Don Cherry has to go

I am sure most of you caught Coach's Corner last night. We have all talked about Don Cherry's antics but last night he was a complete idiot. I agree on the fighting issue but this isn't my beef.

He says "Zubrus, Zubov,,same thing" to Ron McLean yet when McLean said Colin (pronounced it Colon) Cherry was all over him. This guy is a complete circus side show now and needs some serious anger management councelling. You can see McLean is afraid of him and walks on eggshells during the segment and if any of the CBC directors running the replay segments don't cue on the exact second, he has a freak out. It's only a matter of time before he loses it and hits Ron McLean or swears or says something completely out of line that will get him canned. He needs to go. He is a complete embarrassment to Canadians. A hypocrite, a biggot and a redneck in the worst way.

My tax dollars pay his salary. I believe I have a say. Like all of you do. Email CBC like I have.

Like it or not, he's probably a huge ratings (and cash) cow for CBC. Especially since each of his segments are typically intertwined with two commercial spots.

If the guy stuck around after his French-Canadian and European comments, he won't be leaving after what he did last night.

Oh give it up, yes he can be a sideshow at times, but c'mon hit Ron MacLean. FYI, Ron is not afraid in fact the banter between the two of them is quite hilarious at times with Ron gaining the upper hand. Numerous times I have seen Cherry speechless which I don't imagine many people would be able to do that to him. So I am assuming because I like Cherry I must be a redneck hick meself huh city boy.

And you're from B.C., so you'd be the opposite.

Your point is?

I agree, but illiterates everywhere would cry for shame if he was let go.

He is a crazy old man now. He says crazy things and never has anything to say hockey related of any relevance

McLean doesn't say anything because Cherry bullies him.

You don't like him, don't watch.

And your tax dollars pay the salaries of much more objectionable folk than Grapes, little fella.

Oh yes, you know what irks me, having my so-called tax dollars support a public corporation which is so blatantly biased towards the left of the political spectrum but that is for another discussion.

Actually, he's from Leduc.

I'm from Kingston.

Ron MacLean can hold his own against Don Cherry, now for some of the other pooh bahs who work for the CBC, you just might have an argument.

Cherry COMPLETELY bullies Mclean and thinks he can yell, raise his voice, put down anybody who doesn't share his redneck values. I am totally serious. If you agree with him, you are no better and have to grow up. McLean walks on eggshells.

I'd love to see Cherry get canned. He's quite simply not very good at what he does.

They can leave Bob Cole and Harry Neale on an ice floe too while they're at it. You shouldn't let those elders hold you back.

Speaking of that... Rod Phillips is a prime candidate for dismissal too. He's terrible at his job, which should be describing the game not fellating the Boys on the Bus.

He is entertaining. He is still an embarrassment. He is also influential on pea-sized brains.

I agree with that. I think Bob and Harry have to go too. They are way past their prime. I agree Rod Phillips is as well. I do not share the sentimental feelings here most have towards him. I only started listening about 5 years ago on the internet. he forgets people's names. he still called the Minnesota Wild the Minnesota North Stars this year. He is senile. Friends of mine who come over and I have the Oilers games on laugh at the mistakes he makes. They actually count them. Then again, we get to hear Jim Hughson all the time doing Canucks game. He is by far the best in the business. IMO. He is being groomed now for Bob Cole's job.

Wouldn't you just love to see McLean make Don look like the dumb-assed, crazy old man that he is.

That would be frickin priceless.

Ah the usual liberal tactic, because there people who support Don Cherry apparently we are the ones who need to grow up. Explain to me how I need to grow up Edmund Oiler, I am all fingers waiting for your intelligent rebuttal.
Perhaps the commentating from figure skating is more for your liking, no bullying, no fighting, no hitting, just cheating.

You realize Coaches Corner is about 25 years old right? This is the bit Ron and Don have been doing for decades.

It's a show.

That's some nice broad generalization and judgment you're pulling there.

If you're tuning into Coaches Corner for functional hockey discourse, you're watching the wrong intermission. Satellite Hotstove has you covered for that.

Ron and Don are, more or less, characters who go by semi-rehearsed scripts and are meant to entertain. If you really think Ron MacLean is scared of Don Cherry ... maybe you really should e-mail CBC. The Fifth Estate is always looking for good stories.

Gee seven minutes of listening to Don which you can turn off, gets your hackles up, but listening to Jim Hughson the Canucks homer and that former goalie constantly put down the Oilers doesn't.

That's best left to the rest of the Edmonton media.
