from Steve Buffery of the Toronto Sun,
Six times during his five-minute show on Hockey Night in Canada, Coach’s Corner star Don Cherry griped about the lack of time for his segment, often with a pronounced scowl on his face. He even threw his arms up in frustration at one point.
One sports TV insider suggested that it was almost like Grapes wanted to get himself fired.
Since Rogers Sportsnet secured the rights to Hockey Night in Canada, Cherry’s segment has been cut from seven minutes to five, something Cherry was never happy about, which was obvious during his show on Saturday night. It’s likely any other broadcaster griping the way Cherry did would have been sanctioned or disciplined in some way.
