    Just get rid of the ever-annoying Ron MacLean and the show would be fun, informative and passionate.

    Does this qualify as a violation of the TOS? :D

    But in all seriousness, anything involving Hockey cannot be complete with Don Cherry chiming in with his unique perspective.....to go along with his unique attire.

    lol same old "dinosaur, bigot" whining.

    regardless of whether you agree of disagree with him, it is so refreshing to watch someone give a staunch, non pc opinion.

    how can you not enjoy the segment?

    "Don Cherry doesn't like my favourite players/teams"

    In all seriousness, I still love Don. Yes, he's hanging on to his mind about as tightly as Brian Burke ties his ties but he cuts out all the BS and gives a typically unique perspective. He's entertaining, that's the bottom line

    Exactly......I may not agree with everything Grapes says, but his segments are almost always highly entertaining, which is the sole reason I enjoy them.

    Cherry was the only guy with the insight/guts to call out Niskanen for his blatant cross-check to Crosby's head in last year's playoffs. Ditto on Manning purposely piling McDavid into the end boards the year before when everyone was saying it was accidental. At this point in his life, not afraid of the repercussions (legal and otherwise) of telling it like he sees it and he's right more often than the more pc-orientated commentators are. Don't always agree with him but he's knowledgeable.

    Unique attire? What Broadcaster doesn't have his suits tailored from drape material?? :snide:

    Love Don, absolutely love him. Hope they give him as much time as they can. The one thing on TV that is must see to me is Coach's Corner.

    (Best Avatar on this site Carey. Well maybe along with mine.)

    He was very - very vocal about the change being needed on icing too, due to injuries. He is a h e l l of a lot more astute and sensible than most people realize.

    Just realized that I said "anything involving Hockey cannot be complete with Don Cherry..." when I meant WITHOUT him.

    I mean Hockey without Don Cherry is like Hockey without skates....or the sticks...or the puck....or life, in general. ;)

    He has a right to express his opinion on Cherry's comments just as much as Cherry has a right to make them. Freedom of expression doesn't mean freedom of criticism.

    Absolutely both sides have freedom to say whatever they wish, the blanket statement "appeals to all" is an attempt to say Cherry's wrong & this poster is right because their views are correct according to THIS poster's moral compass which is typical * of a certain segment of society today.
    That particular segment is really nice to you until you disagree with them..then you get statements like this poster made.
    *Old dinosaurs...guess how this poster feels about older people.
    I called them on it because I have the freedom to do so.

    Dinosaurs doesn't always refer to age, it can also be a state of mind.

    Perhaps not being Canadian means I haven't bought in to all his BS, that;'s my opinion though, I know some like him I just can't see why.

    Fair enough I over generalized your position so my apologies.
    Cherry is harmless fun and the poking fun at Swedes or whomever is shtick to troll overly emotional fans.
    It’s all ratings.
    He has certain political views that some don’t like but it cuts both ways.
    Rather live here or US where you can agree to disagree it makes discussion fun as many times an open mind leads to growth
    Cheers
