Don Cherry Under Fire For His Recent Comments On Coach’s Corner

from the CP at CBC,

Don Cherry is in the limelight yet again, this time for complaining that he rarely sees people he believes to be new immigrants wearing poppies ahead of Remembrance Day.

The 85-year-old Hockey Night in Canada personality said on Saturday on his weekly Coach's Corner segment that he's less frequently seeing people wearing poppies anymore to honour fallen Canadian soldiers, and he singled out those he believes are immigrants in Toronto, prompting a swift online backlash.

"You people … you love our way of life, you love our milk and honey, at least you can pay a couple bucks for a poppy or something like that," Cherry said. "These guys paid for your way of life that you enjoy in Canada, these guys paid the biggest price."

HNIC And The Leafs

from Jack Todd at the Montreal Gazette,

Obviously, the column on Hockey Night in Canada and its slavish devotion to the Toronto Maple Leafs had struck a nerve. And while at least half the letters were from fans of the Canadiens, there were substantial responses from another Canadian NHL cities, especially Ottawa, Edmonton and Vancouver.

The verdict? People outside Toronto are mad as hell. They have no choice but to go on taking it from Rogers, Sportsnet, Hockey Night in Canada and (to a lesser extent) TSN — but they aren’t happy about it.

Hockey Night in Canada, it’s clear, has become one of the things that divide us.

Of the letters I received, 95 per cent were positive. Without exception, the negative letters came from Leaf fans, divided equally between attempts at an articulate defence of the HNIC approach and the inevitable “your a idiot” letters from charter members of Ford Nation.

The conclusion? Fans across the country are very angry with HNIC and they have three main complaints:

First, viewers across the country hate the Maple Leafs 24/7 approach in which the Leafs can do no wrong, even when (see Auston Matthews) they pretty clearly have done wrong. It’s not only Montreal — if anything, fans in Edmonton and Vancouver seem even more disenchanted with HNIC.

Video- Coach’s Corner Tonight

Topics discussed by Don Cherry and Ron MacLean include- Well-dressed men, bank passes by the Canadiens tonight, player of the night gettin awarded post-game, are the Leafs tough enough and Tavares is a target.

Very cruel to bench Jason Spezza on opening night plus Edmonton needed a player like Mike Smith.

And a mention of attitudes in MLB compared to hockey players.
