Just to recap for any CBC lurkers out there:

Don Cherry doesn't know his ass from a hole in the ground about the Habs after he's got a couple beers in him. Get him out of our post-game.

I'd rather watch anything, in English or French, rather than the Bruins broadcasts on NESN with Jack Edwards and Andy Brickley.

If Cherry is allowed to bash the heck out of the refs to support his team, why aren't the fans allows to bash the heck out of him? Only seems fair.

Gilles Tremblay, the long time hockey analyst played against Cherry and all he had to say about him in his book was "Cherry etait un peureux." wich translates to "Cherry was yellow"

The way he brought back the Kovy fake injury from way back in the Rangers-Nordiques series was tasteless. They should make a show of all the crap Cherry did over the years. It would turn into a 12-part mini-series.

Let the baby cry, just looks like a fool. 30 years later he still can't get over his epic defeat to the habs who ended his coaching career.

History marches on, habs crushing the bruins once again, cherry getting the hockey equivelent of 'nam flashbacks.

And my uncle said Cherry used to get beat-up all the time in the NHL and in the minor leagues. I just want to see the footage.

Don Cherry is a retard. What CBC sees in this washed up old failure remains a mystery to me.

That said, I still think RDS broadcasting has a long way to go in terms of quality and professionalism. I watch both CBC and RDS in order to get different inputs about the game, and sometimes I just feel like both of them suck...

Well let's take solace that in the 28 years he's been on HNIC the Leafs have never made the Cup Finals and Boston has never won it.

Why should we ease on Cherry? It's Hockey Night in CANADA.

If you really disliked him that much, you'd hit the mute button, walk away, or turn the channel when he came on. Otherwise, it seems like he's someone you "love to hate."

He is what he is - entertainment.

Since Maclean shut Cherry up, I'm letting this one pass.

Reason and facts don't belong in this emotionally laden discussion. OUT!

It's not a dog show, dude. Hockey is pretty important in this country.

Cherry can be a pretty big loud mouth, I agree. I like to think of it as one Canadian who likes to speak his mind, personally, among many many who don't. For all those complaining about tax dollars...why don't you look to where Ontario and Alberta's tax dollars are going before you complain. Transfer payments is all that can be said.

Your sig was not right: still said like 15 to go. Its 14 now.

And i can tell you that he knows how to play for the crowds and he knows that if he manipulates a group like the Forces, he can get better sales of his vids. Hes just pulling heart strings everywhere for his profit and making money on our boys backs just stinks.

I have grown up in Army bases and i can tell you one thing: more guys hate him than you think.

But you just keep on closing your eyes and adoring your hockey idol...

Cherry should do his homework. Kovalev is already signed for next year. What an idiot

You show me a totally impartial hockey analyst and I'll show you someone who knows nothing about hockey because they have no emotional investment.

Allow me to give an example. In the 1998 Olympics, we got great coverage here in Canada. And because the announcers were Canadian, they tended to call the game as such. They wanted our country to win, and found it tough to hide it in their calling the game. Could anyone forget the end of the 98 Olympics for Canada? "He's gotta score! That's all! No, he can't do it..."

Did you all jump on him for being Canadian and wanting to see his fellow countrymen succeed? No, you were all as dissppointed as he was.

Is Cherry a great analyst? Maybe no. But he makes no secret of his allegiances, and still does a decent job of calling to attention the successes and failures of both teams, not to mention doing a lot for hockey in Canada. If you don't want to listen, change the channel, but please give it a rest with "OMG BIASED!!!!!1!!!1"
I agree with you to an extent but CBC is Canadian and not american. They never talk about the Canadian teams besides Toronto. I personally did change the channel and watched RDS and probably will for the rest of the playoffs.

CBC is supposed to be Canadian not an american, it is just to bad they never recognize the other 5 teams in Canada. Since we do pay for it.

I remember watching Dallas and Oiler series and they were cheering for Dallas, like what the *&^%, this was in 2003. Bottom line CBC is getting all the viewers from Hab fans and they might lose in there ratings. Last time 2004 they did the same but now people have RDS as an alternate and are pretty fed up with CBC. I am any way, I could care less if it is in english or french. I pay for RDS but at least I know what I am paying for.
