Afternoon Line- Don Cherry

Oh, absolutely, I belong in the Hall of Fame. I was coach of the year everywhere I went, in the American league. I coached Team Canada and the whole deal. Of course I deserve to be in.

NO, NO & NO. It’s bad enough Bettman gets to be enshrined. Enshrining the xenophobic Cherry just because he talks louder than most would be a ridiculous. His list of accomplishments is quite short. He never reached the peak of his profession and had problems working with others no matter where he worked. He’s is quite to criticize others but never takes any personal blame.

The Hall isn’t filled with the highest character people but it is filled with people who either were near the top of their professional or were highly respected by their peers. I don’t think that’s the case with Cherry, one bit.

Say what you will about Don, but he deserves the honor more thanBettman and an earlier commissioner Gil Stein who was literally in office for barely just over 1 calendar year. Look it up!!  sick
