnet, what took you so long?

Did you guys even hear what Don Cherry said. It wasn’t even that bad. “Don Cherry is right” is trending at number 2 right now on Twitter and there are multiple petitions out with tens of thousands of signatures. Sportsnet is taking a beating.

I agree, what he said wasn't bad. ...It just didn't fit with sportsnet politically correct narrative. Our prime minister got a free pass on his numerous blackface appearance's, yet Don Cherry mentions wear a poppy and be thankful you people who come to this country and he gets blacklisted. ...Hypocrisy. ..Mainstream Media/google/facebook/ twitter entertainment industry etc all lean in a certain political social way. ''Agree with us and your safe, disagree and your gone '' .

The only thing that Cherry said that I disagree with was his assertion that the only people that are not wearing poppies are immigrants. That is a xenophobic point of view.

Should the Icedogs try and recruit Cherry for a coaching job to replace Burke?

Anyone who has been following the Ice Dogs for a long time would not be in favor of your suggestion.
Don Cherry was the original owner of the Mississauga Ice Dogs and apparently it was not very good situation.
I fired more coaches than any other team and even fired himself as head coach a number of times.
He is 85 years young...I believe that you may have been joking LOL

It's fairly obvious the world has evolved while Cherry hasn't. I'll take just about anyone as head coach over Billy but an 85 yr old xneophobe isn't one of them.
