How do you feel about Don Cherry?
Sun, July 6, 2008

There are few Canadian public figures as polarizing as Don Cherry.

You either love him or you hate him.

And what’s not to love?

Grapes is pure entertainment.

Look at the other professional sports, most don't have a character like Don cherry. I don't agree with many of his opinions but he makes hockey fun (watch a baseball telecast, it's like watching paint dry). He has spent his entire life submersed in this sport as a player, a coach and a commentator. I can't figure out how some people can say he knows nothing about hockey when he was coaching the likes of Bobby Orr before these na-sayers were even snotty nosed kids. In a country with few traditions, institutions or icons, Don Cherry is right up there with hockey itself, the Hockey Night in Canada theme and Tim Hortons

Jack you are right on the money lad.As you say he shoots right from the hip. He knows more about hockey and the players better then all the so called experts.You are right.He says what he feels and don't care what ah nt one says.

Don Cherry has faults like all of us but as far as the game of hockey goes he is as knowledgeable as anyone in the NHL.He is also a great patriot who truly loves his country.

I have finally figured it out George O'leary is really Don Cherry!!!

Re: Don Cherry- There is a person who knows the game and is not afraid to voice his opinions. He is reprimanded to often by the so called experts of the game. The league and Betman know what Don is saying is 99% on the money. We Canadians are to interested to be politically correct, so the powers to be try to keep a close watch on Don. Heavens only know that he should upset the French press or the European players. Young European hockey players should be trained in Europe and not in Canada. Dont take coaching time away from our own young players. Keep the Swedes in Sweden where they belong. Don is a breath of fresh air in the stagnant atmosphere of what we call the NHL. If Don had Betman's job, there would be more NHL teams in Canada. We would be playing our own young players not all the foreigners. We cant make a statement like that. Don is the best thing that has happened to the NHL in a long time. Love the man. Keep up the good work.

Pete or is it Jimmy the American Idiot? Cherry is right about the soft Euros? What did he say about the soft euros? Are you referring to his famous go into the corner with six eggs and come out with a dozen? That was how long ago old man? 25 years ago when he referred to salming and hammerstrum. Talk about cyber tough guy, your a freakin idiot buddy and most likely a coward.

disgruntled suck hole

Cherry is right about the soft europeans. If fighting in the playoffs was at the same levels as it is for the regular season the europeans wouldnt touch the puck again. They are as easily intimidated on the ice as you are in here wimpy lmfao

get back to trying to make online friends to watch your back you lil punk, its all you are good for clown lol

I can almost guarantee you that both TSN and Rogers are both hoping for the day when CBC lets Grapes go and like the HNIC theme song he'll be scooped up in a flash. There are thousands who stop everything they are doing when Coach's Corner comes on. He gives generously to charities and is Canadian to the core. Most of all no one aside from immediate families shows more emotion for the loss of a Canadian soldier in middle east then Don does.

PJ Stock is both knowledgable and entertaining. During the playoff telecasts I found myself watching his five minutes vice getting a cocktail. While very witty he has a great insight of the game. Not nearly as abraisive or ignorrant as Don.
