Don Cherry On John Scott

Don Cherry ripped into John Scott tonight..

from Sean Fitz-Gerald of the National Post,

“You turned on a little guy like that,” Cherry said, of Scott, during his signature segment on Hockey Night in Canada. “And you know what I call that? A big guy? I’m calling you a bully, and a bully to me is a coward. That’s what I think of the whole thing; a bully is a coward. To pick on a little guy.”

The incident received widespread attention.

“This hurt everybody,” Cherry said. “First of all, it hurt Rolston, the Buffalo coach. You’re going to say, ‘How? He put the guy on.’ Because now he’s got a reputation — warranted or not — that he puts a big guy on to attack a star. So he’s hurt....

Cherry, not known for speaking out against enforcers, took it one step further.

“John Scott, you should be ashamed of yourself,” he said. “I was going to let you off the hook until I saw you the next day, laughing about it.”
