Whether you like Don Cherry or not, you are entitled to your own opinion about the polarizing host of Coach’s Corner.

But what has always been a bit headscratching is the reaction of some Grapes Bashers to Cherry’s penchant of honouring police and soldiers who have lost their lives in the line of duty.

What’s the issue here?

You don’t like it? You have a clicker. Use it.

The topic came to mind on Saturday night when Cherry paid tribute to the three RCMP officers who were gunned down in cold blood in Moncton on Wednesday: Const. Dave Ross, 32; Const. Fabrice Georges Gevaudan, 45; Const. Douglas James Larche, 40.​

As much as we all love the sport, some things are more important than hockey. We once again we reminded of that courtesy of Coach’s Corner. At least that’s the opinion here, whether you agree or not.

Watch Coach's Corner from last night below.  The talk regarding the RCMP officers starts at the 4:00 minute mark.

I have always been a fan of Don Cherry and his straight man Ron McLean. No apologies.

I do not agree with many things he says, but, I do not agree with lots of things other folks say either.

Lets Go Red Wings!!!!!

Honoring those guys is fine.

It’s the ethnocentric BS that gets him in hot water,
