He is simply too daft to be able to absorb new concepts and is perfectly at home clowning for his drooling, knuckle dragging followers. Archie Bunker was entertaining but he was a fictional character........unfortunately Cherry is quite real.

Don Cherry rode Bobby Orr to fame and has taken advantage of that fame by being a xenophobic simpleton on HNIC. He was a terrible coach and is an even more pathetic human being.
That is so wrong and pre-conceived on hater or lack of knowledge of the game, I don't know where to start. Because you don't like physical play or fighting in the NHL doesn't mean that it's not an important factor.

If I were to ask you if you know your hockey, you'd say that you do, right? How many pro games have you played? What's your hockey experience at a level deemed worth talking about? So because you haven't played or coached that level doesn't make you less knowledgeable, right?

So why is the fact that Cherry hasn't coached in 30 years a factor again? Because his beliefs go against yours when it comes to style of play he (and I) likes?
