CBC puts a 7-second-delay on Cherry:

CBC puts Cherry on seven-second delay

OTTAWA (CP) -
The CBC has placed controversial hockey commentator Don Cherry on a seven-second tape-delay leash and publicly reprimanded him over what management called an ``inappropriate and reprehensible personal opinion'' expressed on air.

The announcement came Friday from Harold Redekopp, executive vice-president of CBC Television, and capped a day of Cherry-baiting invective that rivalled some of the former NHL coach's colourful public pronouncements. ``Mr. Cherry's role on Coach's Corner is, and has always been, as a hockey commentator,'' Redekopp said in a release.

Well, maybe because WWE is American and CBC is Canadien and a STATE TELEVISION.

Americans can do anything they want to the French. They have replaced Russia as the people to blame. Our federal government is French, you can't even say they wear visors without being investigated.

The point is he said French Canadians are chickens because they wear visors. Because he generalized that all French Canadians are chickens, that is racism and a government organism cannot accept it. Cherry went too far and he should be fired. He shouldn've been fired a long time ago. French Canadians pay roughly 25 % of his salary, he can't say things like that. State Television cannot promote racism toward its country's people. It's as simple as that.

Plus, saying that players are chickens because they wear visors is one of the most stupid things I've ever heard. This guy must have burned his only remaining brain cell. I respect a player that wears the visor mush more than a player that doesn't wear it. Health is much more important than a sack of ****'s perception. Why are people listenning to him anyway ? He's a moronic person that makes a living of laughing at his own country and yapping on CBC, a station that is stupid enough to keep him there for way too long.

Our federal government is *Canadian*, not french. We're an ocean away from France and Europe. It just happens that our country is bilingual using both French and English as official languages.

This can be a healthy mix when people embrace their differences and act like adults. It can also suck when some folks have kneejerk, childish comments like yours above.

While the differences between francophones and anglophones stand out (like speaking a different language obviously will) I happen to think they are fairly superficial when you dig a little deeper and we share a lot more in common than one might think at first.

Ironically, one of the thing we share most in common is an unconditional love for hockey. Canadians are just hockey nuts. You'd think Canadian coverage would highlight that fact but no. Our national broadcaster CBC prefers to put a xenophobic, outdated, clownish retard on the air. Thus, what could be an event that unites all Canadians ends up doing the opposite.

I stopped here. Cherry's comments might have been biased and prejudiced, but they sure as hell weren't racist. Since when are French Canadians a separate race?

I won't even try to respond to the government being an organism.

We call that a Storyline. And they are paying a lot of french canadians (Sylvain Grenier, Rene Duprée, Pat Patterson) in US money.

About Cherry; if you do not want to support that clown. Sent your complaints to www.cbc.ca or customer@mooresuit.com (Moore is the sponsor of Coach Corner).

Way too much PC involved here.

One day we'll live in a world where nobody can say anything and people won't be able to do much cause almost everything offends someone else.

Ok, maybe I'm exaggerating a bit here but does anyone else see a problem with all the censorship that's going around? It's almost ridiculous.

We have TV shows based around murder and psychos but people get offended when a sports caster makes a generalization, a *** pops out on TV (OMG A BOOBIE… EVIL) or a certain culture is mentioned in a video game (GTA: VC).

One day we won’t have a voice and we’ll only have ourselves to blame.

I am not anti-French, anti-visor, or anti-European, I just can't believe so much hype is from a simple line that someone wears a visor. How many times has he said something about Europeans and nothing has happened to him? I don't agree with his comments, but this is being taken waaaaaaay too far. No Montreal players (visor wearers, french, europeans) cared... why are we? Although I do agree that Cherry should stick to hockey, that way we won't have to argue unwillingly about visors and who wears them. No offense meant by my "kneejerk, childish comments". I actually love the French, and know French people.

cherry is from the old school remember that eh...you ever talk to an old farmer or older person ?if you do ask them some question about the old days and here's what i hear anyway

boys they dont makim like they used to..they cant build cars now a days like they did back in the 60 ..or we'd go to the legion and drink and get into a fight and then we'd buy each other a beer after the fight,..cherry has the old world point of views and there are many like him ..he grew up watching players play with no helmets,golies didnt wear masks,and it was old time hockey..now the players are dressed like the have body armour on..you put a picture of bobby orr or gordie howe,steve shut,larry robinson or who ever and then take some of the players now and compare the picture...wow what and equipment difference...thats whats wrong players feel to safe out there ..they hack and wack ,stick flyin eveywere's because the feel safe with all the gear on..i swear if the nhl made all players revert back to no helmet and should pads like back in the 80 ,there would be less injuries...i mean all these concussions and high sticks takin peoples eyes out like come on...was it that bad back in the 70 with no helmets and 80 ?...players feel to safe and have lost respect for each other...i think before they show coaches corner that they should run " comments made here are not the opinion of the cbc and and are sorley the views of don cherry and ron mclean"...then sit back and shut up or turn off the tv if yu dont like whats being said..i have the option to turn the channel if i dont like what on the tv like dirty comedy show or one's that use profanity or nudity they warn you before the show comes on..so do the same with don cherry and shut up right?...i been to the jusrt for laughs comedy show and comedien make fun of quebec all the time...but people just laugh..why?because there a comedian and they can get away with racism?...l

Well, it might not be how all the people felt, but to me, it looked like racism. It might not have been the best use of the word, but I don't know what other word I could've used. It was hate based on language, something Cherry seems to promote. I am a French Canadian and I don't live in Quebec, so we pretty much have to fight for our rights everyday. The fact that he said that on a station funded by the governement is what overwhelms me. For the organism thing, I just directly translated the word from French but I hope you understood what I meant .

Any canadian governement employee cannot use his job to publically laugh at either major linguistic group in the country. Cherry shouldn't be different. And it's not only that incident, it's more that these minor incident kept adding up and the visor comment is the direct cause for that. To all those that say it is nothing important, it was debatted today in Ottawa in the House of Commons and they are considering disciplining Cherry.

Yeah, the Canadian government is so oppressive toward French Canadians.

Cherry is an idiot and I hope this seven second time delay works well. I'd prefer that he be fired, but that will probably never happen.

IMO, they should focus on bringing unemployment rates down.

Cherry is a running joke, nobody should take anything he says seriously. That said, he shouldn't have said what he said, even if he is a senile old man. The CBC can't just pretend nothing happened, they had to do something about the "incident".

And then people will complain that Cherry got canned and that Coach's Corner became stale and boring. Doubtful CBC would go that far, unless people stopped watching his segment, in large enough number to affect their ratings.
