Hometown Hockey Is No More

from Sean Fitz-Gerald of The Athetic,

Ron MacLean says he will return to “Hockey Night in Canada” next season, but his weekly workload will be lighter, with Sportsnet confirming it has canceled “Rogers Hometown Hockey,” the show that hop-scotched the country for eight seasons.

It was not immediately clear what the cancelation meant for co-host Tara Slone, who did not return a message from The Athletic on Tuesday. A Sportsnet spokesperson said the network does not comment on personnel matters “out of respect for employee privacy.”

“There’s so much loss for some in this story,” MacLean said in an interview. “That’s first and foremost: I just think of those who are affected.”

Ahh, the ‘good old days of Hockey Night In Canada’ of the days of yesteryear-

Ward Cornell, Danny Gallivan, Brian MacFarlane, Howie Meeker, Dave ‘pencil flippin’ Hodge, Bill Hewitt, and of course, Don ‘Grapes’ Cherry.

Rogers and the PC/woke crowd have destroyed what used to be an icon. They can shove it.

(After throwing Cherry under the bus, not a fan of Ron Ma-Clean)

Cherry is a old bigot. His big mouth threw him under the cross-town local.

Just in case anyone isn’t getting it.

If you’re missing and yearn for the days when an old bigot could spew whatever he wanted on TV while someone sat next to him, increasingly-uncomfortable with what he was saying but unable to do anything about it… well I suppose there’s always FOX News for you.

Plenty of open bigotry in supposedly mainstream
media these days, in all directions, seemingly as a feature
more than a bug.

In case anyone thinks retiring one narrow-minded
backward-looking guy in garish suits solved that problem.
