People need to remember that Don is an entertainer. You know that you're going to watch him again next coaches corner. He does his job and does it well

Don was much more controversial in 80's than he is now he's toned down his act due to political correctness and that is sad.

I swear people like to pick individual parts of what Cherry says rather than understand what he's saying.
Cherry wouldn't have made a comment tonight if Yakupov was Canadian.

There is a thread dedicated to this segment even though a lot of people that post here don't agree with Cherry.

Doesn't matter if people like you or hate you, as long as they are watching you.

Exactly. Don is controversial, so it always has people talking. Had he said typical clique things, Coaches Corner would've been dead long ago. People may not agree with what he says, but he's doing very good at his job.

Don does have that je ne sais quoi similar to grandma after a few glasses of sherry during the holidays.

I don't know what is worse... Don Cherry's comment or all the white-knighting sports reporters reacting on twitter.

Funny how old Ron had no problem "making the call" during his chicken-**** hack job on Burrows a while back though.

I really hope the CBC passes on the Canucks series.

As usual, I completely agree with everything Don had to say tonite, the man is a legend and knows what he's talking about.

It's odd that the thing he choice to go at Yakupov about was that goal celebration and not his ridiculous dive.

To be fair, we don't have a choice when he's slotted into every intermission. Most people aren't going to randomly change the channel to shut him up.

Haha yep... I'm sure the reporter herself didn't care, but all these guys running to her defense are hilarious

Question to all of you:

Was Don wrong in what he said (disregard the very clumsy way he expressed himself)?

If female journos can hang around in men's lockerroom around naked guys, shouldn't male journos to be able to do the same in women's lockerroom?

Anyway, highly entertraining as always. Coaches Corner is the best.

Amen! And as I expected, the crickets disappeared tonight. For those of you overreacting, its because Don RESPECTS women, that he feels the way he does. Nothing at all wrong with the concept of what he said, just the words he chose maybe. Was howling when McLean was cringing. The GIF's are hilarious.

I also found nothing wrong with what he said about Yakupov & he qualified it by saying he LIKES him.....he just feels like he should tone it down a bit. Just his opinion, does not mean its right or wrong, just an old school view.

My Twitter feed is about to turn to retweeting and responding to feminists for the next day or so. Just like when Musberger got too complimentary of the AJ McCarron's girlfriend.

Females being allowed in male dressing rooms while males would never be allowed in female dressing rooms is just another example where equality doesn't mean equality. That's okay though, personally I disagree with Cherry strongly, as long as the players are okay with females in there (which I'm pretty sure they are).
